Household Tips from the Pros Continued...

By Holly Peterson

 "Pay attention to your water bill, so you know what's normal.  Even if you can't hear it, you might have a running toilet or a leaky faucet somewhere.  If your bill is running high, call your plumber."
DAVID PASQUESI, Partner, Pasquesi Plumbing, Highland Park, IL

"A well-done tight-back sofa is far more comfortable than one with loose-back cushions."
MATTHEW O'REILLY, Owner, Matthew O'Reilly Furniture, Albany, CA

 "A keypad with an 'all off' button at the front door not only saves energy,
it looks much better than four or five switches, right?"
TONY DORN, Owner, Chestnut Electric, Greenwich, CT

"Steam is the absolute best disinfectant, and it works faster  than most household cleaners.  We use the Ladybug Steam Cleaner on everything from mattresses to floors to counters.  It even gets rid of mold, bedbugs, and fleas in seconds flat."
DIANA HENLEY, Owner, Natural Care Cleaning Service, Houston, TX

"There's a lot of misinformation about marble being too porous and impractical.  I still think it's the best kitchen counter material.  Put a marble poultice on a water mark for 24 hours and it will be completely restored."
ROBERT BAKES, Owner, Bakes & Company, Sag Harbor, NY
