Every home has it’s little issues no matter how new or old it is. It could be the low water pressure in the kitchen that you really can’t stand or that screen door that your cat has shredded with her claws. Maybe your front door squeaks every time it’s opened or a dripping faucet keeps you up at night. Whatever the little annoyance is in your home, there is an easy DIY fix for it. You just need to know what you are doing. Below you can find the solutions to 11 of the most common annoying problems that you may have in your home. You could tackle almost all of them in one weekend and live a more peaceful life. Maybe start in the bathroom with some caulk. If you have an old tub or shower and the caulk is old, grimy or not really there you can simply remove the old caulk and apply a new layer. Then you can head to those hair clogged drains. Skip the chemicals and instead use a snaking tool that you can find at any home improvement store. If the faucet is dripping, there could be a number of reasons for it, but it is most likely a worn out washer or O-ring. Shut off the water, pull the faucet apart and see if either part needs to be replaced before investigating other options. Once you are done in the bathroom you can work your way through the house including the kitchen, the squeaky front door and the nail holes in the walls around your home. You will be done in a day or two, and you won’t be able to figure out why you didn’t do it sooner.
It can be a real chore to deal with all of your home’s trouble spots and “quirks,” especially after you’ve learned to live with them. Sometimes it’s out of pure procrastination, putting off for months a minor repair that would take only five minutes to complete.

Whatever the case, these little annoyances can add up to much bigger frustrations, leaving us with a feeling that the house is completely falling apart. Never fear: We’ve outlined 11 of the most common annoying house problems and provided the quick-and-easy fixes that will bring your home back to tip-top shape.
