Repairs - July 13 , 2015
I am a landlady but I did not plan to be , it kind of just happened . There are some days I work to do normal repairs and some days that the repair was caused by damage from others .
Today the damage was from others .
I have let this rental set when I should have pushed for it to be fixed so that I would have the extra income . Yes it takes money to fix the places but this time I did have most of the materials needed .
But when you do not keep a good eye on things people steal , like pipe ! There was not much copper pipe , all of it has been replaced with PVC pipe ( plastic ) now , so there was not much damage , more of just putting the puzzle back together .
I moved all the left over stuff from the inheritance / estate sale I had into one room . I gave away things that did not sell .
I cleaned the carpets , I had bought a carpet cleaner at an estate sale for near nothing and I used it for the first time today . It did not come with the directions but I figured it out . That saved me a lot of money doing it myself with my own machine. This is why I have a lease and No pets , its because people do not clean up after their animals .
Although the heat was bad , hovering around the 100° mark , I still mowed the grass .
I am getting close to having this one done , the tenant is waiting on me .
