Whether you’re a first-time homeowner or have owned multiple properties, there will never be a shortage of people who want to weigh in and give you home maintenance advice. While these people may mean well, these so-called nuggets of wisdom are often myths that you’re better off not believing.


In this article, gutter protection company Gutter Helmet® of Cookeville lists three home maintenance myths that could be costing you.

Myth #1: Use natural cleaners when cleaning your disposal.

Using a lemon to clean your disposal might seem like a good idea. After all, it’s a natural cleaner so it can’t be harmful, right? Wrong. Lemon is acidic, and its juices are more likely to corrode your disposal’s pipes than clean it. The same goes for coffee grounds, which will only end up clogging the pipes. So what’s a cheap, all-natural trick that actually works? Try baking soda, which costs next to nothing and won’t damage your disposal.

Myth #2: You should follow trends when remodeling your kitchen.

It’s true that the kitchen is one of the areas you should consider remodeling if you’re looking to increase the value of your home. However, using design elements that are too trendy can do more harm than good. A trendy kitchen will start to look outdated in just a few years. If you want to optimize your kitchen renovation, choose timeless design elements instead of picking what’s trendy.

Myth #3: Any gutter guard will do.

Not all gutter protection systems are created equal. In fact, some types actually cause more trouble than not having a gutter guard at all. If you want reliable gutter protection that will spare you the hassle of ever having to clean your gutters again, there’s only one product to consider: Gutter Helmet.
