Why to inspect the house properly before buying?

Buying a house is a big decision and an investment of a lifetime. So, before you seal the deal looking at those wall colors, it is must to make sure you’re investing in the right place. It is, however, hard to see problems for a normal buyer and tell setbacks beneath those walls. We cannot tell how the house has been readied. Maybe it was made to live, maybe to sell making a decent impression, or maybe the casual issues are concealed with a temporary fixture. So, before you give away your hard-earned money, you need to consider these in Nepal.

There are two types of issues: One that can be fixed and another that cannot be.

Therefore, inspect it properly. Do not be swayed by attractive wall paints and vibrant shades. There can be bug infestations and mold infections lying in the corner, ready to bring in trouble. If unchecked, it can cost you so much later to get rid of it, not including the tension it brings along. Identify the use of cheap wall paints from stained, peeled and faded surfaces. If figured beforehand, you can ask the seller to fix it before you buy in Nepal.

Also, if the house is older than a couple of decades, there is a risk of exposure to lead and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs) through old paints. It is not used anymore due to the threat it posed but if we get exposed to it again, it can have negative effects on brain development in children and serious ailments in pregnant women and many more. To protect yourself from that, you can inquire about it from the previous owner and if yes, you can ask them to repaint it.

Above issues can be fixed with little expenses and are considerable. But some issues can affect the lifespan of the house. There can be faulty plumbing and wiring that can turn out to be a major issue later. Or, the cracks and defect being effectively concealed, especially one caused by a major earthquake. Some house may even have a weak base made for selling purpose. These cannot be fixed and puts you under the risk during the major earthquakes and other possible natural calamities.

It is essential to figure it out and dodge buying such houses. If you are not sure of doing it right yourself, you can bring in a structural engineer to check for structural setbacks.

12 ways to make your flawed wall look better (Part – 1)

Here, we have listed 12 ways you can turn the flaws and awkward position of windows, light bulbs, and other things into beauty with little work, techniques and paints and hide those pesky flaws gracefully in Nepal.

  1. Art Collage

  1. Hang frames on a swing arm

You can hide the not so frequently used wall gadgets behind the art pieces, hanging it on a swing arm or a normal hanger putting it convenient enough to reach whatever you are hiding behind whenever needed.

Be it to cover the ugly wall colors or to enhance the grandeur of a room, you can add in a shop-style clothing rack available in Nepal that also contributes to solving your storage issues. It is more convenient if you are willing to display your favorite attires while concealing the walls as well.

  1. Use chalkboard paint

If you are planning to paint eggshell wall paints on the dented or damaged walls, don’t, as the gloss only highlights the flaw more. Use matte chalkboard paint to hide the blemishes instead, to give your walls a non-glossy texture that can be bought from the paint dealer near you in Nepal. You can even write fun messages on it to further camouflage the dents and blemishes.

Chalkboard paint should not necessarily be used only in the place with the kids. It can be used in several places to create unique effects.

  1. Put up the long curtains

To hide something big, or an off-center window, hang a long gorgeous ceiling-to-floor drape. It also contributes to beautifying the backdrop of bed or furniture. You do not necessarily need to hide the exact position. Instead, you can divert the attention to drape hanging it in the place where you want to draw it. You can hang it to make the entire wall disappear or fix the asymmetrical window as well.

  1. Fix a plain, bland ceiling

The ceiling is also called “fifth wall” as it has its own value as well as issues. To cover up the damage on the ceilings caused by water leakage or other issues and create a masterpiece, consider applying wooden ceiling panels. However, make sure to fix the damaged areas first.

While doing the paint job, not everyone wears old clothes and knows how to take precaution to save it from the spattered paints. Sometimes, even after taking the precautions, you may get drips on your new jeans accidentally or even brush up against the just-painted walls and smudge your favorite clothes. Well, mishaps happen and for that, knowing how to get the paint out of the clothes is essential in Nepal. Here’s how to do it right.

  1. Act quick

Stains of any kind are easy to remove when they are fresh. Therefore, to remove it, the first step is to take an immediate action which deals with the half of the problem. The longer you take more difficult the stain becomes to remove it.

  1. Know the types of paint

The ways of cleaning the paint depends on its type which means you have to identify the type of paint first. Compared to oil-based paint, water based paint is much easier to clean, but on the other hand, oil-based paint stays wet longer, giving you more time to get rid of it.

While buying the paint, it is best to take precautions and buy the things needed to clean up the mess earlier which includes cleaning supplies so that you can clean the stains in time. Also, check the labels of clothing to make sure the chemicals are good to use in it.

  1. Water-based paint

To remove the water-based paint stains, Isopropyl alcohol is effective which you are likely to have at home. You can also buy from the paint dealer near you. First, clean the stain with soap and warm water. If you are washing the stained clothes immediately, you can remove most of the wall paints just with it in Nepal. Next, pour alcohol on the stained area and scrub using an old toothbrush. Once the stain gets off the clothes, rinse it again and let it dry. If the alcohol does not work, try doing same with nail polish remover.

  1. Oil-based paint

Oil-based paints are trickier to remove from clothes, but not impossible. However, you need to harness yourself with safety precautions like wearing eyeglasses, gloves, and a respirator before you start working on it. Also, make sure that the place you are working is well-ventilated as the oil-based paint removers are flammable.

Next, scan the paint can label and find out which solvent is appropriate for the cleanup. Mineral spirits are normally used for the purpose. Before applying it, soak the excess paint with the paper towel, turn the clothes inside out and work from the underside of the stain. Then, place some paper napkins underneath the stain while carefully pouring the solvent so it can absorb it. Next, dab the opposite side of the stain with a cotton ball or swab to transfer the paint onto the paper napkins. Repeat it after replacing the napkins until there are no more stains and wash it according to its label instructions. Make sure to remove the solvents properly as the solvent is flammable.
