Here’s our obligatory disclaimer. Home repairs can be inherently risky and dangerous. Accidents can happen with power tools, plumbing, electricity, ladders, and more. Serious injuries and even death can occur if you don’t take the proper precautions. Remember, what might be safe for one person under certain circumstances may not be safe for you under different circumstances. What we’re saying is don’t try anything you learn about here (or elsewhere) unless you’re certain it’s safe for you. Please be careful, your well being is what’s most important.
