Avoid the Zap…Chap.

It seems like good advice when it comes to replacing light switches and electrical outlets in your Dallas area home.  How about if we give you a few tips, then you decide if you want to tackle the project yourself, or call in a certified electrician to do the job safely and guaranteed the first time?  Just sayin’.

Some things to remember when dealing with your home’s wiring –

1.  Don’t reverse hot and neutral wires…ZAP!
2.  Don’t cut the wires too short…ZAP!
3.  Don’t leave the power on…ZAP!
4.  Don’t install a tree-slot receptacle without a ground…ZAP!
5.  Don’t wire a ground fault circuit interrupter backward…ZAP!

Here is a DO.  DO call the professional handymen and electricians at Home Pro Services.  They have served just about every fix-up and repair need around the Metroplex for years.  See for yourself, visit on the web and see the myriad of services that they offer.  Just call (214) 886-3326 for Home Pro Services…Dallas’ handyman.

Events in Dallas for Valentine's Day

(Click the link above for more information)

"Whether you're looking for a unique and unforgettable date night or grand romance, Dallas has something for every type of couple this Valentine's Day."

Popcorn, Get Your Popcorn.

How about REMOVE your popcorn?  Oh yeah, popcorn ceilings were all the rage decades ago.  What they did was hide the imperfections so that no painting was required afterwards.  However, we found that the rough texture catches cobwebs and dust and it can be very difficult to remove and match if you have cracks that need patching.

Here are some important tips to follow when removing popcorn from the ceiling –

1.  Do a scrape test from a small portion of your ceiling
2.  Always test for asbestos if it is older than 40 years.
3.  Remove all the furniture from the room.
4.  Prepare for a Big Mess.
5.  Hire a professional already!

Just some of the steps above (with a lot more to follow) should prompt you to call THE handyman company in Dallas.  That’s Home Pro Services.  They will handle any and all popcorn removal and considering the price of popcorn at Metroplex movie theaters, do it for a lot less than you might think!  Call Home Pro Services at (214) 886-3326.
