Bought a 1997 home on permanent brick foundation in very xcellent conditon. Just to keep things in tip top condition, I was told to put plasic underneath the house to keep moisture from coming up. The underneath right now in great condition per home inspector. Didnt know if that would be a waste of time do a preventative thing like that. I also heard about putting sand over top of the plastic or is plastic enough?
Also, without sounding too stupid, the kitchen floor has that cheap linonleum with those little indentions where dirt likes to settle that is hard to clean. What is the best cleaning formula to use without dulling the shine that will get up dirt etc. My swiffer mop not doing the job. Im used to ceramic tile that is so easy to clean. i lived in stick built house before but it was always so dusty and just old looking. first time i lived in a manufactured home.
Also one more thing, what is the trick to securing loose siding? There was a hurricane last year and some of the siding kinda popped out. is not secured all the way. I tried to pop it back in , but its almost like you have to stretch it to get it to pop back in. do you need a special tool? Also should i secure the siding before we power wash it? its just not secured in some places. I have it secured by duct tape right now so it doesnt flop in the wind. ..please dont laugh. thank you.
