• DIY Plumbing when You’ve Got a Nasty Clog

    Older houses often have plumbing issues, but no matter how new your house is, or how pristine your pipes, occasional clogs are inevitable. Knowing how to clear them by yourself will save you money because you won’t have to call in a plumber every time. Some clogs may require more than the typical plunger, but we’ve got the right tools to help you take care of them.

    First, make sure to choose the right tools for the job. You probably already have a plunger, which can be used for clogs in toilets, tubs, and sinks, but if you don’t, they’re inexpensive and easy to find. If your clog is further down the drainpipe and harder to dislodge, you may need a cable auger, also known as a plumber’s snake, which is a long, flexible steel cable wound around a spool fitted with a hand crank. These are made for just about any kind of clog, but a closet auger is made specifically for toilets. If your clog is very large, choose an electric power auger, which can cut through just about anything, including tree roots.

    If your sink is clogged, follow these steps:

    • Try putting baking soda, then vinegar, then boiling water down the drain.
    • Move on to a plunger, then move forward if that doesn’t work.
    • Unscrew the sink trap, drain water into a bucket, remove horizontal trap arm.
    • Feed the snake into the drainpipe and turn the crank to advance the cable.

    If your tub is clogged follow the same procedure with baking soda, vinegar, hot water, and then plunger, but if that doesn’t work:

    • Take off the cover from the tub drain, then clean the drain as much as you can with a bent wire.
    • If the clog is still not dislodged, use the cable auger.

    Most toilet clogs can be cleared with a plunger, but if not:

    • If not, use the auger.
    • Once you think you’ve got it clear, flush the toilet to clear the pipe.
    • Repeat with an auger if it’s still slow.

    There’s really no reason to invest in owning an auger for the occasional clog when it’s easy to rent one. When you rent, you get the added bonus of being able to ask for instructions and help in using the machine.

  • Preparing your Garden for Winter

    Winter is on its way, so it’s time to do some home maintenance in preparation. Your garden may have been beautiful all summer long, but it will need some TLC before the winter weather hits. Take some time to put your garden to bed for the winter season will make your life much easier when winter’s over and it’s time to do your spring planting.

    • First clean the garden, removing dead vegetation. Old plants don’t just look untidy, they can also harbor disease, funguses, and pests. Unwanted insects that munched on your plants throughout the summer may have laid eggs on the stalks and leaves, so removing these spent plants can help prevent a fresh infestation in the spring time. If your plants are not diseased or infested, you can bury them in your garden to add organic matter to your soil.
    • Pull weeds. Invasive weeds can be troublesome when your garden is growing, so deal with them in the offseason, so they can’t get a foothold in spring. Don’t put them in the compost heap or another part of your garden, because they can remain viable. Instead, throw them away or burn them, to prevent them from disrupting next year’s garden.
    • Get your soil ready for spring. Fall is a wonderful time to amend the soil with additions like manure, compost, bone meal, kelp, or rock phosphate. because adding them now gives them time to enrich the soil before spring.
    • Prune perennials when appropriate. Many perennials benefit from a fall pruning, but do a little bit of research before you start snipping. Some plants, like blueberries and raspberries, prefer a spring pruning.
    • Plant bulbs. Three to four weeks after your flowering plants have bloomed, dig up and divide any plants that looked too crowded or straggly. If you’ve already dug up your spring bulbs, you can replant them while you’re replanting fall bulbs.
    • Regenerate your compost. It’s easy to ignore the compost heap once the heat of summer is over, but this is a mistake, because it costs you the opportunity to harvest material composted over the summer and make way for a new batch.
    • Put down some mulch. When you mulch in the fall and winter, you can reduce water loss, protect the soil from erosion, and inhibit weeds, just as you do when you mulch in summer. Cooler season mulching serves another purpose too, though, protecting the roots of garden plants from the freezing and thawing that happens in winter.

    You may not have all the gardening tools you need to get the job done right, but renting them is an inexpensive, smart alternative to investing in expensive equipment.

  • How a Pressure Washer Can Help with Fall Maintenance

    Fall is a great time to tackle some important maintenance chores. The weather is cooler, so working outside is easier, and getting these tasks done will help you prepare for winter weather. Give your house a thorough inspection, and you’ll find that there are some things you really need to take care of before the colder temperatures and winter storms make it more difficult. Some of those chores may seem daunting, but if you have a pressure washer, you’ll find many of them may be easier than you think.

    A pressure washer can help with many of the chores you’ll need to do:

    • Slough off dirt and vegetation from your home’s brick or siding
    • Take off peeling paint so that you can give your trim a fresh coat
    • Clean your gutters
    • Clean the exterior of your boat, jet skis, RV, or snowmobile
    • Clean your driveway so you can seal it ahead of winter weather
    • Clean your deck and give it a fresh coat of sealant
    • Clean your fence so you can paint, seal, or stain it to make it waterproof
    • Clean out your garbage cans and recycling bins
    • Blast the sides of your drained pool
    • Clean your lawnmower and other tools before you store them for the season

    If you own your own pressure washer, it will need care before it’s packed up for winter. Especially if you live in a climate with frequent freezing temperatures, packing it away without preparing and winterizing it can cause damage that will require extensive repairs not covered by the warranty.

    • Make sure the machine is in the STOP position.
    • Detach the water supply hose and shut down the water supply line.
    • Detach the trigger gun and high-pressure hose, draining them properly.
    • Switching the motor back to the ON position, pour a solution of 50/50 antifreeze into the float tank. Use separate anti-freeze for the detergent suction hose, then run the pressure washer until the antifreeze escapes from the outlet.
    • Turn the switch back to STOP
    • Drain any gas, oil, or water left in the pressure washer.

    If you don’t have your own pressure washer, renting one may be a more practical option than purchasing. A-1 Equipment Rentals offers the best equipment rental in Redwood City, California, with a great selection of construction equipment as well as an extensive machine and tool inventory.

  • How to Use a Trencher

    If you need to dig a trench, it’s a no-brainer to get a trencher. While you could dig a trench by hand, why would you do that? A trencher provides a smarter way to work, because it makes the task much easier and faster. You might be intimidated by the idea of using a trencher, but in fact, they are not complicated to use.

    • Know where you’re digging before you start. Call your local utility company so that you don’t run into any underground wires or pipes.
    • Prep the machine. First, turn the fuel switch on and give it some choke. Then, turn on the key switch, lower the throttle a little bit, and put the transmission in neutral. Make sure the hydraulic pump is off, and pay attention to the wheels. When you’re trenching, the wheels should be locked in place, and you should only disengage them when you want to move the unit. Once you get the unit running, give it some gas, activate the hydraulic pump, and move the transmission into forward gear.
    • Start digging. When you’ve got the machine into position, engage the wheels so that they will work together. Moving the throttle up, throw the lever to start the chain and auger spinning, and lower the bar into the earth, at which point the trencher will begin digging. Lower it to the appropriate depth, which may take a few minutes. The auger will push the dirt to the side, and you’ll need to keep the gas on full throttle, controlling the speed with the transmission control.
    • Move backward. When you’ve got the bar all the way down, put the machine in reverse and start moving backward. Never stand in front of the trencher when it’s running, because it will throw dirt and rocks forward.

    Unless you’re digging trenches all the time, it’s probably not necessary to invest in purchasing one when you can just as easily rent one.

  • Update your Space with a New Coat of Paint

    Does your home décor seem a little boring or out of date? One of the cheapest, easiest fixes is fresh paint. Just about anyone can paint a room, and having the right tools makes it a breeze.

    Paint can be used in many different ways to make a big difference. You might paint an accent wall to draw focus with a bright pop of color, an interesting paint finish, or a pattern, like stripes. You might change the entire look of your kitchen at minimal expense simply by repainting your cabinets. Kitchens and bathrooms are great places to experiment with different colors, or you could update a bedroom by changing its hue. You can even paint your ceilings, which

    How to paint a room:

    • Choose the right paint. Take your time browsing paint colors and looking online at different home improvement websites. Once you’ve gotten the colors narrowed down, get some samples from the hardware store so that you can paint a few spots in the actual room and see what it will look like when it’s in the lighting and environment for which you’re purchasing it.
    • Prep the room. Move everything out, or push it all to the center of the room and cover it with drop cloths. Then get some painter’s tape and apply it to the room’s corners, base and crown moldings, and door and window casings, making sure to get a good seal. Remove outlet and light switch covers, applying painters tape to protect outlets and switches.
    • Use a paint sprayer to apply your paint. You can apply paint with rollers and brushes, but why would you? You can get a much smoother, more professional look with a paint sprayer. Have a brush and roller on hand, though, for the edges of the room and hard to reach places.
    • Use scaffolding to reach high places. Using a ladder can be precarious, so it’s better to paint like the pros do, with scaffolding to help you paint areas that are out of reach.
    • Keep the room well-ventilated. Opening windows and using fans will keep you from breathing in paint fumes, and it will also help to speed the drying process.
    • Clean up. Remove painters tape and collect drop cloths, taking care to only remove them when the paint spills and spatters are dry. Clean brushes with soap and water if you’ve been using latex or water-based paint, or with mineral spirits if you’ve used an oil-based paint. Clean roller covers using the curved edge of a 5-in-1 tool to remove the paint under running water.

  • When is it Better to Rent Construction Equipment?

    Whether you’re a homeowner or a contractor, there are probably pieces of equipment you don’t own that you’ll need for various projects. You’ve got some options when it comes to procuring this equipment, because you can either rent it or buy it, but which is a smarter option? The expense of buying these items can be prohibitive, but on the other hand, renting adds up, too. When you’re trying to determine which is a better idea, there are several factors to take into consideration.

    There are certainly many advantages to owning equipment. Owning gives you control over maintenance and upkeep, and the freedom to use it however you choose. Especially if you own a business, purchasing equipment affords you certain tax breaks that you don’t get if you just rent or lease it. So, when is it better to rent?

    • You’re not going to be using it regularly. If you’re going to be using a piece of equipment 65 percent of the time, it’s smart to go ahead and buy it. If it’s something you’ll only use occasionally, though, renting is a more prudent use of your resources.
    • You’re unable to invest in purchasing it right now. If your capital is not sufficient right now to buy exactly what you need, a rental can get the job done for far less money. On the other hand, it’s wise to project your estimated costs over several months or years, to determine which option is actually more cost-effective. If you decide you’d rather own, you can always look into financing or used equipment. However, renting allows you to use the newest equipment with the latest technology, which might be worth the cost of the rental.
    • You’re not sure which brand or equipment is right for you. One of the biggest advantages of renting equipment rather than buying it is that you get to try out different pieces to see which is the best fit. You may think you need equipment with certain bells and whistles, but renting it may give you a better idea of the features that are most important to you.
    • Storing or maintaining the equipment would be a burden. Along with the cost of purchasing a piece of equipment, you should factor in the cost of owning it. When you own something, you’re responsible for the costs of maintaining and operating it, along with insurance, licensing, and other fees. Rental fees, on the other hand, are generally inclusive, so there are no surprise costs to trip you up.

  • Rental Equipment Expands your DIY Possibilities

    If you’re someone who likes to work on your home, you’ve likely run into the problem of not having the right tools for a job. It’s very frustrating to have a plan and not be able to see it through, but on the other hand, tools can be expensive. Sometimes, it’s not feasible to buy what you need, and so the project must be postponed. If you’ve run into this situation before, has it ever occurred to you to rent the tools you need?

    Renting equipment opens a world of possibilities. There are tools for rent for just about any job you want to do, and renting them is a more affordable and convenient option than purchasing. What’s more, when you rent, you get the newest, most technologically advanced version of the tools you’re using, so sometimes even if you have a tool that would work, renting a tool is more efficient. What kind of tools and equipment can you rent?

    • Landscaping tools: If you want a yard that’s the envy of your neighbors, it may be time to hit the rental center. You can go basic, with a lawnmower, blower, and rake, but there’s so much more to find if you really want to get into landscaping. Hedge trimmers, lawn rollers, seed and fertilizer spreaders, stump grinders, and much more can be rented, to help you get the lawn you want.
    • Construction tools: Building on an addition? How about a deck? Need some roofing tools? You’ll find everything you need, from air tools, to drills and saws, to compaction equipment, and more. You can even rent a ladder or a floor jack.
    • Trucks and heavy equipment: If you’re like most people, you probably don’t own a backhoe or a dump truck. Great news! You can rent them! Tractors, trailers, forklifts, and pick-up trucks. If you need it for hauling, dumping, transporting, lifting, or any other task that requires heavy equipment, we’ve got you covered.

  • How to Refresh your Flooring

    Some home improvement projects may seem daunting at first, but there are many things you can do on your own if you have the right equipment. If you’re tired of your flooring, for instance, there are many ways to achieve a new look, and most of them can be DIY projects. All you need is some time, some instructions, and the right tools.

    Why resign yourself to the same tired carpets and flooring you’ve been looking at for years? By the same token, if you’re moving into a new house, there’s no need to live with flooring other people chose. Consider the possibilities! There’s a wealth of flooring out there, just waiting for you to discover it.

    • Lay an engineered wood floor. Do you love the look of hardwoods? They give a warm, cozy feeling to any room, and engineered wood makes it easy to achieve that hardwood look. It’s quicker and easier to install than traditional hardwood, and it’s also extremely durable.
    • Put down some cork. Cold floors are uncomfortable, and one reason people choose carpet is for warmth and cushion underfoot. Cork is another stylish option, resilient, attractive, and easy enough to install that you can finish a room in as little as an afternoon. Cork is available in floating-floor systems that work well over plywood, concrete, or even your existing flooring.
    • Think about different styles for painted floors. Don’t have the budget for a whole new floor? Paint is an inexpensive way to change the entire aesthetic of a room. You can paint over wood floors, concrete floors, and even vinyl, tile, and laminate.
    • Refinish your hardwoods. If you’ve got traditional hardwoods that are showing their age, you can refresh them by refinishing them.
    • Update a concrete floor. You can polish up a concrete floor, paint it in solid colors or patterns, or stain it to give it the look you want. It’s a cost-effective do-over and can result in a truly stunning look.
    • Give your carpets a good cleaning. If the only problem with your carpets is that they’ve seen too much traffic, it may be time to rent a carpet cleaner. Cleaning your carpets yourself is cheaper than hiring someone to do it for you, and it only takes a matter of hours to clean it and let it dry.
    • Rethink linoleum. Linoleum may seem like a throwback, but this durable, eco-friendly flooring is making a comeback. Available in a wide variety of colors and design options, it’s resilient and requires very little maintenance. It’s biodegradable, too, and doesn’t release VOCs. If you’re doing linoleum as a DIY project, snap-together tiles are the easiest way to go.

  • When Summer Storms become a Problem

    In the heat of summer, rainfall can be a welcome change. It breaks up the sweltering heat, cooling us down and refreshing us. Summer rain can also help keep your lawn green and lush, and there’s nothing like a lazy, rainy summer day for the sheer nap potential. On the other hand, sometimes summer storms can be problematic. From high winds to pounding water to rising floodwaters, the problems that a storm can bring can put a damper on your summer. Fortunately, there are rental tools to resolve any issue you might face.

    • When you see that a storm is coming, you can prevent damage to your property by being proactive. Trim trees to keep branches from falling on your home and damaging it, and inspect your roof before and after storms. If you find any damage, make the necessary repairs in a timely manner to keep them from becoming larger and more expensive issues. Keep your gutters clean, and repair any cracks or leaks in your foundation and walls that might let water into your home. You might also consider a sump pump for your basement, to keep excess water from creating problems.
    • If a storm gets the better of you, and there’s damage to your house and landscaping you can rent tools that will help you repair the damage. You may need tools for roof and home repair, or garden equipment to keep hedges and trees under control. If you’ve lost power, a generator can keep you running while you wait for the utility company to repair damage to power lines done by the storm.
    • If the problem you’ve experienced is a flood in your home or basement, there are rental tools for that, too. You’ll need a shop vac for cleanup, a carpet dryer if your carpet has been soaked, and submersible pumps and discharge hoses to remove water from the basement.

    Whether you’re prepping your home to weather the storms, or cleaning up after the damage has been done, A-1 Equipment Rentals has the tools you need.

  • Improving your Home’s Curb Appeal

    If you’re interested in selling your home, your realtor may have mentioned curb appeal. Making your house look appealing to people who are approaching it is a great way to attract a home buyer. However, even if you’re retaining your house, it doesn’t hurt to give the outside of your home a boost. Fortunately, you can give your house a facelift and it doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated.

    You may not be in a position to hire a contractor to repaint the house, replace the garage door, or do some other major work to the façade, but there are several steps you can take on your own, with no contractor required.

    • Clean up your lawn. The first step in making your house look better from the outside is to make sure your yard is neat and tidy. Mow it, pull any weeds, rake any leaves, and get rid of anything that detracts from its appearance, like scattered toys or worn-out lawn furniture. While you’re at it, spend a little time and elbow grease cleaning out your gutters.
    • Install some new greenery. Putting in new plants and flowers is a great way to give your home a fresh look and boost your curb appeal. You don’t have to spend the time, money, and effort required to put in a garden because you can get the same effect with planters or window boxes. Hanging plants are cheerful on a porch, and even one pretty plant arrangement can make a big difference in the look of your home’s exterior.
    • Pressure wash the house. Not only will this make your home look better, but it’s a very satisfying chore. It’s easy to rent and run a power washer and watch the dirt and grime peel off of your siding, walkway, driveway, and porch.
    • Touch up the paint. You don’t need to repaint the whole house, but if there’s any peeling or flaking, now is a good time to fix those minor issues. You might also consider repainting your front door in a bright pop of color, to create an eye-catching entry.
    • Make small repairs. Ripped screens, burned out bulbs, and other little flaws can detract from the overall look of your home. Walk around your house with a critical eye, making note of anything that needs a repair, and then secure the tools you need to do the work, taking an afternoon to make things perfect.
    • Create a clean path. An attractive walkway is a perfect way to lead people to your front door. If you already have a well-defined path, clean it up and consider lining it with lighting or plants. If you don’t have one, it’s not too difficult to make one out of stone or brick.
    • Brighten your fixtures. Your light fixtures and hardware can probably use some sprucing up. If you’re happy with your light fixture, clean any cobwebs or debris from around it to help it shine more brightly. If you’re not happy with it, change it or augment it with some porch string lights. If your front door’s hardware is dull or dated, replace it with something new and bright.

    When you’re ready to give your home a fresh look, it’s easy to find the tools you need to do it yourself and have the project go smoothly. A-1 Equipment Rentals offers the best equipment rental in Redwood City, California, with a great selection of construction equipment as well as an extensive machine and tool inventory.
