Keeping a swimming pool clean isn't a full-time job if done correctly and regularly. Maintenance is most often crucial in the summer months since that is when swimming pools find the most use. After making the financial investment in a swimming pool, there is a need to make sure that it remains in perfect condition all year round. A neglected swimming pool is a much more severe issue than a dirty pool.

Store pool chemicals safely.

The pool water contains many chemicals that are present in a balanced quantity and level. A clean pool is one that is chemically balanced. As a rule, do not store swimming pool chemicals anywhere that has direct sunlight. Chlorine solution and acidic solutions should be kept far apart in a cool and dry storage space to prevent fire outbreaks and other chemical reactions. 

Pool vacuums are important.

One of the toughest tasks of any pool owner is the manual cleaning and skimming of debris from the pool. There are cheap, automatic pool vacuums that are programmed to suck away debris and dirt from the bottom of a swimming pool. Vacuuming ensures that significantly reduces the rate of algae growth, and the pool stays cleaner for longer. A pool vacuum also should not be a reason not to scrub the walls of the pool regularly to prevent the buildup of algae and other living organisms.

Maintain the pool chemical balance.

Chemical balances prevent a swimming pool from becoming a breeding ground for germs and algae which could cause health issues to those who use it. A balanced pool should maintain a pH level in a range between 7.2 and 7.8. There are many simple testing kits help to carry out a quick check of pool pH, so you know when to add chlorine and other chemicals to balance it.

Schedule regular filter cleaning and maintenance.

Pool filters are critical in keeping your swimming pool in a clean condition. They are not the most obvious of pool parts, but they are essential. Have a regular schedule for cleaning and inspecting swimming pool filters. Most swimming pools use three different types of filters, and each needs cleaning in a certain way. Be sure to check everything regularly to ensure that it is not blocked or damaged which could lead to problems with your pool.

Don't neglect your pool care especially in the summer months. For a comprehensive pool cleaning and maintenance, call a local pool cleaning service to help you out.

If you're preparing to buy or sell a home, why should you be forced to work with a real estate agent who won't listen to your concerns and questions? Instead, hire a real estate agent who is a great listener, and you can receive consistent support throughout the homebuying or home selling journey.

There are many signs that a real estate agent is an outstanding listener, such as:

1. Your real estate agent responds to your concerns and questions as quickly as possible.

Let's face it – buying or selling a house can be stressful. Fortunately, a real estate agent who is an active listener will do what it takes to help clients alleviate stress time and time again.

An active listener will learn what it's like to walk in another person's shoes. Meanwhile, a real estate agent who actively listens to a homebuyer or home seller will be ready to respond to urgent client requests without delay.

Furthermore, it is important to employ a real estate agent who boasts comprehensive homebuying or home selling experience. With this housing market professional at your disposal, you can get expert responses to your concerns and questions. Then, you'll be better equipped than ever before to make informed homebuying or home selling decisions.

2. Your real estate agent follows up with you regularly.

A real estate agent who understands the value of active listening will follow up with clients regularly. By doing so, this housing market professional can limit the risk of miscommunication and mistakes along the homebuying or home selling process.

In addition, a real estate agent who provides constant updates will take the guesswork out of buying or selling a home. He or she will make it simple for you to streamline the homebuying or home selling process. And as such, this real estate agent will reduce the chance that you'll encounter potential homebuying or home selling roadblocks that otherwise could prevent you from achieving your desired results.

3. Your real estate agent asks questions and requests feedback.

When it comes to choosing a real estate agent, it is vital to select one who asks questions and requests feedback. In fact, this housing market professional may prove to be an amazing listener who will go above and beyond the call of duty to support you in any way possible.

Ultimately, a real estate agent who asks questions wants to learn about a client's homebuying or home selling needs. He or she wants clients to succeed and will dedicate the necessary time and resources to help each client buy or sell a home.

On the other hand, a real estate agent who requests feedback is always searching for ways to improve, and this commitment to excellence usually separates an ordinary real estate agent from an exceptional one.

Kick off the homebuying or home selling process by hiring a real estate agent who knows how to listen to his or her clients. That way, you can increase the likelihood of a successful homebuying or home selling journey.

Not many people would readily consider the bathroom as the prime spot for flower decoration but propping a small vase of flowers on your vanity is a natural yet high-impact way to add a layer of color and a touch of luxury to your bathroom.

A small vase of colorful can also bring freshness to the most unremarkable, mundane moments. Times like when you're getting ready for the long day ahead. Or if you're having guests over soon, featuring floral arrangements in your bath is a lovely way to surprise them as well: It shows your attention to detail and will make them feel extra welcome. Here's a guide to perfecting your bathroom florals.

Bathrooms can be tiny compared to other rooms in your house, but having less open area to place substantial vases. You'll need to become selective with how you display your colorful blooms. If you're short on counter space, you can opt for tiny bud vases. Or, use single blossoms or sprigs of greenery. You can put one of these just beside the hand basin or line a few up on the windowsill to make a feature.

If you have extra room, try putting a larger vase onto a chic stool in a dark corner of the bathroom and make a floral statement.

Once you're determined to add blooms to your bathroom, you need to be mindful of which flowers you choose. Not every blossom handles the humidity that comes with this space well.

Here are some ideas to try: Flowers like orchids work well. Or consider Australian natives such as eucalyptus and banksias that are bathroom-happy botanicals with long shelf-life.

Need some quick tips on getting your bathroom bloom arrangement to be just perfect?

  • Make sure your arrangements are compact, so there’s less chance of the flowers getting knocked over.
  • Make sure to keep your blossoms away from direct sunlight or places that will radiate heat, such as the bath – particularly if you're using delicate flowers.
  • Make sure you use heated light at a minimum for longer-lasting flowers.
  • Change the water regularly.Ready to take your botanical bathroom experience to the next level?
  • Get some eucalyptus from the shops – or your backyard if you can.
  • Run some string or twine around a few stems.
  • Fix it up in a bunch in the shower.
  • Grind the leaves a little so while you shower a steamy eucalyptus experience greets you every day.

When prepping your home for viewing, little touches such as a fresh sprig of blooms in your bathroom leave a favorable impression with potential homebuyers.
