Make your bathroom and kitchen fixtures shine to sell your Vancouver, WA real estate
When you prepare to show your Vancouver, WA real estate listing, make sure your plumbing fixtures are in tip-top shape. This is a much less expensive fix than most kitchen and bathroom projects and can make a big difference for buyers looking for a move-in-ready house.
Your faucets and drains should gleam like they're new, and if they aren't ancient and haven't been significantly damaged, cleanup can be easy. If you aren't sure what type of finish you have - chrome, stainless steel, brass or others - start with mild dish soap and water. Durable finishes can withstand a harsher cleaning if this solution doesn't prove effective, but if you're unsure, always test an inconspicuous spot first.
Chrome and metal finish polishes can help you achieve the brand-new look, as can lime removal products found at hardware stores. New faucets are relatively inexpensive if you must replace, and installation is simple with a little plumbing know-how and the right tools.
If your cleaning efforts don't produce a shiny, new-looking faucet and drain, head to your local hardware store for other options. The Home Depot in the Andresen Road shopping area is conveniently located just off Interstate 205, and for a closer-to-town option, check out the Ace Hardware on Northeast Minnehaha Street.
