I discovered this book after seeing a very positive review in the Orlando Sentinel. Think of the things that can go wrong with your home (flood, fire, sewer problems, insects, etc.) Knowing what to do can save you a lot of grief.

Use the tips in this book to prevent some of these problems and if necessary, to clean up or repair after they happen. There's advice for when you have to hire a professional and also it clues you in on understanding your homeowner's insurance and warranties.

Should be handy to have around, just in case!
