Keeping greenery around your house makes your home look nice, but it's also expensive to maintain, so you may be tempted to let it die to save on water bills. Alternatively, you may be limited by the amount of water you can use if your area is in a heavy drought. You don't have to stop watering altogether, however. New installations and changes to your current setup, even minor ones, should be able to help make a noticeable impact on your monthly bills.
If you're like most people, the smell of smoke is probably already enough to make your lungs, and the rest of your body, cringe after a house fire. The last thing you need right now is to deal with the nasty chemicals that some fire damage repair companies need to use to get your home back to its prior state. The good news is that you don't have to deal with any chemicals, or their residual smell.
