Some of the home improvements we dread are the ones we don’t know how to tackle. We’re focusing on a lot of those during this week’s Today’s Homeowner Radio Show.

For instance, you walk into your home and smell a mysterious odor that seems to be coming from the attic. Or you’ve got water that collects in the basement and you’re not sure how to solve that problem for good.

What about ice buildup that’s in the freezer? And while you’re in the kitchen, how about those hard water deposits?

We’ll talk about all these problems, and many more, on this week’s Today’s Homeowner Radio Show.
