About Safe and Sound: A Renter-Friendly Guide to Home Repair:
For too many people, the simple act of contacting a plumber or repair person can feel like a game of chance. As a transwoman and a professional maintenance technician, Mercury Stardust has discovered (the hard way) that we live in a world with much to fear. If you've ever felt panicked about opening your home to strangers in order to fix a maintenance issue, this book is for you. Renting a home can be a complex process—from finding a safe and affordable space, to hiring help for moving in and out, and of course, managing any repairs that come up during your stay. You deserve to feel empowered to take matters into your own hands—and it’s not as hard as you might think. In this book, Mercury will show you how to tackle the projects that need improvement in your home—from how to properly fix a clog in your bathroom sink and safely hang things on your walls to patching small and medium drywall holes. Safe and Sound includes:
- Guidance for over 50 simple home maintenance projects, such as replacing your showerhead and troubleshooting a faulty garbage disposal.
- Chapters covering basic and handy repairs for your plumbing, electrical, carpentry, and safety needs.
- Advice tailored to renters to minimize permanent changes.
- Helpful illustrations and QR code links to videos to help you on your journey.
Remember—a little bit of knowledge can go a long way toward making you feel more safe and in control of your own life.
