From leaky pipes to overflowing toilets, your house and its inner workings do not care that you’re under a self-quarantine. However, there’s a free home repair consultation service that’ll help you with any home woes you may be experiencing.

Hippo Home Care (formerly known as Sheltr) is a virtual repair service that gives you all the guidance you need to fix a variety of common household issues. The process is pretty simple. To use the service, head to the website, and schedule a free telemaintainence call. During the video call, your pro can take you through the step-by-step process of doing the repair yourself, or they’ll tell you when a real professional needs to come in for aid. You can book said professional directly through the site.

If you’re worried about that weird noise you keep hearing in your bathroom or the drip in your faucet, you may be able to fix it yourself with Hippo Home Care.
