It takes either a writer or a mother to appreciate the peace and quiet of a house.
Fortunately, I’m both. I can understand moms and dads doing some cleaning around the house while their kids are asleep. We want the work to be done quickly and without disturbing our kids while their asleep.
Also, we try our best to schedule cleaning hours at a time when it’s least disturbing to the elderly in our house or our neighbors.
One lousy vacuum cleaner with nagging sounds can spoil our plans of a quiet evening for our kids and the neighbors. Sure, we do everything in our powers to hush the sound. Sometimes, that costs us a lot of money.
But what if I told you an easy way around the problem?
Choose best quiet vacuum cleaners to begin with. If you’re lacking the motivation to do some research, I’ve got just the list for you. I’ve also explained my reasons for choosing the brands and models on the list. Let’s get to it.Continue reading

If you’ve been to places with unpleasant weather conditions like I have, you KNOW what challenges come with the weather. There can be extreme heat, relentless raining on most days (Cue: London), and most importantly: Sudden flooding of the house due to poor drainage systems.
Believe me, a soaked and flooded basement is just the start of your problems. If the water isn’t moved, it can damage the flooring of your house.
Leave it for too long and the furniture will get damaged as well. Poor drainage, damage to your water discharge, and water blockade can turn your house into an island (pun intended).
The easiest way to eradicate the problem is to dig a sump pit in the basement and install a pump that discharges the water away from your house at a safe distance. These pumps are known as “Sump Pumps.” These pumps are handy as none of us want to spend the weekend mopping up a pool of water.
I’ll be discussing the topic in this article. I’ll be helping you guys with a list of some of the quietest sump pumps around. After all, no one likes too much noise to disturb the harmony of their houses while removing a water poodle down at the basement.
While I’m at it, I’ll be throwing in a buying guide in the article as well. This is to help you find your own machine if you’re not satisfied with my choices. But I bet you will be.Continue reading

When someone sees a flying object these days, nine out of ten times it’s a drone.
These things might look like toys but they do some serious business. Drones do surveillance work, take pictures, record videos, and carry objects. I must tell you, these things are the best at what they do.
If there’s one aspect that makers found hard to manage, it’s the sound. If one of these devices does a near fly-by, people would know.
Thankfully, technology is at a point where manufacturers can produce drones with thick bodies. These things mask the materials and their vibrations while running.
As a result, drones of this age are silent unlike before.
But a different kind of problem lingers on. Users are still finding it tough to find the quietest drones on the market thanks to so many brands and models around. There are not enough resources describing the benefits of these tools and accurate noise test results.
All of it changes today with this article of mine. Here I discuss the reasons for having a quiet drone around. I put out a buying guide discussing the blueprints of finding the perfect machine. I’ve thrown in in-depth reviews of some of the best silent drones in business too.Continue reading
It is no doubt that computers are used nearly everywhere nowadays. And it goes without saying that a keyboard must accompany a computer for it to function fully.
Although most computers come with a standard keyboard, most of these are not necessarily the best. Keyboards can be quite noisy making it difficult for you to work in the company of others.
A few years ago, I was living with a couple of friends while trying to cut costs. I am a night bird and this meant that I was almost always using my computer while everyone else was asleep. While this did not pose a problem, my keyboard at the time was quite loud. This meant that my friends, who were all light sleepers, could hardly sleep unless I was done using the computer.
I did not even know silent or quiet keyboards existed until one of them mentioned it. Of course, I still wanted to use the computer at night but not at the expense of their sleep. So I decided to give it a try.Continue reading
The kettle we boil water with is one of the very first appliances we use once we wake up. While it may not seem that important, for me, having a good kettle can make all the difference to my morning routine.
I like having a quiet and calm environment in my house especially in the mornings. Therefore, it is important to me that my kettle gives a fast and quiet boil for my morning cup of tea – which is my favorite part of the day!

Almost every household has a microwave. It has got to be one of the most convenient inventions in the modern-day world. Most people simply cannot live without it in their kitchens. You need it for a wide variety of functions.
These functions include; heating up food, baking small cakes, cooking light dishes, defrosting meat, boiling water, etc. I cannot possibly exhaust the uses of a microwave.
Now, an over the range microwave oven is simply a microwave that comes with a range hood. It is a 2-in-1 unit that is designed for installation over your countertop and therefore, included in the packaging is some mounting hardware for a quick and easy installation.
