SELLING A HOME IS A PAINSTAKING AND, AT TIMES, DIFFICULT PROCESS. SO EXPERTS SAY DON'T MAKE IT HARDER ON YOURSELF BY GETTING IN YOUR OWN WAY.

THE REAL ESTATE WEBSITE TRULIA PUT TOGETHER THESE TIPS ON HOW TO MAKE YOUR HOME SALE EASIER AND MORE EFFICIENT.

DON'T SELL IT YOURSELF. EXPERTS SAY TO HIRE A PROFESSIONAL TO SELL YOUR HOME. THOSE WHO DO SELL FASTER AND FOR MORE.

OVERPRICING OR UNDERPRICING YOUR HOME. DO YOUR RESEARCH, KNOW THE MARKET, AND KNOW WHAT SIMILAR HOUSES HAVE SOLD FOR AROUND YOU TO DETERMINE YOUR ASKING PRICE.

OVERLOOKING REPAIRS. DO THE FIXING UP THAT IS NECESSARY BEFORE YOU PUT YOUR HOUSE ON THE MARKET. IT WILL COST YOU LESS IN THE END TO FIX THEM AHEAD OF TIME.

EITHER BEING TOO CLUTTERED OR EMPTY. EXPERTS SAY CLUTTER IS ONE OF THE LEAST EXPENSIVE IMPROVEMENTS YOU CAN MAKE TO YOUR HOME. SHOW THE SPACIOUSNESS BY CLEANING OUT THE CLOSETS AND CLEARING THE COUNTERS.

BUT EXPERTS ALSO SAY DON'T SELL YOU HOUSE EMPTY. HAVE IT PROFESSIONALLY STAGED INSTEAD, IF YOU CAN'T KEEP YOUR FURNITURE IN THERE.

THESE EXPERTS SAY THESE ARE SOME OF THE MOST COMMON AND MOST AVOIDABLE MISTAKES AND IN THIS CASE IT USUALLY PAYS TO DO EVERYTHING RIGHT. MANY OF THE TIPS TRANSLATE INTO A MUCH HIGHER BOTTOM LINE FOR YOU WHEN YOU SELL.

FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

MOSTLY SUNNY WITH MORE HEAT

It will be another mostly sunny day in Southwest Florida, but there are a few subtle changes occurring. Afternoon highs will reach into the lower 90s. The dew point is creeping up, so that means you'll likely notice it being a little bit more humid today. Winds will be from the southeast with gusts near 20 mph. Then the afternoon sea breeze will arrive, keeping beaches slightly cooler that inland areas.

Tomorrow, the cloud cover and the humidity will both increase a bit and highs will still be in the lower 90s.

Mother's Day is this weekend and the weather still looks pretty good. It will be hot and humid with highs in the upper 80s. There will also be more clouds ins our skies. There is a slight chance for an inland shower both days, but the majority of the area will stay dry.

We'll be hot and humid going into next week with the possibility of a stray shower on Monday. By Tuesday and Wednesday, we'll bring in a better chances for showers and storms. Return to index of stories...

HOSPITAL GERMS-PKG


HOSPITAL BEDS ARE WHERE PATIENTS SPEND THE BULK OF THEIR TIME DURING A HOSPITAL STAY.

FROM THE BUTTONS TO THE HANDRAILS, THE NEARBY PHONE, THE CORDS. AND THE MATTRESS.

THIS IS THE MOST TIME-CONSUMING PART OF THE CLEANING PROCESS FOR BARBARA WALKER.

EVERY SURFACE, NOOK AND CRANNY IS SANITIZED. BUT INFECTION PREVENTIONIST BRIDGET BOUDREAUX SAYS EVEN THAT WON'T BE ENOUGH TO KILL *EVERY GERM IN ANY HOSPITAL SETTING.

"There's no way to kill every germ. There are things that live in our environment that we are exposed to, it's about how adequate the patient's immune system is to fight off those things."

A WEAK IMMUNE SYSTEM AND A COMMON, BUT DANGEROUS FUNGUS IS WHAT A CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION REPORT STATES MADE FIVE SICK KIDS EVEN SICKER AT CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL IN NEW ORLEANS.

THE CULPRIT: FUNGUS TRANSFERRED TO PATIENTS THROUGH CONTAMINATED LINENS.

"That particular fungus is actually transmitted in air and dust, so it could be something that we're all exposed to all the time and it has to do with our immunity."

MOST HOSPITALS USE LAUNDRY COMPANIES TO CLEAN THEIR LINENS.

"This is where everything comes into the facility in these buckets where the linen is all covered."

"all of the laundry is cleaned at an outside facility and washed between 160 and 170 degrees. then it's put into protective plastic wrapping to prevent contamination. once it's here, it's loaded into these clean bins to be distributed to other parts of the hospital."

'We then put it into our carts here and everything stays covered, just as we transport anything from this room to the floors. everything stays covered in those covered containers."

FROM THE LINEN CLOSET, HOUSEKEEPERS LIKE WALKER HAVE ANOTHER SET OF STANDARDS TO FOLLOW.

THE LINENS CANNOT TOUCH THE STAFF'S SKIN OR CLOTHING. AND THE REMOVAL AFTER A STAY IS ALSO METICULOUS.

A BED IS ONLY READY WHEN EVERY STERILE STEP HAS BEEN COMPLETED. Return to index of stories...

TO PUT IT IN PERSPECTIVE- MORE AMERICANS HAVE TATTOOS THAN NATURAL BLONDE HAIR.

MOSTLY SUNNY WITH MORE HEAT

It will be another mostly sunny day in Southwest Florida, but there are a few subtle changes occurring. Afternoon highs will reach into the lower 90s. The dew point is creeping up, so that means you'll likely notice it being a little bit more humid today. Winds will be from the southeast with gusts near 20 mph. Then the afternoon sea breeze will arrive, keeping beaches slightly cooler that inland areas.

Tomorrow, the cloud cover and the humidity will both increase a bit and highs will still be in the lower 90s.

Mother's Day is this weekend and the weather still looks pretty good. It will be hot and humid with highs in the upper 80s. There will also be more clouds ins our skies. There is a slight chance for an inland shower both days, but the majority of the area will stay dry.

We'll be hot and humid going into next week with the possibility of a stray shower on Monday. By Tuesday and Wednesday, we'll bring in a better chances for showers and storms. Return to index of stories...
