Home Maintenance Tips & Reminders

Home Maintenance is an ongoing effort for sure....here is a list of the common task you may want to consider throughout the year.  

  • Get your HVAC unit serviced and replace filters as needed. 
  • Check your hot water heater for leaks.
  • Clean your garbage disposal by grinding ice cubes, then flushing with hot water and baking soda.
  • Check fireplaces and dryer vents for clogs.
  • Have your air vents cleaned.
  • Look under sinks for potential leaks.
  • Touch up paint throughout.
  • Clean gutters of back ups and debris
  • Have there been hail storms - get your roof inspected
  • Replace the batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Install a smoke detector on every floor of your home.
  • Refinish decks and seal.
  • Powerwash Siding & Windows.
  • Do you have a septic, keep up with the maintenance reports and get it pumped as needed.
  • Carpet cleaning and seal your grout and granite as needed.
  • Update landscaping and prune trees and shrubs to prevent pests.
  • Schedule your next pest control appointment.
  • Check for frayed cords around the house - those can be fire hazards.
  • Ensure your sprinkler system is working correctly and doesn't have any leaks.
  • Ask your pool tech about yearly maintenance suggestions.
  • Shower & Bath caulking.
  • Do you need a water & gas valve shut off reminder?
  • Pull out appliances and clean behind/under.  

Also, don't underestimate the power of a good deep clean to handle the stove, refrigerator, cob webs, ceiling fans, blinds, etc.
