YOUR HOME IS YOUR SANCTUARY
TOP OF MIND HOME MAINTENANCE ITEMS
Owning a home is something to be proud of. It’s your sanctuary, your place to relax and unwind and be yourself. With this pride of ownership also comes the responsibility of ownership, a focus on both protecting your investment but also ensuring it looks as beautiful and is as comfortable as the day you moved in.
Heating & Air Conditioning
Change your heating and air conditioning filters regularly to ensure they work properly and to remove dirt and dust from the air.
An absolute MUST – test your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors every month. Aside from the house, this could save your life.
Inspect your home each season for signs of leakage, checking for moisture & dampness in areas like the basement and attic.
For those weeks and weekends when you’re on vacation, shut off the water to your washing machine and dishwasher; this could potentially save you a big headache from flooding if a problem with the pipes develop.
Make sure your gutters and downspouts are routinely cleaned out – you don’t want them to get clogged with leaves, branches and other debris. Not only will this help the appearance of your house but will also help prolong the life of your siding and other exterior elements like brick and stone. In addition, check and clean the window wells, drainage swales and catch basins periodically of leaves, branches and in the winter, ice and snow.
