Stay On Top Of Home Maintenance Tasks

Image title

Your home requires ongoing maintenance to stay in tiptop shape. If you neglect routine tasks, you risk overlooking potential issues that could lead to expensive repairs down the road. Stay on top of preventive maintenance tasks with routine, seasonal checklists remembering these tips.

Winter -- To prevent pipes from bursting, drain and insulate exposed outdoor pipes and leave the water dripping inside on cold nights. Check your boiler's water level every so often to make sure it doesn't get too low.

Spring -- Winter can leave a layer of grit on your home's exterior. Prepare for spring by cleaning windows, doors and siding preferably with a power washer. While the weather is mild, have your HVAC systems serviced by a professional to keep them running at optimal efficiency.

Summer -- Inspect your sprinkler system for clogs or malfunctioning heads. Keep an eye out for damaged pipes or pooling water to avoid a larger issue. Review or establish a family emergency plan be sure to have a stocked disaster supply kit.

Fall -- Get ahead of winter by having your chimney professionally inspected and cleaned. Make sure your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are functioning properly and have fresh batteries. Keep your gutters clear of leaves and debris to protect your roof and foundation.

Keeping up with these maintenance tasks not only helps to preserve the value of your home, but, in doing so, you'll be avoiding potential headaches later on. You'll be glad you did!
