Benjamin Franklin once stated, ““An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
This couldn’t be truer when it comes to caring for your home.
Unfortunately, many homeowners don’t pay attention to regular home maintenance until there is a problem, especially if the home is new or recently renovated. Still, every home needs proper routine maintenance checks. While they may seem like a hassle at the time, they will help you to avoid the larger frustrations – and costs – down the road.
Here are three ways you can take preventable action to protect your home:
- Inspect and Thoroughly Clean
- Make it a habit to regularly check and clean areas of your home that are prone to mold, bacteria and other harmful residue build up. This includes the vents, ducts, pipes, drains and water heater.
- Bi-Annual Roof Check
- You should be checking your roof at least twice a year for any areas missing material or signs of leaks such as water buildup and damage. During storm season, you may want to check it more frequently.
- Appliance Professionals
- Make the investment to hire skilled professionals for yearly maintenance of your major appliances such as your refrigerator, air conditioner and water heater, and also your pool.
Owning a home is a major responsibility that requires routine checkups and maintenance to keep it in its best shape for you and your family to live comfortably for many years to come.
