Home Maintenance Guide

In a home, very few things are maintenance free. There are so many home maintenance and repair items that are important; it can be confusing trying to establish which are the most critical. Preventative maintenance can avoid repairs, extend the life expectancy of many components and in some cases, reduce energy consumption.

Clean the gutters in the spring and fall.
Check for damaged roofing and flashing materials twice a year.
Cut back trees and shrubs from the house walls, roof and air conditioning system as needed.
Clean the tracks on horizontal sliding windows annually, and ensure the drain holes are clear.
Test ground fault circuit interrupters, carbon monoxide detectors and smoke detectors using the test button, monthly.
Service furnace or boiler yearly.
Check the bathtub and shower caulking monthly and improve promptly as needed
Check furnace filters, humidifiers and electronic air cleaners monthly.
Check reversing mechanism on garage door opener monthly.
Check attics for evidence of leaks and condensation and make sure vents are not obstructed, at least twice a year.
Shut off outdoor water faucets in the fall.
