Having a consistent, regular schedule of preventative home maintenance will ensure that your house is in great condition and can keep you from dealing with problems later on. Regular preventative home maintenance is also easier – and less expensive – than waiting until something breaks and then rushing to get it fixed. To eliminate service delays, preserve your home’s value, and keep your family comfortable throughout the seasons, we recommend the following:
- Winter – Check irrigation systems, as well as the gutters and lower roof for ice leaf blocks.
- Spring – Clean the gutters, window screens, and replace air conditioner filters.
- Summer – Bug-proof your home, have your air conditioner serviced, and clean and dust your ceiling fans.
- Fall – HVAC inspection, remove debris from water features, aerate your lawn and rake the leaves, check the fireplace for signs of damage or hazard.
