Five Tips To Maintain Your Home

Advanced Home Inspections   |  

Your house is one of your most prized possessions and ensuring its upkeep is often a vital part of preserving its value and charm. However, often, homeowners skip minor but vital aspects due to negligence or lack of awareness, which can put you and your loved ones at risk.

At Advanced Home Inspections, we want to protect you and your family for years to come by ensuring you do not miss out on certain essential steps. To help you protect you and your loved ones, we have compiled a list of five tips to maintain your home.

Tip #1: Create a checklist. 
To ensure everything in your house is in the best condition, from top to bottom, make a list of tasks you want to complete and divide them into separate weekends. This way you won’t get overwhelmed with too many chores!

Tip #2: Choose the right day.
If you want to schedule a home inspection or if there are outdoor areas that you want to clean and tick off your to-do list, keep the weather conditions in mind. Select a day that is clear and sunny to avoid re-scheduling an inspection. During the inspection, ensure that the ladder is level or properly secured. Also, it’s advisable to carry a shovel, rake, clippers, and a caulking/caulk gun.

Tip #3: Hire a professional.
If you do not have the time to organize and clean your home regularly, an experienced house cleaner or cleaning service will be an ideal long-term solution. They will get the job done quickly and in the right way.

Tip #4: Ask for help.
If there is any repair or maintenance work that you’re unfamiliar with, be sure to consult a qualified contractor. While there are contractors who specialize in different fields, find one that has enough experience to handle your project type.   

Tip #5: Maintain a routine
The goal is to prevent future issues with your house. By being proactive and investing in routine home care, you will not only provide a cleaner environment for you and your family but also save a ton of time and money in the long run.
