6) Don’t ignore needed home maintenance

Much like maintenance on your heating and air conditioning, regular house maintenance needs attention. Ignoring the maintenance on your home can have severe and costly consequences. Your home, over time, and without maintenance may be susceptible to leaky faucets and toilets, frozen pipes, mold and mildew or safety systems that don’t work when most needed. Common home maintenance you will want to look at regularly are:

• Replacing HVAC filters
• Cleaning garbage disposal
• Inspect fire extinguishers
• Test and replace batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors
• Run water, and flush toilets, in unused areas.
• Test water heaters pressure relief valve
• Deep clean your house
• Vacuum the coils on your refrigerator
• Check exterior drainage
• Clean gutters
• Inspect exterior damage of your house (walls, roof, and windows).

Neglecting your home and putting repairs off until a later date will only make your repairs costlier, bigger and a major inconvenience…always at the wrong time.
