Home Maintenance Plan - How do you stack up?


INTERIOR HOME TASKS - Spring

A/C Tune Up
A yearly tune up ensures that your a/c is in tip top shape. This is basically an oil change for your air conditioner.

Clean Carpets/Rugs
Regular carpet cleaning extends the life of your carpets, while making your home look and smell better. Do this more than once a year if you have indoor pets.

Clean Curtains/Blinds/Drapes
Window treatments attract dust and can warehouse allergens if not cleaned regularly.

Dishwasher Tune up
The spray arm, air gap, and strainer should be cleaned regularly to keep dishes coming out clean.

Garage Door Maintenance
By cleaning and lubricating rollers, tracks, and hinges you keep your garage door and opener from breaking down early from exposure to the elements.

Hire a Pest Control Service
Pest control is great for remedy, but even better as prevention. A regular spraying will keep all insects and rodents from making a home in your home.

Inspect Foundation
Foundation problems typically happen slowly, and routine inspections for cracks can head these off before they become big problems.

Inspect/Test for Mold
Mold works fast and can be damaging to respiratory systems. A simple test will let you know if you have mold in your home.

Install/Remove Storm Windows
Windows are expensive and a little protection will save a great deal of expense. It's best to put the storm windows up before the harsh weather season.

Seal Countertops
Granite and other stone counters need to be sealed every 6 months to help repel water, oils, and other penetrating liquids.

Vacuum Coils Behind Fridge
Cleaning the coils regularly helps the refrigerator to run more efficiently, thus extending the life of the unit.

Check Exterior/Interior Light Bulbs
This is a safety issue. It's important to make sure that you have a well-lighted path to your house, down the hall, or into the basement so that you don't fall down or bump into things.


Spring - Monthly Checklist

Check GFIs
GFIs trip when too much load goes through a given circuit. If a GFI is not working, nothing stands in the way of overloading current hurting an appliance or a family member.

Clean Garbage Disposal
Without routine cleaning, your garbage disposal can build up deposits of foul smelling foods. This chore can be completed more often if the odor demands it.

Clean Range Hood
A regular cleaning helps your hood to have a long life and help keep the kitchen smells confined to the kitchen.

Clean Tile Grout

Security System Check
An alarm system that doesn't work gives a false sense of security. A simple test will determine if you need any repairs.

A dirty filter makes your AC unit work harder, thus making it less efficient. Filters are typically less than $20, and this money can be made up in a month of energy savings.
