Preventing Costly Home Maintenance
We get it. Home maintenance projects aren’t the way you want to spend your weekends or your money. Besides the time involved, some people are simply more blessed with skills — or handy spouses — than others. But just like regular dental visits and car tune-ups, preventive maintenance for your home can save you big bucks and even bigger hassles. Here’s a short checklist of minor home maintenance tasks that will help you prevent costly and major repairs from a home maintenance service provider.
Clean the gutters
There’s a reason why cleaning gutters is often at the top of most home maintenance lists. Ignoring this basic chore can lead to a cascade of issues that could cost hundreds or even thousands in other repairs. Clogged gutters can keep water from draining off your roof, leading to roof damage and leaks, which in turn can cause ceiling and wall damage, and even mold and foundation problems.
Stay on top of tree-trimming needs
Don’t wait for a dangerous storm forecast to call a tree-trimming service. Trees with dead or diseased branches can cause significant risks of property damage or personal injury. Regular pruning and tree trimming will also help keep your beautiful trees healthy and extend longevity. If you have huge trees on your property, it’s best to call a professional tree trimming service for a free inspection by a certified arborist. They’ll let you know if any trees need trimming and will provide a detailed, written estimate if they do.
Keep your sump pump running
With rising sea levels and the increase in extreme rain events, more homes are at risk of flooding, according to scientific research. That means it’s more important than ever to make sure your sump pump is up to performing its job to protect your home from flooding and water damage.
