Keeping your home well-maintained not only makes it look great, but can prevent costly repairs down the road. The professionals at Realty Repair Co have put together 5 easy home maintenance tips to help homeowners keep their living spaces in top shape.
A clean and organized home is more inviting and can also make your life easier. Set aside time each week to do a deep clean of your home. Go room by room and get rid of clutter. Donating or throwing out unneeded items helps reduce mess. Regular cleaning between deep cleans keeps your home tidy.
It's important to periodically check for leaks and other water damage around your home. Look for discolored ceilings or walls, peeling paint or wallpaper, musty smells or moisture on surfaces. Fixing leaks quickly prevents further damage. Inspect sealants around sinks, tubs, showers, and windows. Repair or replace as needed.
Replacing your heating, ventilation and air conditioning system filters every 3 months improves air quality and keeps your HVAC system working efficiently. Mark your calendar with reminders.
Look for cracked or missing grout around tiles in bathrooms, kitchens and other areas. Check for gaps around sinks, tubs, showers and backsplashes. Re-grouting and caulking prevents moisture damage and mildew growth.
Carpets trap dust, dirt, pet dander and other allergens even when vacuumed regularly. Deep clean carpets and rugs at least once a year using steam cleaning or carpet shampooing. This improves air quality and extends carpet life.
