One of the most important things to remember is that you are responsible for certain routine maintenance items to keep you house functioning properly. These tasks tend to be relatively simple. For instance, many types of heating and air conditioning systems contain filters to remove dirt and dust from the air. These filters should be changed on a regular basis.
Cleanliness is a factor that will make your home last longer and work better. Dust and dirt, if allowed to accumulate, can harm the finishes on blinds, cabinets, countertops, floors, sinks, tubs, toilets, walls, tiles and other items. If dirt does accumulate, make sure to clean it with a substance that does not scratch or damage the finishes.
On the outside of your home, make sure that gutters and downspouts do not get clogged with leaves or other objects. The exterior of your house is built to withstand exposure to the elements, but a periodic cleaning will improve the appearance and, in many instances, prolong the life of siding and other exterior products.
When you bought your home, you received a warranty from us. This warranty applies to problems related to the construction of the home, but it does not apply to problems that arise because of failure to perform routine maintenance. Also, some items, such as appliances, may be covered by manufacturers' warranties.
You should fully familiarize yourself with the terms of the warranty policy. You should not wait to read your warranty until a problem arises.
Preventive maintenance is key in keeping your home safe, comfortable, and secure, and in reducing the need for expensive emergency repairs later on.
To keep on top of things, follow a schedule of items to check on a seasonal basis as well as those requiring monthly attention. If you're a reasonably comfortable do-it-yourselfer you should be able to handle most of these tasks yourself. For more complicated jobs you may wish to hire a handyman or a contractor.
