    Home Maintenance Calendar

    Regular maintenance is the key - Home maintenance is easy to postpone because there are so many things that are in need of your attention are out of sight. They only enter your mind when they begin to sputter, bang and demand large amounts of money.

    Inspecting and maintaining your home on a regular basis and keeping to good practices are the best ways to protect your investment in your home. You can take care of a few tasks at a time or several all at once - it is important to get into the habit of doing them. Establish a routine for yourself and you will find the work is easy to accomplish and not time consuming. A regular schedule of seasonal maintenance can put a stop to the most common — and costly — problems, before they occur. Use a camera to take pictures of anything you might want to share with an expert for advice or to monitor or remind you of a situation later. This also helps you develop a budget for home maintenance. Protect your investment and keep your home a safe and healthy place to live!!

    If you do not feel comfortable performing some of the home maintenance tasks, or have the necessary equipment, for example a ladder, you may want to consider hiring a qualified handy person to help you.
