Preventative Home Maintenance Checklist
One of the responsibilities of home ownership that’s easy to forget is regular maintenance. It can keep small problems from growing, prevent bigger problems from becoming catastrophic, and give you a sense of accomplishment to boot. 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty (2-10 HBW) created this Home Maintenance Checklist to help you maintain your home’s systems and appliances and get the most out of your Home Warranty Service Agreement.
A few additional tips
Having a checklist can keep you on track. As you go through this checklist, here are a few other tips to consider.
- Always monitor bigger potential problems. For example, keep an eye on your roof for cracked or curled shingles.
- If you ever do maintenance on anything that plugs in, either unplug it or disconnect/turn off the circuit. The five seconds you save not doing so is never worth the risk of electrocution.
- Resist ignoring problems. It’s much easier to pretend a problem doesn’t exist, but it will almost always come back to haunt you.
- When in doubt, contact a professional. There’s no shame in asking questions, especially when asking could save you a ton of time and trouble in the future.
