Home Improvement: Ways to Keep Your House Well-Maintained

Sharing is caring!

As you spend days and nights at home, you may not have some of the most basic maintenance measures at the forefront of your mind. That’s a habit that most of us fall into since we only notice that something is wrong after the deed, and after it had already broken down or stopped working. We all lead busy, hectic lives, and it’s understandable. 

That said, it’s good to remember that some things around the house represent dormant problems waiting to expose themselves, or worse, potential safety hazards to you and your loved ones. That’s why it’s a good idea to keep some of these matters at the top of your head, at least periodically. In this article, we share with you some of the most important things to check on regularly.

On the Outside

1. Roof

Periodically (say, with the beginning of every season) inspect your roofing, with attention to details like leaks that can let water in; missing, damaged, or loose shingles; and other potential damages and wear and tear. 

2. Exterior Drainage Pipes

Check for stuck leaves and other debris that may block the water flow. Unclog them immediately to avoid flooding disasters. 

3. Window Screens

Thoroughly examine your window screens for holes and tears, and replace them accordingly to protect your home from nasty bugs, mosquitoes that bite, and anything that can just wander in. 

4. Garage Door

Check your garage door for damages and make sure that everything works. Don’t forget to ensure that the auto-reverse feature is working properly
