Preventive home maintenance will not only keep you safer and more comfortable, it will keep up your homes value AND allow you to stay in it as long as you can.  Here are a few home maintenance suggestions that can help you do that. 

Monthly preventive home maintenance: Test your smoke detectors, test and reset ground fault circuit interrupters, check the gauge on your fire extinguisher.

Twice a year preventive home maintenance: Check all faucets and under sinks for leaks, inspect caulking around sinks, tubs and showers, clean the coils on your fridge and drain a few gallons of water from your water heater to prevent sediment buildup.

Preventive home maintenance can  prevent disaster

Once a year preventive home maintenance:  Make sure your toilets are securely anchored and not leaking.  Inspect for termites, ants and other pests, including rodents.  Have a professional licensed roofer inspect gutters, downspouts, roofing and flashing.  Also get professional inspection of the heating/cooling system.  Hire a pro to check your chimney and the flues of wood burning fireplaces and stoves and clean them if necessary.  Make sure all interior and exterior handrails are secure.
