Maintaining a home can be a rather costly endeavour which involves making repairs and renovations so as to ensure that the overall condition of the home is kept at its best level possible. There is as such a lot involved in home maintenance as this needs to be carried out on a regular basis in order to make sure that any issues are identified and managed before they evolve into major problems.

General home maintenance activities which are required to be done from month-to-month can be listed as follows:

  • Roof: Check the roof and around the vents, skylights and chimney for leaks, and repair as necessary.
  • Gutters: Clean the gutters and drain pipes to prevent leaves from clogging them. Be sure that they drain away from the house.
  • Fireplace: Clean the fireplace of ashes. Have chimneys professionally cleaned. Make sure the damper closes tightly, and in summer, leave damper open for improved ventilation is the house is not air-conditioned.
  • Filters: Clean or replace filters once a month or as necessary. Check and clean the dryer vent, air conditioner, stove hood, and room fans.
  • Safety Equipment: Make sure that all smoke detectors and fire extinguishers are in a good working condition. Replace batteries at least twice a year or as necessary.
  • Refrigerator: Make sure the door of the refrigerator seals tightly. Clean the back coils to improve functionality. Stock up! A full fridge uses less energy than an empty one.
  • Taps: Identify any leaks in the kitchen and bathrooms and repair.
  • Windows and Doors: Make sure all windows and doors seal properly and are hence secure against crime and the elements.
