Your Home Maintenance Checklist: Preventing Major Repairs

Regular maintenance is crucial for preventing small issues from escalating into costly repairs.

Key Indicators of Home Repair Needs

  • Roof Inspection Tips: Look for damaged shingles or buckling, indicative of potential leaks.

  • High Water Bills: Unexplained spikes in water usage can indicate leaks.

  • Electrical Safety: Watch for flickering lights, frequent breaker trips, and warm outlets.

  • Mold Indicators: Pay attention to dampness or unwell feelings, which could suggest mold presence.

  • Foundation Checks: Annually inspect your foundation for cracks or changes.

  • Sump Pump Maintenance: Ensure your sump pump has a backup power source and is functioning properly.

Regular Maintenance Practices

  • Water Leak Checks: Regularly inspect toilets, sinks, and appliances for leaks.

  • Electrical Fire Prevention: Engage a licensed electrician for any concerns.

  • Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors: Test monthly and change batteries biannually.

  • Fire Extinguisher Checks: Maintain at least one in the kitchen and garage, checking them monthly.

Dealing with Mold Concerns

If you suspect mold but can’t locate it, our mold inspection services can help identify and quantify mold spores in your home.

Foundation and Roof Care

Monitor any foundation cracks and seek specialist advice if they worsen. While we don’t recommend climbing onto your roof, signs of wear can often be spotted from the ground.
