Maintenance Tips For Your Home

Keeping your home maintained can be a lot of work. We have some tips for you if you are someone who is constantly making repairs around the house, or worrying about whether your home is ready for the winter. 

Restore Power To Any Dead Outlets

Every year check all of the outlets in your home to make sure they work. When checking if you find that any of your power sources are dead, then the best thing to do is to call an electrician to get them fixed. 

Remove Evidence Of Water Damage

If you have experienced any water damage in your home, you have probably already fixed it, but have you repaired the evidence? If there is anything within your home that looks like it may raise questions, then you want to get this fixed ASAP. When it comes to water damage, make sure that you have addressed the source of water damage but also the stains that are left behind. 

Clear Your Drains

Sort out any slow drains in your home before they become clogged. You can snake the drain with a wire hanger or buy a drain declogger to help clear your drains. 

Clean The Gutters

Cleaning the gutters tends to be one of the jobs that are at the top of most people’s lists. If you ignore this task, this can go on to lead to a range of issues. If your gutters are clogged, this can stop water from draining off your roof, which can lead to roof damage and leaks, it can lead to ceiling and wall damage, and mould and foundation problems. This job is one of the more tedious jobs however, it is an important job. To clear your gutters, get your ladder and climb up to your gutters and clear any leaves and debris that is up there. This is one job that you will not regret doing. 

Declutter and Organise Your Garage

This is a big job but it will be worth it once it is all done. People are more likely to put an offer in on a house when there is a usable garage. Begin by clearing out your garage and decide what to keep and what to get rid of. If there are any items that you no longer need to keep in the house but you still want to keep some of these items, you can rent out a storage unit.
