Tips For Maintaining Your New Home

Regular maintenance schedule: Yard work, window washing, dusting and vacuuming…make a list of weekly chores and stick to it!

Inspect the exterior annually: If for some reason you notice a cracked window or a broken door, you can have a chance to fix it before it gets worse.

Protect entryways: Prevent dirt and mud from being tracked inside. If you don’t have a mudroom, place welcome mats in front of your door and mats for shoes inside.

Change your filters: HVAC & refrigerator filters should be changed on a regular basis. Mark a day on your calendar every couple of months for your filter change.

Train pets: Providing toys and entertainment for your pets helps to ensure that boredom does not set in, resulting in damage to your home. Clean up any accidents that happen right away.

Protect against fire hazards: Replace smoke and carbon monoxide detector batteries when you change your clocks forward or back.
