Key Maintenance Plan - Tip #8
If It’s Not Broke, Don’t Fix It – Might Not Be the Best Strategy for Your Home
A homeowner needs to prepare for the heat in the Summer and the cold in the winter by having their HVAC serviced. You don’t want to be the house without air conditioning on the hottest day, or heat on the coldest day because you didn’t remember to have this done. Even more disturbing are the stories of people coming home from vacation to find their pipes have frozen and burst because the heat went out!
How many people know that clogged dryer vents are one of the top causes of house fires in the US? Or… Have you ever asked yourself, “Why is it taking so long to dry this load of laundry?” You guessed it, your dryer vent is clogged! A dryer vent should be checked and cleaned annually to prevent these issues.
Have you ever wondered why there are icicles hanging from your roof, or there is a terrible musty odor in your home? Most likely, this is caused by not having your gutters cleaned and maintained at-least once a year. Clogged gutters are the number one cause of water damage in a home and can lead to mold growth.
Did you know that 60% of garage doors were found to be in disrepair or working improperly when tested by the Consumer Product and Safety Commission? The fact is, 71% of people use their garage door as the main entrance to their home and it can exert deadly force when closing! Roughly 30,000 people per year report injuries due to garage door related incidents!
Home plumbing system maintenance is so often overlooked and undervalued. A home can have leaks going on for days, weeks, months etc. without the owner even knowing! Hot water heaters build up sediment and corrode if not drained annually, which leads to eventual failure without warning. The likelihood of this happening in a home that has their plumbing system properly maintained once a year is significantly diminished.
