Most people avoid thinking about home maintenance when buying a home. But don’t let yourself forget about the time and labor that home ownership also requires. Just like regular oil changes for your car keep your engine happy and healthy, keeping up with regular home maintenance tasks will keep you from future headaches and wasted money. Regular home maintenance is required to keep your home in tip-top shape. It can be intimidating to think about these various tasks, especially if you’re a new homeowner. Most tasks are easy enough for you to handle, but any large tasks that involve electricity or plumbing should be left to a professional, licensed general contractor.
We made this list of the most common home repairs and maintenance you can easily do yourself. There’s definitely a lot to do so you might want to create a home maintenance calendar for yourself. Whether online or on paper, you can jot down small, regular tasks for each weekend and not be too overwhelmed. We’ve listed tasks that need to be done monthly, quarterly, and biannually. Regular home maintenance will help you keep your home in tip top shape. You can use this article as a home maintenance checklist, so you can stay on top of all the tasks you can easily handle yourself. Our blog is full of several articles like this one that can help you with home maintenance, interior design, bathroom remodeling, kitchen remodeling, and even home additions.
