Let’s be honest. Between all the shopping, hosting, and traveling during the busy holiday season, it's easy to procrastinate on boring home maintenance chores. We totally understand why upkeep around the house can go ignored—that’s why we’ve got you covered. Our Fix-It Plan, a comprehensive tier system, automatically sets up routine maintenance visits at your convenience to help you manage home repairs throughout the year. With winter setting in, it’s especially important to maintain and protect your home! We’ve included a list of five home chores included in our plan so that your holiday season goes off without a hitch.
Test smoke and carbon monoxide detectors
It’s vital to ensure that your alert systems are functioning properly. We recommend that your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are tested every season—this article explains why this task is especially necessary during winter. With your family spending more time indoors, it’s important that your home stays safe and protected.
Check & repair all weather stripping
Weatherstripping prevents water from entering your home and also seals in heat.
Unfortunately, it can suffer lots of wear and tear throughout the year, which can result in cracks and tears that impair its insulating capabilities. Have the professionals in home repair inspect it to ensure your home is protected before harsh winter weather sets in.
Inspect all water filtration system
Regularly inspecting your water filtration system will keep it working properly. Our craftsmen will survey the system throughout your entire home and perform preventative maintenance to ultimately save you money, time, and energy in the long run.
Remove showerheads and clean sediment
It may have been a while since you’ve last cleaned your showerhead. This chore typically goes overlooked, but forgetting about it can lead to a buildup of grime and mildew that will impair the stream of water.
Winterize all exterior faucets and pipes
Winter weather can wreak havoc on your home’s exterior faucets and pipes. If they are not adequately prepared to handle cold temperatures, they can freeze and burst, resulting in costly damage. A professional can ensure your faucets and pipes are winterized for the upcoming season.For any home improvement or maintenance project you may have, contact the professionals in home repair, Handyman Pro.
