Do you own your home? Becoming a homeowner after renting is an adjustment. While it is great to have a place that is yours and you don’t have to answer to anyone, when problems or maintenance issues arise, such as faucet repair in Minneapolis, it is your responsibility to handle them. You can’t call the landlord to take care of it.
Home maintenance is a big job. It is helpful if you have a yearly calendar that you can schedule all the various tasks that will need to be accomplished. If the heating and cooling system needs servicing once a year, putting it on your calendar will help remind you to call and make an appointment with the technician. The same goes for your water heater. It’s wise to call your local Roto-Rooter early and get the time and day you want nailed down. Refer to the calendar often to see what things will be coming up in the next month to three months. That way you will always be able to get an appointment at the proper time.
If you put sharpening the lawn mower blade and servicing the mower down for the month before mowing starts, then it will be ready to go when the time comes. If you need to treat the concrete with sealer on your day off, then look on the calendar and schedule it when you aren’t planning to be out of town or coaching your son’s little league team. One helpful tip is to have the occasions such as birthdays or holidays in one color, family events (like games or piano recitals) in another color, and maintenance jobs in a third color. If you prefer, you can have the calendar on your phone where it is easy to refer to. However, with a family, it is nice to have one that hangs on the wall in the kitchen where everyone can see it.
