New Homeowner? Put Your Plumber on Speed Dial

New Homeowner? Put Your Plumber on Speed Dial

Have you recently purchased you own home? If you have, then this is an exciting time. After renting and having to follow the rules of the landlord, it is exhilarating to have a place where you can hang pictures wherever you want, paint in colors other than white, and play your music at whatever volume you wish. However, there is also the responsibility of handling any maintenance or repair issues by yourself. No longer can you rely on the building’s maintenance man. You are it! It may be helpful for you in your new responsible role to have the phone number of your Chicago plumber.

Owning your own home is part of the American Dream, and most people look forward to the day that they get this privilege. To help you stay on top of all the things that need to be done around your home, create a maintenance calendar. This way, everything that needs to be done to keep your home in great condition is given a specific time slot. If you spread these jobs out evenly throughout the year, they won’t seem so overwhelming.

As you are putting your maintenance calendar together, make sure that you coordinate it with your family and work calendars. This way you can avoid scheduling conflicts. Whether it is stored in your smart phone or hanging on your fridge, make sure you refer to it often so you can stay on track.

Use this maintenance calendar to schedule service calls from your Chicago plumber for things like your water heater and conditioner. Having these calls scheduled well in advance will allow you to make the appointments early and at your convenience. It is a pain to schedule routine checks or repairs at the last minute. This may mean you miss some work or other activities you had planned.

If you find that something comes up and you aren't able to get a job done, simply move that task to another day that is more convenient. Don’t let the calendar stress you out. It is simply a tool to help you, not something to harass you. It can be changed anytime you need to better fit your life.
