Do you own your own home? If you do then you know it requires a lot of maintenance to keep it in good shape. Sometimes the responsibility can seem overwhelming, but with the help of a good maintenance calendar and trusted professionals like the Manhattan plumbers from Roto-Rooter on your speed dial, you can be confident that your investment will be protected.
If you don’t already have a maintenance calendar, it is not difficult to make one. First, you will need to make a list of all the regular tasks that come up. These can be weekly, monthly, semiannual, or annual jobs that need to be done. For instance, you probably only need to sharpen your lawn mower blade once per season, but mowing is a weekly occurrence from April to October. Sealing your concrete patio is usually a job you do when the weather warms up after winter is over, but it probably needs to be sprayed off every week.
After you’ve got a comprehensive list made up, you can start scheduling the tasks in your calendar. Remember to coordinate this calendar with the family calendar so that you don’t over-schedule certain days. Don’t forget servicing your systems in your home like the heating and cooling and the water heater. They need regular check-ups if you want to get the most use out of them. At the first of every month, look at what jobs are coming up in the next four to six weeks. If your water heater needs flushing out that month, call the Manhattan plumbers at Roto-Rooter and make an appointment a couple of weeks in advance so it fits your schedule.
Having a specific time for everything makes it easier to stay on top of maintenance tasks. You won’t get behind and frustrated by all the work piling up that needs attention. Do not feel though that you are married to the schedule. If you have an emergency come up and cannot get the deck stained on a certain day, it can easily be re-scheduled for another week. Remember that this is a tool to make your life easier, not one to make you feel trapped.
Through the course of your yearly maintenance you will find that complicated issues will arise that require the expertise of professionals like those at Roto-Rooter. You can rest assured that they will handle these problems in a timely manner, day or night, seven days a week.
