Home maintenance is one of the biggest responsibilities you will face as a homeowner. It is second to paying your mortgage. If you are a do-it-yourself type, then this won’t seem daunting to you. If you are not, then you will need to find a good handy man that you can rely on to help out with those things that are beyond your capabilities. It is a great idea to have the numbers of service people you trust at your fingertips or stored in your phone. When something goes wrong with your plumbing in Albuquerque, you want to be able to reach Roto-Rooter as quickly as possible.
How do you go about keeping track of all the appliances, systems, equipment, and other things that need regular servicing? Don’t forget that the fence needs staining and the concrete requires sealing every summer. Besides all that, there are all those little things that need fixing that crop up. The doorknob is loose, the bathroom door always swings shut when you want it to stay open, and or the faucet keeps leaking water throughout the night. As a homeowner, these jobs are your responsibility to take care of. What you need is a maintenance schedule.
To create one of these, you will need to go around your home and yard and make a list of everything that with require servicing or maintenance. Next to that task, write down how often that job needs to be done. Next, create a maintenance calendar by putting all these tasks into it. For instance, have your lawn mower tune up and blade sharpening done in the month or two preceding mowing season. It is much easier to find an available air conditioning technician in the early spring to service and recharge your system than if you wait until July. Also schedule fix-it days where you can do any repairs.
At the first of every month, go over your calendar for that month and the one or two following and make any appointments for maintenance that needs to be done. Remember, though, if you have any problems come up with your plumbing in Albuquerque, those need first priority. You can reschedule the fence painting, but water has to be dealt with immediately. Do hesitate to call Roto-Rooter to come in and help to get a handle on your plumbing problems. Water is destructive and if not taken care of immediately, it can cause a lot of damage to your home.
