A home that’s not maintained properly can be unsafe for yourself, your family and your neighborhood. This is why you should routinely check different areas in your home to make sure they’re working as expected. If you’d like a bit of guidance in this department, this post can work as a checklist you can go over to learn what components you should keep in check at home.

Regular Maintenance at Home

Structure

Your home’s foundation, roof, walls and overall structure have to endure a lot, which is why it’s only fair for you to inspect and maintain them as they need it to ensure that all is well.

Electrical System

We depend on electricity for a myriad of different things. Having an electrician check your electrical installations can ensure that you won’t have to suffer without it if something isn’t right.

Plumbing

Plumbing is also a crucial component of your home, which is why you should upkeep it. This includes your water and gas pipes, which can cause big problems if not maintained properly.

Outdoors

Clogged gutters and downspouts, dead leaves on the ground, and a poorly maintained garden can not only be unsightly, but may lead to water or fire damaged under certain circumstances.

Insulation

If you insulate your home to keep the heat in during winter, to reduce noise contamination, or to save on your electric bill, you may want to have it properly checked at least once a year.

Waterproofing

You may not get a lot of rain in Las Vegas, but that doesn’t mean that you’re free of water damage. If you waterproof your roof, basement or other areas, reinforce it on a yearly basis.  

Smoke Detectors

Smoke detectors are a great tool that can help keep you and your family safe in a fiery emergency. Still, they need to be tested once a month to ensure they work as they should.

AC System

If you’re lucky enough to have an air conditioning system to cool off during those hot desert days, make sure to have a technician come and give it maintenance to keep it functional.

Heating Devices

During winter (or even during other seasons), we’re sure that you depend on your water heater, and other heating devices. However, if you want to avoid a disaster, have them inspected!

Chimney

Chimneys are a beautiful addition to any home. Still, if you want to actually use one, you need to ensure that it works properly. To do so, you need to clean it or have an expert clean it for you.

Major Appliances

What would you do without a stove, a refrigerator, a washing or a drying machine? Life would be a tad bit harder. If you want them to keep helping you out, give them proper maintenance.

Carpeting

You may vacuum your carpet thoroughly and on a regular basis. However, if you want to be completely certain that it’s free of any microbes, have it professionally cleaned once a year.

Tweaks

Every home has a few details here and there that should be fixed to keep it in mint condition. Repair that crack on the floor or that loose banister (for example), so your home stays safe.
