Homeownership is a major responsibility, and with it comes the obligation to maintain your home to the best of your abilities. Every year, our homes and businesses focus on one annual event that is supposed to carry us through the next twelve months: spring cleaning. When the winter weather clears and our heads swim with ideas of backyard barbecues and dips in the swimming pool, we launch full-force into a whirlwind home cleaning and maintenance rituals.
These thorough but brief cleaning and maintenance sessions, though helpful for a few weeks following, are not enough to keep your home in the best shape it can be in all year long.
This year, instead of cramming all your home’s upkeep into a one-week-long spree, create a workable, seasonal cleaning and maintenance list that will keep your home clutter-free and running smoothly all year long.
Keeping a seasonal maintenance list makes maintenance more affordable, far less overwhelming, and keeps you informed of potential issues before they become acute problems (and major financial headaches). Follow this easy guide to annual home maintenance and cleaning, and sleep easy knowing that your home is in the best shape it can be all year long.
Your winter maintenance inspection should be all about keeping your home warm on the inside and protected on the outside. Even in Arizona, the winter season can be harsh on your home, and no one wants to be tasked with having to make emergency home repairs during these cold months.
Have your furnace inspected by a professional and be sure to change all air filters, so they are dust and debris-free
As the season changes, your house will go through some growing pains as it adjusts to new temperatures.
