Home Maintenance Tips

Published on: March 16th, 2021

Keeping up with regular maintenance is essential for keeping your home in great condition. However, we know that important home maintenance can often be neglected. If you want to take better care of your home this year, read on for our home maintenance tips:


Create a seasonal checklist

When maintaining your property, it is important to be mindful of the seasons. There are certain maintenance tasks which are more effective when completed during a particular season. Be sure to research seasonal cleaning lists to make sure that your cleaning is making the biggest impact. Having a seasonal cleaning schedule will also help to spread your home maintenance evenly and make it consistent.

Maintain a cleaning schedule

With a busy lifestyle, important home maintenance can be overlooked. Keeping a cleaning schedule can make sure you aren’t compromising on the health and safety of your home. A great way to achieve this is to book your cleaning jobs in advance. Get in touch with your local Chemwash branch to book in advance or even discuss an annual cleaning plan. Scheduling your cleaning in advance can ensure your home maintenance is taken care of regularly.

Prevention is key

Prevention is often cheaper and easier than waiting too long to do necessary maintenance. Frequent, thorough, and effective home maintenance will help to prevent small issues from turning into larger problems. Cleaning your gutters regularly prevents leaks or plumbing issues and cleaning your roof regularly can prevent a build up of moss, mould or lichen which can result in significant long-term damage. Consistent maintenance is also more cost-effective than expensive repairs which are often required after long breaks from inadequate maintenance.

Check for pests

It is important to check your home’s interior and exterior for pests regularly to prevent infestations. Pests can cause significant damage to your home and eradicating them early can make a huge difference. We recommend doing a thorough inspection every 3-4 months as the presence of pests can fluctuate with the seasons.

Hire a professional

Professionally cleaning your house is a great way to care for your largest investment. The benefits of hiring a professional cleaner include access to highly trained staff, safe and effective products, and expert knowledge. Maintaining your home is laborious and time-consuming, hiring a professional can save you a lot of time and also allows you the option to have several jobs done at once at a high standard.
