Setting Up a Maintenance Calendar for a Healthy Home

Regular maintenance is crucial to prevent problems from showing up in various parts of your home, but how can you keep track of what needs to be checked? Experts recommend setting up a maintenance calendar. We’ve come up with a quick guide to help you make one.

Adopt Other Home Maintenance Plans

Since there will be a lot of things to observe, one of the best ways to start is to find a “base” plan to get started with your list. While each home has its own unique needs, looking at other home maintenance calendars can give you an idea of what most people usually have to deal with. You can find premade maintenance calendars online or use your home’s lease to see which tasks have to be prioritized.

Factor in Frequency

Some maintenance tasks have to be done once a year while others are weekly. Still, consider the current state of your home. A roof that’s over a decade old doesn’t warrant replacement yet, but you may have to have it checked more frequently than usual at that point. Smaller tasks such as cleaning the dishwasher or bathroom drains should be done on a weekly basis, but if you have a lot of people living in the house you may have to do those tasks more frequently.

Set Reminders for the Big Items

Big home maintenance tasks should never be held off until next month, so set reminders. Use alarms or put reminders on your fridge, anything to let you know that the date for a significant task is nearing because the next part of the plan is…

…Prep Your Stuff

The last thing you want is to find out that you have to take on maintenance tasks and you don’t have the necessary tools to get things done. If you can, set a schedule for getting all the tools and materials needed for a maintenance task at least a few days ahead. This not only precludes the rush to the nearest hardware store but also removes one more worry.

Some maintenance tasks are best left to the pros, which is why we’re always here to help. Handyman Connection is a leading provider of home maintenance services. Call us at (770) 727-8045 or fill out this online form to request a free quote.
