Steps To Set Up A Calendar To Make Home Maintenance Easy

An annual home maintenance calendar will make keeping your home in great condition much simpler. Setting up a calendar will remove the stress from home maintenance by making all of your tasks clear and by including reminders to ensure that you stay on track.

Home Maintenance

Determine Your Maintenance Tasks

First you need to determine the many maintenance tasks that your home needs to stay in good condition. You can ask for information from your homeowners’ association, research ideas online, ask an expert like us, or get ideas from neighbors. Typical tasks include scheduling an AC inspection, freshening your garbage disposal, flushing your water heater, or scheduling a roof and gutter inspection. Write down all the maintenance tasks that you need to do.

Organize the Tasks by Frequency

After making your list, organize your maintenance tasks according to how frequently you need to do them. For instance, some professional inspections are annual, while window washing and gutter cleaning need to happen once every six months. Baseboard and trim cleaning should be done every three months while cleaning the garbage disposal and cleaning your air filters should be done once every one to two months. Be sure to group tasks on a similar time frame together.

Create Your Maintenance Calendar

It’s now time to create your home maintenance calendar. Think about what a typical year for your household is like and arrange the tasks according to your schedule. Make sure to consider your regular vacation times or times when you know there will be lots of distractions and home activity. When scheduling tasks, make sure to consider the best times to perform them as well. Include the materials you need to complete each task with each entry. Finally, set the reminders and follow them throughout the year.
