On Creating Your Own Annual Home Maintenance Calendar

An annual home maintenance calendar is a fantastic way to make keeping your home in good condition a simple task. Setting up this calendar will remove the guesswork and make sure each task gets accomplished. It will also remove all the stress from home maintenance by making sure that you stay on top of everything at all times. Handyman Connection of Mountain View explains how to set up this calendar:

Home Maintenance Calendar

  • Step 1 FIrst, you need to determine all of the maintenance tasks that your home needs in order to stay in great condition. You can do this by researching ideas online, asking experts like us, getting ideas from your lease, or contacting your homeowners association. Possible tasks can include scheduling a roof and gutter inspection, freshening your garbage disposal, and flushing your water heater. Make sure to write down everything that you need to do.

  • Step 2 Next, you need to organize your home maintenance tasks according to their frequency. For instance, some home inspections need to be done once a year, while gutter cleaning and window washing need to happen once every six months. Meanwhile trim and baseboard cleaning needs to be done every three months. Group similar tasks together.

  • Step 3 – Now you are ready to make your own maintenance calendar. Imagine what a typical year for you is like and then arrange your home maintenance tasks according to this schedule. You need to think about how your regular vacation times will correspond to maintenance tasks and aviod times when home activity and distractions are likely. You also need to consider the best times and seasons to perform certain tasks. After you’ve arranged your calendar, make sure to set your reminders and follow your calendar throughout the year.
