Senior Home Maintenance Tips

Many seniors are intimidated by home maintenance and prefer to outsource it. While some home maintenance tasks require significant strength and dexterity making them unsafe for seniors, there are many maintenance projects that are quite simple and easy to do yourself. In today’s post, Handyman Connection® of Orange County, shares some tips to help seniors carry out home maintenance.

Senior Home Maintenance Tips

Freshen Up the Air

Indoor air quality affects the health of everyone in the household. Many people don’t realize that indoor air is usually much more polluted than outdoor air. Poor indoor air quality can result in difficulty or discomfort in breathing, especially during the summer months. One of the easiest ways to regulate indoor air temperatures is to get a dehumidifier for your master bedroom to reduce respiratory complications like flu, allergies, or asthma. Dehumidifiers also help clear your sinuses and reduce snoring. This also helps reduce mold and mildew growth which can permanently damage your home.

Clear the Pathways

As one ages, the risk of sustaining a serious injury from a fall increases. This is why it’s important to have clutter-free and smooth, even flooring. Make sure that you have your floors inspected and repaired by a local handyman if any issues are spotted. Even minor issues like wrinkled rugs can be a fall hazard. Another inexpensive way to make your home safer is to add non-slip rugs near the doorways, hallways and sinks.
