Having a home does require some work on your part. You might not be very handy, or have any experience with home improvement, but this doesn’t mean that you need to pay others to make sure that your home is in good shape. If you go online and search for “sample home maintenance schedule” you will find many suggestions that you can adapt to your situation.
These schedules will give you a good idea of items that you should check up on and how often it needs to be done. The nice thing about having a schedule is that you can spread all these items out over the year, so that you won’t get overwhelmed. This will also lessen the risk of something expensive having a catastrophic failure that will cost a lot of money to be fixed.
Many of the items on these lists only involve a quick look or the replacement of a filter, but they can be vital to the condition of your home.
