Must do Home Maintenance tasks

To avoid unnecessary troubles and repairs, its suggested that the following home maintenance tasks are carried out on a regular basis either monthly or quarterly based on your house.

  1. Replace Air Filters in your furnace: Most important thing to ensure you get fresh air and not circulating the dust back into the house
  2. Check smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detector to ensure they are working properly and replace batteries if needed
  3. Check drains for clogs and clear them
  4. Check sump pump to make sure its working fine
  5. Faucet leaks and drain leaks must be checked often.
  6. Check humidifier and condenser pumps
  7. Check water heater and if it is more than 10 years old replace it.
  8. Clean carpets regularly to avoid pile up of dirt
  9. Clean windows and screens
  10. Get rid of soap scum in bath showers and tubs
  11. Remove link from dryer vent using vacuum or some other means
  12. Adjust your thermostat settings
  13. Check for cobwebs, termites and other insects in basement

You can use this list as a starting point and create your own monthly, quarterly or yearly list. Doing home remodeling and renovation projects will add value to your house but if you do not maintain it well then there is no point in keep on renovating it. If you are too busy, you can also hire a handyman to do these tasks.
