Home Maintenance Reminders for a Healthier Home
If you don’t have a regular cleaning and maintenance schedule at your home, it may be difficult to rememberer to keep up on routine tasks. Staying on top of regular home chores will help to keep your house clean and safe. Here are a few routine reminders to complete to make sure your home is the best condition possible.
Check smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors should be checked monthly and the batteries should be replaced every 6 months. This will ensure they are always working properly in an emergency situation.
Add a fire extinguisher. If you don’t have a fire extinguisher in your home, it’s time to get one! They can easily be ordered online or picked up at a home store. If you already have a fire extinguisher, make sure to check the expiration date. Fire extinguishers can expire, and it’s important to make sure it’s always up to date.
Replace air filter. It’s important to replace your furnace’s air filter every 2-3 months. If you have allergies or pets, you should replace it every 2 months, and if you don’t, every 3 months is sufficient. Replacing your filter keeps your home’s air quality clean, and prevents your furnace from over working.
Clean your carpet. Carpets can collect dirt, dander, mold particles, and various other things vacuuming can’t always remove. A professional carpet cleaning will remove these problems, get your carpet looking new, and extend its life over time.
Clean your blinds. If you have blinds in your home, you should schedule a professional cleaning annually. Dirt, dust, and allergens can build up on your home’s blinds and make their way into the air. Scheduling a regular cleaning will help get them looking and functioning as good as new.
Staying on top of these home maintenance chores will ensure your home is in the best possible shape it can be. If you are ready to schedule your carpet or blind cleaning, call us at 907-344-1239.
