Your home is an integral part of your daily life. It provides safety and shelter to you and your family. It is a place to build memories and enjoy time with your loved ones. And it is also a way to build future wealth. With so much at stake, investing a little time and money in regular home maintenance and upkeep is an excellent investment.
By inspecting, repairing, and replacing the various items in your home that need repair and upkeep, you will be better able to run your household more safely and efficiently.
Save Money: For every $1 spent on maintenance, approximately $100 is saved in future repairs and replacements.
Reduce Additional Damage: Things just don't fix themselves, and most of the time things get worse. One of the biggest benefits of home maintenance is its mitigation of the risk of costly secondary damage.
Validate Insurance & Warranties: If you didn’t properly maintain and care for home appliances, your insurance and warranties might not cover any repairs or replacements.
Save Energy: Keeping up with your home maintenance can help curb those expensive utility bills.
Extend the Life of Appliances: With a little upkeep, you can avoid unnecessary repair bills and expensive premature replacements.
Increase Home Value: A well-maintained home with documentation of repairs and improvements will boost resale value.
Strengthens Home Safety: By conducting regular home maintenance checks, you minimize the risk of a tragedy such as fire and theft occurring to your home.
Minimize Pests: An unmaintained home is a magnet for insects and rodents.
