About Your Home Maintenance: Save Your Health & Money

Home maintenance is the key for a healthy and safe home environment. When the home is maintained in cleanliness and good repair it is less likely to develop significant problems in the future that will transform it into an unhealthy environment.

These problems vary from low air quality, mold and other allergens, to drafts, disease causing rodents and invasive insects. Even problems with dangerous gases such as radon could turn up in homes that don’t have maintenance plans in place. We have prepared a small checklist of things that need to be kept under control in order to minimize capital expenditures and exclude hard to your health.

So, you need to pay special attention to:

  • Siding at lower levels, deck connections, under windows and doors, around chimney.
  • Sagging or cracked masonry stoop, steps, or foundation; erosion.
  • High-stress windows and doors, sills, and caps, i.e., those without overhangs or with southern exposure or without storms or gutters.
  • Trim around chimney, under roof valleys, under poorly hung gutters, at corners or ends, discolored or mildewed wood.
  • Water that collects or runs toward the house.
  • Floors that are soft, unstable, or discolored near exterior doors; in bathrooms around toilets and tubs; cracking kitchen tiles.
  • Discolored or peeling paint inside or out.
  • Cracks in walls, especially emanating from window and door corners.
  • Basement or crawlspace water or sweating ductwork.
