Just like routine oil changes for your car or annual doctor’s visits, keeping up with regular home maintenance tasks each month will help save you from future headaches and wasted money down the line.
A yearly home maintenance checklist will make your life so much easier when it comes to remembering exactly what tasks to do in your home every month, and we’ve got you covered with this handy, printable maintenance checklist made in partnership with Hope Plumbing.
A maintenance checklist will guide you so you remember to maintain your plumbing, exterior, heating and cooling, and all the other things that will help you to avoid larger issues and keep your home looking its best. You can also use this home maintenance checklist to schedule your seasonal updates, repairs, and cleaning.
If you want to keep your house in tip-top shape, it’s a good idea to revisit this maintenance checklist monthly and as well as at the beginning of each season. But, these are not hard and fast rules, so do what works best for you and your schedule. And if any of the jobs are overly taxing or lead to more involved repairs, you might want to consider hiring a professional to help.
