Home Care & Service

Extending the Life of Your Home

Your home is perhaps the largest investment you’ll make. Protect it with proper care. Regular maintenance—simple tasks like cleaning the gutter and checking for air leaks—can prevent major problems from occurring. Changing your air conditioner’s filter, cleaning the dryer’s ducts, and recaulking weatherstripping also ensure that you’re not wasting energy. Replacing the batteries on your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors is essential. We want you to live safely, healthy, and comfortably!

Clean the Filters and Vents

Dirty filters reduce efficiency and drive up energy costs. Clean or replace your air conditioning and heating system’s filter every other month. Have the system serviced by a professional twice a year for preventive maintenance and inspection.

It’s also not enough to clean the lint trap on your clothes dryer after every use. Flammable lint can build up in the vent, so be sure to have it cleaned at least once a year, or when you notice your clothes aren’t getting dry enough after one cycle.

Check the Exterior

Twice a year, check the condition of your home’s exterior. Check for cracks in the brick, stone, and stucco. Check for warped siding, gaps in wood trim, and peeling or blistering paint. Sand, scrape, stain, repaint, and apply wood preservatives wherever necessary.

Prevent Water Damage

Inspect your roof twice a year and look for broken or missing shingles that could lead to leaking. Clean your gutters at the same time to remove debris. Obstacles cause water to back up and it could seep into your home. Make sure the downspouts are also clear and sloped so that the water drains at least 5 feet away from the foundation.
