Your current home maintenance checklist probably includes items like changing the furnace filter, cleaning the windows and checking your smoke detectors. But often, we forget about some vital tasks that that could prove costly if forgotten. Stop procrastinating and add these to your regular maintenance schedule.
There’s nothing worse than your air conditioner breaking down on a hot day or when the furnace stops working in the middle of a snow storm. Regular maintenance of your HVAC system will help to:
- Reduce energy use and your energy bill
- Ensure the air that is being sent into your home is clean and pollutant free
- Help ensure equipment will break down less

Updating & Refreshing
Repainting a room can be a stressful task when there are so many colour options available. But, choosing a new colour can greatly refresh a room. Don’t forget to:
- Dust and wash all baseboards and walls
- Fix any cracks and nail pops before repainting

Kitchens & Bathrooms
The most important rooms that require a routine maintenance schedule are bathrooms and kitchens. Failure to do so, due to all of the sources of water, could lead to expensive damage in the future. Be sure to:
- Inspect caulking around sinks, tubs, showers, toilets, etc. to ensure there are no leaks
- Clean tile grout to keep mold, stains and dirt from collecting
