A new calendar year brings new resolutions, and new goals, and many people want to improve all aspects of their lives. Your home maintenance can be a part of your New Year’s Resolutions too. Proper cleaning and maintenance of certain areas of your home will make it more livable and save you money throughout the year. Here are some tips to upgrade your home maintenance either on your own or with our help at Jacobs Ladder Window Cleaning.
1- Update Your Maintenance Budget
The first step before starting any project is to narrow down what budget you have. Home repairs and cleaning can be expensive, but when done correctly they will save you money on repairs. When you look at your budget for the new year, check to see if you have room to hire a professional cleaner or if you can afford to have a few annual services done. This will set your home up for success for the remainder of the year and help you feel like you started the year off fresh.
2- Consistent Window Cleaning
Introducing more natural light in your home is a great way to improve your health as well as the atmosphere of your home. Letting more sunlight through your windows during the winter is important for those with seasonal depression and Vitamin D is important for your immune system. Window cleaning will help all the sunlight reach farther into your home. Cleaning the interior panes, exterior panes, window tracks, and window sills will help to remove dirt, mold, and other pathogens from your home as well.
While window cleaning is something you can easily do on your own, our team at Jacobs Ladder can help take this task off your to-do list. Our professionals help your home to sparkle and keep your home dry while cleaning. We wear shoe covers inside and use ladder guards to avoid scuffing your home.
3- Inspect The Quality Of Your Gutters
Your gutters see lots of different types of debris and are exposed to all weather. Through heavy snow, strong winds, or even just normal wear and tear, your gutters can become damaged. A good place to start with home maintenance is to ensure your gutters are properly attached, properly sloped, and free of clogs. When all of these items are in check, your gutters will keep excess moisture away from your home’s foundation and keep drips off your walkways that form ice.
4- Perform Inspections
Inspections performed early in the new year on your HVAC system, plumbing, locks and doors, and other large areas of your home will save you from expensive repairs later in the year. Inspecting these areas multiple times a year will help you to diagnose any problems that may occur early on. When your HVAC, plumbing, or other electrical component goes out in your home, it can be difficult to function and be comfortable. If you want to upgrade your home maintenance and ensure your home is pristine for another year, start with a good inspection company and repair issues quickly.
5- Pressure Wash Your Exterior
If your siding, rock, or brick could use a facelift the best practice is to include pressure washing into your home maintenance routine. Pressure washing can help remove harmful bacteria from exteriors, roofs, driveways, and more. When you work with a professional pressure washer, the job will be done thoroughly while saving your home from damage.
Renting a pressure washer is an option for ambitious homeowners, but applying the right amount of pressure and staying safe on your roof can be points of frustration. Our professionals at Jacob’s Ladder can pressure wash your home in most weather conditions and have professional equipment to help us complete the job.
6- Add A Fresh Coat Of Paint
Adding some new life into your home can be as simple as a deep clean or a fresh coat of paint. Painting even one room in your home can bring more color and vibrance to your life. Paint can start to look dull or even peel off after a while, so updating your paint can help keep your home cleaner in the new year. Make sure your paint when there is enough heat to dry the paint and open windows to prevent toxic paint fumes. Adding this to your home maintenance list will set you up for a better home in the new year.
