Home maintenance tasks are part of every homeowner’s set of responsibilities. Fortunately, these tasks don’t have to be stressful or overwhelming. You just need to plan your home’s maintenance for the whole year at the beginning of the year and set reminders to stay on track. Handyman Connection® of Boise explains how to set up an annual home maintenance calendar:
Set Your Home Maintenance Tasks – Determine the tasks you need to do to keep your home in good shape. Get ideas by studying your lease, or by asking for information from your local homeowners’ association. You can also search for ideas online. Sample tasks can include aerating your lawn, scheduling a roof inspection, booking an AC check, flushing your hot water heater, hiring a chimney sweep, freshening your garbage disposal, etc.
Organize Tasks According to Frequency – After determining your tasks, arrange them according to how often you need to perform them. For example, change your air filters, and clean your garbage disposal every one to two months. Inspect and reseal grout, and clean baseboards and trim every three months. Meanwhile, schedule professional inspections once a year. Group together tasks which need to be done within similar time frame.
Make the Calendar – Now’s the time to make calendar entries and set reminders. Imagine what a typical year is like for you, and arrange the tasks according to your schedule. Consider the seasons and the best time to perform certain home maintenance tasks. Then list the materials you need to complete these tasks together with the reminders. After making your calendar, your home maintenance will be on autopilot. Simply follow your reminders, and your home will stay in great condition.
