As homeowners we often work on the more obvious home maintenance items such as; lawn care, pest control, water leaks, and cleaning.  Some of the most important maintenance items are overlooked.  Here is a checklist of 5 important task that you should do each year.  It is also a great checklist prior to or shortly after purchasing a home. 

  1. Fireplace inspection, cleaning, and repair - This is goes for gas fireplaces and wood-burning. 

  2. Furnace cleaning and inspection - This helps the furnace run more efficiently and keeps your utility cost down.  Inspections ensure your family is safe from carbon monoxide and this is especially important when furnaces are 10 year or older. 

  3. Air duct and dryer vent cleaning - This is not something you want to ignore, dryer vents can be a fire hazard. 

  4. Gutter cleaning - I suggest doing this in the fall, prior to the winter months to ensure drainage works properly.

  5. Radon test - It is a good idea to do a radon test once a year even if you have a mitigation unit. 

I hope this is a helpful list to keep you and your family safe and healthy.
