Regular Maintenance is a Part of Life

From a young age we learned to brush our teeth at least twice a day, once in the morning and again at night before we go to bed. We also learned to floss and gargle with mouthwash to prevent cavities. This is preventive maintenance for your body. So, why should you treat your home any differently? The same way you maintain your body to prevent major medical issues, you maintain your home. This prevents costly repairs and prolongs the life of all your systems, from air conditioning to electrical to plumbing. Just like cavities are mostly due to neglecting your teeth, over half of all home repairs result from lack of maintenance.

So why do I need maintenance for my home?

 

We recommend having your electrical system and plumbing inspected once a year to prevent major issues. The air conditioner needs it a little more frequently- we recommend twice a year. Regular maintenance increases the lifespan of your air conditioning unit by almost 25%. Electrical inspections- which include maintaining circuit breaker panels- prevent potential fire hazards. Plumbing inspections catch small leaks before they become major, issues with your toilets before they break, and clogs that may cause drains to back up.

Many manufacturers require regularly scheduled maintenance with good documentation to keep your warranty valid. If any problems with equipment arise, the manufacturer knows it isn’t because of neglect. Whole home maintenance plans ensure your equipment is professionally cleaned and maintained, increasing its longevity, efficiency, and safety.  It’s the same as when you maintain your teeth by brushing twice a day, flossing, and visiting your dentist every 6 months. Maintaining your home ensures you avoid costly repairs and replacements. So let’s carry on that old tradition our parents instilled in us from the time we could pick up a toothbrush and practice good preventive maintenance!
