Inside Your Home
Let’s start inside and work our way out! It is super important to stay on top of all the things that can generally cause wear and tear on your home, making it look just a little shabby and down in the dumps.
Many Florida homes have tile floors. If you are getting new floors installed, make sure to ask for some extra tiles to save in case of cracking. While a professional installation should make that unlikely, any tile will crack with enough force.
Also, make sure to have your floors professionally cleaned from time to time. Grunge can build up over time in your grout and you want to stay out in front of it!
As you live in a house, you will start to have dings in the walls and scuffs on the baseboards. It is important to have your house “freshened up” from time to time with a coat of paint. The bonus is you can pick one of the hot, popular paint colors or go neutral and let your furnishings shine.
Appliances and HVAC
When your air conditioning and fridge are running well, it is easy to become complacent. But it really does make sense to have someone come out at least bi-annually to do a check up on all your base appliances. Dryer vents get clogged, condensers wear out and it is better to know the state and be able to budget for replacements than to have to scramble when one goes out without notice.
Outside Your Home
It is so worth having a sprinkler guy out at least once a year to check out your whole system. It is sometimes hard to notice trouble until you get a horrendous water bill. Keeping an eye on your sprinklers is a great way to avoid this trouble!
Exterior House Paint
While wear on the inside paint is unsightly, problems with your outdoor paint can compromise the integrity of your home. A little chip or crack could let moisture into the envelope of your home, causing damage that will become clear over time.
Since we are talking Florida homes, it is important that you have your home tested for termites regularly. These little creatures can cause untold damage before you are even aware that they are around. A reputable “bug guy” will let you know if you have active or past damage and will be able to set you up on a maintenance program to keep those pesky bugs at bay.
Speaking of a maintenance program, it is a great idea to sign up for our Exterior Home Maintenance Program. With this we make sure to clean your roof, exterior walls, pool decks, patios and driveways quarterly or annually, assuring that your home is spotlessly clean and well maintained.
