Here are Two EASY Home Maintenance Tips You Can Use Soon

Today, we're going to cover more about the importance of regularly scheduled home maintenance. I do realize that it is easy to put something off that is not actually on fire in front of you, but these things simply can not be put off indefinitely without severe consequences. Either the actual structure that holds your home up, will be compromised, something will not function or at the least, your home's value will go down, which is really major, when you go to try to sell it.

Have no fear! Some of this regular home maintenance can actually be done by the home owner, but if you're not quite comfortable with some tasks, don't worry. You can always hire a professional to handle getting it done. Contact us below to find out about qualified professionals who can take care of it for you.

One of the simplest to handle preventative maintenance tasks you can do is to trim tree branches that are touching the roof or they may touch it in the future. This may sound like something that is not really a problem, but beware. It can become serious if left alone. The actual damage will occur after the leaves have died, gotten wet, and have begun to decompose. This may not sound like a big deal, but believe me, when the rot penetrates the roofing and spreads to start rotting the wooden structural integrity of your roof trusses, it could cave in from the weight of snow, rain, the roofing itself, etc.

I'll leave you with one more tip you can benefit from. This involves replacing the return-air vent filters regularly. Again, it may not seem very important, but it can actually save some on your electric bill and help your heat and air-conditioning system last longer. This is due to the fact that the fan-motor does not have to work as hard to pull air through a cleaner filter.
