5 Important Maintenance Checks for Homeowners

Maintaining your home is going to be important for you to keep on top of. Like cleaning the house, it’s best to have a good idea of what you can do to keep your home in tip top condition. Here are 5 checks you should perform on a yearly basis.

1. Check for cracks or leaks

Having leaks or cracks in the home can cause damp and other structural damage to your home, sometimes without even realising it. This is the time for you to make sure your home is structurally sound. Doing a bit of ground investigation will give you peace of mind in the colder months.

2. Check boiler pressure

Having a functional boiler is going to help you gain a lot of reassurance when it comes to heating the home and ensuring it works properly. It should be serviced annually, and regular maintenance will ensure that your boiler is in tip top condition all year round.

3. Check the gutters

Clear out your gutters on a regular basis. In the autumn and winter they can get overfilled with leaves and other debris which can cause clogs and leaks across the outside of your home. Keep these areas clean to reduce the amount of damp or cracks that could form on the outside of your house.

4. Inspect your roof tiles

If there are any tiles that are damaged or missing, you should replace them as soon as possible. Having a lot of rain fall down in these areas can cause leaks very quickly, so it’s important that they are fixed up.

5. Check for seasonal damage

Winter can cause many issues around the house, like too much moisture in the air or plant damage. Similarly in the summer there’s often a number of instances where the grass is too dry or it’s caused the wood around your home to expand. Keep an eye on these all year round for any significant changes.
