Beecher, IL (July, 2020) Home maintenance can be overwhelming, but staying on top of the small stuff can save you money and help you avoid emergency repairs. This summer is sure to be very different than usual and most of us will be keeping our distance and staying home. What better time to take care of your biggest investment? Check out this brief list of necessary home maintenance tasks to take care of this summer and throughout the year: Gutters - Clogged gutters can cause a roof to leak or water to infiltrate your house. Clean your gutters at least twice a year (or more frequently, depending on how many trees surround your property). HVAC Systems- For homes with central heat and air, your HVAC system should be serviced by a technician twice a year. Remember to keep your vents clean. Plumbing- Check under sinks to make sure there are no signs of leaks. Look up at your ceilings too for water stains – a sign of a leak in the wall.
