Your Quick Home Maintenance Checklist!

Whether you’re a new homeowner or a seasoned, home-owning veteran, we pulled together a quick home maintenance checklist that will help keep your biggest investment organized and looking great all year long.

So without further ado, here’s our easy-to-follow home maintenance checklist:

Weekly

  • Sweep floors and vacuum carpets
  • Clean bathrooms
  • Check all drains to make sure they aren’t clogged
  • Make sure all interior and exterior light bulbs are working properly and replace as needed
  • Mow and edge lawn to maintain good curb appeal (if in season)
  • Remove weeds from flower beds (as needed)

Monthly

  • Replace air conditioning filter
  • Clean garbage disposal with baking soda, vinegar, and lemons (check out this how-to video)
  • Dust (even the hard to reach places)
  • Clean the range hood and oven
  • Visually inspect the outside of the home and look for any damaged siding, loose shingles, etc.

Annually

  • Clean gutters
  • Replace batteries in all smoke and carbon monoxide detectors
  • Have a HVAC professional inspect your A/C and heating system
  • Check your roof, shingles, flashing, and vents for damage
  • Clean and organize your garage (if you have one)
  • Check under sinks to make sure there are no signs of leaks
  • Make on upgrade that can increase your home’s value (e.g. new light fixtures, updated counter tops, etc.)

While this checklist isn’t exhaustive, it’s a great starting point to refer back to anytime you need a reminder. I hope it helps.

Happy home-owning!
