Maintain a healthy home using these property maintenance basics

How to Maintain a Healthy Home

Nowadays, people are spending more time at home than before, and many are continuing to work from home. At HS Restoration, we recognize the importance of maintaining a healthy home. Here are a few property maintenance basics that will promote longevity and tranquility in your space.

Routine Maintenance

Whether you are a homeowner or renting, there is essential routine maintenance to ensure you have a comfortable living space. Every home is different and, based on the time of year, may require different levels of upkeep. Routine maintenance can help prevent future minor issues before they need major repairs. 

For instance, during the fall months, you might want to winterize your sprinkler system and hoses for the upcoming colder months. Additionally, it is good to clean the kitchen hood and exhaust fan filter all year long. It can be useful to develop a routine home maintenance checklist customized to fit the needs of your home. 

Pest Control Services

No matter what you call home, it is common to encounter a few pest issues here and there. From ants to cockroaches and everything in between, these pesky critters can put a damper on anyone’s day. Ants can frequently maneuver their way inside the house during the summer months, searching for water and food sources. 

By utilizing regular pest control, whether by hiring a professional or using store-bought pesticides, you prevent any unwelcome insects from getting a little too comfortable. And if they can’t call your house home, you are saving yourself from a potential infestation, which can become a costly issue. 

Keep the Space Clean

Nobody likes dust bunnies. Regular cleanliness, such as wiping down surfaces, dusting, and reducing clutter, helps control the causes of dust and other contaminants in your home. In addition, this prevents creepy-crawlies from wiggling their way inside and finding shelter under some excess debris built up in the nooks and crannies of your home. 

There are several wet-cleaning techniques and products out there that will leave your home shining and smelling good. However, it is important to research the different products; not every item on the shelf is safe. Some may contain chemicals that can be harmful to pets and that can even cause deterioration to your home over time. 

Install Safety Measures

A home is an investment and one that should be well taken care of for long-term benefits. For your family’s safety, a few preventative measures can be taken, such as installing smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors throughout the house. 

It is best to install smoke detectors on every floor and close to any bedrooms. Carbon monoxide detectors can also be installed near bedrooms and in the kitchen.
