Replace Your Air Filters, Immediately and Frequently

One of the most common things we see during our home inspections is that the air filter just need to be replaced. This is a super easy fix, and typically inexpensive as well. There are a few benefits from changing your air filters on a regular basis. First and foremost, it will prolong the life of your unit. This will also increase your air quality tremendously. You'll be able to feel the difference! Having a routine schedule to change the air filters is highly recommended by our team.


Clean Your Gutters

Gutters are pretty commonly overlooked. In fact, we have been to many homes for a home inspection and they didn't have gutters at all. If that's the case for your home, our first recommendation is to install the gutters. Gutters are integral for the proper drainage away from the home. If you already have gutters installed, our recommendation is to clean them now and stay on top of that, too. If you have gutters and they aren't kept clean, they will not be as efficient for drainage away from the home. Also, keeping them clean saves your fascia board, which will say you in repair costs later on.


Appliances? Clean Those Too!

We see that appliances are commonly overlooked when it comes to cleanings, because most of them clean themselves in the process, right? Not quite.

Cleaning your appliances when you move in and regularly will not only prolong the life of them, but will also greatly improve their performance. There is also a product for washers and dishwashers that you can just throw a tab in and run it and it will clean it mostly for you! Then you just have a little bit of manual cleaning for a practically good as new appliance! By doing this, you can extend the life of the appliance tremendously. Regular maintenance checks can also be beneficial!
