Home Maintenance Checklist


With the hustle and bustle of everyday life, especially during the holiday season, it’s easy to forget regular home maintenance. You can easily prevent fire or water damage to your home if you take preventative measures. Now’s the time to purchase your 2019 calendar, and pencil in time throughout the year to do these home maintenance checklist items:

 

CHECK THESE MONTHLY:

  • Inspect air filters and replace if needed.  
  • Inspect fire extinguishers. Check the date, and read https://www.smtacoma.com/2018/07/31/what-kind-of-fire-extinguisher-do-you-need/ to learn about the different types of fire extinguishers. 
  • Clean your garbage disposal. To clean your garbage disposal, fill an ice cube tray with vinegar and freeze overnight. Place the vinegar cubes directly into your disposal and run the disposal and water for 10-20 seconds.  

 

CHECK THESE EVERY 3-4 MONTHS:

  • Test smoke & carbon monoxide detectors. 
  • Check your toilet tank for leaks. To check your toilet tank for leaks, place a few drops of food coloring in the tank and leave overnight. If color appears in the bowl, you could have a problem.

 

CHECK THESE TWICE A YEAR:

 

Sometimes taking all the preventative measures in the world can’t protect your home from water or fire damage. Call ServiceMaster of Tacoma at 800-339-5720 to restore your home or business and peace of mind.
