February Monthly Home Maintenance Ideas

Liberty Trails Model

It’s inevitable; all Richmond new homes will need some maintenance from time to time. However, if you invest a little time and energy each month, the burden won’t be so overwhelming and you may avoid some major (and expensive) repairs down the road. So, what should you be working on during February? Bottom Line Secrets shares some great suggestions in a month-by-month guide.

In the month of February, homeowners should take the time to examine their kitchen and bathroom caulk. If gaps are found, this month would be a great time to do some indoor re-caulking. Also, while you’re in these rooms, inspect the sinks, toilets and showers for any signs of leaks. A local handyman may be able to handle a simple repair if plumbing repairs are not in your comfort zone.

Finally, make a call to schedule a service appointment for your air conditioning system to check that your compressor and air handler are working properly. Get your appointment scheduled for April or May and avoid the summer rush.
