Prevent Potential Problems Before they Occur


The cold winter months are finally behind us and we are ready for the warmer Spring days, but is your home prepared? Following a home maintenance plan can help prevent potential problems before they occur.


  • Check your electrical outlets for potential fire hazards such as frayed wires or loose-fitting plugs.  Make sure outlets, fuse boxes and extension cords are not overloaded.
  • Move your multi-purpose fire extinguisher to an accessible place, and make sure it is filled and ready for operation.  Have your air-conditioning system inspected by a professional as recommended by the manufacturer.
  • Check your water heater for leaks and corrosion
  • Clean or replace your furnace filter
  • Clean the clothes dryer exhaust duct and space under the dryer.  Remove all lint, dust, and pieces of material.
  • Inspect your smoke detectors.  Make sure there is one on each floor of your home.  Test them monthly, and change the batteries annually or as needed.
  • Check the light bulbs in all your fixtures.  Be sure they are the correct wattage as recommended by the manufacturer.
  • Replace all high-intensity bulbs with fluorescent bulbs.  Other types of bulbs, like incandescent, produce more heat than fluorsscent bulbs.
  • Deep-Clean carpets, vacuum thoroughly and have them professionally steam cleaned and deodorized.


  • Check for damage to your roof.
  • Remove dead trees in your yard
  • Keep healthy trees and bushes trimmed and away from utility wires.
  • Safely store oil and gas for lawn equipment and tools in a vented, locked area.
  • Repair cracked, broken or uneven driveways and walkways to provide a level walking surface.
  • Have your sprinkler system serviced
  • Examine the exterior of the chimney for signs of damage.  Have the flue cleaned and inspected by a certified chimney sweep.
  • Check for loose or leaky gutters and clean out winter debris.  Improper drainage can lead to water in the basement or crawlspace.
