December Home Maintenance Tips

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX of Rochester

Here are a couple of easy home maintenance tips for you while you're getting your home ready for the holiday season.

Each year when you dig out your holiday decorations, take some time to make a visual inspection of your attic. First, check the roof and gable vents to make sure they are clear because the screens can act like lint traps. These vents are paramount because they keep the attic cool during summer. You don't want to get stuck checking these vents in the summer, when temperatures can soar into the 100s. And unobstructed vents allow moist air to escape from the attic in cold weather, lessening the possibility of condensation and mildew in the attic. While you're up there, check for wasp nests and other signs of pests. During the winter months, wasps are dormant and their nests are easier to remove.

I really like your idea to combine home maintenance tasks with things you're doing anyways, to save time & reinforce things that should be checked annually.

I'm planning to reformat my current checklists so if you wanted to look at the ones I've written & tell me what you like, that would be helpful. Easiest to fin them on my blog, http://blog.myhandymannh.com/articles/ ... under "checklists"
