The holidays are just around the corner, are you ready for family and friend visits? Repairing and maintaining your home before the holidays is a great way to keep things running smoothly through winter, and relieve any stress felt from wanting to present the best you have to offer to your guests this year. With this in mind, here are some of the best repairs and maintenance tasks to complete beforehand.
Fireplace Repair and Maintenance
Before you gather around the fire with your loved ones, it’s important to ensure everything is working properly. Having your chimney cleaned, and making sure everything is ventilating and operating safely is a good place to start. You should also inspect your chimney for cracks.
Burglaries are sadly higher during the holiday season, so ensure your friends and family are kept safe by installing or maintaining a home security system. You may also want to choose one that can detect fire.
Insulation and Sealing
Even San Diego gets chilly during the holiday months, so if you want to keep everyone comfortable this year, be sure to add insulation where needed. You may also want to check all of your seals to ensure drafts, water, and anything else you want kept out, stays out.
A dirty furnace can be a health hazard due to carbon monoxide buildup, dirt buildup, and the possibility for pipes to burst. It is important to have your furnace inspected before winter to ensure that your home is kept safe all year.
Roof Repair and Maintenance
Before the weather changes, it’s vital to have your roof inspected. Having a leaky roof can be most damaging to your home if left unrepaired. It could cause mold, leaks, and rot. Inspecting and maintaining your roof could add decades to its life, while keeping your home a safe and healthy place for your family.
Check and Clean Gutters and Drains
This is another key element in ensuring that water drains where it is supposed to go, and doesn’t find its way into your home or cause damage. This is something that should be done every year to ensure that your home stays like new for years to come.
