What is home maintenance?
Home maintenance is a generic term relating to the overall maintenance of your home. There are many areas of your home that need to be attended to. Primary areas can include decking, the garden, the roof, painting of walls and kerbs, window cleaning, gutter cleaning, and replacing broken lights, door handles, and hinges. There are plenty of areas that need to be maintained on a yearly basis, and some more regularly. Other areas to consider would be air conditioning units, garage doors, and security features such as locks and sensor systems.
Why is home maintenance important?
Good home maintenance will save you money. The more you maintain your products, the longer they will last. To put it simply, imagine if you never got your car serviced. The tyres would wear out, the oil would run down, and the coolant would be empty. And these are just the basics! Home maintenance will also let you know of potential issues that you would not spot if you did not check them in the first place.
How do I stay on top of home maintenance?
The same way you stay on top of everything else. Get out a piece of paper (or an Excel spreadsheet) and make a list of what needs to be maintained and when it needs to be maintained. This might sound pedantic, but it works. Otherwise, things will simply rust, fade, or break. Make January your ‘maintenance month’ where you look at the primary areas of maintenance. It might be a good idea to divide home maintenance into interior and exterior. Alternatively, you could divide it into functional maintenance and cleaning.

What is the best way to complete home maintenance in Perth?
As previously mentioned, the best way would be with a simple checklist. Once or twice a year, engage in the services of a deep cleaning specialist for your whole home. This will settle the majority of interior home maintenance. For maintenance of core appliances and products, identify a month where you will get the majority of your home maintenance completed. You need to check your roof, windows, front door, thermal efficiency, garage door, air conditioning, and timber decking. Typically, these will need to be inspected and maintained once a year.
