Remember how your mom always used to tell you prevention was better than cure? Well, the same applies when it comes to your home maintenance. Regular, proactive home maintenance goes a long way towards preventing small problems from turning into big headaches.
If you’re famous for ignoring little niggly issues around the house, think about how many times they’ve turned into costly repairs. If you’re honest with yourself, had you dealt with them in the first place, a major problem could’ve been avoided. Think of that dripping tap that leads to your kitchen cupboard having to be replaced, or the glass that fell out of the window because you ignored the fact that the putty needed replacing.
Regular, routine maintenance doesn’t just prevent wear and tear from turning into costly repairs but it enhances the value of your home too.
Improve your property value
Of course, if your gutters are falling and your paint is peeling, your property is going to decline in value… And it’s going to cost you that much more to fix it up than if you’d budgeted for regular, small maintenance jobs all year around. On the plus side, if you are planning to sell your house soon, and you’re able to show a history of regular maintenance, you’re likely to realise a better price on your property when it comes time to sell. Purchasers will appreciate that you’ve taken pride in maintaining your home to a high standard.
