Regular Monthly Home Maintenance in White Rock & South Surrey BC

Carrying out regular home inspections and completing monthly home improvement projects will keep your maintenance schedule on track and easier to manage and helps prevent those costly and unexpected issues that every homeowner has experienced. A comprehensive monthly home maintenance checklist is easy to implement, both in terms of time and money. Here is a list of basic monthly home improvements Ryder Homes suggests householders should ensure are carried out in the White Rock and South Surrey BC areas:

 

  • Clean furnace filters to remove dust and hair accumulation, make it easier to regulate your home's temperature, reduce occupant allergies and ultimately decrease utility bills. Consider replacing the filter with a model of higher MERV rating – the higher the better from 1-16 especially if sensitive to dust and pet hair or dander!
  • Clean faucet aerators and shower-heads to remove mineral deposits and prevent mold formation – especially if you are one of the many Canadian Snowbirds who fly somewhere warmer for months at a time.
  • Inspect tub and sink drains for physical debris such as hairs and soap residues; unclog, again this will help prevent bigger problems in the years to come.
  • Test smoke alarms, carbon monoxide detectors, fire extinguishers, and all ground-fault circuit interrupters. These are for your safety so it’s better if they work!
  • Inspect electrical cords for wear – a carelessly moved chair, a heavy object dropped on a trailing cable can all result in a potential electrocution or fire hazard – find it safely before you step on it or grab it and literally get the shock of your life!
  • Vacuum heat registers and heat vents, removing potential allergens and saving the furnace filter from premature obfuscation.
  • Check that indoor and outdoor air vents are not blocked or restricted with cobwebs and dust on gas chimney vents, ventilation fans, tumble drier vents or HRV and ERV whole home ventilation units.
  • Check that gas fireplaces function correctly, that pilot lights are lit and that switches or thermostats are working as they should.
  • Flush out water from the hot water heater to remove accumulated sediment and check the correct operation of the gas burner.
  • Clean the garbage disposal and prevent unwanted odours by grinding ice cubes in it, then flushing with a mix of hot water and baking soda.
  • Check washrooms and powder rooms for effective water sealing – especially around shower enclosures, baths and behind sinks. So much water damage can be caused by the smallest of cracks or holes in sealant that only costs a few dollars if noticed early.
  • Check toilets for correct operation and water level in the water tank and that the water inlet valve and isolation valve are operating correctly. Also check the house’s main water valve for correct operation – if ignored and not operated these can seize, which is highly problematic if something in the plumbing system does spring a leak and you can’t turn the water off!
