Caring for your home can be an overwhelming job if you think of all the things that could go wrong, but if you divide up all the necessary tasks into smaller, more manageable ones you can have peace of mind while not working too hard. Having a balanced maintenance schedule that you stick close to will ensure that your home stays in good condition for longer, and as you surely know, it is a lot easier and cheaper to do maintenance than doing repairs after something has failed.
But what should you put on your maintenance schedule? This depends greatly on the type of home you own, but you should be able to find sample maintenance schedules on the internet that you later can customize to fit your needs. Of course, the most important part of any schedule is you. No matter how comprehensive and detailed your schedule is, if you don’t stick to it, it won’t serve any purpose. You could schedule just a few 10-20 minute shifts throughout the week and you will be amazed at what you can accomplish.
