We’ll let you in on a little secret.
We may eat, sleep, and breathe home repairs and maintenance around here, but we’re not even crazy enough to attempt a Marie Kondo–style cleanup more than once a year. To keep your home running smoothly, however, there are certain maintenance tasks that you should perform regularly.
Does the phrase Spring Cleaning spark joy for you? Spring is more than the season of renewal; it’s the season to dust away the cobwebs, polish the furniture, sweep the decks and wash the windows! After all, someone’s got to get the house ready for the first night out on the patio, right?
Summer nightlife aside, regular upkeep of your home’s interior and exterior will help you create a clean and safe environment, and will also ward off costly future repairs and replacements.
Of course, to help you keep track of all your home maintenance tasks—from flushing the septic system to fertilizing the lawn—there’s nothing like House Manager’s 12-Month Home Maintenance Calendar, chock full of useful tips and advice you won’t find anywhere else.
Enjoy the season of scrubbing!
