Taking Care of Your Home

Mortgage and Lending with VERICO Designer Mortgages Inc.

Proper maintenance protects the value of your home, keeps it in great condition and means less work and fewer costly repairs in the long term.

-       On the pre-possession inspection tour, the builder will explain how to operate and maintain heating, cooling and electrical water systems. You will want to know basic procedures – how to turn the systems on and off and change the settings if required, when to schedule maintenance and who to contact.

-       Before establishing a regular housekeeping routine, take a few minutes to read through the product literature provided by your builder. Follow the directions from the manufacturers to preserve the beauty of your home.

-       Place furniture away from heating and cooling vents. Keep non-carpeted floors in great shape by using easy-to-apply protectors on legs of chairs, tables and sofas.

-       Clean the eaves troughs each fall to prevent build-up of leaves and again in the spring to ensure proper waterflow. Rinsing the siding with water or washing gently with soap once a year will keep it looking great and in tiptop shape.

Ask your builder for more great tips on preserving the beauty and quality of your brand new home.
