Hello Nina - a home checklist as you have noted here is yet another way to ensure regular/ongoing maintenance is properly addressed on a timely basis and not as an emergency which can be quite costly(on multiple levels).

Hi Nina Hollander - Just did a bunch of "Spring Cleaning" last week.  I have AC and washing machine maintenance scheduled. Already had ducts cleaned. The dryer vent is super important to remember to clean. 

Actually, just turned on the outside faucets to water all my plants yesterday.  I will keep the drip system off a little bit longer. I want to make sure there are no more freezes.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® good morning, Sheri... the "good" news for me is that it's my husband's job to schedule all thos maintenance activities, which I know he does like clockwork. And we've had so much rain (including an inch of rain on Tuesday) no need yet to worry about watering outdoors.

Norma J. Elkins thanks, Norma. I had cataract surgery yesterday, so my Wednesday was a bit of a "lost" day for me. Lots of catching up to do today after my check up with my surgeon in about a half hour. Happy Thursday to you.

Home owners can get a really good work out taking care of maintenance issues on their own. Save the hard jobs for qualified technicians. It's no joke. Homes need to be maintained!
