The Pain of Regular Home Maintenance

Dripping faucets, chipping paint, overflowing gutters, clogged vents, cracked seals and a sagging roof … ah, the joys of owning your own home!

Regular home maintenance solves these problems and protects the value, condition and safety of your home, but keeping your home properly maintained can be a major pain. Even the most-well intentioned homeowner lets preventative maintenance projects slide only to face bigger and costlier problems down the line.

Minor Nuisance Turns Emergency Repair

Before you know it, that leaking pipe under the kitchen sink has caused major water damage to your kitchen cabinets and floor. Mold can grow within 24 to 48 hours of water exposure. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, that mold can lead to allergic reactions, asthma and other serious respiratory complications.

At least with the sound of a dripping faucet keeping you up at night, you know the problem exists. Many potential problems aren’t so noisy or noticeable. Improper insulation, for example, drives up the cost of your utility bill as you have to run the heater more to keep your house warm during the cold Salem winters.

Do It Yourself Health Hazards

If you find time in your busy schedule to crawl into the attic to install insulation on your own, not only is the work exhausting, but it can also be dangerous. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warns against touching older insulation because of the risk of asbestos, which can lead to lung cancer and mesothelioma.

Your home’s health affects your health and the health of your family. For the best health, entrust your home’s maintenance in the hands of trained professionals who do it all.
