You have probably heard the expression “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”.

This is very much true in the case of maintaining your home. An issue that might seem minor today can lead to extremely costly repairs in the future. So what exactly does prevention mean to a homeowner?

This is something that will vary from house to house. It is a good idea to take into account the life-span of different parts of your home and then scheduling inspections that will ensure that you are able to notice any problems that will require attention.

Naturally there are some items that require more regular checkups, but by making your schedule as detailed as possible, you can spread out everything that you need to do so that you won’t be forced to spend a large amount of time dealing with many things at once.

Doing an internet search for “maintenance schedule for a home” will give you many suggestions on lists that you can use as a blueprint for your own schedule.
