What exactly is Routine Home Maintenance? We all know that routine vehicle maintenance is important, but what about routine HOME maintenance? After all, a home is the largest single investment most people make throughout their lives.
Here’s a way to look at it. For most, we all complete (or our mechanic takes care of it) the proper preventative maintenance on our vehicles to maximize the life and performance of our vehicles. Important tasks such as oil changes, tire rotations, topping off fluids, and changing the brakes are all little tasks that make a big difference. Furthermore, changing the headlights, taillights, windshield wipers, updating the battery, cleaning the interior… can all be preventative, or reactive measures one can take to keeping their vehicles operating at their best.
Have you ever neglected one of these tasks? Only to find yourself shaking your head frustrated that you procrastinated on an item on that list that could have been resolved much earlier!
All these items should be checked and completed regularly, and they should really be completed by a professional mechanic or service technician to ensure proper services.
Like a car, your home has a lot of items that need proper routine and preventative maintenance. But unlike a car, your home doesn’t come with a manual to show you what certain items are, what they do, and how to properly maintenance them.
Why Is Routine Home Maintenance Important?
Routine Home Maintenance is like preventative vehicle maintenance. It’s a term that can be used to maximize the life and performance of your home and all the expensive appliances inside and outside your home. For example, did you know that your dishwasher has a filter that should be regularly cleaned and that your refrigerator has coils at the bottom (either on the front or back) that should be regularly cleared of all the dust and debris that can often find it’s way underneath it? Don’t get us started on the washing machine filter!

A home maintenance schedule is important for every house’s upkeep. Continuing to check on your exterior, appliances, heating and cooling, plumbing, security, and electrical systems will help prevent breakdowns, save money, and keep your home looking its best.
Top 2 Appliances That Need Routine Maintenance
A gas furnace should be serviced at least once a year, preferably twice, in both the spring and the fall. Annual maintenance, including a thorough examination and cleaning of the parts that commonly malfunction, like the air filter, the fan, the pilot light, and the heat exchanger, can usually prevent these problems.
The furnace is one of most expensive appliances in your home, so it makes sense to do the proper routine maintenance on it to help make it last longer. It also helps control dust buildup throughout your home as either the heat or cool air flows though the furnace and air ducts.
At Kura Home, we have a preferred HVAC vendor list – people who we trust and live by our values that we suggest working with. Contact us today to learn more.
Are you looking to save money? Cleaning the furnace filter to remove dust build-ups, makes it easier to regulate your home’s temperature, and ultimately decrease energy bills.
A good rule of thumb is to have your dryer exhaust vents inspected and cleaned by a professional at least once per year. If you have kids in sports, pets, and or a job that requires uniforms that get dirty often, we suggest increasing that amount every six months.
As part of our Routine Home Maintenance plans, we visit our client’s home’s once a quarter and take care of this very important task at each visit.
2,900 home clothes dryer fires are reported each year and cause an estimated 5 deaths, 100 injuries, and $35 million in property loss. This is according to www.usfa.fema.gov. Failure to clean the dryer (34 percent) is the leading case of home clothes dryer fires.
Lint is extremely combustible, and it needs to be removed away from your vents regularly.
