Professional Home Maintenance is a Good Investment

For homeowners, their home is most likely their biggest investment. They are counting on it increasing in value over time, and often use a second mortgage to get cash for renovations to keep it well-maintained. Professional maintenance specialists will save you time and money when they keep your heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC), plumbing and landscaping in top condition, so you avoid any costly, and disruptive major break-downs.

Plumbing

The plumbing system is one of the most important parts of any home or commercial building. When the pipes back up and sinks and toilets start to overflow, it’s more than inconvenient, it’s unsanitary. Leaks can cause a lot of damage to a building and should be repaired as soon as they are noticed.

Water can cause dampness that never dries. It becomes a good environment for mold, fungi and other pathogens to grow. The spores from these can be transferred throughout the building through the air conditioning and heating vents causing polluted indoor air. This can be extremely unhealthy for anyone, but especially for people with respiratory problems and asthma. Dampness can also undermine the structure of the building making it unsafe.

HVAC

A well-functioning HVAC system is essential for comfortable living, but it can require a huge amount of energy to run. If the systems are regularly maintained by professional technicians, they will run at optimum level, using less energy and saving the units.

When heating or air conditioning units are not in good condition, they need to overwork to maintain the proper temperature. Thermostats may also stop working properly causing the units to run constantly and never cycle off. This not only uses an excessive amount of energy, it also undermines the integrity of the unit, which means more break-downs and repairs. Keeping these systems well-tuned is the best way to save money and energy.

Landscaping

Keeping your yard clean and attractive is essential for curb appeal for you home. Commercial property also needs to look well maintained as part of its brand image. You may need seasonal care such as general cleaning and removing debris after winter, or more focused care of your garden such as weed abatement, lawn maintenance, tree care, fertilization, insect control and water management. This is a lot of work for a busy family, especially snow removal and lawn care, which need to be done on a regular basis.

Home and Office Cleaning

Regular cleaning of your home takes time and effort out of your already busy day. When you are tired, you may not clean as thoroughly as you would like. Light dusting of your furniture and vacuuming are not enough to keep bathrooms and kitchens hygienic. Commercial buildings need professional janitor service to maintain a clean and healthy workplace.

It’s important to keep plumbing, electrical and HVAC systems running efficiently to save money and energy. With regular, home maintenance, you can keep your biggest investment in top condition for comfortable and healthy living today and the best possible profit in the future.
