Preventative Maintenance Plans

Preventative Maintenance Plans

Have you sanitized your garbage disposal recently? When was the last time you drained and refilled your water heater? Is cleaning the showerheads on your to-do list?

Preventative Maintenance Plans in St. Charles CountyThere’s a good chance your answer to these questions is, “who actually takes the time to do those things?” Well, HandyVets does. And here’s why:

Preventive maintenance can mean the difference between maintaining the value in your home or depleting the equity you might have gained; keeping hard earned cash in your pocket, or throwing it down the drain. Routine home analysis and maintenance is a minor investment to protect the biggest investment you will ever make. The best news? A study by researchers at the University of Connecticut and Syracuse University suggests that maintenance actually increases the value of a house by about 1 percent each year.

Why should you do regular home maintenance?

  • To maintain the value of the property
  • More beautiful, comfortable, and enjoyable to live in
  • Minimize unexpected repair work and expense
  • Sells faster and usually for more money
  • Keep costs from becoming larger through neglect
  • Reduce family safety and health risks
  • A lender’s agreement usually requires the owner to maintain the property to protect the lender’s financial interest

Sobering home safety statistics:

  • 20,000 people are treated in hospital emergency rooms each year for injuries related to garage doors.
  • 15,260 injuries and 2660 deaths annually due to failure or problems with smoke alarms, sprinklers and fire extinguishers.
