Cleanliness Is Key – Keeping your new home clean is one of the best ways you can ensure a long life for your home. Regular cleaning of all fixtures, toilets, sinks, bathtubs and appliances in your home can help to prevent rusting or corroding. Keeping your home clean will also help avoid bugs and critters wanting to move into the walls and ruin the wood or electrical.
Preventing Damages – Accidents happen, but try your best to avoid scratches, dents, holes, chips, stains or burns. All these damages can lead to the slow deterioration of your home.
Pay Attention – Check for cracks, leaks, unusual noises, chipping paint and anything else that looks or sounds out of the ordinary. Sometimes these things can be a simple fix, but ignoring the problem won’t make it go away.
The longevity of your new home relies on your ability to take care of it, especially in the first couple years. This sets the tone for years to come and if you decide to sell, it will help you to get the most for your home.
