Home maintenance doesn’t have to be complicated. In fact, it can be a fun and exciting bonding activity you can have with your family in your Ajoya Capas home.
Home maintenance is a duty every house owner has to fulfill on a regular basis. As a homeowner, you might have had experience dealing with the tasks related to maintenance, but you should already know that it’s something that must be done in order to preserve the comfortable experience your home brings you. In the long run, proper maintenance of your abode helps you preserve its integrity for future generations to come and prevent any sort of damage that they’ll have to pay for in the future.
Fortunately, home maintenance doesn’t have to be rocket science. All you need to have is a well thought out method of organizing and tackling maintenance tasks. That being said though, it’s important to note that outside of hiring specialists to do the tasks for you, it still takes time and work. Here is Ajoya Capas’ guide to efficient home maintenance that should help you make sense out of it all.
Put It All On Paper
As mentioned above, having an organized schedule for all the maintenance tasks that need to be done for your home is the secret to making things simpler. In this regard, you can employ the use of a spreadsheet or just a document to take note of these tasks.
Since your house is composed of many different parts, you can segment it into different categories that can help you compartmentalize and prioritize based on importance. You can also note if these specific tasks need to be done on a daily, weekly, monthly or yearly basis. Make sure to include notes for items that need to be replaced on a regular basis too, like light bulbs, circuit breakers, pipes and the like.
For example, if you’re already an existing vecino (another term for homeowner or neighbor) in Ajoya Capas, you can segment lists based on the parts of your home. Since Ajoya homes have porches and service areas, you can include these in your list and take note of what needs to be done. For example, porches require you to clean them up daily because they accumulate dust and grime more often than your home’s interior.
You’re free to format your list depending on how detailed and/ or simple you want your home maintenance to be.
Consult The Experts
Sometimes, where your home and utilities’ integrity is concerned, it’s okay to consult the experts. After all, there could be some repairs or adjustments that need to be done that’s best left to specialists who’ve not only studied in the field, but also have experience with those on a regular basis.
It’s strongly recommended, at least where utilities like electricity and water are concerned, to just get a specialist in order to lessen costs. Contrary to popular belief, hiring an expert to fix your maintenance-related concerns can actually cost less than doing it yourself. Firstly, unless you have experience in the matter at hand, there’s a chance that you’re not fixing the actual issue itself.
When it comes to plumbing, for example, you might think that using a plunger to resolve your toilet’s clogging problem is a permanent fix. When in reality, it’s only a temporary one and your repeated use of substances that melt the supposed blockage are actually doing damage to the pipes themselves. It’s instances like these that you need to take note of when considering to get professional help in maintenance.
When looking for a professional, you can ask your property manager if they know anyone who can help you out. They’re most likely going to refer you to the same firm that installed those utilities. This gives them an edge over the others as they can easily resolve it because of the knowledge of their respective installations.
Make It Fun
Maintaining your home doesn’t have to feel like a chore even if it technically is. The way you treat a task can certainly affect how regularly you do it, so it’s important to have a radical change in mindset when approaching it. In this case, if you think maintenance is boring hard work, change your mindset by going back to your why. Remember for whom you’re doing this and that it’s an honorable and dutiful task.
If you live with your family or have a family of your own, maintenance can be an important family event. Have your children participate with the tasks that you feel they can independently take on. It’s a wonderful way to 1) bond with your family and create shared experiences that will facilitate a better understanding of each other and 2) you can understand how members of your family receive and execute instructions. At the end of the day, you’re able to maintain your home and have an activity you can share every other weekend.
Talk To Your Developer
If there’s anyone who knows every nook and cranny of your home, it’s the developer and the property management department. Your developer knows your home’s entire design and structure, from the plumbing down to the electrical wiring.
So in order to lessen the risk of breaking something, consult with them on maintenance policies. It’s even entirely possible that your developer has a preferred firm of choice that they can recommend to you in your pursuit of repairing or maintaining parts of your home that concern utilities like electricity and water.
When it comes to home maintenance, it’s important to remember the adage: “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”. Think of it as a commitment to your children and their children’s children where they’ll still be able to live comfortably in their home because of regular maintenance. At the end of the day, that home that you’ve dedicated yourself to taking care of will be your legacy generations to come will appreciate.
