Maintaining your Ajoya Capas home can seem like an arduous chore, but given the right guidance, it can be a fun and fulfilling experience. Read on for more.
Just like when owning a car or taking care of your physical body, a home requires regular maintenance. While it can be overwhelming for some, routine maintenance and regular checking allows you to preserve the value of your home, keeping it a clean and safe environment for you and your loved ones. As an example, electric cables that run across your home might have gotten some damage in the long run. If left unchecked, it could cause massive fire damage towards the interior of your home or even cost you a larger utility bill. Another example, water pipes that might have been neglected can cause major plumbing problems in the future.
When it comes to home maintenance, cliched as it sounds, the best adage to follow is: “prevention is better than cure.” Not only because it makes financial sense to prevent these problems from happening in the future, but also because it allows you to live reasonably comfortably. Here are a few tips to help you keep your Ajoya Capas home well-maintained.
Coordinate With Your Developer
First and foremost, it’s important to know the details of your property when delving into matters of maintenance. You can go about this by reaching out to your developer’s property manager to know the specifics of what constitutes your home and property.
Your developer will have sufficient information of the details of your home, from what materials were used in putting up the walls down to the nitty gritty of your plumbing system. Your developer might even be able to refer you to specialists or firms that can help maintain your home at its best quality. At the end of the day, this type of coordination gives you the knowledge you need for the proper maintenance of your home. This is why the deed of restrictions are imposed and important – to protect land values in the residential neighborhood. So working with a reliable developer is definitely a must.
Make A Checklist
As mentioned earlier, home maintenance is a lot like car maintenance – it involves a checklist. Since your home is composed of many different parts, it’s important to make sure that they’re functioning properly and are being taken care of.
For the purposes of brevity and simplicity, you can use a spreadsheet when making a maintenance checklist. In it, list down the items and parts of your house that require maintenance. Categorize them according to how frequently they need to be worked on.
For example, utilities like electricity and plumbing need to be checked on a quarterly basis to make sure that some of their parts are not broken and need replacement. As for maintaining glass or wooden surfaces, this can be categorized as daily or weekly since you’d want them to be as clean as possible. Considering the unit selections in Ajoya Capas, make sure to include porch and service area maintenance items. List all the items that you feel requires maintenance and assign them according to how frequently you have to maintain them. Make sure to add notes in case there are specifics for each of those items.
Here’s an example of what a maintenance spreadsheet would look like:
After creating a checklist, you can start creating a schedule that you can follow pertaining to the items that need maintenance. Considering the pandemic and how different kinds of viruses and bacteria can spread through surfaces, cleaning your walls and floors should be done on a daily basis. Meanwhile, for doors or furniture with moving parts, you can have these maintained on a weekly basis or when they start squeaking or show signs of damage.
At the end of the day, just having a checklist to follow not only helps you keep track of the things that need maintenance. It also helps you keep things simple and put a date on when these maintenance items can be achieved.
Adapt Minimalism As A Lifestyle
Apart from having a checklist to help you keep maintenance sweet and simple, you can also do so by adapting a minimalist way of life. Having a minimalist way of life means being intentional with the way you decorate your home, having the bare essentials and getting rid of what isn’t necessary.
When it comes to adapting a minimalist lifestyle, you have to get rid of items that don’t necessarily play a positive role in your life. Marie Kondo has been famously quoted asking this question for those who want to turn minimalist: “Does it spark joy?” It’s a good question to ask yourself when you have an internal audit of the items of your home that require maintenance. Do you really need another designed desk in your room, or can you just have a simple wooden table and chair set that saves money and space? Should I really keep the living room centerpiece or should I just replace it with multipurpose furniture?
It’s important to consider what makes you happy when you declutter and make space for your home. When you do see enough space and surround yourself with items that consistently spark joy, things become lighter and maintenance becomes much easier and simpler.
When it comes to decluttering and rearranging your home, it’s important to be on purpose as well. If for example you have a 5-bedroom home in Ajoya Capas, while it’s true that there’s a lot of space you can work with, you also need to make sure that the items you’ll be putting in each room or pathway needs to fulfill some sort of practical if not emotional purpose.
Leave It To The Experts
Of course, when it all comes down to it, hiring specialists can make maintenance all the more easier. Sure there’s a price attached to it, but at the end of the day, so long as you trust the professional you’re working with and they have a reliable list of credentials, you know that your maintenance work is going to work.
In this regard, it makes sense to determine what items you’re confident to deal with. After all, not all items on your maintenance list need the work of a professional. As an example, if you’re not particularly proficient with electronics, having your electric cables and breakers checked by a verified electrician might be a better idea than trying to DIY it. If you’re not particularly well-versed with plumbing and your toilet is having a hard time flushing, you might want to hire a professional plumber rather than searching for a YouTube video on how to deal with potential toilet congestion.
At the end of the day, not only are you giving yourself more time for yourself and your family, you’re also making sure that your home is maintained by professionals.
