Home Maintenance Checklist for February

We’ve compiled some great tips and an infograph to help you prioritize your home maintenance items during this still chilly month of February.

  1. Regularly check your roof for icicles and ice dams. This is a great article from This Old House on the best ways to do this.
  2. Test carbon monoxide and smoke detectors; replace batteries as needed. 
  3. Check caulking and grout around sinks, showers and tubs; repair as needed.
  4. Check for plumbing leaks on supply lines to sinks and toilets.
  5. Test and reset all electric ground fault circuit interruptor recepticals; Check all extension cords. 
  6. Repair any interior wall damage, touch up paint as needed.
  7. Clean and vacuum curtains, window blinds and ceiling fans.
  8. Vacuum and dust HVAC systems. Moisture inside the lines will cause the unit to become sluggish. Contact a licensed HVAC specialist for assistance. 
  9. Clean garbage disposal with crushed ice to sharpen the blades, then run it after placing baking soda and citrus peels in the disposal.
  10. Spruce up your entryway. After the snowy, muddy months we’ve had, a little sprucing up is called for.
