How Are You Doing on Home Maintenance?

We’re halfway through the first month of 2014. Are you still sticking to your New Year’s Resolutions?

Home Maintenance Schedule

If being more organized was among your goals for the year, check out this calendar to help you care for your home. It provides guidance for how frequently home maintenance tasks need to be performed. Since your home is likely your largest investment, it’s smart to take steps to keep it in good order!

Use an app like BrightNest to help you remember these home management needs. This link also shows other handy apps for those DIY projects, like iHandyLevel, a free digital level, or Handy Man DIY, an app that allows you to enter room measurements to calculate how much paint, flooring or trim you need for your project.

Need more help? Consider registering with a free service like Home Spot to manage your home information. A service like this that can provide email alert maintenance and project reminders might be especially useful if you have multiple properties to keep track of. In addition to maintenance scheduling, it can store facts like parts, colors, services used and where you purchased materials to help you keep an ongoing record.

Here’s to a more organized 2014!
