Although many homeowners overlook the importance of roof care and maintenance, the roof is one of the essential elements of a house. If your roof is in a poor state, it can expose your home to significant damage from nature. Moreover, your house will be susceptible to leaks and any other issues. When ignored, a leaking roof can cause the growth of mold and mildew in your home, which leads to significant health problems. Once mold and mildew have developed, repairs may become even more complex and expensive.
For this reason, having a functioning roof is very important. You can prevent such issues by inspecting the top of your house regularly. During transitioning seasons such as spring or fall, do this to ensure that your roof hasn’t been run-down by winter, hurricanes, or other hazards. Also, examine the roof for missing or damaged shingles–this causes water to leak inside your home. If you don’t have the time, you could hire a contractor to examine your roof.
There’s a chance that you’ve probably missed out on cleaning the chimney in your cleaning routine. It is because the chimney is another part of the house frequently ignored. When you use your fireplace, soot will accumulate in the duct and leave flammable debris, subsequently burning wood, which results in house fires.
It goes without being said. Cleaning your chimney helps prevent house fires. It’s best to add this routine to your annual maintenance since you’ll be only using your fireplace during the colder months. You can do this by yourself if you want to save money. Yet, creosote (a toxic byproduct from burning wood) may be present, thus hiring a professional is recommended.
For potted plants at home, you may be unsure of how often to water them. For most plants, the golden rule is to see if the first inch or so of soil is dry. If dry, this is an indication that the plant needs water. If there are leaves that have shriveled or are dry/discolored, the plant might need a little extra water than a regular routine.
A plant can recover faster from being deprived of water than one given excess water. To rescue an overwatered plant, you may need to repot the plant and remove any unhealthy roots and overwatered soil before moving the plant into a new pot.
Houseplants don’t require fertilization unless they are struggling to grow. If you’re unsure of how much or what type of fertilization to use when planting, it’s better to skip that step altogether. Too much fertilization may actually end up killing your plant rather than helping it.
We recommend scoping out where you’ll put your plant in your house before picking one out. Plants thrive once they are used to their surroundings and finding a spot with the right amount of light is important. Temperature is also important. Fluctuating temperatures will shock your plant and therefore lead to the plant not being able to develop and maybe even die. Most plants prefer temperatures of 65º–75ºF.
When buying your chosen plant, it’s always better to purchase a smaller plant over a larger one. This is because a smaller plant will be able to get more established in its home and have a larger ratio of roots to top growth. A larger plant will not continue to grow until its roots catch up with the top growth.

Wood floors may look fragile and hard to care for, but nothing could be further from the truth. A well-maintained one can pretty much withstand the abuse of pets, kids, spills and tracked-in dirt. In fact, hardwood floors are pretty easy to clean. Regular vacuuming is the best thing you can do because it removes the fine, gritty, abrasive dust that can scratch the finish. Next, use products that both clean and protect the finish so it continues to resist wear and tear. Choosing the right product to suit your needs can help get the job done faster and easier.
