Routine Home Maintenance

Just a reminder from The RED Team!

With a few helpful tips on routine home maintenance, you can protect your assets,  avoid costly repairs and keep those headaches to a minimum!

  • Check and/or clean air conditioners and  room fans.

  • Test for a leaking toilet by adding a  couple drops of red food coloring to the tank. If the water inside the bowl turns red, there is a leak.

  • Remove lint from the dryer to prevent fires resulting from a clogged exhaust.

  • Refrigerator doors should be sealed  tight. To make sure, place a piece of paper at the door and close it. If the  paper is easily pulled out, the rubber lining gasket needs replacement.

  • Replace the batteries in smoke detectors  and carbon monoxide detectors at least twice a year.

While routine  maintenance can minimize costly repairs in the future, some mechanical systems  and appliances can and often do break down due to normal wear and tear.
