You’ve finally done it – you’ve just moved into your brand new home! The smell of fresh paint still permeates the air. You’re likely consumed with unpacking, setting up furnishings, rearranging, decorating – energized by the blank pallet you have to work with. But once you’ve signed the thick pile of closing documents, the moving trucks have left and everything is neatly in its place, what do you do next? It’s time to get a handle on the routine maintenance you’ll need to perform in order to ensure that you and your family live comfortably in your new home for years to come. Here’s some advice to get you started and help save money while you’re at it:
Remember to read the instruction manual for every appliance in your new home. The manuals provide recommended cleaning and maintenance schedules. If these recommendations are not followed, your warranty could become void.
Look for more information about taking care of your new home on the National Association of Home Builders website.
