Easy Home Maintenance for the Weekend

When you were a kid, you spent your weekends playing with your friends, avoiding weekend homework, and just plain having fun. Now, as an adult, it seems like your weekends are spent trying to cross things off a laundry list of chores — though it seems like that list rarely gets shorter. Well, we can’t get you out of chores entirely, but we can give you some easy maintenance tasks that make your weekends a little easier.

Unclog or Flush Your Drains

A clogged drain is annoying at best and damaging at worst. Instead of ignoring clogs drains, use baking soda and vinegar to get rid of them and flush all your other drains to prevent future clogs. If you have a particularly nasty clog, it may be better to get a professional’s help.

Clean Your Gutters

This definitely isn’t the most glamorous of tasks, but it’s an important one. Dirty gutters can clog and cause water to flow back onto your roof, risking water damage, not to mention pull at your fascia. Especially after a big storm, climb up on a ladder (carefully) and clean all the leaves and debris out of your gutters.

Replace Your Showerhead

Older showerheads or ones with seven different settings use a lot of water — and that extra use all shows up on your water bill. Swap out your current fixtures for low-flow ones that use less water. You’ll be helping the environment and saving money — double win!

Change Your Air Filters

This is one of the simplest maintenance tasks you can do. Simply swap out your old, dirty filter in your HVAC unit for a new, clean one. This is essential to do at least every 45 days so your HVAC system stays in good shape.
