Spring is just around the corner! By the time February rolls around, I’m ready for spring which starts March 1 on my calendar. The February Home Maintenance Checklist is a short one that leaves time to enjoy the late-season snowfalls.
Complete a couple of tasks each week or finish the entire list at once. It’s up to you. Either way, there will be plenty of time to enjoy family time and your favorite winter sport.
February Home Maintenance Checklist
Let’s get started on this month’s checklist…
- Check Furnace Filters / Change If Needed
- Check Caulking Around Showers & Bathtubs
- Test Garage Door Auto-Reverse
- Clean Range Hood & Filter
- Clean Garbage Disposal
- Treat Septic Tank
- Clean & Vacuum Curtains
Checking the caulking around showers and bathtubs is a small task that could save many headaches in the future. A broken caulk line could result in a slow leak around the shower or tub. Those slow leaks can cause damage to the walls and floors around it or even damage to a ceiling below. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound in cure!
Just in case you missed January, you can find it here.
So there you have it, Cape County! A few February tasks to keep your home running smoothly all year long.
