July Home Maintenance Checklist
Let’s get started on this month’s checklist…

- Check Water Softener & Add Salt
- Vacuum Refrigerator Coils
- Clean Garbage Disposal
- Treat Septic Tank
- Clean Range Hood & Filter
This month we are looking at some of the unused areas of your home. It is not unusual to have a basement bathroom or sink that does not see much activity. Set aside some time this month to check these unused areas by flushing the toilet and running water to make sure leaks haven’t developed.
While thinking about water, check the water softener for salt. Avoid those hard water stains in and on appliances by maintaining an adequate level of salt in the softener.
