Household Tip of the Month

Check Your Smoke/Fire Alarms

Only a working smoke alarm can save your life.

These are your family’s first line of defense/warning in the event of a fire/smoke emergency. Your fire department reminds you to test your smoke alarms each month by pushing the alarm test button. If your smoke/fire alarm is not hard-wired, change the batteries at least annually. It’s a good idea to mark it on your calendar so that you have a regular date when all are checked each year.

Check back next month for more household tips!

Here are three home maintenance tips to think about addressing now that the gorgeous spring, actually almost summer, weather has arrived!

Wash Your Windows

The one thing that it is easy to neglect (or purposely avoid!) is cleaning your windows. After all the recent rainy weather they really are going to need it. If ladders are not your thing spend the extra few dollars to call in a professional window washing company to do those tricky second story windows. There’s nothing like the sun shining through sparkling windows to lift your spirits!

Power Wash the Exterior

Power washing is one of most efficient and cost-effective ways to clean off the dirt that’s built up on your home’s exterior after being exposed to the elements over the messy winter and spring months. Most surfaces from stucco, vinyl siding, wood and brick, to patios, porches and walkways can benefit from a good power washing and overall, give your home a quick facelift!

Check the Roof, Gutters & Downspouts

Checking the roof, gutters and downspouts is an easy job to put off. Kind of ‘out of sight, out of mind’! It’s important to repair any loose or missing shingles to avoid leakage and damage to the interior ceiling of your home, and critical to clean leaves and debris from your gutters and downspouts as build up and cause damage and prevent the water from draining properly.

Pre-sale Inspection or Not?

Before a serious buyer makes an offer on your home, he may want to have a professional home inspector check your house from top to bottom. The option of hiring a professional home inspector is open to you, the seller, as well.

An inspection in advance of putting your home on the market is a good idea. It will allow you ample time to fix the things that you may not have known about, ultimately allowing you to ask for and receive a better price for your home.

Providing a pre-inspection may also reassure prospective buyers that no major surprises are in store. Better you find them and take care of them before an inspector hired by a potential buyer discovers them!

If you need a referral to a quality inspector, contact Bill Brandsma Real Estate, specializing in Calgary and the surrounding area. Call 403-253-5678.
