Your first few weeks of the year is a great time to get in a routine of doing monthly home maintenance.
Start on your plumbing, this is a great time to clean out your pipes and get your plumbing ready to go for the new year.
Clear Your Pipes – Depending on your habits, it might be a good time to clean out your drains. If you find yourself in a state with high sediment in your pipes, it may be a good idea to descale your pipes this week as well.
Clean Shower Heads & Sinks – Sediment and hard water deposits often block the flow of water from your sinks and shower-heads by cleaning them with vinegar to make them last longer and improve your water flow.
Recalk Tubs – If you’ve noticed that the caulk around your appliances is wearing off or getting moldy, remove it and re-caulk. This will keep your plumbing more secure.
GET RID OF ICICLES AND ICE DAMS – You should be doing this all throughout the winter months, but it’s a good idea to take some extra time in January to make sure. Melting ice can run into your roof, causing leaks, flooding, and major damage to your home’s structure.
