Year Round Home Maintenance Checklist
Reading Time: 3 minutes
Owning a vacation home is a great investment, both socially and financially. You get to have a place to escape your everyday life and enjoy spending time with your loved ones while also enjoying the financial security of owning more than one property. However, a lot of upkeep and year-round home maintenance goes into keeping your vacation home ready for you whenever you need it.
What Kinds Of Year–Round Home Maintenance Is Needed?
The exact types of maintenance your home will need throughout the year will vary based on several factors, such as the age and current condition of your home, whether your vacation home has a pool or not, and the landscaping.
Depending on how often you visit your home away from home, you may also want to hire a housekeeper ahead of your next visit so that everything will be clean and tidy when you arrive. You won’t need to spend time cleaning your house from the accumulated dust over time, and you’ll enjoy fresh bedding and towels without having to do the laundry yourself.
Additionally, you may not know that many homeowners insurance companies will not cover any damages that happen if the home is empty for more than 30 days. For this reason, it is a good idea to hire a house sitter from time to time. This will also deter burglaries and other property crimes.
If you own a home in South Florida, there is always the threat of tropical storms and hurricanes during hurricane season, which typically lasts from the first day of June through the last day of November. The structural damage from hurricanes can be immense, and repairs can be complex and time-consuming. If you will be spending time at your home at any point during hurricane season, it is important to know how to prepare and stay safe if a hurricane happens.
