The home maintenance projects for January involve regular upkeep and well as some preparation for the deep winter.
January Home Maintenance Projects
These projects that are ideally undertaken in or around January:
1. Clean rain gutters. Leave and other debris will hamper drainage and may promote rusting and roof damage. Make sure that water flowing from down sprouts is draining away from the foundation.
2. Inspect crawl space after rain for water accumulation or excessive moisture, as well as indications of water damage on the sub floor and joists beneath bathooms, kitchen and laundry.
3. Compost the leaves
4. Look for signs of pest or dry rot damage. do not block perimeter wall vents to a crawl space in winter.
Also look over the projects suggested for November and December to ensure your house is well maintained, safe and sound.
