Good Habits To Prevent Wear And Tear To Your Home
- Regular Maintenance
Regularly checking and maintaining parts of your house such as HVAC systems, plumbing, appliances, and furniture can help prevent wear and tear from occurring. Make sure to clean any dust or debris from the interior and exterior of the house and keep the paint in good condition outside.
- Proper Storage
Having effective storage solutions can help reduce clutter and disorganization that causes wear and tear over time. Choose higher quality materials that will last longer when storing items in closets or pantry shelves. Use pieces with strong casters if you need to move furniture around often.
- Avoid High Traffic Areas
High traffic areas experience more wear and tear than other parts of the house due to regularly tracked-in dirt from outside being walked over multiple times a day. Install more resilient types of floorings in high traffic areas such as entryways, hallways, kitchens, bathrooms etc., for additional durability against wear and tear. Place entrance mats at doors to keep some of the excess dirt out of the area as well.
- Temperature Control
Maintaining a constant temperature throughout your home can cause fewer fluctuations in your walls, ceiling, floors etc., which means less cracking or warping over time due to fluctuating temperatures due to weather changes (flooding or extreme heat). Installing insulation where it is most needed is also beneficial in helping temperature control throughout the home — look into blown-in insulation or spray foam insulation depending on where you live, how close you are to bodies of water/towns etc.
- Cleaning Routine
Create an efficient cleaning routine for yourself that includes vacuuming carpets, dusting wall hangings/furniture (use microfiber cloth for dusting when possible), wipe down surfaces with soapy water regularly, sweeping floors frequently (high-traffic areas especially) with a good broom that has soft bristles that won’t scratch hardwood floors etc. Doing these regular tasks will help maintain a clean environment in your home which helps minimize dirt buildup on various surfaces which could cause wear and tear overtime if left unchecked.
