Home Maintenance Plan: The Good, the Bad, and the Well Prepared

Would you let years go by without getting a dental or wellness checkup? How long would you wait to give your vehicle a tuneup? 

If you take time out of your busy life to support the health of your body and car, why would you let your home go without maintenance? After all, it’s one of the largest investments of your life!

It’s easy to forget about conserving the exterior surfaces of our home, but it’s just as important as preserving the inside. The weather in the Tampa Bay area is brutal to everything it touches, and you should always watch for signs that your outdoor living space needs attention.

In fact, a study published in the Journal of Urban Economics observed that property decreases in value or “depreciates” 2.5% every year! But with regular maintenance, the property value will actually increase by 0.75% annually.

So is home maintenance worth it? 

Absolutely! 

Maintaining your property protects your investment by preserving and even improving its value. When you consistently take care of your house inside and out, those areas last longer and do not need to be repaired as often. Let’s talk about home maintenance plans!

 

 

 

 

 

Prevention is Key

By checking up on the exterior components of your home frequently, you can save money on costly repairs. 

Pro Tip: Check if your pavers are properly sealed by spraying water on them. Watch to see if the water droplets bead or absorb. If it beads, the sealant is still going strong. But if water sinks straight into the substrate, the pavers are no longer protected.

The cost of repairs will largely exceed the price of regular maintenance if you wait until you see signs of damage such as:

  • Color fading
  • Chips
  • Cracks
  • Stains

Regularly scheduling property washes every few months and sealing every 2 to 3 years will help to preserve pavers and travertine as a part of your home maintenance plan.

By sticking to a strict cleaning schedule, you also won’t have to worry about dirt and microorganisms building up and slowly destroying all of your outdoor surfaces. 

When you join Premier Pros Home Maintenance Plan, we will routinely clean the surfaces of your choosing: 

  • Driveway
  • Walkways
  • Patio
  • Lanai
  • Pool deck

Hire Well Trained Professionals

There is more to exterior home care than buying a pressure washer and pulling the trigger. There is a right way and wrong way to clean, and the wrong way can cause irreversible harm and unsightly streaks.

You can trust Premier Pro Wash & Seal to take care of your property with proper methods and techniques that effectively clean without damage. 

Many washing services use pressure washing wands and use high PSI to blast away dirt and debris. But true professionals will know that vinyl fences, house siding, and delicate screen enclosures should only be soft washed to avoid hurting the material. 

By simply utilizing a low pressure with a special cleaning solution, months of grime rinses away effortlessly. 

By cleaning outdoor surfaces the right way, your curb appeal increases, adding years of life to every component.

How Often Does Your Property Need Maintenance?

When deciding on the right home maintenance plan for you, it’s critical to determine every component on the exterior of your house that will need regular upkeep. 

It’s difficult to figure out exactly how much time you can wait between washings. If you live in a wet area of Florida, especially near a large body of water, you will experience algae buildup much faster than someone who does not. Tree cover will also increase the speed of microorganism growth. A house with both might need a cleaning service to come out every 6 months or so.

For someone with no trees surrounding their house and no water nearby, the property can probably get away with being cleaned every 18 months. 

But the best way to discover the precise timing for your specific location will always be patient and careful observation.

Once you have outlined what needs to be done and when, you will have a complete schedule at your disposal. Don’t forget to get a free quote from Premier Pro Wash & Seal.
