Top 5 tips for home maintenance in Toronto

Prevent water damage

When we talk about home maintenance, we inevitably think of enemy No.1 ie water. So the first tip is preventing water damage especially in Toronto where people face heavy rains.For this purpose a homeowner should check periodically the roof for missing or damaged shingles and test and check the sump pump at least once a year.

Inspect doors and windows in order to stop air leaks

Residents of Toronto are experiencing extremely cold winters.For this reason, it is important that the house to be thermally insulated and the windows and doors to close properly.

Clean all the gutters

Cleaning gutters is particularly important. This maintenance should be done in every season.Uncleaned gutters can easily lead to ice dams in winter and implicitly to extremely costly repairs.

Insulate all the pipes

As I said, in Toronto, winter is not a friendly season and freezing temperatures can cause major damage. Frozen pipes are the nightmare of every homeowner. In order not to face with such a situation, all pipes susceptible to freezing must be insulated.

Check yearly the heating installations and air conditioning system

This is another important tip because both heating and air conditioning are very important in a home. So, make sure you change the air conditioner filter and clean the heating system.
