What To Do


HVAC - Filters

Clean or replace air filters regularly to prevent unit malfunctioning.


HVAC - Gas Furnace

If you have a gas furnace, an authorized technician should review it at least once per year for proper functioning and venting.



As a general rule, be sure to keep all appliances clean from lint, grease, and grime. Particularly around moving parts (ignition switches, seals, agitators, etc) make sure working area is clean to prevent malfunctioning. Check owners manual for specific requirements of each appliance.



Wipe down wood cabinets with a non-abrasive cleaner. Apply lubricant to drawers and hinges to prevent rusting/sticking.

Always clean with non-abrasive cleansers to prevent scratching or damage.

Vacuum at least once a week. Clean professionally at least once a year. Contact your carpet installer to determine an appropriate stain remover, and use IMMEDIATELY upon staining.



Always clean countertops with a non-abrasive cleanser or a soapy cloth. Always use a trivet or hot pad when placing hot items on the counter. Check caulk/replace caulk if necessary at all counter joints.
