Simple Tips to Keep Your Home Looking and Feeling Its Best

The typical American homeowner is living in their home much longer than before, with an average of 10 years in 2012 compared to 6.5 years in 2005. People are investing in their properties for the long haul, which means proper care and maintenance are important for avoiding costly repairs down the road. While plenty of DIY tips will help boost your home’s lifespan, Shine’s residential window cleaning services can take that burden off your plate.

Our Best Do-It-Yourself Tips

Whether you are already one of our amazing customers, or just learning about Shine, our residential home services help take away the hassle of managing your home’s exterior. However, there are a few things you can do by yourself to help ensure your home’s longevity:

  • Clean out gutters twice a year to improve drainage and prevent moisture damage, wood rot, flooding, and erosion.
  • Inspect siding and trim annually for cracks, peeling paint, or watermarks. Then, spot clean, caulk, and repaint as needed. Early attention prevents costly siding replacement.
  • Sweep porch, patio, deck, and fencing to limit dirt and leaf buildup leading to premature aging, mold, and splintering boards.
  • Trim back encroaching tree limbs to prevent blown-off roof shingles or pierced exteriors vulnerable to animals and moisture.
