It’s July and just like that, we are halfway through the year. We’re sure you’re wondering the same thing we are … Where has the time gone?!
This is July’s Monthly Checklist – Today we want to focus on the things around the house that tend to be neglected, are prone to failing and leaving you stranded.
The first thing you’ll want do this month is replace or clean all of the filters throughout the house. This includes anything and everything from your furnace filter, vacuum filter, water filters (including the one in your fridge) and your range hood filter. You should ensure all of these filters are cleaned or replaced this month.
Test all of the shutoff valves in your water supply. Examples would be your toilets, sinks, bathroom vanity and kitchen; But most importantly, the main water supply shutoff to the house. If you ever find yourself stuck with a leak, the last thing you want is to have your main water supply seized.
Lastly, go out and get yourself some Quick Dry Graphite Lubricant and apply it to all of the keyholes throughout the doors around the home. This can include your front door, side door and garage doors. You may be using Bluetooth entry, keyless pad entry and/or garage door openers; But if these ever fail, you’ll find yourself having to use keys, and if those locks are seized, you’ll be in trouble!
