Considering that purchasing a new custom home requires a lot of planning and time, one of the goals is to help preserve its appeal and structure as long as you can. Holding onto that new home feel and look is important. However, as time passes, if the house is left unkempt, it can deteriorate and lose its original curb appeal. Here are a few lovely tips on how to upkeep your custom home to keep it in wonderful shape!
Establishing Routines and Set Rules
Consistent upkeep and cleaning measures should be a part of your everyday routine. Easy tasks like removing your shoes at the front door before entering your house’s main room or hanging your jacket on the coat rack all play a big role in keeping your house organized and clean. It is also a wise idea to create rules for your house to help reduce the cleaning tasks. For example, limit the rooms where eating is allowed. This is an excellent idea to avoid crumbs or food stains from appearing on your custom home’s carpets and furniture and reduces the chance of acquiring rodents or pests. Establishing some rules and routines along with upkeep will help keep your house looking fresh, organized, and clean every day.
Consistent Maintenance and Cleaning
Along with creating set routines and rules, it is essential to clean your house regularly and perform maintenance to keep a healthy, clean, and comfortable living space. Having a functional cleaning routine is the best way for taking care of your house efficiently and effectively, preventing the build-up of clutter and dirt. Just dusting, sweeping, or vacuuming can go quite a long way in maintaining your custom home’s flooring and furniture. We also recommend that you conduct a deep cleaning at least one time a month. Maintenance is vital for keeping the inside and exterior of your house updated, appealing, and fully functional. A lot of aspects of your house require maintenance, like your HVAC unit, electrical system, roof, appliances, yard, and much more, which can result in expensive consequences if left untreated.
