Home Care Tips February
You can keep your home in top shape with simple tasks throughout the year. This month, be sure to:

  1. Clean the vent duct for your clothes dryer. Fires created by clogged dryer vents are one of the most common causes of house fires.
  2. Test your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms.
  3. Make sure you and your family members know the location of all gas shut-off valves.
  4. Examine your thermostat. Clean the heat sensor, contact points, and contacts; check your thermometer's accuracy and replace if necessary.
  5. Pull out your refrigerator and clean behind the unit. Be sure to clean off the coils.
  6. Replace or clean furnace filters.
  7. Check your fire extinguishers. Refill or replace as needed.
 As always, I appreciate referrals from my friends and past clients. If you know of anyone who is looking to buy or sell real estate, please send them my way!
