This time of year brings out the home maintenance scolds urging us to perform those annual chores that keep our houses safe and sound. It’s always the same — change your furnace filters, drain outdoor faucets, clean gutters. But we’ve found a fresh voice who adds a few surprises to his home maintenance list.
Lou Manfredini, host of House Smarts TV, has added some easy-to-forget chores to his home maintenance list that’ll cost you if you ignore them:
- Drain water heaters to remove sediment (This video shows you how.)
- Re-seal foggy windows
- Replace curled roof shingles
- Re-grout cracked kitchen and bath tiles
Have you neglected a maintenance chore that bit you later?
