September Home Maintenance Tips by Boston Home Services

Fall September Home Maintenance Boston Home Services 617.651.2582 Professional Handyman, IKEA Furniture Assembly, TV Wall-Mounting, Property Management, Cleaning etc. Serving Homeowners and Tenants, Residential Buildings and Commercial Real Estate in Boston

Fall September Home Maintenance advice by Boston Home Services.

By following these steps you’ll avoid expensive repairs later and keep your home safe & efficient.

• Check Outdoor Paint for Peeling, Cracking & Proper Coverage – Peeling & cracking can allow moisture to get behind the paint and cause rotting and possible interior leaks. Caulk, prime, and re-paint before it gets cold in the winter.

• Inspect Attic for Insulation and Leak Stains – Insulation should be at least R-19 and you need to look for stains to determine leaks. Water will stain the insulation and since insulation can hold 30 times its weight and still feel dry to the touch, testing by touching it doesn’t work. Make sure insulation is not covering any soffit vents and add an exhaust fan if ventilation is inadequate. To check for leak sources, check during the day without any lights on. Any areas where light shines through are places where water can come through too and needs to be repaired.

• Inspect Caulking, Weather Stripping, Door Transitions, Exterior Trim, Gutters & Downspouts – If you can see outside or feel air coming in thru these areas, stopping the air flow will keep the heat inside your home in the winter and reduce your heating bills. Gutters can be cleaned with the high-pressure nozzle of a garden hose after any debris is removed. Remember any roofing nails or shingle pieces in the gutters mean you should inspect the roof as well.

• Go Through the Garage/Sheds and Move Temperature Sensitive Products to a Warmer Area – Any water-based products like latex paint will be damaged by freezing.

• Change Furnace Air Filters – Filter out allergens and keep your furnace running efficiently by changing your air filters. We recommend microbial type filters. Change monthly or as recommended by manufacturer.

• Check and Change Light bulbs as Needed

• Test All Smoke or Carbon Monoxide Detectors – push the button on the unit to check it – a few minutes doing this each month could save your family’s life in a fire

Fall is Coming – Is your Home Ready? (Essential Boston Handyman Approved Checklist)

Boston Home Services offers Gardening and Landscaping. Professional Handyman, IKEA Furniture Assembly, TV Wall-Mounting, Property Management, Cleaning etc. Serving Homeowners and Tenants, Residential Buildings and Commercial Real Estate in Boston

Fall is on its way and if your home operates under a school calendar, day-to-day activities are about to take off full speed!  Forethought is what will help you limit stress and make it through this seasonal ramp up – especially when it comes to your home.  While you’re out running errands, we can be checking off repairs and seasonal maintenance for your home.  Here’s your Boston Handyman‘s shortlist of preventative home maintenance and repairs for this fall:

  • Inspect your Roof

Keep an eye out for summertime debris (Frisbees, footballs, kites) because these are the number one enemy of gutters, and believe you me, they will get stuck.  Also, doing a sweep for missing shingles and small leaks on your roof is one of the best preventative measures you can take to avoid costly, wintertime roof damage.

  • Repair Exterior Walkways

As leaves and snow begin to cover your walkways, it will be hard for guests to not step on the broken stair, or on the tile that habitually comes loose and falls out.  They won’t be able to see the ground, so make sure it’s stable and keep your guests safe.

  • Clean Out Vents and Filters

Filters, vents, and air ducts need to be cleaned regularly.  First-off because are a fire hazard when they aren’t maintained.  Dust heats up and catches fire.  Think: heaters, dryers, fans, etc.. Additionally, dust build-up doesn’t just stay put, it will circulate debris throughout your house.  Cleaning your home will be all that more difficult if your vents and filters are dispersing dust.

  • Clean and Repair Gutters

Effective draining systems protect your home from water damage.  Filter upcoming snow, rain, sleet, etc. out and away from your home by having clean, crack-less gutters.  You will be able to maintain your home’s paint while simultaneously avoiding wood rot.

  • Seal Doorways and Windows

Don’t spend more money than you need to heat your home.  Sealing the cracks in your doorways and windows will keep your house cozy and help you go green by being more energy efficient.  This may mean swapping out windows, doors, or adding some new sealant and caulk.

  • Trim Back Tree Branches

There’s nothing quite like an unexpected snow that causing unruly tree branches to snap.  In many scenarios this will mean damage to surrounding property.  Trim back branches hanging over walkways, parking spaces, driveways, roofs, or fences – you’ll be glad you did.

Office and Store Cleaning Checklist

retail store cleaning

When you are busy running a successful company, dealing with clients, managing employees and handling contracts, the last thing you need to worry about is cleaning your office. That’s why you need a professional cleaning team. But before you hire a commercial cleaning service, make sure that you have developed an office cleaning checklist so that the cleaning service know exactly what you expect of them and what duties they will be required to undertake to fulfill their contract.

A larger commercial professional cleaner will usually have a wider variety of services to offer and often have more technologically advanced equipment, more highly trained professionals and are more experienced on cleaning much large commercial facilities.

For example, a larger commercial professional cleaner may have ultra-filtration vacuum systems (with HEPA filter to limit the amount of dust in the air), dusting equipment with nano-fibers to reduce dust and static. They may also offer extra services such as pest control, landscaping, parking lot maintenance and HVAC cleaning and maintenance. Another advantage of a larger cleaning company is that if you are not satisfied with their work they have a large enough staff to send you alternative personnel to do the job satisfactorily.

Reception Room/Foyer Cleaning Checklist

This is the first part of your facility that clients will se as they enter so it is vital that it makes a good impression. For this reason the reception area needs more than just a routine weekly dusting. It should be vacuumed daily. If it is carpeted the carpet should be stem cleaned on a regular basis to prevent it becoming stained to too dirty. If the floor is not carpeted it need to be treated and polished on a regular basis to prevent it from becoming dull. Any trash bins need to be emptied daily and all surfaces should be dusted and sanitized. Windows should be kept clean inside and out. Cobwebs should be removed from corners and ceiling s on a regular basis. Light switches and door handles should be kept clean.

Restroom Cleaning Checklist

Bathrooms absolutely must be cleaned at least one each day and more often if they have a lot of use throughout the day. This cleaning regime must include the hand basins, floors, toilet bowl and urinals. Hand sanitizers and towels should be replaced. Mirrors, hand driers and light switches should be cleaned. Waste bins should be emptied. Any air fresheners should be refilled.

Break Room/ Kitchen Cleaning Checklist

All surfaces should be sanitized particularly food preparation areas, cooking surfaces and sinks. Waste must be emptied daily. Tables and chairs should be cleansed. Remind staff not to leave left over food in the refrigerator.

Office Area Cleaning Checklist

All other areas should be dusted cleansed and vacuumed if necessary on a daily or bi-weekly basis as needed. Internal and external windows should be kept clean dan wasted should be removed regularly.

9 Quick Home Maintenance Tips

Home maintenance isn’t restricted to repairs. In fact, certain tasks–when performed regularly–may actually prevent things from breaking in the first place. But when things do go wrong (and it’s inevitable that they do), we have some backup plans that you can try before you grab the phone to call for pro. Appliances and plumbing are the most frequent offenders, but they also often can be the simplest to care for. From the gutters to the living room carpet, there’s a reliable method for keeping every part of your home clean, safe, and well maintained.

9 Quick Home Maintenance Tips

MUST-DO MAINTENANCE:

The quickest fix is to not have the problem in the first place. Here’s a checklist of items every homeowner should get to regularly.

1. Test your garage door opener monthly to ensure that it reverses when it hits an obstruction or when its sensor beam is interrupted.

2. Vacuum the clothes dryer’s exhaust duct at least once a year. If the duct is plastic, replace it (it’s a fire hazard). Rigid sheet-metal ducting is best.

3. Replace furnace filters quarterly, or as recommended by the furnace manufacturer.

4. Test all GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) outlets monthly. Press the test button and use a voltage tester to make sure the power goes off.

5. Clean leaves and debris from the condenser of a central air conditioner seasonally.

6. Once a year, vacuum the refrigerator coils underneath the appliance.

7. Have the fireplace chimney inspected and cleaned annually.

8. Inspect window and door caulking and weather stripping yearly.

9. Replace the batteries in smoke detectors yearly. And remember, even recent hard-wired smoke detectors have backup batteries that must be replaced. If you have never checked yours, do so.

How to Prevent and Deal With Frozen Pipes

A 1/8-inch crack can leak up to 250 gallons of water a day, causing flooding, structural damage and the immediate potential for mold.

How to Prevent and Deal With Frozen Pipes advice by Boston Home Services

How to Prevent and Deal With Frozen Pipes? Advice by Boston Home Services.

Why Frozen Pipes Are a Problem

Water expands as it freezes. This expansion puts extreme pressure on whatever is containing it, including metal or plastic pipes. Pipes that freeze most frequently are those that are exposed to severe cold, like outdoor water faucets, swimming pool supply lines, water sprinkler lines, and water supply pipes in unheated interior areas like basements and crawl spaces, attics, garages, or kitchen cabinets. Also, pipes that run against exterior walls that have little or no insulation are also subject to freezing.

A 1/8-inch crack in a pipe can leak up to 250 gallons of water a day, causing flooding, serious structural damage, and the immediate potential for mold.

In the US, frozen pipes cause significant damage every year, but they often can be prevented. Taking a few simple steps, even now, may save you the aggravation and expense.

Prevention

There are three common causes of frozen pipes:

1. Quick drops in temperature

2. Poor insulation

3. Thermostats set too low

There are a number of preventative steps you can take to keep your pipes from freezing:

  • Check the insulation of pipes in your home’s crawl spaces and attic. Exposed pipes are most susceptible to freezing.
  • Heat tape or thermostatically controlled heat cables can be used to wrap pipes. Be sure to use products approved by an independent testing organization, such as Underwriters Laboratories Inc., and only for the use intended (exterior or interior). Closely follow all manufacturers’ installation and operation instructions.
  • Seal leaks that allow cold air inside near where pipes are located. Look for air leaks around electrical wiring, dryer vents, and pipes, and use caulk or insulation to keep the cold out. With severe cold, even a tiny opening can let in enough cold air to cause a pipe to freeze.
  • Use an indoor valve to shut off and drain water from pipes leading to outside faucets. This reduces the chance of freezing in the short span of pipe just inside the house.
  • A trickle of hot and cold water might be all it takes to keep your pipes from freezing. Let warm water drip overnight, preferably from a faucet on an outside wall.
  • Keep your thermostat set at the same temperature during both day and night. You might be in the habit of turning down the heat when you’re asleep, but further drops in the temperature – more common overnight – could catch you off guard and freeze your pipes.
  • Open cabinet doors to allow heat to get to un-insulated pipes under sinks and appliances near exterior walls.

If Your Pipes Do Freeze…

Don’t panic. Just because they’re frozen doesn’t mean they’ve already burst. Here’s what you can do:

  • If you turn on your faucets and nothing comes out, leave the faucets turned on and call a plumber.
  • If your house or basement is flooding, turn off the water valve and immediately call 911.
  • Do not touch or use electrical appliances in areas of standing water due to electrocution concerns.
  • Never try to thaw a pipe with a torch or other open flame because it could cause a fire hazard. Every year, many building fires are caused by people trying to thaw frozen pipes. All open flames in homes present a serious fire danger, as well as a severe risk of exposure to lethal carbon monoxide.
  • You may be able to thaw a frozen pipe with the warm air from a hair dryer. Start by warming the pipe as close to the faucet as possible, working toward the coldest section of pipe.
  • Again, if your water pipes have already burst, turn off the water at the main shutoff valve in the house; leave the water faucets turned on and call 911. Make sure everyone in your family knows where the water shutoff valve is and how to open and close it. Likely places for the water turn-off valve include internal pipes running against exterior walls or where water service enters a home through the foundation.
  • If you will be going away during cold weather, leave the heat set to a temperature no lower than 55ºF.
