March is filled with sweet candy, chocolate treats, beautiful bouquets of flowers, and hearts…lots of hearts…everywhere! But, don’t forget to share some of the love with your home! This month’s Home Maintenance Checklist features our annual safety check, which ensures your home’s safety features are preforming properly and that any potential hazards are avoided. Follow these steps and you’ll be on your way to a safer home environment:

  • Doors – check hinges are working properly and secure and seal tightly

  • Test smoke detector & carbon monoxide (CO) detector – change batteries every six months (when you change your clocks is a good practice)

  • Test window locks are working properly

  • Test security system (if applicable)

  • Potential fire hazards – electrical, natural gas and flammable liquids

  • Ensure adequate clearance around furnace, hot water tank, and electrical panel

In addition to our annual safety check, be sure cross off the below items to keep your home in tip-top shape this month:

  •  Clean or replace furnace filter, HRV or humidifier filter (if applicable)

  •  Clean range hood/OTR filter

  • Check exhaust fans for snow build-up around hot water tank and furnace vents. If you live within a condominium, please notify your property manager regarding any build up.

  • Perform annual safety check
