Stay on Target!

Michael Hodges - Wednesday, March 15, 2017

Wrapping up our thoughts about spring preventative maintenance, here are a few more tips, recommended by HomeAdvisor, to take into account:

Do a deep housecleaning to remove dust & allergens with a top to bottom cleaning. We at FPM Properties submit this is like detailing a car: thoroughly dust baseboards and door frames, wipe down surfaces that don’t often get attention (top of water heater, washer & dryer, seals around all appliances, etc.), dust the high light fixtures and fans and blinds. Clean the grills on the appliances and clean the range hood filter—you get the idea.

Perform lawn maintenance; encourage healthy growth and prevent spread of problems. It’s a great time to do this after the slow to no growth of the winter months

Clean the garbage disposal: flush with water & dish soap to eliminate odors and reduce build up. This is especially smart if you use yours extensively.

Test smoke detectors: ensure proper function to protect home and family! Safety first!

Taking some time to put in that little extra bit of effort seasonally can forestall potential headaches down the road and provide added enjoyment of your home. From every corner of the region-- St. Johns County to Clay County to Duval County, everyone wants maximum preservation and enjoyment of their biggest investment!

Seasonal Diligence

Michael Hodges - Wednesday, March 01, 2017

From Julington Creek to Arlington to World Golf Village and all points in between, one thing every property type and style has in common is the need for ongoing preventative maintenance.

This traditionally happens seasonally but what do you do when you live in a place that seemingly has no seasons? You do it anyway—and stay particularly diligent on the maintenance items that are most impacted by hot and humid weather! In our estimation that means:

Check weather stripping and caulking around windows & doors, especially if using central air. Insuring tight seals keeps the hot, humid air out and stymies the escalation of that utility bill during the months when the AC is running non stop

Change HVAC filters. This is so important to insure the most efficient operation of your HVAC system which is working even harder during the “Florida” summer which can last easily 6 months!

Check exterior for cracked or peeling paint (caulk & repair as necessary) the ravages of exterior weather conditions (and think hurricane season) can create conditions for mildew and water intrusion—much more costly to resolve than some touch up painting and caulking

Clean windows & check door and window screens (repair as needed) Screens can be critically important during those transitional months when it hasn’t become so consistently hot all the time that you might actually open the windows! A circulation of fresh air is not a bad thing when the house will likely be sealed like a sarcophagus against the summer heat June through September!

Remove pine straw from roof, inspect condition and clean the gutters: accumulation of any material on roof can lead to moisture intrusion/damage and clog gutters

Pressure wash exterior: inhibits moisture intrusion and enhances other efforts (prior to sealing windows) and enhances curb appeal!
