A home contains many complex systems that make it safe and comfortable. But to keep it operating that way, maintenance needs to be done on a regular basis. Without it, many of the systems in a home will end up breaking and needing a full repair or replacement. There are certain issues that commonly occur, and they are the first things to look out for.
Air Conditioning accounts for over 10% of reported issues, making it the most common system failure in homes. The next thing likely to fail if not maintained is door locks. If they are not kept well lubricated, they can stick and leave you locked out until the locksmith arrives. Toilets are another culprit, often clogging up and unfortunately causing further water damage if not repaired immediately.
These are just some of the common issues you may encounter if regular home maintenance is not done. There are many other items that can fail if not maintained, such as lights, bathtubs, refrigerators, and garbage disposals to name a few. But the common issues alone highlight the importance of keeping a home well maintained.
