Many seniors now choose to age in place, staying in their current home. However, this can be challenging because a senior will have to maintain their home by themselves. In today’s article, Gutter Helmet® of Eastern Shore, the leading choice for new gutter guard systems in the local area, gives some home maintenance tips for seniors.

Flush the Water Heater

You should set a reminder in your schedule to flush the tank in your water heater at least once a year. This simple task will help prevent sediment buildup. If you don’t do this task, sediment will begin to build up at the bottom of your water tank. This will impair the function of your water tank and eventually cause the loss of water pressure and cause water leaks.

Clean Your Gutters

You should also clean your gutters regularly, particularly during fall. You want to avoid the presence of leaves, dirt and other debris in your gutters because they can cause gutter clogs. Unfortunately, climbing up the ladders and doing it yourself is not an option. It’s too risky. Instead, hire a pro to clean your gutters for you, or, better yet, install a gutter protection system. This product will protect your gutters from gutter clogs.

Check Your Toilet for Leaks

If you want to save money on your water bills, then consider checking your toilet for leaks. Add a few drops of red food coloring to your toilet tank and then wait for at least an hour. If the water in the toilet bowl turns red, then it means that you have a toilet leak. You will probably need to replace a faulty flapper or float.
