As you age, you may find that you lack the energy, strength or agility to safely perform some of the home maintenance tasks that you used to do with ease. Fortunately, there are things you can do to ensure your home remains well maintained without compromising your own safety or well-being. In today’s post, ABC Seamless, the top choice for gutter protection products in our local area, shares important home maintenance tips for seniors.

1. Preventing Gutter Clogs

It’s important to clean your gutters regularly if you want to avoid water damage to your home. However, this activity is dangerous because it involves climbing up a ladder. We recommend hiring a gutter company to clean your gutters or, better yet, installing a gutter protection system. With a high-quality gutter protection system, your gutters will remain clog-free without you ever needing to lift a finger.

2. Changing Your HVAC Filters

You should make sure that your HVAC filters are changed regularly to ensure proper indoor air quality. Clogged, dirty filters are one of the most common issues your heating and cooling system will face. Changing your filters regularly will protect your system, improve its energy efficiency and make your home more comfortable. If you’re not comfortable doing this task yourself, ask a friend or family member to help you.

3. Inspecting Your Toilet for Leaks

Leaky toilets are one of the primary sources of wasted water in many households. Check for a toilet leak by adding a few drops of red food coloring to your toilet tank. Wait for an hour. If the water in the bowl turns red, it means that water is seeping through from the toilet tank. Fortunately, you can easily fix this by replacing the faulty flapper or float or calling your plumber to do it for you.
