Helpful Checklist Reminders

A little tidbit I picked up is to run the kitchen hot water until it gets hot before starting a load of dishes in the dish washer. Doing this starts the dish cycle using hot water.


• Fire Extinguisher: Check that it's fully charged; recharge or replace if needed.

• Sink/Tub Stoppers and Drain Holes: Clean out debris.

• Garbage Disposal: Flush with hot water and baking soda.

• Water Softener: Check water softener salt drum and replinish salt if necessary.

• Forced-Air Heating System: Change filters once a month if user's manual recommends fiberglass filters.


• Wall Furnace: Clean grills.

• Range Hood: Clean grease filter.


• Faucet: Clean aerator.

• Tub Drain Assembly: Clean out debris; inspect rubber seal and replace if needed.

• Floor and Outdoor Drain Grates: Clean out debris.


• Smoke Detector: Test batteries and replace if needed.

• Toilet: Check for leaks and water run-on.

• Interior Caulking: Inspect caulking around tubs, showers, and sinks; replace any if it is deteriorating.

• Forced-Air Heating System: Change semi-annually if user's manual recommends high efficiency pleated or HEPA-style filters.

• Garbage Disposal: Tighten drain connections and fasteners.

• Clothes Washer: Clean water inlet filters; check hoses and replace them if they are leaking.

• Clothes Dryer: Vacuum lint from ducts and surrounding areas.

• Wiring: Check for frayed cords and wires; repair or replace them as needed.

• Range Hood: Wash fan blades and housing.
