Home Maintenance Reminders & Checklist

Image of a toy house on a notepad with a pen representing home maintenance reminders

Day to day home maintenance tasks are easy to remember. But ones you need to do only occasionally? Not so much. And sometimes the consequences of a task slipping your mind can be unfortunate. Like letting your water heater get so old it gives up and floods the basement. (I’m speaking  from experience here.) Take a quick look at these reminders and print the list to help you remember.

Home Maintenance Reminders & Checklist

You can copy this list to a word processor document to edit and print. I like to add and sort my list by the month due. Keep the list where you’ll see it regularly. For notes you can add warranty info, date due, date done, service providers….any info that might come in handy..
