What You Need to Know About Taking Care of Your Corner of Paradise

One pro of living in Hawaii is the mild seasons. The lack of snow, sleet, and other freezing conditions remove some tasks from a home-owners annual to-do list.

But what sort of home maintenance do you still need to consider when living in paradise? 

Water Water Water

Keep an eye out for leaks, indoor and outdoor. This will save you time and money no matter what part of the country you live in. Also, according to Handy Andy Hawaii: The average lifespan of a water heater is roughly 15 years! Checking the pressure relief valve will help you get the most milage out of yours.

Clean Your Gutters

We don't get snow, but we do get rain! And with all the fresh foliage blooming year-round, keeping your gutters clean will leave with you the peace of mind to enjoy tropical showers.

Salt Spray Scouring

If you live near the ocean, lucky you! Salt spray can be corrosive to metal-based installations (think nuts, bolts, hinges, etc.) Spraying off fixtures with freshwater help reduce corrosion.

Pests in Paradise

Just because it's paradise, doesn't mean it is heaven. Regular pest control inspections and treatments are essential in a tropical paradise. Let us know if you would like to see a blog post dedicated to pest control in Hawaii.

Keep It Clean if You're Keeping it Cool

Hawaii doesn't get cold, except when you're running the air conditioner!  Changing the filter on your HVAC system is a good habit to have because it maintains the system and helps with allergies.
