Keep a house clean%26 keep it cool After buying a new home, just like with a new car, you can take a deep breath, sit back and enjoy the new small car, the clean interior, and the bright exterior. But very soon it's time to wash the car, make an interior vacuum, check the tire pressure and change the oil. Don't wait for the metaphorical light on your home's control engine to come on. Check things regularly to avoid more expensive problems.

Think of it as preventive home care, just like preventive medical checkups. One way to easily break it down is to organize your checklist and even schedule checkups based on the seasons. Get used to preparing your home for the harsh winter and taking care of your garden in the hot summer months. Organize your checklist into categories such as patio, outdoor, and indoor.

These are just a few examples of what you can add to your own list.
