to do list Use this to do list to your advantage! Home maintenance is a key factor is avoiding certain mishaps!

Homeowners must keep their property in great shape throughout the years.  It is vital to enlist the help of professionals that can help! SERVPRO of Ames & Marshalltown has provided homeowners with a "To-Do List" of household items that need to be checked for your home's health. 

Once a year:

  • Enlist the help of a plumber or handyman to drain and check your water heater.  This can help diagnose problems.
  • Replace your RO (Reverse Osmosis) filter.  It is best to have a plumber or RO technician to help you with this process.

Twice a year:

  • Clean your faucet aerator/screens.  A handyman can do this, or you can do it yourself.
  • Service HVAC system.  An HVAC company is the best choice for this service.

Four times a year:

  • Replace filters.  A handyman or yourself can do this.  A pro-tip will be to put the size of your filters in the notes section of your cell phone if you have one.  Then, set calendar alerts. 

Every two years:

  • Service your water softener.  A water softener technician or plumber can help.
