Luxury Home Maintenance
Posted on: March 10, 2016 by iSure
Owning a beautiful home is something most people aspire to do. However, the upkeep and maintenance on such grand estates is a labor of love. From keeping the curb appeal fresh to waxing real wood floors, there is no shortage of chores to maintain your home’s beauty. With these simple suggestions, your home will stay in the best shape. Further, don’t forget to secure your investment with a Miami High-Value Homeowners Insurance policy that’s been tailored just for you.
There’s no denying that curb appeal is one of the most important factors when maintaining a home. Since it’s something everyone sees, it’s important to keep up the lawns, trim the hedges, plant fresh flowers, keep the paint fresh, and update as necessary. Foliage can add beautiful greenery and depending on the variety, they’re easy to maintain. If a storm passes through, power wash the driveway to rid it of debris and dirt, as well.
Floors need to be maintained regularly. If they aren’t well-kempt, the value of the home is reduced significantly. Older wood floors should be refurbished every 5-10 years and new ones should be buffed and waxed regularly.
Use the Best Products
The types of finishes and materials that are used in your home will determine which products you need to adequately maintain them. Take into account what you have in your home and do the research. Otherwise, instead of cleaning them, you might be damaging the surfaces. For example, according to Bigger Pockets, marble and granite must not be exposed to cleaning materials with high pH levels so using wipes with water or dish liquid are often enough. By using products that are tailored to care for certain materials, they will last for years to come and continue looking luxurious.
Stay on Top of Repairs
From simple fixes to complete overhauls, repairs should be completed immediately. Not only will this prevent any further damage from occurring, but it will prevent your home’s value from decreasing.
