Diyar Al Muharraq’s Villa Maintenance Tips For New Homeowners

Whether you are settling in at Diyar Al Muharraq or are in the final steps of purchasing of a new villa elsewhere, being a new homeowner is exciting, albeit a slightly daunting task.  

To help you on your new chapter, here’s a list of maintenance tips to help preserve the value of your property, and avoid costly repairs later on which could have been avoided.

1-Keeping reminders

The list of maintenance requirements may seem overwhelming, however most items on your list only need to be done once or twice a year. Jotting down important ‘must-do’ lists, and keeping track of when the last maintenance check has been conducted allows you to stay on the top of the game, and stay organized.

2-Trim surrounding trees

It may be one of the least glamorous tasks for homeowners, however trimming back any tree branches keep pest infestations away. You can keep the health of your plants in check by treating the soil and watering them regularly.

3- Keep an eye on general maintenance 

Have the air-conditioning units checked at least twice a year, and ensure that the plumbing, electrical outlets, and drainage systems are regularly serviced. General maintenance ought to also include changing AC filters and having the unit serviced regularly, checking smoke detectors, checking the water softener salt levels, and making sure the swimming pool is clean and filtered.

4-Get rid of the dust 

Dust is ubiquitous and it builds up in places we don’t regularly check, which can dramatically shorten the lifespan of refrigerators, washers, dryers, HVAC systems and other major appliances. Committing to regular dust removal and filter replacement will keep you healthy, reduce fire risk and save unnecessary expenses.

5- Clean your refrigerator coils

Cleaning your refrigerator’s coils will keep it running more efficiently and extend its life.

6- Make Sure You Know Where Utility Shut-Offs Are Located
