In this economy, you may be tempted to delay or even skip minor home maintenance repairs, cleaning jobs and
inspections in your home. But don't be penny-wise and dollar-foolish. That $200 or $300 you save today could result in
expenditures of $3,000 or even tens of thousands next month or next year if hidden problems in your home go unnoticed
and become worse.

Consider coughing up a little dough to take care of these small jobs before they morph into gigantic, expensive jobs
later.
Annual HVAC Inspection

How often: At least once a year.

When: Spring or Fall. Heating,
ventilation and air conditioning, or
HVAC, companies aren't as busy,

Chimney Inspection

How often: Once a year.

When: Before your first fire in
winter.  Have a chimney inspection
and cleaning.  Removal of creosote
buildup can help prevent a chimney
fire.
Power Washing and Sealing Wood
Deck

How often: Every one to three years,
depending on the amount of traffic,
moss and mold.

When: Any time in sunny weather.
Carpet Cleaning

How often: Every 12 months; more often for high-traffic areas and homes with small children, pets or smokers.
Manufacturers' warranties may require cleaning every 18 to 24 months. You can save money by focusing on regular
cleanings for high-traffic areas and waiting up to two years for the entire carpet.  If the carpet looks dirty, you've waited
too long because some soil can't be removed with vacuuming. This soil will bind to your carpet and dull the texture,
shortening the life of the carpet.  Your home also will be healthier with pollen, bacteria, insecticides and dirt removed.

When: Any time.
