Caring for a home, whether old or new, can sometimes feel like a lot of work. But the Clayton team is here to make it easier with this guide to maintaining the different areas of your home. We may not be able to mop your floors or wipe your countertops down for you, but we can arm you with all the information you need to make sure your home is in tip-top shape.

Before we get started, let’s talk a little about why home maintenance is important. From move-in day to all the memories and years to come, you want to enjoy, take pride in and be comfortable in your home. Regular cleaning and maintenance help preserve your space. If you keep your home well cared for, it can last longer and need fewer repairs, replacements or upgrades through the years, potentially saving you money.

Maintaining your home can also help it hold its value over time, which could help you build equity. And it’s not just about curb appeal, although that helps. The interior fixtures, systems and features also need routine care. If you ever decide to move or buy another home, selling your current home is typically easier if the buyers knows that the home needs minimal work and is ready to move into.

Let’s dive into these helpful tips on what regular maintenance includes. From your home’s roof to its foundation, we have you covered.

Manufactured Home Systems Maintenance

It’s easy to take our home’s systems for granted when most of them are behind the scenes (and the walls). When we flip a light switch or turn on a tap, we expect them to work instantly. But just because these systems are working in the background to keep us comfortable doesn’t mean you should skip cleaning and maintaining them.
