1. Carry out periodic upgrades
After a couple of years, carry out an aesthetic upgrade to a given area in your home that you feel is worn down, or has an outdated style. E.g. You can choose to repaint the kitchen cabinets, sand down and stain doors a different color etc.
2. A stitch in time
When something is broken, or malfunctioning – take effort to have it fixed immediately before it creates a downward effect on adjacent elements e.g. a leaking roof fixe in time can prevent a ceiling from being damaged entirely
3. Deep cleaning
Create a plan to clean out every inch of your home over a given period, as this is a good way to ensure maintenance. For example, roofs and gutters should be cleaned often to ensure good quality of rain water collection and also to avoid blockage of downpipes
