Home maintenance myths

 Here are 6 maintenance myths you need to know about:


Solid surface countertops are indestructible. Heat and hard hits can cause damage.

Smoke detectors test buttons ensure they work. Use smoke from a candle or match to test it. 

Short lawns mean less mowing. Keep lawns 1-3 inches. 

You save energy when the AC is off when you're not home. Your AC has to work overtime to cool your house when you get home.

No gutter maintenance is needed with gutter guards. Smaller debris can still get in and cleaning may still be needed. 

Permits for renovations aren't necessary. Make sure to contact your local planning office before starting a major project or build.
