Home Maintenance Services You Didn't Know You Needed

Life is full of surprises – one day it’s all smooth sailing and then the next, life will take you to unexpected twists and turns. I’ve got a fair share of stories about the universe throwing one curveball after another, but I’ll just save that for another blog. 😉

Now, let me make sense of the quote I mentioned when it comes to home living because this is, after all, a blog on tips for homeowners.

In owning and maintaining a house, you’ll never really know what you’ll have to deal with next -- a leaking pipe, a dead electric outlet, or a malfunctioning heating system, etc. And if you ask me, the best way to deal with such problems around the house, especially if you’re clueless about how to solve them, is to call a professional. So I thought it would be helpful to list a couple of home maintenance services that you didn’t know you need.

Carpet Cleaning

Did you know that a home’s carpet (if not properly cleaned) is 4,000 times dirtier than a toilet seat? If you think about it, toilets get more attention than carpets– they regularly get cleaned and disinfected.

No, vacuuming isn’t enough to keep your carpets clean because you’re only eliminating the dirt on the surface. You may not have realized it, but you need to have your carpets expertly cleaned. If you want to make sure that your home is safe for you and your loved ones, consider hiring professional carpet cleaners at least every year. These services help eliminate health risks in your home, promote better air quality *goodbye allergens*, improve your home’s comfort, and also extend the lifespan of your carpets.

Junk Removal

Have you ever ended up with a huge pile of junk after a thorough spring cleaning? Well, I have. For weeks I convinced myself that I’ll find time to sort through the pile and get them sorted. Unfortunately, two months after, the junk still remains in my basement. So I finally decided to just have them hauled away from my home – and that’s where I discovered the convenience of junk removal services.

At first, I thought these services were just for after-renovation clean-ups, but they were also good to use after purging your home of unnecessary stuff that you’ve accumulated throughout the years. Junk removal services will help you save time, ensure safety (no need to do the heavy lifting), and more importantly, help you regain your space.

Roof/Gutter Cleaning

Yes, roof and gutter cleaning are essential things you need to do at least once or twice a year. Believe me, you would do yourself a great favor if you hire expert roof cleaning and gutter cleaning services instead of you accomplishing these tasks.

Think about it, you’re dealing with heights here and you will need safety gears and special tools to successfully complete the job. Also, since your roof and gutters are your home’s first line of defense against the elements, you want to give them a proper TLC to keep them in top shape.

Snow Removal

I’m all into DIY, and for years every winter, I’ve been plowing deep snow and clearing my driveway and the sidewalks. However last year, I finally decided that it was just taking too much of my time and I didn’t want to go through the back-breaking work again.

I would say, hiring professional snow removal services is one of the things I will never regret. I saved myself time to do other things and I have lesser things to worry about during heavy snows, which are both priceless!


Although you can never predict what "surprises" you’ll have to deal with next in your home, it’s good to know that there a professional home maintenance services you can rely on.

I’m curious to know, what other things should we add to this list? Let me know in the comments!
