Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) March 16, 2012
Inspect-It 1st® has created a free whitepaper titled Home Maintenance Tips for First Time Homebuyers that highlights areas of the home that need to be routinely evaluated every year.
“As home inspectors, we are also educators to the public. This whitepaper highlights areas of the home that require proactive maintenance, but are often overlooked-especially by first time homebuyers,” stated Kylene Golubski, Vice President of Business Development for Inspect-It 1st®. “With interest rates and home prices still very low, there are lots of people looking to invest in a home.”
The whitepaper discusses the following maintenance items that should be assessed regularly in a home:
1. Garage Door
2. Water Heater
3. Washing Machine Supply Hoses
4. Clothes Dryer Vent
5. Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioner (HVAC)
6. Sink and Tub Drains
In addition to the information contained within this whitepaper, you can access a seasonal maintenance checklist and guide related to specific items/components within the home from the Inspect-It 1st® website.
Inspect-It 1st® franchisees perform residential and commercial property inspections, in addition to a variety of ancillary services that vary by geography. Specialty and niche-market inspections include: roof and mechanical, radon, septic, water quality, builder's warranty, pre-listing, mobile homes and manufactured homes.
