CT Mobile Home Maintenance Tips

CT Mobile Home Maintenance TipsWhile mobile homes may be more compact than their brick and mortar counterparts, they still require regular maintenance. In addition to Mobile Home Insurance Connecticut, consider the following tips to ensure the longevity of your home.

Ensure your home is properly leveled on the ground. If it is not secured, cracks along the walls, ceiling, and floors can form over time. Further, certify the skirting of your home is secured but is equipped with adequate venting. Any dents or holes should be replaced or repaired immediately.

In addition to guaranteeing a sturdy foundation, maintain the aesthetic components, as well. Regular washing of the exterior with a power washer will reduce grime buildup. Experts recommend installing a sponge attachment to the end of the power washer to scrub any dirt or stubborn areas clean. During this process, it is important to keep an eye out for any wear and tear on your home. Weather stripping and seals should be checked, as well. If any of these components are faulty, replace immediately.

Next, if your mobile home includes a fireplace, chimney connections and flues should be inspected at the beginning of each heating season and cleaned periodically, according to Mobile Home Living. Further, clean out gutters and patch any leaks or holes before the rainy seasons. All draining systems should be positioned to steer excess water away from your home.

Last, it is important to note that certain fixtures are specifically designed for mobile homes and should be consulted with a home improvement store specialist to ensure the proper ones are purchased.

With proper maintenance and care, your mobile home can provide decades of affordable, comfortable living. At Byrnes Agency, we provide a full-service portfolio of coverage to protect your investment. To learn more about how we can serve you, contact us today at one of our three locations.
