Home Maintenance Checklist for 2019 #AskAnAdjuster

Posted on DIY January 3, 2019

As a busy business owner, I don’t get much time to learn about problems like leaky pipes until I’m suddenly up to my knees in water. I don’t know what to do about mold until I see a yellowish growth on the bathroom ceiling.This summer, we’re talking about prevention.

The Home Maintenance Checklist is for the homeowner who wants to understand what Florida home insurance covers, what the indications of a sinkhole are, and backyard landscaping techniques that are trending EVERYWHERE, especially in the Sunshine State.

Here’s how to get to Florida from our homeowners who are SO lost when it comes to facts and fix-its that it’s like they’re living in outer space.

Tune in and stay informed

You’re the homeowner who loves to do it yourself. That’s why we’re also covering summer DIY projects and home maintenance checklist fix-its for 2019.  Sign up for our animated shorts that will be sent straight to you.

The summer DIY projects that I’m most interested in take less than AN HOUR and they don’t require that many tools AT ALL. I don’t feel comfortable with my 5 year old handling a chainsaw or mixing cement, so my hacks are easy, quick and involve maybe 2 or 3 ”ingredients”. Maybe 4, but don’t worry.

You’re going to be so proud of your work and everyone is going to be super impressed. Little do they know, it took you less than an hour from start to finish. This month, we’re talking about DIY projects and questions that you can ask an adjuster.

It’s easy to call a plumber when you come home and your carpet is soaked. It’s simple to leave a screaming voicemail for your insurance company when a sinkhole starts to swallow your home. All you’ve proven is that you can Google a phone number of someone else who can do the job.

I believe that YOU can prevent these problems. You can spot the telltale signs when they’re beginning and you can be armed with the knowledge to know what to do.

Will the Home Maintenance Checklist make me an expert?

Yes. How amazing will it be when friends say, “I’ve got some mold growing my air conditioning unit and I’m scared that my family is breathing this in. Do you know how to tell if it’s mold?”

You’ll answer, “I AM the mold diagnoser.” *

I’m a Florida public adjuster, but I’m also a homeowner. To save money and to be my family’s superhero, I’m always interested in finding and trying out homeowner hacks and learning how to detect the symptoms for bigger for fixes around the house.

I’m also following commonly overlooked summer safety tips, especially because I have a pool with 3 small boys.

After buying a home, I suddenly had to add ‘handyman’ to my list. I’m starting a new campaign that positions Bulldog Adjusters as a partner to all homeowners.

What’s the BEST part about owning a home in Florida?

I’m sure that when you think of Florida, you’re thinking about hurricanes if you don’t live here. If you do live here, you’re thinking about the pool, the beach, and the electric bill after having the air conditioning on all day.

And you’re also thinking about how to avoid the mosquitos as you heat up some ribeye on the BBQ grill. I’m with you, but in Florida, you also have to think about the your Florida home insurance.

The Home Maintenance Checklist makes a bigger difference than just a fixed faucet.

Years from now you’re not going to think about how you called up the plumber to fix the pipes under the sink. You’re not going to remember going to Google and typing in, “backyard landscape company near me”.

You are going to remember getting your hands dirty while stacking stones with your spouse. Or watching your kids picking out all the grass from a spot in the yard where you’re going to create a pond in the backyard. You’re going to remember your kids faces as they look up to you, learning that hard work will produce abundance as you tighten up that leaky pipe in the bathroom.
