Highlands NC Homes and The Holidays
Highlands NC homes and the holidays go hand in hand. Holiday decorations, family get-togethers, and fires in the fireplace are among the things that people look forward to at this time of year. Nothing derails the festivities faster however than an oven breaking down on Christmas day, a water pipe bursting on New Year’s Eve, or some other issue in your Highlands home that places damper or undue stress on your holidays.
Murphy’s law certainly rings true when the oven breaks shortly after you have placed the Thanksgiving turkey in the oven. Luckily some holiday disaster can be avoided by routine home inspections and maintenance. Avoid the drains backing up by having them cleared once or twice a year. The drains in the bathtub, shower, kitchen sink, and dishwasher should be inspected for buildup and a drainage solution should be used periodically to avoid backups and leaks that could prove costly. If your home is a vacation home you may want to consider hiring a property manager to check on your home periodically to make sure everything is in working order upon your arrival. Taking care of a Highlands NC home is an important part of home ownership.
