Schedule Maintenance Reminders

Homebinder makes is easy to not forget some of the mundane tasks around the house by having scheduled maintenance reminders. It comes preloaded with common reminders that we (Safeline Home Inspections) thinks are important. However, if there is something your house needs that is not on the list you have the option to add it. Some common reminders are
  • Test smoke alarms, carbon monoxide detectors, fire extinguishers, and all ground-fault circuit interrupters.
  • Perform radon testing
  • Replace air filter
  • Flush out hot water from the water heater to remove accumulated sediment.
  • Clean faucet aerators and shower heads to remove mineral deposits.
  • Check and Clean gutters
  • Get the AC serviced
  • Inspect tub and sink drains for debris.
  • Check the water softener and replenish salt if necessary.

The list can be quite extensive but you get the idea. These things are easy to forget and can become overwhelming if you let all these small tasks start to pile up. Homebinder help make sure that does not happen. We will send you an email reminder when it becomes time to perform a task. After the task has been performed it saves when it was last completed. This then provides you with a record of the maintenance of your home. How did you ever manage without it?

Store Contractor Information

A part of owning a house is maintenance. Some of the maintenance is simple enough that you can do it yourself. Some of it you may want to rely on a professional that can do it for you. When its time to tackle something that you can do yourself the question always is, “Who do you recommend?”

Well, we are happy to help you answer this question. In Homebinder there is a section that provides you with all of the contractors that we would recommend. The list is exclusive to only companies that we personally know, have seen their work first hand, and trust that they will do a great job for you. If you find your own contractors that you like feel free to add them to your list. Keeping a list of good contractors that you have previously worked with is important. You never know when something in your house is going to need fixing.

Organize Home Projects

Let’s say you are buying a house that is a fixer-upper. Or maybe it just needs a bathroom or kitchen renovation. Homebinder is the best place to keep up with any projects that you may be working on in your house. You can store whatever information you think is important for keeping up with the project. They could be things like:


  • Paint colors
  • Receipts for tax deductions
  • Appliance warranty information
  • Owners manuals
  • Installation instructions/dates

Sure you could keep all this information on a desk somewhere collecting dust and after a few months or year when you need it will be lost. Or you can save it in your hombinder account and forget about it. When you need it, it will be there waiting for you. I don’t know about you but I choose the latter.

Start a Home Inventory

Home Inventory is important. Did you know that after you move into a house you have the highest chance of being broken into and robbed? Home sales, unfortunately, are public records. Robbers know that its often a chaotic time. Everything is in boxes, and most new homes don’t have the alarm system operating yet, so they take advantage of the situation.

We recommend getting a security system install ASAP before you move in. That would be a huge deterrent. The other thing we recommend is to take inventory of the things that you own in your house. Sure, taking pictures of thing and serial numbers is a very mundane thing. But in the event of a robbery or fire and you lose everything; taking inventory is the only want to prove that you actually own what you say you own. In the case of a total loss and you fine with your insurance company. The person with the most information and inventory usually wins. Homebinder is a perfect place you store your inventory.

Utilize Your Electronic File Cabinet

This last thing is pretty self-explanatory. by uploading paperwork, reports, and receipts to the cloud for safekeeping and easy access, Homebinder becomes you one place to keeping up and maintaining your home.
