The single biggest task you can do for maintenance is painting. There’s an old saying that says paint covers a multitude of sins and it it true. Keep up on the painting both inside and out.
The second biggest task you can do is look for water damage. We are surrounded by water here in the Northwest. It’s in the air, it’s on the ground, it’s everywhere. Address any water damage done on both the inside and out. Trim, siding, under cabinets and in your crawl space.
