Owning your own home is a beautiful feeling. However, this feeling comes with the responsibility of maintenance. This maintenance does not apply only to appliances, but also the small problems that you tend to overlook in an apartment. When you fail to address these little problems on time in a house, however, it may result in more significant problems with a bill of a few hundred dollars turning into thousands. To prevent the worst from happening, here are small homes issues that you need to catch on time:

Faucet and pipe Leak

A leaky faucet or a slight leak in a pipe in the wall may seem like nothing to be worried about, but if left unattended, it could lead to severe damages. Failing to fix a leaky faucet at a slow drip can lead to expensive water bills as well as resulting in drain clogs and overflow. Furthermore, if a pipe in the wall has even a slight leak, neglecting it can damage the walls which can cause a serious issue that can impact your home's structure negatively.

Stain on the ceiling 

A weird blemish or damp spot on your ceiling is typically a sign of roof leakage. However, if you neglect the stain, then your ceiling could collapse because the drywall lining won't be able to hold the weight of water. In a worst-case scenario, untreated stains may result in dry rot in the roof beams which may cause structural damage and illness from mold growth.

Sticking doors

If you have sticking doors, they may not seem not like a big deal, but they are caused by expansion because too much moisture gets into your home. If your entry does not close properly, it will be difficult for you to heat a room efficiently, leading to a higher energy bill. Also, the moisture that gets into your room can lead to the growth of mold spores which are harmful to your health.

Dull hardwood flooring

"What possibly could go wrong?" is the question many homeowners ask when they notice the protective top coat of their hardwood floor has dulled or worn out. However, leaving a dull hardwood floor untreated will make it prone to discoloration and dirt, and you could possibly end up spending several thousand dollars on replacing the entire floor.

Missing or damaged caulk around the tub

If you notice some water is seeping behind your wall tiles or your tub, you need to seek the services of an experienced plumber or tile repair person as soon as possible. Leaving damaged caulk untreated can lead to dangerous mold deposits and also ruin the floors of the bathroom.

Do not ignore small signs of issues in your home and call a general contractor if you are unsure of the cause.
