# 5- Plumbing problems are found in majority of the homes. Plumbing problems result from improper alignments and leaky joints. If the joints are not sealed tightly, they may protrude awkwardly and cause inconvenience.

If you take immediate action, water leaks can be fixed easily without having to spend substantially. By preventing water leaks, you are contributing to water conservation and saving scarce water resources.

# 8- Poor ventilation is common in majority of homes. Improper ventilation causes excess moisture to build up inside the homes which may damage the structure permanently. By excessively sealing your home, you are doing more harm than good. Allow natural ventilation as far as possible to save power bills. By allowing natural light to come into the home, you are ensuring a healthy atmosphere and air quality, good for your health.

A well maintained house can fetch a better rate when compared to a badly maintained home. By keeping your home in tidy condition, you can have good ambiance and pleasant atmosphere. By taking precautions you can save substantial money on unnecessary expenses.
