This awesome chart by Glotech may shed some light of why it may seem at some times that everything is “falling apart” in your house at once , or why it seems that big things break seemingly out of the blue…
Not everything is meant to be forever! And you may have hit a moment where the lifespans of many things collided! That’s right, you may not be cursed, you may not have big issues… it may just be the natural progression of things… and time for an upgrade.
That said, if you look at the vast range of lifespan of many things listed, maintenance plays a big factor in the ongoing health of certain things in your home as well.
And this chart also calls to mind the fact that certain things will inevitably need to be fixed on day, so plan on the upgrades (rather than treating maintenance as some sort of life punishment as many of us do!) and you’ll never feel less than confident about the health of your home! xoxo Dana
