Living near the beach in Los Angeles can be quite awesome. Living ON the beach is even better. However, being so close to all that sand and sea water introduces several challenges to home care.
One of the biggest things you'll need to deal with is the higher-than-usual humidity from being in close proximity to the ocean. This will lead to a higher than usual risk of mold. Some of this can be prevented by ensuring proper ventilation in the house, however special cleaning pre-cautions should also be taken. To make things worse, if you don't keep the area clean, the humidity and mold will just continue to "cake" on to your home.
The next thing is the metal in your house. In general, salt and metal don't go well together. However, special paint and treatments can help them last longer. Ultimately, they should be cleaned regularly to prevent the salt from deteriorating the metal materials as much as possible.
Furniture will also suffer depending on the material. Plastics will fade, and of course metal will deteriorate. Persistent cleaning will definitely help reduce the damage and extend the life of your home and it's furnishings.
These are often problems that residents on the West, coastal area of Los Angeles have to deal with, especially with the water so close in places like Santa Monica, Venice Beach, and Manhattan Beach.
