How to Get Your home Ready for the Summer
The warm weather is finally upon us, which means summer is just around the corner! After the cold, long winter months, it's important to give your home the TLC it deserves. Now is the perfect time prep your home for the upcoming season! Here's some of the things you should be focusing so you can have a worry-free summer.
- Check your air conditioner Nothing is worse than a broken air conditioner during a hot summer day. Make sure to avoid this mishap by having a look at your AC to ensure it'll be up and running throughout the next few months. Don't forget to change the system's filter dirty filters clogged with dirt and dust make makes air conditioning systems work harder, so make sure you're replacing it on a regular basis.
- Inspect your home's exterior Your home's exterior could have been affected by all the snow and ice. Inspecting the exterior, especially focusing on the roof could reveal any minor problems that can be easily repaired before it gets worse. Check for any missing or cracked shingles, which can cause water to seep in and leakage. After inspecting the roof, check the exterior paint around the house for any scrapes.
- Tidy up your yard Your backyard is one of the places you'll be spending a lot of your time with family and friends during the summer, so make sure this area is safe and clean for everyone to relax and have fun. Begin by removing debris such as twigs and branches cluttering your lawn, and sprinkle soil over the area with grass seed and fertilizer to bring the grass back to life.
- Clean all patio furniture Giving your patio furniture a deep after a long winter is important. Those long cold months can leave patio furniture looking dull and dingy. Start by using a brush or cloth to wipe away any dust and loose debris that have built up over time, and then use an all-purpose cleaner or mix liquid dish soap and warm water for a good thorough clean.
- Get rid of all the mildew on your deck Did you know that moisture trapped beneath planters and debris can cause mold to grow? Mold also rots and decays wood if it's not taken care of, which will decrease its longevity. Prevent mold and mildew from growing by cleaning your deck often with a mixture of laundry detergent and water with a brush to scrub it all off.
