Prepare Your Home for the Summer Season

It might not feel like it now, but summer is just around the corner! That makes right now a great time to get your home "summer ready” so you can sit back and enjoy all the glorious season has to offer.

Living circumstances may differ from houses to apartment or condo living, but there are many things in common that can be done to prepare for the season ahead. Let’s jump in with your where to get started list; 10 must do’s:

  1. Clean your windows inside and out so you can maximize your best views and let all of the natural light in.

  1. Inspect your windows and doors (especially the caulking and weather stripping) to ensure there aren’t any air leaks and to improve your home’s energy efficiency.

  1. Get your air conditioning unit serviced so you can be sure it is in good working order when the time comes that you need to use it.

  1. Polish up your BBQ to get ready for summer grilling!

  1. Clean your patio and outdoor furniture - this way you won’t miss you out the first of the outdoor sitting weather.

  1. Clean and inspect your deck or patio, and repair any damaged boards or structures. Pressure wash surfaces to remove dirt, grime, and mildew buildup.

  1. Get your gutters cleaned if applicable to where you live.

  1. Test your homes safety devices - smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, and fire extinguishers.

  1. Service Your HVAC System - Replace air filters, clean vents and ducts, and schedule a professional inspection to ensure that your system is running efficiently.

  1. Planning a garden? Get your flower and garden patches cleaned up, plant what can be planted in this current season and map out how it will be managed and maintained in the upcoming season.

By following these essential home maintenance tips, you can ensure that your home is ready for the season ahead. Regular maintenance not only helps prevent costly repairs, but also ensures that your home remains safe and comfortable, whether you plan to sell or as a safe haven for you and your family. Roll up your sleeves, gather your tools, and get ready to give your home the care it deserves!
