How ready is your home for summer? We’ve spoken at length about the importance of AC tune-up and maintenance, but what about the other aspects of your home? Check out the below fast fixes to keep up your home during summer stress:
Clean up your landscape: If shrubs or trees are in need of trimming, now’s the best time as they’ve already established their new spring growth. Additionally weed smarter – remember hand-pulling is easier after rain fall thanks to softened soil. Finally, ensure your outdoor sprinkler system is up to par!
Know your storm plan: Severe summer weather has lead to power outages and worse – damages to homes and belongings. With weather as unpredictable as ours, it’s important to know the location of your gas and water shutoff valves as well as knowing how to turn off the electricity in the case of an emergency.
Clean your bathroom fans: Give your fan a good, quick cleaning! First, disconnect the power at the circuit breaker. Then with a damp cloth, wipe down the blades and cover.
Tackle sidewalk mildew: Has your walkway seen better days? Clean away mildew by first spraying an outdoor mildew remover on the concrete before scrubbing away. Hose the area generously before and after to ensure you protect surrounding plants.
