Home Maintenance Checklist for Summer
Summer time is the perfect environment for home improvement projects that require you to get your hands dirty – just be sure to stay cool and hydrated!
Below are some general home maintenance tasks to add to your to-do list:
Check smoke detectors: According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, smoke detectors should be tested at least once a month and batteries should be replaced at least twice a year. Review your user manual to check your smoke detectors recommended frequency.
Wash all windows, inside and out: Now’s the perfect time to check for cracks or other needed maintenance.
Inspect your air conditioners: You’ll definitely need AC during these hot summer months. Don’t forget to give your ceiling fans a wholesome cleaning – you don’t want dust and lint flying everywhere.
Check your hoses and exterior faucets for leaks: This can get costly if you forget to do this before you water the yard.
Find out your watering restrictions: It’s always important to know your specific geographic watering restrictions.
Prune trees and shrubs: Remove dead foliage to keep your plants productive and maintain a tidy look.
Service your lawn mower: Safety first! Read your manual and be cautious when handling sharp blades.
Clean gutters and downspouts: Leaves and other debris can accumulate over the fall and winter seasons. Clean and remove debris to prevent any clogging or unnecessary damage.
Clean your outdoor grill: Summer means the return of BBQ season! Wipe down the exterior of your grill with a sponge and gentle cleaner. Depending on the type of grill you own, clean out the drip pans (gas grills) or completely remove any charcoal or ashy residue.
