Summer Is Here
Dated: May 1 2023
Now that spring has come and gone, it's time for homeowners to start preparing for the hot summer months ahead. With warmer temperatures and longer days, summer is a great time to enjoy outdoor activities with family and friends. However, it's also important to make sure your home is ready to handle the heat and humidity that comes along with the season. Here are some things that homeowners should do to get their home ready for summer:
Check your air conditioning: The last thing you want is to have your air conditioning fail during a heatwave. Check your AC unit to make sure it's in good working order. If it's been a while since you've had it serviced, now is the time to schedule a tune-up.
Clean your gutters: With summer comes the possibility of heavy rainfalls, so it's important to make sure your gutters are clear of debris. This will help prevent water damage to your home and ensure that your gutters are working properly.
Inspect your deck or patio: Summer is a time for outdoor entertaining, so it's important to make sure your deck or patio is in good condition. Check for any signs of damage, such as rotting wood or loose boards, and make any necessary repairs.
Trim your trees and bushes: Overgrown trees and bushes can be a hazard during a summer storm. Trim back any branches that are close to your home or power lines to prevent damage.
Check for leaks: The hot summer months can cause pipes to expand and contract, which can lead to leaks. Check your pipes for any signs of damage or leaks, and have them repaired as soon as possible.
Protect against pests: Summer is prime time for bugs and other pests. Take steps to protect your home by sealing any cracks or openings, and consider hiring a pest control company to treat your property.
By taking these steps, homeowners can ensure that their home is ready to handle the heat and humidity of the summer months. With a little bit of preparation, you can enjoy all that summer has to offer while staying comfortable and safe in your own home.
