Summer is a time for relaxing and enjoying the wonderful weather that the East Coast affords us. The last thing we want to worry about halfway through the warmer months is making sure our home is in summer shape. Want to be ahead of the curve? Check out these tips!
Clean Gutters and Drains
Over the fall and winter, your gutters and drains may have become filled with leaves, dirt, and debris. Taking the time to clean it out now ensures that your drains and gutters won’t back up and cause damage to your roof and shingles.
Central Heating Maintenance
Your mini-split kept your family warm and cozy all winter. Before you ask it to keep you cool all summer, call in the experts and have it checked over. Regular maintenance will extend the life of your mini-split meaning it will work for you and yours for years to come!
If you have a chimney and were using your wood stove throughout the winter, it’s likely filled with soot and other particles. Bring in a professional chimney cleaner and help lower the risk of a chimney fire.
Inspect Your Yard
Check your yard and lawn for any damage done to trees and shrubs over the winter. It may pay to have an arborist or landscaping service come in to help you decide what to save and what might need to be removed.
Check Your Deck
Springtime is a great time to check your deck or patio for any damage or weak points. Getting this done and fixed now means more time to enjoy it later!
Getting your home ready for summer might seem like a hassle right now, but it will more than pay for itself once the nice weather rolls around!
