As Summer is approaching, the days get longer, and we begin to spend more time outside. We will give you some tips to prepare both the inside and outside of your home for summer.
Get an air conditioning serviced. Doing this at the start of the summer season can help you avoid repairs later in the summer when the heat is unbearable and you are left without the cool A/C.
Dehumidifier. Tons of humidity can damage the structure of your home. It will help remove additional water from the air helping to protect your home.
Service your chimney. If you have a chimney, summer is the best time to have it professionally maintained. Get a cleaning done annually to avoid any damage that might send dirt or debris into your home.
Manage your trees. Trim any overhanging or dead tree branches before the summer thunderstorms start.
Start pest control. Keep bugs and insects away from your home with tips such as, removing any standing water and fixing any leaky door seals or broken window screens.
Check your outdoor water supply. Check your hoses for any leaks or damage before regular use. This is important for areas that suffer freezing temperatures that could result in frozen, cracked pipes and cost unnecessary money in the winter.
Complete a roof inspection. Climb up on your roof to check for any necessary repairs. While you’re up there, check you gutters.
