Summer Home Maintenance Tips

Summer Home Maintenance Tips

We all know that during summertime the living is supposed to be easy. However, there are still a few things you should do to make sure your home is running smoothly in super hot weather. Also, these are great tips for those of you getting ready to place your home on the market.

Here is our summer checklist to keep your home looking it’s best in the heat of summer:

Pressure Wash

Rent one or hire someone to give your walkways, patios, deck and driveways a refresh. It’s an inexpensive way to make the house look great for those barbecues when the landscape starts to wilt and brown in the summer. Also, it enhances the curb appeal when trying to sell for those listing their homes.


Summer may not be the time to plant, but a good time to edge, weed, and keep the yard tidy. Make sure to deadhead those spent blooms that can detract from your garden’s beauty. Trim overgrown vines and trees so you can make use of all the outdoor space in your yard.

Spray for bugs

Enjoy your yard pest free! A quick spritz or call to your pest control company can get rid of mosquitos, ticks and fleas. Selling? Consider this so buyers can roam the property without being bothered by pests.

Clean your fans

Check out those ever revolving fan blades. They might be dusty and you don’t want that floating around your house. Use a dusting cloth on a paint roller to reach ceiling fans. Don’t forget about bathroom vent fans that need a good cleaning too. These are important to keep running in hot, humid summers.

Check the A/C

It’s probably best to call in the professionals! Have your filters replaced and give your A/C a tune-up to make sure it runs it’s best when you need it the most.  You will boost the performance of the unit and cut energy bills.

That’s not too bad! These are easily done and you’ll have your feet up relaxing in no time. Listing your home? Let us know of any loan needs for your new home purchase.
