Prepare Your Home for Summer with these Tips
Summer is just around the corner which means it’s time to spruce up your home and get ready for the warm weather. Here are five useful tips to get your home ready for the season.
Check cooling units. Check that your air conditioning units are running properly. To save money have it preset to the temperature and times that you’re home.
Secure your pool. Make sure you have proper safety fencing and gates installed around the perimeter. Check that all latches are in working order and secured.
Fix the sprinklers. Run your sprinkler one zone at a time to see if there are any broken heads or cracked pipes. Replace any bubbling or geyser-like sprinklers with a new head. Also, consider a drip system … much more efficient.
Touch-up the paint. Not only does it protect your house from water damage and mold, but also gives your home a fresh look. Before painting, consider pressure washing the exterior walls of your home to remove, dirt, stains, and mildew that paint can’t hide.
Trees and shrubs. Inspect the trees and shrubs on your property and cut any tree limbs or shrubs that touch your house. Summer winds can cause these to rub on your roof or siding, resulting in damage that could be costly to repair.
