Now that summer is here, it’s a great time to take advantage of the warmer weather and ensure your home is in optimal shape. A little TLC goes a long way to prevent future maintenance problems which can end up being costly. To help keep your property in tip-top shape, take a look at these top tasks to tackle this season.
Take Care of Your Property This Summer
Replace the air filters in your home. The heating and air conditioning system in your home works by taking in air from the room, which is then heated or cooled by coils and gets blown back into your home through the floor vents. To help keep the air quality clean in your home, replace the air filters of your HVAC unit regularly.
Inspect the roof. Get into the habit of checking your home’s roof and gutters every season. During the summer, you should check the roof for any damages that may have occurred in spring storms. If you do notice any issues, make sure you get them repaired before the adverse fall weather arrives.
Test smoke alarms, carbon monoxide detectors, and fire extinguishers. These alarms and systems help to keep your property and family safe. With the rise in summer barbecues, it’s well worth being mindful of fire risks and ensuring all fire alarms and extinguishers are in good working order.
Giving your home the maintenance attention it needs is an important summer activity to ensure the longevity of your property.
