So you’ve done your Spring cleaning this year, but home maintenance is a year-round duty. Check out these tasks for smooth sailing around your home this Summer.
- Ceiling Fan Directions
Ceiling fans have directional switches to help you get the most benefit based on the season. During the hot months, a ceiling fan should rotate counterclockwise pulling the warm air up while during the cooler months a ceiling fan should rotate clockwise.
- Replace AC filters
Air conditioning filters should be replaced every season. Notice your house isnt keeping as cool as it should, replace the AC filters for efficiency.
- Clean Rugs
Summer is a great season to air out those home rugs! If you plan on washing them, the sun is a fast way to dry and deotorize them.
- Inspect Sprinkler System for Leaks
Make sure the heads and hoses are free from damage. A leaky sprinkler system could result in a hefty water bill and dead plants!
- Install Window Screens
If you didn’t do this during Spring, installing them now can prevent you from using your AC as much and fill your home with a nice Summer breeze.
- Inspect Your Deck or Patio
Inspect your deck or patio for loose boards or protruding nails. After you powerwash this season be sure to do these easily forgotten tasks!
- Inspect Garden
After weeding your beloved garden, be sure to check for invasive insects! Especially your vegetables.
