Summer Checklist: What Parts of Your Home Need Maintenance Right Now?
Each season brings about new home maintenance needs. There are just some home maintenance projects that are better done in summer than in winter. But the projects you need to tackle this summer will largely depend on your home and what you might be missing. Here are a few things you might consider ticking off your summer maintenance checklist this year:
Inspect Your Air Conditioner
Good, functional air conditioner is essential during summer. Before you need to turn on your air conditioning for the year, it’s a good idea to make sure everything’s still in working order. It’s a great time to clean or replace air filters, and clean any ceiling fans or window units before turning them on. If your air conditioning is already turned on but isn’t offering enough cooling, look for freezing in the coils or clogs of pet dander.
Clean Your Windows
You want to let in as much light as possible to fully enjoy the summer, especially this summer when many of us are stuck at home. That’s why summer is the best time of year to clean your windows by wiping down the interior and exterior glass with gentle, non-abrasive cleaning solutions. Wipe down the frames, as well, and maybe add a potted plant to the windowsill for extra character.
List What Needs to Be Remodeled
Summer is an excellent time of year for interior remodeling, with lighting streaming through the windows longer and beautiful weather if you choose to get out of the house. Take some time to go through your home and list what needs to be remodeled. Does your kitchen need updating? Is your bathroom in need of extra comforts? Do you need more space? Write down your remodeling priorities and then contact a home remodeling company to get the work done.
