Warmer weather means you, your family, and guests may want to get outside and enjoy the sunshine.
You’ll want to make both the inside and outside of your home feel like summer.
Prepare for Summer Storms
Just because the weather is heating up, doesn’t mean you can forget about the unexpected summer storms that could roll in.
Weather in the 90s or even triple digits can still be accompanied by the common thunderstorms and may occasionally turn into a rare tornado.
Preparing your property includes having a proper drainage solution. Drainage solutions can help prevent puddling on your lawn, making it more enjoyable to spend time outside during the summer.
Complete the Summer Maintenance Checklist
When summer rolls around, there are many things that you may need to do that may be specific to your property.
Creating a list to complete every year may help ensure that you are ready for any summer parties and barbecues.
Some things to consider include:
Inspecting the exterior of your home for any rotting
Checking surrounding property for signs of erosion
Inspecting any outdoor furniture or play equipment
Fixing or reinforcing any damaged fencing on your property line
Complete pool maintenance
Clean grills or outdoor kitchen areas
Adjust your irrigation systems schedule
Check sprinklers for any leaks
Clean your gutters
Get your lawn ready
Look for any leaks throughout the property
Inspect your deck and clean your porch
Inspect the roof
Preventative pest control
Prepare and stock the storm shelter
Don’t Forget About Inside
You should also prepare the inside of your home for summer. Sometimes that means decorating or bringing summer inside with flowers from the garden.
Consider adding these inside items to your checklist:
Have AC checked, repaired or serviced
Clean windows inside and out
Clean out the dryer vent
Make up the guest rooms for any visitors
Check smoke detectors
Pull back curtains or open blinds to let the sun in
Clean the Pool
Your pool may be one of the most used spots on your property during the summer. Keeping it clean is important to its plumbing system and the health of those swimming in it.
If it was covered up for the winter and even for parts of spring, it may need a quick cleaning before it can be used.
During the summer, your pool collects leaves, pollen, and other debris that will be filtered out by your pool filter.
Once a week, consider turning the pool filter off and cleaning out all the particles it has collected, this will help it work efficiently all summer long.
Check Patio Furniture
Whether the patio furniture has sat out all winter and spring or is tucked away in storage, it is time to get it ready for the warm weather.
It may be tanning, or just visiting when guests come around, but either way, the chairs, tables, umbrellas, and more will get a lot of use when the weather permits.
Consider spraying them down with water or even refinishing them to give them a fresh look and help bring your property to life.
Preparing Summer Tools
You’ll want to keep your property pretty during summer to make a good first impression on any guests.
This means getting out the lawnmower and making sure it’s ready to complete the work.
It may also include getting out the smaller tools such as shovels, hoes, rakes, and garden tools.
