Home Maintenance Tasks for Summer

Here are some of the tasks that you should take care of around your home this summer.

Part of being a good homeowner is making sure that your home is well-cared for. One of the best ways to keep your home in good condition is by staying on top of routine home maintenance tasks. But which tasks should you take care of this summer? Here are the things you should do around your home.

Cleaning Tasks

While no one wants to spend a beautiful summer’s day cleaning, keeping up with regular cleaning tasks will ensure that you clear away risks (fire risks, tripping risks, etc.) and catch any issues (bug infestation, water leaks, etc.) before they become serious. You should take care of tasks such as vacuuming, mopping, dusting, cleaning your kitchen, and cleaning your bathrooms on a weekly basis. Other tasks, such as laundry and dishes, may need to be addressed more frequently.

Roof Inspection

You should check your home’s roof and gutters every season. During the summer, you should check your roof for any damages that rainy spring weather might have caused. If you do notice any issues, make sure you get them repaired before the more variable weather conditions of autumn set in. While you’re up on your roof, you should also take the opportunity to clear out any debris that might have settled in your gutters. This will prevent them from getting clogged and overflowing during a summer storm.

HVAC Servicing

Many homeowners can’t imagine surviving summer without the aid of their air conditioner. This is why you should get your home’s HVAC system professionally checked and serviced this summer. Once you are assured of your system’s condition, you should take steps to maintain it. Changing out your air filters and cleaning the areas around your outdoor air conditioning unit will ensure that you stay cool all summer long.
