SUMMER HOME MAINTENANCE – REGULAR MAINTENANCE IS THE KEY

Inspecting your home on a regular basis and following good maintenance practices are the best way to protect your investment in your home. Whether you take care of a few tasks at a time or several all at once, it is important to get into the habit of doing them. Establish a routine for yourself, and you will find the work is easy to accomplish and not very time-consuming. A regular schedule of seasonal maintenance can put a stop to the most common — and costly — problems, before they occur. If necessary, use a camera to take pictures of anything you might want to share with an expert for advice or to monitor or remind you of a situation later.

By following the information noted here, you will learn about protecting your investment and how to help keep your home a safe and healthy place to live.

Below is a checklist from PINNACLE GROUP to keep projects organized and on schedule.

Clean your outdoor cooker – Make sure to get ready for all of those upcoming BBQs you will be having in the summer months by deep cleaning your grill.
To clean a gas grill: Turn up the heat to high with the lid closed for about 30 minutes. Once the grill has cooled down, use a grill brush to clean the grill.
To clean a charcoal grill: Empty the grill completely, cleaning off any leftover ashy residue with dish soap and warm water. Allow enough time for the grill to dry before you use it next.

Plan a watering schedule – Planning a watering schedule will ensure that your plants will stay healthy and hydrated during the hot summer months.

Trim tree limbs touching or near roof surface – Summer months can mean stormy weather. By performing regular tree maintenance you can reduce the risk of storm damage.

Vacuum upholstery and pillows – After getting the patio furniture out of storage, vacuum the upholstery to remove dirt and dust.

Clean out rain gutters and storm drains – Removing debris from gutters and storm drains can prevent clogging during storms.

Change out the HVAC filter – Put in a fresh filter at the start of the season to prevent indoor air pollution.

Clean and repair windows – Since the temperatures are up, this is a great time to get out and clean your windows. Remove the screens for the windows. Brush off dust with a rag or clean, dry paintbrush. Then, gently scrub each screen with a soft-bristle brush and warm, soapy water. Rinse the screens with the hose. Check for rips and tears in the screens. Many can be mended with a needle and thread. Replace the entire screen for those that cannot be easily mended.

Have your roof inspected – Have your roof inspected for leaks every 3-4 years or more often as it ages. From the ground, check the general condition of the roof and note any sagging that could indicate structural problems requiring further investigation from inside the attic. Note the condition of shingles for possible repair or replacement, and examine roof flashings, such as at chimney and roof joints, for any signs of cracking or leakage

Clean out dryer vents – This is the perfect time to check your dryer vents to prevent build up.

Examine the outside of your home – Trim trees and shrubs that may be touching the siding or brick, windows or trim. Experts recommend maintaining a distance of at least two feet between the home and plants to keep damaging insects and moisture away from the home. You may even consider power washing the exterior of your home to remove dust, mud, mildew and debris. If you find cracking, peeling or blistering paint, move quickly to repaint yourself or schedule a new paint job.

Summer is quickly approaching so take some time to prepare your home for the rising temperatures ahead.
