Summer Home Maintenance Checklist
Time flies when you’re a homeowner! In this article, I’ve compiled an important summer home maintenance checklist to keep your home in tip-top shape. Most of these items can be done on your own, but if you’d like to delegate to a handyman and need a recommendation, please reach out to me anytime. Let’s get started:
1) Check detectors, including smoke and carbon monoxide detectors to make sure they’re working correctly. It’s also a great time to replace the batteries.
2) Have the HVAC system serviced by a qualified heating and cooling specialist.
3) Check exterior faucets and hoses for leaks.
4) Wash windows and window screens.
5) Seal any concrete cracks in your driveway or sidewalk.
6) Touch-up exterior paint as necessary.
7) Check trees on your property and trim back as necessary.
8) Check roof for any missing shingles.
Most of these items can be completed quickly and efficiently, and performing regular home maintenance can save thousands of dollars and lots of headaches down the road -- this goes for any rental properties you may own, too!
I hope this summer home maintenance checklist has been helpful! If you have questions or if I can be of service, please know that I’m here for you.
