How To Get Your Home Ready For Summer

We’ve all been ready for Summer since February. Now it’s time to get your home ready. Get your home prepared for the warmer weather and summer decorating. Here are some things you can do so your home can be ready for summer.

Check the air conditioner

While you probably haven’t used it since September, it’s important to make sure your air conditioner is in working order for those extremely hot summer days. On a warmer day, run the air conditioner and make sure you feel cool air blowing out of your vents. If you need an air conditioner repair, call a local air conditioning expert to make sure it’s fixed before the warm weather sets in. If you don’t have an air conditioner, it never hurts to look into installing one.

Update the deck

If you have a deck or patio, it’s probably one of your favorite places to soak up the sun on summer days and host parties at night. Your deck could probably use a new coat of stain after being exposed to the elements all winter long. Hose¬†down or power wash your walkways and make sure to clean up your furniture. You could even freshen up your patio decor for the summer by painting your furniture a bright color, adding flower pots, adding bright throw pillows, or hanging up string lights.

Fix the windows

You’re more than likely to have the windows open at some point during the summer. Make sure your window locks are working and your screens are free of holes. Wash the windows using a window cleaner or a mixture of vinegar, ammonia, and water. This will allow the sun the shine even more throughout your home.

Clean up your landscaping

It’s time to get on your hands and knees and clean up any weeds that may have invaded your lawn and flower beds. Replant and dead grass and give your lawn a good trim. Plant new flowers, update your landscaping wood chips or rocks and trim your hedges to make your home have a more clean look.

Get your grill ready

Your summer barbecues may be put on hold if your grill isn’t up to par. Heat up your grill for 5-10 minutes and use a grill brush or scraper to scrape off any gunk. Disconnect the grill and let it cool and soak the grates and burners in warm soapy water. Check your propane for a gas grill to make sure you have enough.
