Staying on top of home maintenance is very important, especially if you plan on selling.
Today I’d like to go over six key maintenance tips that are specific to the summer months. Following these tips will make sure your home stays safe and in great shape.
Check your smoke detectors and change their batteries. Keeping your smoke detectors in working order is crucial, so be sure to test and replace their batteries regularly. If you don’t want to be woken up in the middle of the night by a dying alarm, or find yourself faced with a far more serious situation, you must stay on top of this critical maintenance task.
Have your air conditioning inspected. Our A/C units are most active during the summer, so this time of year is an especially important time for these systems to be functioning at maximum efficiency.
Get your grill serviced. Our climate tends to cause grills to rust, so having your grill serviced can be a worthwhile investment.
Maintain your windows. Checking for wood rot, cleaning your screens, and wiping down the glass are all important maintenance tasks.
Make any necessary repairs to your deck. Things like changing out loose boards, replacing screws, and adding a new finish will keep your deck safe and looking great.
Check your faucets. With as much water as people use in the summer months, it’s essential for homeowners to keep their propertys’ faucets and plumbing in working order.
If you have any other questions or would like more information, feel free to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
