A Checklist of Things to Do For Your Home This Summer

Shape up Your Home this Summer!

Ah, summertime — one of the most anticipated seasons by many homeowners across the nation. And while summer this year may be a tad different from the rest, it doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy it to the fullest!

However, before you head to the backyard and kick up your feet, here are a few homeowner “to-do” tasks to help your humble abode thrive this season (and the rest to follow)!

Things to Add to Your Homeowner To-Do List

Schedule a Central Air Conditioner Tune-Up Appointment

If your home has forgone the days of window-based air conditioners and you have a central cooling system installed, you’ll want to make sure that it’s running up to par. Sure, while it may sound as if it’s performing correctly and keeping your humble abode cool, there’s a chance that, behind the scenes, it could use some TLC from a licensed HVAC technician.

Many times during a tune-up appointment, a technician will conduct a full inspection of your central air conditioner from top-to-bottom. If the HVAC professional runs into any potential problems, they’ll be able to catch them in the nick of time and repair them — that way, you’re not faced with a more significant issue down the road.

Have Plumbing Repairs Made

Do you have a leaky faucet in your house? Regardless of the size, it’s essential to have that taken care of right away. According to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), ten percent of homes have a leak that can waste up to 90 gallons of water (or more) a day. To cease the waste of water in your humble abode, and to lower your water bill, a plumbing repair can help.

When a licensed plumber comes into your home, they’ll assess the problem and provide you with the perfect solution to repair it. Of course, if they believe that it may be beneficial to replace the sink fixture altogether, they’ll consult with you first before making a move. Then, once your plumbing fixture is repaired or replaced, you’ll be lessening water waste in your home — which is a massive win to any homeowner.

Give Your Home a Deep Clean

On average, how often do you give your home a deep clean? If it’s long overdue, summer is the perfect time to get this task done. Not only will this will make your humble abode sparkle and shine, but it will also help reduce the number of indoor allergens that may be trapped inside your living space.

Consider mopping the floors, washing bedding and curtains throughout your home, and even think about sanitizing the inside of your appliances — such as your refrigerator, washing machine, and dishwasher — with natural cleaning products.

Downsize Your Belongings

Do you feel as if you’re swimming among your belongings these days? If so, you may want to consider downsizing. This will free up some much-needed space in your humble abode, but it will also help cut back on the dust count — since there will be less you’ll have to wipe down and clean every few weeks.

Additionally, if you’re looking to move within the near future, downsizing and prioritizing the belongings in your home will help you out greatly once moving day arrives; you won’t have to pack as much!
