I would bet money that you have been hearing people say that summer is just around the corner. (It’s so amazing how time flies.) But those people are right! Summer is closer than we think. With summer come a lot of different changes in our lives. Some of which, we don’t always think about. So, we are so glad that you are here… Check out these helpful tips that will help you prep your home for the quick arrival of summer!
- Make sure you’re a/c works. I know, seems like something so silly. However, after using the heat all winter long, you would have no idea if the a/c doesn’t work anymore. It’s simple… on a warm day, turn it on and test it. If it kicks on and all seems well, you are good. If the temperature doesn’t change to whatever you set it on, it might be best to call someone and get your unit serviced before the warmer temps arrive.
- Clean your windows. I know, no one wants to do it. We all did that right before winter came, so it feels like it shouldn’t already be time again. But it is… just do it. I promise, the sooner you clean your windows, the sooner you can open them and enjoy the summertime warmth.
- Get your summertime tools prepped. What does this even mean? Well, mostly make sure your lawnmower works! With the warmer weather, and the sun coming out to stay for months to come, your grass is sure to grow, so it’s important to make sure your tools will be ready when you need them. This also applies to any gardening tools you might use. Do they need to be serviced? Is there something that you need to fix before putting your garden in this year? These are just some things to think about before summer comes.
- Clean out your gutters. This one is more important for the spring season… but rain is sure to come, and you don’t want clogged cutters!
These tips are for preventative measures! If you think ahead and prep for summertime, when it arrives, you will be ready and won’t waste the beautiful days working on what you could have done.
