Summer Home Maintenance List

Summer Home Maintenance List

The warm months are here and while you’re enjoying some extra hours of daylight, it’s also a great time to catch up on some maintenance tasks that have been neglected during the cooler months.

While your list might vary a little, here is a great summer home maintenance list to get you started tackling some of those much-needed maintenance chores this season.

Yard Maintenance

It’s time to schedule that weekend yard project. Trim trees and shrubs, mow the lawn and plant some flowers. Clear debris from rain gutters and if needed add new mulch and correct drainage issues before the monsoon season arrives.

Touch Up Paint And Stucco

Review the exterior of your home for chipping paint or stucco repairs. Examine the trim as well as areas by the ground for signs of moisture intrusion and repair any area showing wear.

Furnace And HVAC Systems

Have your furnace and air conditioning systems serviced and cleaned.

Clean And Inspect The Chimney

Another common fire and safety concern is the chimney. Order a cleaning and make sure there is a spark arrester which meets current codes.

Check The Roof

Check for evidence of roof leaks and correct any current problem. If you have cracked tiles, get those repaired or replaced before our monsoon season hits. This is also a good time to repair any old water damage in ceilings in the home, garage or attic.

Spend a little time to prepare while the days are long and the weather is mild.
