Summer Cleaning Tips

While the weather is amazing outside, take a few moments to check off some homeowner tasks.

  • Change your Air Conditioning Filter
  • Check the Air Conditioners drain for clogs
  • Make sure your AC doesn’t have any plants growing close to it.
  • Vacuum the coils behind your Fridge
    • If you have a wood or vinyl floor, use a sheet of plywood when you roll your fridge out. That way you don’t mark up your floor.
  • Clean your bathroom fan.
  • Clean your ceiling fans.
  • Verify your dryer vent is clean and clear.
  • Replace your washing machine hoses every five years to prevent them from failing.
  • Clean your smoke detectors of small insects.
  • Repair the cracks in your driveway
  • Make sure your irrigation system hits the correct areas on your lawn.
    • Try running the irrigation system in the morning hours to get the best results
  • Make sure your Pool gate closes and latches.
  • Check your screens for damage.
    • New screens allow for more light to pass thru than the older models.
  • Power wash your house and deck – checking for loose connections on your decking.
  • Clean your gutters.
  • Check your chimney for damage.


Prior to going on vacation:

  • Stop your newspaper delivery
