Summer Home Care Tips

While summertime offers us a great opportunity to make the most of our sunny Saturdays, you might find yourself with some extra free time.  What to do?  Why not take a little time each weekend to give your beautiful new home a little extra care?  One of the best things about owning a home is the pride and satisfaction derived from making it look as beautiful as possible!


Keep it green: Harsh summer heat can up the ante when it comes to caring for your lawn.  Make sure to keep it watered and fertilized!

Fire it up: Get a head start for the upcoming winter and clean out your wood-burning fireplace and chimney.  You'll have one less winter task to attend to!

Carpet care: Now's the perfect time to have your carpets professionally cleaned, which will protect your carpet and make it last even longer.  Want to save a few bucks?  Rent a quality carpet cleaner and do it yourself!

Touch-ups: Inspect your home-inside and out-and touch up any paint where necessary.  This can be done quickly and easily, and will prevent future peeling!

Lock and key: Check all of the locks on your windows and doors and ensure that everything is working properly.  Being proactive about safety is always a smart move!

Oil it: Anything squeaking?  Add a squirt of WD-40 or similar product to door, cabinet and window hinges to keep them in top repair.

Park the car: If your garage is filling up with an abundance of stored items, take a day to reorganize and get rid of unwanted clutter.  Give your unneeded items to charity, or have a fun summer yard sale!
