Summer home maintenance checklist

by Mary Jean Agostini
Summer is filled with months of great weather, longer days... the perfect season to do some maintenance inside and out!
 
1. Give your home an energy audit- Hire professionally or perform by yourself. Look for gaps within your door or window frame to keep cool air in and warm air out!
 
2.  Clean and repair asphalt- Time to repair those unsightly cracks and remove any oil stains. DIY with oven cleaner, apply generously, let sit for 25-30 minutes and scrub with a stiff brush.
 
3. Prune or remove any problem trees- Inspect trees for rot or damage and remove for safety concerns. Remove any branches that may be against or over your home.
 
4. Repel deer and pests- Deer can reek havoc in your garden and other plants around the yard. Make a homemade repellent, or install a bird net or miniature fence.
 
5. Clean vents- Clean the inside of the cover and the fan blade with a slightly damp cloth or spray cleaner and a paper towel. Dry and reassemble. Do this twice a year to prevent moisture and mold growth.
 
6. Mend your fence- Replace any rotted panels or posts, clean/sand and give a fresh coat of paint. Even vinyl fencing needs maintenance, power-wash to make it look new!
 
7. Potted plants- Although visually pleasing, some planters may leave a stain on concrete. Prevent by using "feet" or stands found at any garden center.
 
8. Clean patio furniture- Use a rag and soft-bristle brush to remove embedded dirt on synthetic coverings, metal and wood furniture. Spray wicker furniture with water and protect it with paste wax.
 
9. Stain and protect your deck- Stain your deck at least once a year to maintain protection and color. Homeowners with TREX deck should power wash to remove any debris or algae.
 
10. Clean your AC- The payoff: Summertime comfort and lower cooling bills. You'll also prolong the life of your air conditioner.
