It’s Summer Time – Prepare Your Home for the Heat!

Posted

Temperatures are steadily rising and BBQs are all around! Summer officially begins this Monday, June 20th! This weekend is an excellent opportunity to take a look around your home and make sure it is ready for the coming months of Texas heat! Below are a few quick suggestions:

  • Clean the Gutters – With all the rain from the past couple of months, the gutters have seen a lot of activity! Take this opportunity to look for and breaks or leaks in the gutters.
  • Clean the Air Conditioning Condenser – After turning off the power, clear out an leaves or debris that are in and around the unit and coils.
  • Clean the Walk Way – Take a look at your front walk way from the street. Are there any bricks leaning into the sidewalk? Could it use a power – washing?
  • Prepare the Windows and Doors – Check for any gaps that allow air flow through them. WD-40 is a quick fix for hinges that are rough or squeak.
  • Check the Fence – Look for loose boards, exposed nails, or holes. Make sure to really inspect the bottom areas, to make sure all your loved animals cannot escape.
