As we migrate from spring and into summer, there are a few housekeeping items you can do that will ensure a smooth transition in and around your home.
Transform Your Car
If you have a car and especially if you use it daily, you’d be surprised how much dust and other debris can accumulate over time. Having a clean car and even just the process of vacuuming it yourself, can make you feel like a whole new driver.
Have a Garage Sale
Garage sales promote major home cleansing and purging a lot of unnecessary items, all of which can make a home feel more comfortable and welcoming. Garage sales are also a wonderful way to meet or reconnect with neighbours.
Checking that carbon monoxide and smoke detectors are functioning at a high level is typically a home task that’s easy to forget. A good rule to follow is checking them whenever the seasons change.
Air Conditioner Maintenance
Air conditioner maintenance is a proactive step towards a more enjoyable summer. Taking care of your unit can yield pleasant surprises like a lower energy bill. For more information, read our articles on why now is the time to consider air conditioner maintenance and what happens if you don’t keep up with air conditioner maintenance.
Air Filter Replacement
Changing your air filter is a quick way to ensure you’re getting the most out of your air conditioning unit. Reliance has several articles on choosing the right air filter as well as understanding MERV ratings.
Acquire New Porch Accessories
Things like citronella candles to ward off mosquitos or a hammock to doze on can make the outdoors more exciting and inviting.
Stay on Top of Your Yardwork
As it warms up, it’s a pleasant time to tackle those pesky weeds, rake any leaves that have accumulated and plant any seeds or plants that you’d like to blossom.
Cleaning out your gutters helps prevent your roof from leaking. Clean gutters also reduce the likelihood of standing water around your home, which can damage to the foundation. If you’re unsure how to clean your eaves trough, we have a helpful article explaining the process.
