Summer Checklist

Run through this quick and helpful checklist to be sure you're ready for the change in seasons, and be sure to check back in the Fall!

Check your air conditioning system to ensure it's running efficiently. Clean or replace filters as needed, and consider having the system serviced by a professional if you haven't done so recently.

Inspect screens for holes or tears that can let insects in. Repair or replace damaged screens to enjoy the summer breezes without worrying about pests.

Inspect your home's exterior paint and siding for signs of wear, such as peeling or chipping paint, or damaged siding. Repair as necessary to protect your home from weather damage and maintain its appearance.

Check trees for dead limbs that might fall and cause damage during summer storms. Also, consider whether any trees are close to power lines and need to be trimmed. Take care of routine landscaping maintenance, such as mowing, edging, and weeding.

Summer often leads to increased pest activity. Conduct a thorough inspection of your home for signs of pests, such as droppings, nests, or damage. Consider hiring a professional pest control service if needed.
