Here we are, in the middle of July, trying to survive this extreme heat in Baltimore. But, what was the last time you did a summer home maintenance to-do list? Summer is a great time to focus on the exterior of your home such as gutters, roof leaking, windows, garage and etc. Although it is very hot working at outside, once you get through our today's checklist, you will have some gratitude from yourself for doing this to-do list. Without wasting any of your time, let's get into it!
- Clean Garage:
Cleaning the garage should be a summer ritual for every man. Keeping it clean and tidy will extend its life, and it often gets neglected of regular care. With all the extra dust it gets from the manly projects you’re working on, you should actually clean it even more.
- Clean Your Dryer Vent:
The accumulation of lint in the vent and hose causes 15,000 fires every year! Remove the dryer hose/vent from the dryer and clean the inside thoroughly with a special brush or vacuum. Also, make sure to clean the lint filter every time you dry a load of clothes.
- Power Wash Deck/Siding/Driveway:
By power washing your deck, siding, driveway, and other exterior areas around your home, you can quickly and effectively remove built-up dirt, sediment, and other debris. This not only helps the areas look beautiful, but it can also reduce wear and tear by getting rid of mold, algae, chalk, insects, weeds, and more.
- Clean Gutters:
Gutter cleaning is one of the services that you need to have on your schedule to clean it regularly. Otherwise, it could cost you more problems and unnecessary expenses for your house. Get them cleared out before the leaves fall again in a few months.
- Inspect Your deck:
Your deck may need re-staining. Do not forget to check for any loose/rotted boards and posts. Make sure to get a professional take a look at it for any repairs or replacements, if you do not have any experience with deck repairs.
