Simple Home Upkeep Items Not to Miss This Summer

Categories: Tips

The weather is beautiful so we are outside enjoying the longer days and relaxing a little bit by the pool.  After you’ve had a bit of relaxation take a few minutes to do these simple tasks that will help keep your home looking and acting newer.


Replace furnace filter (should be done more than just summer but wanted to keep this simple reminder in front of you)

Clean out your dryer duct, both inside and outside where it vents.  Simply take a vacuum and clean out what you can reach.

Check and replace any weather-stripping around your doors and garage doors that aren’t sealing well.

Inspect your basement for humidity and use a dehumidifier if needed.  More dehumidifiers are needed in basements during the summer than during any other season.

Inspect the outside of your home for cracks in siding, windows, flashing, etc to prevent any water penetration.


Take a couple minutes on a gloomy day to check out these few items to make sure to keep your home looking newer.
