Even if the words home maintenance don’t light a fire in your belly, the love of your property should. Make your house the star of every family BBQ with this simple summer home maintenance services checklist.

Deep Clean the Carpets

People who suffer from allergies suffer the most during the summer. Allergens get easily trapped in your rugs, carpets, and upholstery making them the prime suspects for the sneezing. Foot traffic affects how much you need to clean your carpet. The average is to get the carpets deeply cleaned every six to twelve months. 

Frequent vacuuming will help to maintain the freshness of your house for a longer time. However, for optimum results the recommendation is to hire a cleaning specialist once a year.

Home Maintenance Services; BBQ Cleaning

The first home maintenance service you have to do before firing up the grill and inviting people over is to clean it up. For food safety and to ensure nothing happens to your guests, a deep clean is needed. If your grill has any mechanical issues call a professional to take a look at it. Aside from that, you can make it brand new by yourself. 

For charcoal grills, make sure that it is empty and wipe away any dust or residue. Get a scrub brush, some hot water, and dish soap and start cleaning the inside and outside of the grill. Be sure to let it dry before using it.

For gas grills, close the lid and turn the heat on high and leave it for about half an hour. Let the grill cool and give it a good scrub with a grill brush. Wipe clean the outside with a cleaner and sponge. Lastly, clean out all the drip trays.

Home Maintenance Service; Deck Check

When you think of summer it’s all about the gatherings in the fresh air. Before starting all the fun, the deck must be inspected. This will make you see if there are any boards that are rotting so you can get them replaced. Another thing to look at is the seal. If you notice bubbling and cracks, it’s time to reseal your porch. 

After making sure everything is good to go, the only thing left to do is to power wash it all. Wash your deck and porch for a fresh new look to have the perfect space for summer. Hiring a professional will make this home maintenance service a task that you don’t have to put much thought into.

Don’t give the burglars any chance to get into your home and keep your family safe. As this is not the most fun topic to talk about, it is essential to shed some light on it. Get an expert to come and install an alarm system for your house. If you already have one, make sure it is working perfectly for your home to be fully protected. 

Deep Clean your Fridge

Do you have unidentified leftovers in tupperware in the back of your fridge that you just can’t seem to clean? Well this is your sign to start tackling the whole fridge. Keep it running smoothly by giving it a little TLC. 

Use a coil brush to clean the refrigerator’s condenser coils. These coils accumulate a lot of dirt, pet hair, and food remnants. Dirty coils lead to the fridge to work harder to cool which will result in expensive repairs. Then use a mild cleanser to clean the entire interior to remove anything that might be stuck to it. Find a specialist to do any necessary repairs.

Pool Home Maintenance Service

The pool is one of the most used spots during summertime. Therefore, before sending out any pool party invitations for (well… yourself because the pandemic is not over) the swimming pool should be checked out. It must be inspected for leaks and that the heaters and pumps are operating normally. 

Let the love for your house fuel your motivation to complete these home maintenance services. While the tasks may seem dreary and exhausting, it’s important to keep your house looking its best. Call an expert for the different jobs before it gets too hot to handle. Grab yourself an iced tea and enjoy your summer!
