hardwood-flooringMaintenance of you home has to be done year round, but every task is not suitable for each season. From deep cleaning to basic upkeep of the most essential elements in any house, there are always some important tasks for homeowners to accomplish. Here are few simple tips to keep your home in great shape during the summer season:

Maintenance of Floor

Keep your flooring clean and dry during the summer months. As you spend most of time in the pool on hot days, that means wet feet on the floors. Dry any wet spots right away from the floor. Always Clean your floors frequently and vacuum up dust to keep them looking good.

Clean gutters

Make sure that your gutters are in great shape and ready for the fall and winter. You’ll have to climb up on a ladder to do a proper visual inspection, so be sure to choose a sunny day with clear skies. Remove any debris that may be clogging up the gutters and make any necessary repairs. Once the leaves start to come off of the trees in the fall, you’ll know that your gutters are clear.

HVAC

Before you start running your home’s air conditioner, you’ll want to do a tune up to ensure that your HVAC system is in good shape. Change out the filter for cleaner indoor air and a more efficient system. If your AC isn’t running as cold as it should, you may want to contact a professional who can perform a thorough check.

A little work can go a long way to ensuring that your home stays clean, attractive, and in good working order throughout the summer season.
