We know what you’re thinking. “Summer home maintenance in San Diego? It’s summer year-round!” Almost true… but that doesn’t mean you should ignore seasonal maintenance on your home.
“Fine, but I already did my spring cleaning…” While everything may look like it’s in tip-top shape, routine maintenance helps keep bigger repairs at bay. And the change of temperature is a great reminder that it’s time to break out that checklist. Here we go!
Before you decide to tackle your house, you should have a plan of attack. You can prioritize this by spaces that you most spend your time in, or wish to spend your time in. Maybe your side yard is looking a little dusty but it’s your only outdoor space? Clean it up for that oh so satisfying feeling.
Vents and Hoses
When was the last time you took a look at your washer hoses and dryer vents? Exactly! There are multiple benefits here. Not only does this help your machines run more efficiently, but you’ll also be actively taking steps to prevent fire. A win-win, really!
Your Garage Door
With many of our businesses shuttered, everyone’s been turning to the great outdoors. That’s a lot of opening and closing of your garage door to grab your bike! Like any mechanical item, garage doors need to be oiled on its chain and door hinges. If you decide to do this one yourself, remember safety first and to fully read your manual for the right maintenance.
This is an easy one to miss since it’s often out of view. But if you haven’t used those ceiling fans since the last heatwave, they’ve probably been sitting their collecting dust. Who wants to breathe all those particles in? You gotta keep those lungs as strong as possible. And while you’re at it, go ahead and dust those other hard to reach spots.
