Summer is officially here! Do these things to get your home ready for the new season.
Today marks the first official day of the warmest – and arguably most fun – season of the year. Now that summer is at our door, it’s time to welcome it in! These to-dos will help you prep your home for a great season ahead.
Plant some flowers. Bring color and beauty to your yard by planting fresh blooms in your yard. Add a couple of planters by the front door to up your curb appeal, and touch up the flowerbeds in your backyard. Lay fresh mulch, too.
Clean the gutters. This isn’t the most rewarding task, but it needs to be done before summer showers come!
Wash your patio furniture. After months of disuse, your patio furniture is probably looking a little tired. Hose it all off, and wash your outdoor fabrics according to the manufacturer’s instructions (most can be washed in your machine on warm).
Prep your grill. Get ready for the coming summer barbecues by scrubbing down your grill. Heat it up for 10 minutes before you start tackling the built-up gunk and it will come off more easily. Just make sure you disconnect it from the gas and let it cool before you get to it!
Clean your windows. Let the beautiful summer sun stream in through streak-free glass by wiping down your windows.
Hose off your deck/patio. Summer means no shoes! You can stroll around your yard without tracking a bunch of dirt inside by hosing off your patio, deck, and/or walkways.
