Summer Home Maintenance Checklist

Written by Casey Shearns on . Posted in , .

Keeping your home in good health is a task that should be consistent all year long. The odd thing about home maintenance is it tends to change with the seasons. Different climates bring about different needs and problems to address. When it comes to the summer season, this is no different! In order to prevent costly water and fire damage to your home this summer, there are a few things you should do throughout the season. We show you how to keep your home healthy this summer below!

Check Windows and Doors

Spring is most known for being the season of rainy weather, but the summer months have the potential to bring about something far worse – hurricanes and tropical storms! You need to make sure that your windows and doors are ready to withstand these conditions. Before summer officially begins, take some time to check your windows, screens, and doors. Ensure that they close properly and that there aren’t any cracks within the seals. If you neglect this, you could be letting in water damage!

Replace Filters and Clean Grills

When did you last check your furnace, AC unit, and grills? The first two things on this list require air filters to work properly. If these aren’t changed regularly, dust and other debris build up inside of them. If you let too much build up, it could lead to the appliance failing – and, in worse cases, fire damage resulting from said failures! Replacing your filters and cleaning your outdoor grills regularly are the safest ways to ensure this problem doesn’t occur.

Clean Your Gutters

The spring months brought about a lot of rain, but there’s another nuisance that it brought with it as well. Random debris like leaves, branches, and dirt has the potential to clog your home’s gutter system, compromising its integrity and allowing water to pool on your roof. With a lot more inclement weather on the way during the summer, you don’t want to leave this to chance! Take some time to clean your gutters at multiple points during the season. If you don’t want to do the maintenance work, gutter guards are a helpful way around it.

All I have to say is WOW and FANTASTIC. I just got done building out my new professional office with Soil-Away’s construction division and they went ABOVE and BEYOND. Scott and Mike, the carpenters are skilled artisans. The project got done on time and the project came in on budget! The finished results have been blowing people away. Much better than I could have anticipated. Anyone is welcome to come to our office, Bright Light Chiropractic in Hooksett to check out the fine work they did. Simply can’t sing enough praises for them. Sorry that the picture doesn’t do the job justice. Thank you Jack and your team. -Dr. Jay

Since day one, I’ve known the owner, Jack, to be a hard-working and selfless leader. Through the efforts of him and his team, he was able to restore my flooded restaurant to tip-top shape. I was amazed with Jack’s orderliness throughout the entire process. Jack has proven to me that he is trustworthy, as both a friend and an individual in the work environment.

Highly recommend Soil-Away. A pipe in our upstairs bathroom gave and sent water down through a wall for at least a day before we noticed water dripping through our kitchen ceiling. Our insurance put us in touch with Soil-Away and they were at our house the next morning to assess the damage and dry things out. Joe, Ray and Tom were phenomenal to work with. They explained every part of the process to us and were very professional and friendly. If you have to deal with similar issues call Soil-Away, you won’t regret it.
