UncategorisedHow to Prepare Your Home for the Summer

Canadians love spending the summer lounging in the backyard, enjoying the outdoor weather, and soaking in the sun. What they don’t love is being stuck outside repairing the home in the hot, humid heat. To avoid spending the better part of the year working on your home, prepare your home for the summer now so you can sit back and relax as soon as the pleasant weather kicks in. Not sure what needs to be done to get your home in tip-top shape? Here’s our short list on to focus on.

Spring Cleaning and Routine Maintenance

Snow and ice in the winter, followed by heavy rain and winds in the spring can significantly impact the look and integrity of your home. A deep spring cleaning outside is the only way to get your home looking its best and to protect its value. What areas should get the most attention? The roof, eaves-troughs, gutter helmet and masonry. And if you come across any minor signs of damage, like missing shingles or hairline cracks in the foundation, it’s worth calling in an expert to have a closer look.

Air Conditioning Checkups

If you want your air conditioner to perform optimally all summer long, you need to have it inspected and repaired before you turn it on. Annual maintenance should include removing any debris, changing the filters, cleaning the lines and condenser coils, and replacing damaged insulation on coolant lines and testing. If you’re not familiar with all the moving parts of your AC, it’s best to call in an expert.

Get The Carpet Cleaned

With all the rain and mud that occurs over the spring season, your carpets can trap dirt, bacteria and assorted debris. This can leave behind stains and worn out fabric which can also release airborne contaminants and allergens into the air. Summer is the perfect time to give all of your floor coverings quality cleaning. A professional carpet cleaning service will extend the life of your carpet, make your home cleaner, and remove any odours and pollutants that have accumulated over the winter and spring months.

Have The Ducts Cleaned

Hot weather calls for continuous use of the HVAC system to cool your home and reduce the humidity levels. Dirty ducts that have not been cleaned can affect the indoor air quality and transport airborne pollutants and allergens throughout the home. Regular air duct cleaning can remove any dirt, contaminants, and allergens that have collected in the ducts over time.
