Get your Home and Yard ready for Summer
Tips on how to get your Home and Yard ready for the Summer Season!
Summer is here and it's hot! As you relax, it's also a good time to take care of a few household maintenance tasks. Spruce up your home while it's warm and sunny.
Start with cleaning the mold and dust off the siding of your home. The best way to ensure your siding lasts for many years is to use a soft cloth or a soft-bristle brush that has a long handle. A jet nozzle on your hose will help you be more efficient when you rinse.
If your asphalt driveway is worn out from weather changes or general wear, it may be time for a makeover. Since sealing asphalt is more successful in warmer weather, Summer is the perfect time to do the job. For a new asphalt sealer to work effectively, the temperature outside must be at least 50 degrees.
It's likely you will spend a lot of time relaxing and entertaining on your deck or patio this summer. Revive it with a fresh coat of paint or stain. A deck surface temperature of no more than 90 degrees is ideal for this job in the early or late summer.
Take advantage of the summer warmth to help maintain your home and its value.
