Only a few days left for this cosy winter season to finish, and the summer will arrive. As you all are enjoying the cold breeze of winter, you might have forgotten to do the checklist of items that you will need in summer. Therefore, before summer comes, you should reorganize a few seasonal things at home so that you can immediately enjoy the summer. Here are a few such things you need to check and fix before summer arrives-
Keep your air conditioner ready before spring arrives
You must check if your air conditioner is in working condition. You cannot imagine your life without an air conditioner and it will be difficult for you to carry out day to day task when the summer comes. Apart from it, it will leave an impact on your productivity, because you always need a cool atmosphere at home to do your own work. So, contact a professional like us to check if it is in good condition, and get the servicing done if needed. Then as the summer comes, you can rely on your system.
It is important to keep the ac unit clean for better functioning. If you leave it open, dust can easily come inside the vents and cause a blockage.
And in most cases, this prevents the release of cool air when the summer comes. You must clean out the filters as well in time to avoid unnecessary expense later. If you have both the options for heating and cooling, just check if they are working fine.
Check your plumbing system before spring arrives
Check your pipes and under the sinks to rule out the possibility of any leakage. Check the faucets for any ripping sound and in the toilet, check the flapper valve is in working condition. Spring always comes with rain, so you must check your sump pump to see if it is draining excess water properly.
Check your chimney in the kitchen before spring arrives
Your chimney releases dangerous gas from your fireplace and woodstove make the inside atmosphere healthy. As you frequently use the fireplace in the winter, therefore you get your chimney cleaned periodically or before the summer comes to keep yourself safe. Maintain your smoke alarm in working condition to avoid any danger from fire.
Organize your bedroom closet before spring arrives
Depending on the season, we love to wear clothes which give us comfort. In winter we love warm, heavy clothes and in summer we love to wear light and brighter clothes. Keep your winter wears aside by dividing your closet. Get some hangers and rearrange your wardrobe. Heavier clothes and accessories should be kept aside before spring arrives. Keep your summer ready clothes aside so that you can wear them without searching them in the wardrobe. It is best to maintain separate compartments for your summer and winter clothes if you are keeping them in the same wardrobe. It will feel your light and you can take out any clothes easily when the summer comes. Cleaning and reorganizing your closet will take 2 to 3 days maximum.
Some other things you need to check and fix before summer arrives
You must clean and maintain your grounds before spring arrives. Revive those plants which have survived the winter and take care of your other plants.
Use mulch in the flowerbeds to retain the necessary moisture and it will protect them from drought in the summer. Look for any dead trees around your house for safety precaution before spring arrives.
Check the gutters in your house which controls the flow of rainwater in your house, protecting the foundation of your house. You will heavily rely on this when the summer comes. The springtime comes with rains and therefore check for any leakage which might infiltrate water into your house. Clean them at regular intervals.
Check your house painting and if there are signs of peeling, then your house should need a fresh coat of paint. Always start the painting work in the springtime so that you can finish them by the time summer comes.
If you have a patio behind your house, then it is likely that it has got a layer of winter grime. This is natural as you do not use the patio daily in the winter. If you have a swimming pool, then hire a professional to clean it up before spring arrives.
