Want to get your South Florida home ready for summer? Then follow this summer 2018 maintenance checklist compiled by our home maintenance company:
A New Coat Of Paint For Your Home’s Exterior
Want to add some curb appeal to your home and give it an instant facelift? Then make full use of the warmer weather outside and give your home a fresh coat of paint. You can also consider incorporating some of the trendy exterior paint color palettes such as:
- Peach, cream, and green
- Soft gray and canary yellow
- Cotton white and deep blue
- Ivory, white, and aqua
- Crisp white, aqua, and royal purple
- Honey yellow, mustard yellow, and brown
- Cool green and pure white
- Taupe and rustic brown
- Olive green, oak, and white
While the interior facing sides of windows get cleaned relatively often, the windows’ exteriors are a different story. They are usually only cleaned once or perhaps twice a year. Fill up a bucket with warm soapy water and get those windows squeaky clean.
Check The Direction Of Your Ceiling Fans
This is an interesting hack that we have picked up over the years. If you reverse your ceiling fan so that it spins counter-clockwise, then the air gets pushed towards the floor instead of upwards which creates a cool breeze within your interior spaces.
Book An HVAC Maintenance Service
It is essential to get technicians to come and check your air conditioning or HVAC system before summer is in full swing. These technicians will check the electrical wiring, replace your air filters, and suggest any other tweaks or repairs that need to be made. Not only will this save you money in the long run (because you will be able to pick up on minor issues before it becomes a big problem), but it can also ensure that your system is running more efficiently, which will keep you cool during summer and save on your utility bill.
