As summer is slowly but surely approaching, it’s time to get your house ready for the warmer months ahead. Over the winter a lot of your home may have been neglected and will need some love. From the indoors to the out, we have compiled a list of things to get done before the summer officially arrives.
Clean and declutter your home.
It’s about that time to do a bit of ‘Spring Cleaning’. Get rid of everything in your home that you no longer need, put away all your winter clothing and bring out the summer gear. See if there is anything that needs fixing or replacing. It's always great to start the new season with new or refreshed things. No matter how much you keep your home clean over the winter, it’s never quite that clean due to the mud and dust you constantly bring in. As the weather gets warmer it’s a great time to do a proper clean of your home and get rid of all the mould, dust and dirt making it a safe and healthy place to live in once again.
Get your aircon checked
Service those air conditioning units of yours! There’s nothing worse than needing some cool air on a hot day and your unit is broken or full of dust. That’s why, before the temperatures get rather warm and make you feel like you’re living in an oven, you must get your air conditioner checked out to ensure it will keep you cool throughout the summer.
Revamp your yard
Let’s be honest, during the winter months your yard got a bit neglected. Dust off your lawn mower and give your grass a cut, pull out all the weeds, trim back the trees allowing new branches to grow, clean off your BBQ and freshen up your outdoor setting. Also, check that your hose is in good working order for when you need to water the garden or even cool off the kids. You could even think of planting some big shady trees. They will not only keep the sun off your home and help in cutting the cost to cool down your house, but they will also contribute to making the yard look inviting and create the best garden environment for you and your family to enjoy in the summer.
