  1. Power wash and re-stain your deck. All the snow & rain sitting on it through the Winter and Spring may have worn the seal down and left it mildewy!
  2. Add mulch to landscaping beds. This is a great way to improve curb appeal after a soggy spring!
  3. Check the exterior. Repaint any peeling or faded paint to prevent wood rot. If you discover wood rot have it repaired immediately to prevent further damage!
  4. Service your AC unit. You don’t want to be the one that loses AC on the hottest day of the year.
  5. Check windows and doors for air leaks. Always have a tube of caulk and some weather stripping on hand. Filling cracks will help keep cold AC inside and helps save on your utility bills no matter the season.
  6. Inspect the foundation inside and out. Repair any cracks and add dirt around the foundation.
Don’t forget to stock up on sunscreen, bug repellent, hats, and sunglasses while you’re at it!
