Summer is a great time to do a few things around the home. Here are a few ways to maintain your home this summer.
Check safety devices at home. Look for an expiration date on your fire extinguisher and check all smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
Clean the garage and organize. Organize sports equipment , and recycle or throw out junk.
Check the driveway. Patch and seal your driveway if needed. There are many great companies in Ottawa that can do this.
Pressure wash the porch or deck and replace any exterior light bulbs.
Clean pet area. Wash pet covers and pet toys.
Clean exterior windows. A squeegee and a pail of water consisting of water, a capful of vinegar and a few drops of dish soap can do the trick.
Check your sprinkler system. Check for any leaks. It is a good idea to have a back flow prevention device.
This is a good time to finish any unfinished projects. Painting, outdoor projects or any renovations not completed can be completed and enjoyed for the rest of the summer.
