The end of Summer is near; therefore, it’s time for some clean up before the cooler air catches us off guard. This type of cleaning will help prep the house for the cooler weather,prepare you for repairing any of the important Winter, and prepare certain items for the next Summer season.
One of the first items that need preparation is the air conditioning filters. Make sure there is no dust or dirt built up when taking them out this season. It takes about five minutes or less and is an easy repair to do. This can help protect the maintenance of the much needed appliance for Summer.
The second thing to check would be the hot water heater settings. This is good to check just to make sure that everything is running smoothly. Set the setting at 120 degrees Fahrenheit or below to inspect and confirm that everything is flowing at a good heat. If any hotter than 120, this could be scalding.
The third thing would be to clean the stove. Cleaning the stove can prevent a fire from the grease build up that can take place. So make sure to clean the burners, coils and grates with warm soapy water. Make sure to examine the oven for preparation for the holiday season.
Checking the fire extinguishers are important. They do have expiration dates so this should be on high alert to update if they haven’t been used or checked.
Afterwards, make sure to check any cracks on the floors, walls and in the foundation. Also check for cracks on the outside concrete. This can get worse when the colder weather comes because they can create a worse crack in the concrete than from before. If there is any noticeable cracks, write them down and take care of it as soon as possible.
Finally, check for dust. In the Summer, sometimes cleaning can become a little slacked based on the busy times of the Summer sun. So before closing the house up for the Winter and jacking the heat up, clean up and wipe down any baseboards, fan blades, tables etc.
