Maintaining a home is a year-round job, so it’s a good idea to spread out the work into smaller chore lists you can tackle at the start of each season.
We call it the 4 Seasons of Home Ownership.
For summer, the list includes things like inspecting and repairing your deck, fences and gates.
Those things will see more use this time of year, and it’s important that that you replace any loose fasteners or rotten wood to make them safe for your family and friends.
And you’re going to be doing more entertaining outside, so be sure to clean your grill … you’ll want it in tip-top shape for those backyard cook-outs this summer.
This is also a great time to thoroughly clean your windows inside and out, so you can enjoy the outdoors — from inside, too.
Speaking of the inside of your home, tackle organizing your garage this summer. Now’s a great time to purge any unnecessary items and schedule a garage sale to make a few extra dollars.
You’ll find the list with all of these chores, and a few more ideas for summer, at Todayshomeowner.com/4seasons.
