Summer is around the corner. Along with a new season comes a change in weather, harmful UV rays that can damage wooden surfaces and sweltering heat that can drive your utility bill through the roof. But don’t fear, we’ve got you covered. Here are 4 ways to get your house ready for the Summer:
1. Clean and declutter
It’s time to for a spot of last-minute ‘Spring cleaning’ and chuck out everything you no longer need. If there is anything that needs fixing or replacing, it’s the perfect time to start the new season with new or refreshed things. As the weather gets warmer it’s a great time to make your home safe again by getting rid of all the mould, dust and dirt.
2. Tend your garden
During the winter months, your garden can often get a little neglected. It’s time to dust off your lawn mower and give your grass a cut, remove the weeds and trim back the trees. It’s also the perfect time to clean off your barbecue and freshen up your outdoor space.
3. Clean the gutters
During the winter month’s the weather can be harsh. It’s important to clean out your gutter from the Autumn leaves. Cleaning the gutter can be a tough job but it ensures the water in the downpipes aren’t blocked and are flowing nicely preventing any water build up.
4. Install shutters
Shutters are a great way to cool your home and cut down your air-con bill. Plantation shutters reduce the heat coming through your windows while adding characters to your window and your home. With shutters, you can keep your windows open and keep the airflow coming through while maintaining privacy levels.
