It’s that time again, the weather is warming up here in South-East Queensland and it’s a great time to ensure your house and property is in the best shape to deal with a hot, humid and stormy summer. We have put together a handy checklist to follow, you can do it yourself or hire a professional business to take care of it for you.
Repair and Reseal Woodwork
Wooden decks, fences, railings, pergolas and other wooden outdoor structures will last longer and stay in better condition if they’re stained or resealed every year. Keep an eye out for signs of termites and if you need to, call a professional pest control service.
Inspect Your Roof
Take a look at your roof for signs of wear and tear or for a safer option get a professional to take a look for you. A roofing professional will be able to discover faults and suggest repairs before it causes moisture damage to your home.
Power Wash Your Home
Keep your property looking beautiful and healthy by using a pressure washer to remove accumulated dirt, mold, moss and other stains from your driveway, deck and other areas.
Trim Yard Overgrowth
With an active storm season forecast it is important to trim overgrown trees and hedges and remove any weeds or dead plants. Hire professional qualified and insured Arborists (link- www.heritagetreecare.com.au) forall dangerous tree work.
Clean Windows and Check Screens
Springtime not only brings the sunshine, but also the insects. Clean the inside and outside of your windows, and check your screens for holes.
Freshen Up Your Paint
Walk around the exterior of your house to look for chipped or cracked paint. When wood is exposed, it will begin to rot. This could be the perfect time to update the colour of your house and add curb appeal.
Service Your Air Conditioning Unit
Do yourself a favor and check your air conditioning before the hot and humid days arrive. Change the air filters at least once a month. A unit that is free of dust and dirt will save you money on your utility bill.
Prepare your home for extreme weather. Make sure your gutters remain unblocked by leaves and debris. Trapped moisture in the gutters can lead to mold and mildew, which can cause major damage to your roof and walls. Once you clean the gutters, make sure the downspout is clean and pointing away from the foundation walls. Water pools near the foundation create breeding grounds for insects in the summer and can damage your foundation over time.
