5 Tips for Your Spring Home Maintenance Checklist Before Summer

Want to be able to enjoy the summer to its fullest? There could be a spring home maintenance checklist worth carrying out before summer arrives. Below are just some of the tasks worth carrying out now to get ready for summer.

Tidy your backyard


You’ll likely want to use your backyard more in summer. You may even have plans of throwing a few outdoor parties and get-togethers. Of course, before you start inviting guests around, you’ll want to make sure your backyard is in presentable condition.

Start tidying your backyard now so that you can start throwing parties as soon as the sun arrives. A few backyard maintenance tasks worth doing could include mowing the lawn, trimming back overgrown plants, getting rid of any leaves and debris, cleaning your patio/decking and repainting exterior wood. Dedicate a day to taking care of all of this.

Replace old outdoor furniture/equipment

Now could be a good time to replace any old outdoor furniture or equipment. This could include tables, chairs, barbecues, lawnmowers and other items.

Prices of these items will increase during the summer due to the demand. Now is a great time to grab discounts on outdoor furniture and barbecues. Look online to see what deals you can find. Furthermore, you can refresh your list modern home decor ideas.

Service/repair your air conditioning

When was the last time you serviced your air conditioning? It could be worth carrying out an inspection now to make sure that your air conditioning is working efficiently. Many of us use our air con more frequently in the summer and it’s the most common season for HVAC breakdowns, which is something you don’t want to happen during a heatwave.

Call up your air conditioning service provider to schedule a service, as well as any necessary repairs that may need doing. Air conditioning should ideally be inspected every year to make sure that it is working properly.

Clear out the freezer


Many of us use our freezer more in the summer – whether it’s for ice creams or frozen meats to put on the barbecue. If your freezer is currently full, you may want to clear out some space before the summer arrives.

Of course, a clearout doesn’t mean chucking away food. Plan out a few meals so that you can make use of any frozen foods that have been hiding in your freezer.

Clean the inside of your car

The summer is also a popular time for going on a long car journey, whether it’s a day trip to the beach, a family vacation or a road trip. Don’t wait until the night before a long car journey to clean out the inside of your car. Now could be a good time to tackle this task.

Focus on getting rid of any trash and unwanted items first that could be taking up space. Then give your car interior a thorough vacuum to get rid of any crumb, dirt or pet hair. Wiping down surfaces will help to get rid of any bacteria and could be worth doing too. Your car interior will then be clutter-free and hygienic, ready for all those long car journeys. And definetely you are checking a task from your spring home maintenance checklist.
