Summer is finally here, Yehaa Calgary Stampede around the corner

Things to do around your home this summer.


Summer Home Checklist for Calgary Alberta.

Outdoor Checklist
Inspect exterior surfaces of your home, condo, acreage and summer property for cracks and make any needed repairs.

If the paint is peeling, cracking, or chipped, repair and repaint now to limit damage to the underlying materials.

Repair any damaged caulking around windows and doors.

Remove window screens and clean with a soft brush and soapy water. Repair any holes or tears or replace the screen material before reinstalling.

Have air conditioning units serviced to ensure proper operation? Promote air circulation around the unit by keeping shrubs and plants trimmed.

Clear debris from gutters and eaves to allow rainwater to drain correctly.

Seal cracks in the driveway and keep walkways clear of debris and overgrown plants.

Test irrigation/sprinkler systems and replace any broken sprinkler heads or emitters. Check for proper water coverage and adjust if necessary.

Clean deck and patio surfaces and seal surfaces

Indoor Checklist
Vacuum refrigerator coils for the dust to help maintain energy efficiency.

If possible, take area rugs outside and hang them over a deck or porch rail to air out.

Adjust ceiling fans for proper balance. While you’re at it, give the unit a good dusting.

Switch heavy bedding out for lightweight summer fabrics. Has the winter bedding cleaned before storing?

Close the chimney flue where appropriate to increase energy efficiency

Repot houseplants to give their roots a fresh start for the summer.
