The Ultimate Summer Home Maintenance Checklist

summer maintenance checklist 2023

Summer in Boca Raton is a time for outdoor recreation, distant trips, and a little downtime with a cold beverage. For families, this means camp for the kids and quiet afternoons for mom. For athletes, this means another torrid offseason of triple-digit temperatures. For the elderly, it means more time in their enclosed Florida rooms. Regardless of what your Summer shapes out to be, we're here to prepare you for the grunt work that goes into Boca Raton homeownership in the Summer. This checklist might not have the glamor of a day at the Boca Beach Club, but with a warm, humid, subtropical environment like ours, problems in your home can be magnified - especially for those with waterfront homes. Today's blog covers our comprehensive home cleaning checklist from top to bottom, inside and out. Read on and roll up your sleeves! It's time to get to work.

Home Exterior

Your home exterior is the first line of defense against the elements, your outermost security blanket, and the first impression you provide for your guests, and future buyers.

  • CLEAN YOUR GUTTERS
  • PRESSURE WASH YOUR PAVERS AND DECKING
  • CHECK SECURITY SYSTEMS & MOTION DETECTOR LIGHTS
  • INSPECT AND PROPERLY TRIM YOUR TREES
  • ORGANICALLY FERTILIZE YOUR LAWN
  • DEEP CLEAN YOUR GRILL
  • CHECK WATER FILTRATION SYSTEMS
  • CLEAR YOUR DRYER VENT AND EXHAUST DUCT
  • SEAL DOORS AND WINDOWS

Home Interior

Your home interior should reflect the efforts you've made on the exterior - especially when unifying a combined pest control approach, controlling airflow, and insulation. Once you've entered your home, there is much more to do than just minding the exterior. Work your way inward, cleaning from the infrastructural elements through to the soft and aesthetic.

  • REPLACE A/C FILTERS
  • INSPECT A/C FOR EFFICIENCY AND LIFESPAN
  • CLEAR YOUR DRYER VENT
  • CLEAR YOUR SWIMMING POOL OF DEBRIS
  • ENSURE NO FOUNTAINS OR WATERWORKS ON THE PREMISES ARE STAGNANT OR UNFILTERED
  • ADD COUNTERMEASURES FOR MOSQUITOS AND OTHER INSECTS
  • WATERPROOF WOODEN FURNITURE
  • REMOVE RUST FROM METAL FURNITURE
  • PREPARE FOR SHEDDING PETS
  • REVERSE CEILING FANS

home security maintenance

Safety & Security

Safety and security are a total approach including every corner of your property. From pest control and pet safety to antitheft protection, smoke detection, and hurricane readiness, safety & security are its own set of tasks that are integrated with, but not a direct part of, the cleaning around the home.

  • CHECK SMOKE DETECTORS AND REPLACE 9V BATTERIES
  • PREPARE YOUR HURRICANE KIT AND HOME SUPPLIES
  • REPLENISH YOUR FIRST AID KIT
  • PREPARE YOUR PETS FOR THE HOT SEASON
