Before it gets too hot in the "Valley Of The Sun" you will want to make sure you home is ready for Summer. Here are a few things you can do in order to get ready:
1) WASH YOUR HOME'S EXTERIOR - Take your hose and sprayer and gently wash from top to bottom your home's exterior. This will brighten up your home and give it a fresh look.
2) WASH YOUR WINDOWS - It is very easy to remove your screens from your windows and get them sparkling clean and ready for Summer.
Items needed: hose with sprayer, squeegee, window washer or rag, dish soap, clean dry lint-free rag, water and 5 gallon bucket.
Just add one teaspoon of dish soap to three gallons of water as a cleaner. You can get a squeegee and window cleaning kit from your favorite home improvement store. I used a 5 gallon bucket and filled it with 3 gallons of water and a teaspoon of Dawn. Spray down the windows with plain water. Then use the window washer or rag to clean the windows. Wipe the top few inches of the window off with the dry lint-free rag to get a dry area. Then hold the squeegee at a 45 degree angle and swipe from top to bottom.
3) ADD A FRESH COAT OF PAINT - Nothing makes you home shine like a fresh coat of exterior paint. If you don't need your home painted, consider painting the eaves near your roof line. These are often just painted boards that need a fresh coat of paint every few years.
If you follow these three easy maintenance tips, you will help keep up your home's value and get more enjoyment out of your home.
