Property Maintenance Tips for Summer

Make the most out of the summer by managing your property.

The weather is heating up, which means that it’s time to make sure that your property is ready for the summer season! High temperatures, sweltering heat, and dry air can damage your building in more ways than one. Fortunately, there are certain preventative measures that you can take to protect your building so that you don’t have to deal with any disasters this summer season!

Check out these property maintenance tips for summer!

Clean your gutters and downspouts. Leaves, debris, and dust can build up in your gutters and clog up your downspouts over the spring season. Taking the time now (especially while the weather is nice outside!) to clean your gutters means that the risk of water damage to your property is severely lessened, come autumn.

Inspect the roof. Conducting a roof inspection at least once a year is one of the best ways to prevent roof leaks. Roof damage can cause extensive water damage that may destroy the ceiling, trim, walls, and floors in your property.

Freshen up the exterior. The summer heat can be disastrous for exterior surfaces, often facilitating the accumulation of dirt and algae along with mold growth, dry rot, permanent staining, and paint failure. Whether you choose to give your property a new coat of paint or pressure, wash the exterior surfaces and spend some time giving it the much-needed TLC.

Maintain your air conditioner. Your air conditioner has a tough job ahead in the summer, and giving it the maintenance it needs will keep it from working harder than it needs to. Regularly clean out or replace the filters and check them once a week during the summer months. This will help your air conditioner out and reduce the dust and pollen circulating in your home.

Consistent maintenance and preventative steps can help you to avoid an emergency from the intense heat! Additionally, the right management software can help to ensure that you’re able to complete all of the necessary maintenance tasks as efficiently as possible.
