Summer is here in Chetek WI! But before you can head outdoors exploring, camping, boating, water skiing, or swimming, it’s time to make sure your Wisconsin home has been cared for before the summer heat really sets in. As your local real estate experts in the City of Lakes, we’ve included your Summer Home Maintenance To-Do List below!
Inspect Air Conditioner
If you have a central air unit for your Chetek WI home, you’ll want to ensure it’s ready for working overtime this summer. Remove any debris around the unit, dusting off the exterior, and change your air filter before turning it on.
Clean Your Grill
Who doesn’t love to grill in the summer? Just make sure your grill has been cleaned before you start to cook all of your meals outdoors. Scrub the grates with a grill brush and wipe down the exterior with a damp cloth. Clean the drip pans if you have a gas grill and empty the ashes if you use a charcoal grill. You can even clean the inside of your charcoal grill with liquid dishwashing soap and a sponge— but allow it to completely dry before firing it up again.
Seal Your Deck
Ready to spend some time relaxing on your home’s deck? Take a look around and make sure any exposed nails have been hammered back down and if water (whether rain or otherwise) soaks into the wood, now is when you’ll want to reseal it.
Summer flowers can do wonders for the curb appeal of your Chetek WI home, but it’s important that they retain as much moisture as possible in the summer sun. Consider adding mulch to keep both weeds at bay and allow moisture to get to your plants.
We love to spend time in the summer weather, but don’t forget about the inside of your Chetek home! Place doormats at the entry points, both inside and out, of your home to stop guests (and your own family!) from tracking dirt indoors.
