First Day of Summer

Today is the first day of summer and the longest day of the year.  Your children are out of school, and vacation plans are underway.  Get prepared for summer by following these maintenance tips provided by Heather Turner from Property/Casualty 360:

  • Check doors and windows for any holes or tears.
  • Inspect electrical outlets and cords for potential fire risks, such as damaged wires or loose plugs.
  • Check toilets for leaking.  Examine pipe/hose connections in bathroom and laundry room for cracking, wear or leakage.
  • Clean or replace your furnace filter, dryer vent and lint trop to reduce fire risks.
  • Check outside wood structures for rot or deterioration.  Replace and repair any rotted or loose boards and protruding nails.
  • Evaluate swing sets and other recreational equipment for damage, such as rusty bolts, and sharp edges.
  • Examine outside windows, doors and their frames for damage.
  • Walk the entire perimeter of your yard to check for signs of damage or evidence of unwanted wildfire or rodents.
  • Inspect the roof for potential issues.
  • If you do find damage, make necessary repairs immediately to prevent future damage. 

Add these tasks to your honey-do list and prepare for a risk-free summer.
