What to know before joining

Temperatures are starting to rise, meaning there’s no time like the present to get started on your mid-year home maintenance projects. You’re likely going to be spending more time outdoors over the next few months, and spending a bit of time upfront on seasonal chores will allow you to thoroughly enjoy your summer leisure these next few months.

Pressure Wash Your Driveway and Patio

Make sure your driveway and patio is spick and span! Before you start power washing, it’s a good idea to check your driveway and patio for any cracks and weeds. Once you have given everything a full inspection, wash away all the dirt, mold and grime that’s built up over the past year.

Clear out Your Gutters

Don’t ignore your gutters! Gutters that become clogged are unable to do their job, which is to protect your home. Clogged gutters can lead to leaky roofs and water damage. Not to mention, it can attract unwanted summer visitors – pests, rodents and mold.

Prevent Bug Breeding Grounds

Living alongside the Mississippi River, we have to take bug prevention seriously in Memphis! A quick spritz of outdoor bug spray around the perimeter of your house and yard will help keep insects away. You can also caulk your windows and doors to stop bugs and ants from finding a way into your home.

Beautify Your Yard

Get your yard ready for summer cookouts and pool parties! Start by clearing out all dead plants and weeds from your yard. You can then lay mulch in your flower beds, which will help keep weeds away and allow your plants to retain moisture.

Prep the Grill

It’s the season for outdoor barbecues! Make sure your grill is nice and clean before preparing hamburgers and hot dogs this summer. If you have a gas grill, heat it up for about 20-30 minutes and then scrub the grates clean with a grill brush. For a charcoal grill, all you’ll need is a bucket of soapy water and a sponge. For proper grill safety, check hoses for cracks, holes and blockages before you fire it up for the first time.
