Getting your House ready for July 4th Inside and Out

Friends at outdoor dining table celebrate forth of July with flags and food.

Summer is a busy time for all of us full of vacations, sporting events, and holidays. One of the most important of these holidays is July 4th. July 4th is a time to celebrate our country and spend time with our friends and family. As we look forward to enjoying this holiday, let’s think about how much work goes into hosting holiday celebrations. There are plenty of house maintenance tasks that need to happen if you are to thoroughly enjoy any of your holiday and summer celebrations.

The most important type of maintenance work for hosting any sort of event in the summer is making sure that your outdoor space is clean and tidy. Maintenance such as power washing, landscaping, and properly setting up your patio/deck are extremely important for enjoying the summer months. Power washing helps bring life back to your house, patio, or deck and removes years of staining wear and tear from them, while landscaping helps make your yard look and feel much more cozy. Removing plant debris also prevents bugs from invading much of your space.

A fun touch for any outdoor party; installing new surround sound speakers, this makes your outdoor area much more of an entertainment and space meant to share with your friends and family. The last great maintenance task for truly making your outdoor space great is doing a seasonal deep clean of your grill. Cleaning your grill only takes around 30 minutes to an hour and will make sure that your grill is up and running properly, plus it’ll make sure your food is tasting as great as possible. Although the outside is extremely important for entertaining throughout the summer, the inside of your home is just as if not more important.

July is a great month to be sitting outside, however it is the hottest month of the year, which is why it is great to be able to cool off inside. One of the most important maintenance items when it comes to the summer is making sure that you have a working air conditioning unit. Air conditioners can be extremely costly to fix if broken, and they typically need to have filters replaced every 90 days. Another extremely important maintenance item people typically overlook is dryer vent cleaning. Dryer vent cleaning is extremely important because they become clogged with lint, causing 2,900 fires per year and $35 million in property loss.

These maintenance tasks typically forgotten can really help bring some life back into your house and make it the perfect place to be this summer. No matter what you need this summer, Our TruBlue Tru-Pro Handymen are here to help!
