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!

With the summer in full swing, people are going to be spending much more time outside. Whether people are spending this time with friends or family or if they’re enjoying the outdoors alone, having a nice yard is key when it comes to enjoying your summer. We’ve already talked about ways to keep your yard safe for the summer season, read it here, but now we want to talk about fun additions to your set up. There are many different things you can add to your yard to help make it as welcoming as it can be. We decided to compile a list of some projects that you can do in your own backyard to bring some life to it. 1. Building a Paver Patio. One of the first things you can do to help make your backyard as welcoming as possible is to give yourself some outdoor space to sit down in. A custom paver patio is a great spot to sit around and just hangout with your friends and family. Paver patios are highly customizable as well. You are able to choose the type, shape, size, and color of the pavers and you’re able to customize how big you want your patio to be. Paver patios also do not require an incredible amount of materials other than the pavers themselves and some sand. 2. Building a Fire Pit/Grills. Fire Pits are a staple in summer activities, and they really tie together a backyard. Whether you're just using the fire pit for warmth on a windy summer night or making smores with the neighborhood kids, they are excellent for bringing people together. Fire pits aren’t too hard to make either, get some patio pavers and stack them on top of each other in a circle and, tada, you’ve got a fire pit. Fire pits are great for making some small treats such as smores, but making a built-in grill can be great for cooking anything else. Grills are the perfect backyard accessory for welcoming families over to a backyard grill out. Grills, although not as cheap as a fire pit, are much more useful when it comes to creating meals compared to something as simple as smores. 3. Kids Play Area. Another great project that you could do in your yard is building a dedicated kids play area. Kids play areas could be anything from a playground, a tire swing, or even a sandbox. These kids' play areas will help encourage them away from their screens, and to be outside with their friends. Involve your kids in the process, allow them to choose between two playsets, or even help you set it up. The more ownership kids get in the process the more pride they will put into their play. Getting your kids outdoors can not only be good for them, but also for you, giving yourself some precious freetime to relax. 4. Gazebo/Canopy. Depending on where you live, in the summer months you know that sometimes it can get really hot, and staying in the shade is essential. One of the best and most appealing ways of staying cool is to build a canopy over your back patio or deck. Canopies not only look great but also function amazingly in shading you from the sun. Gazebos are another great backyard project as they can provide a great shaded comfortable area to chill out and read a book. Lastly, Pergolas are also great for those who want to be even more shaded, but still have plenty of sun. All of these different options provide you with many different ways to enjoy your outdoor space and stay shaded this summer. 5. Redoing Decks. Decks are a great place to lounge and host gatherings, however many people’s decks have been neglected over the years. Decks can become worn out and lose the shine that they used to have. Whether your deck has a few holes in it, needs to be restrained or painted or just completely redone it’s a great backyard project. Decks can also have a lot of splinter pieces that could also catch on someone’s foot or paw if you aren't careful, regular sanding and maintenance of your deck could also be a good thing to do to help prevent injury. 6. Water Features. Water Features are a great way to spice up your backyard. Water features can be anything from installing a pond, a fountain, or even putting in a small pool. Ponds are a great way to make your backyard look great and come to life. Patio Pavers and decks can be built around ponds to make your yard feel like a jungle, and provide a seamless transition between the various features of your backyard. Pools are also a great way to cool off and relax during the hot summer days and above ground pools are both an affordable way to cool off as well as an efficient way to enjoy your summers. 7. Privacy Fencing and Landscaping. One of the most important projects you could do in your backyard is landscaping. Landscaping is extremely important for making sure that your yard looks inviting and beautiful. Making sure that your flowerbeds are mulched properly and that your trees are trimmed help turn a potentially ugly yard into a beautiful yard. Another great project that your yard could use is a privacy fence. Privacy fences are especially great if you have pets, however they are just as useful without them. Privacy fencing can make your backyard look so much more enclosed and safe, without privacy fencing your yard can feel like it bleeds into your neighbors and vice versa. Overall, keeping your yard well landscaped and properly fenced in truly makes your yard feel like home. Each of these many different yard projects can really just add to the feel of your backyard and make it a much more enjoyable place to be. When you combine yard projects such as a paver patio and a firepit together it can really just bring your whole yard together and give it a more cozy feel. Overall, these yard projects are the perfect to keep you occupied for this summer. TruBlue and our skilled handyman are equipped to help you out with many of these tasks, if you run into trouble completing them or want professional and helpful service from the start.

It’s getting warmer and starting to feel like summertime. When the weather gets nicer we know that more people spend their days outside enjoying nature. Although spring and summer are beautiful, there are some inherent dangers to the outdoors that we have to remember, especially as we age. We’ve put together a list of 5 outdoor safety tips and ticks for the aging adventurer in your life. 1 Decluttering your Sheds and Garages. Decluttering your space is extremely important when trying to prevent many issues, such as cleanliness and tripping hazards. Decluttering can also help prevent the masking of potential critter and bug infestations. It can also reduce the amount of dust that builds up, for cleaner air aiding with allergies. Garages and sheds are great for storage, but if it becomes cluttered, disorganized, or if it’s bursting at the seams, the space no longer is safe and now poses a risk for items falling down and becoming tripping hazards, and making your items unusable because they’re too hard to access. 2 Proper Lighting. As we age, our eyesight deteriorates rapidly, which makes having proper lighting on both the inside and outside of the house extremely necessary. Making sure that your home is properly lit on the outside can help prevent tripping when walking over unstable ground and terrain. There are many different types of lights that you can use on the exterior of your home, but some of the best ones to use are motion sensor lights, path lights, and stair lights, all of which can help make the exterior of your home the best and safest it can be. Some lights are even solar powered so you’ll never have to worry about changing a battery or running electricity from your house to the lights. 3 Outdoor Shade Cover. One of the best things for people of all ages to do for their health is to sit outside and get some fresh air, however as we grow older there are some increased risks for doing so. As we age, we become more susceptible to contracting skin cancer from the sun's harmful UV rays. A good way to enjoy the outdoors while also staying safe from the dangerous UV is to invest in a shade cover. A fabric shade cover can block up to 98% of the sun’s harmful UV rays, along with cooling your patio by up to 20 degrees. There are many other types of covers that can protect your skin from the sun including pergolas, umbrellas, awnings, and canopies. Shade covers can help you get that freedom of enjoying the outdoors again, without putting you at risk for skin cancer. 4 SHS Monitoring Technology. One new feature offered by Seniors Home Services is their Remote Care Monitoring technology. Their Remote Care Monitoring system uses motion detectors, sensors, and AI to detect unusual behaviors in the residents home, without invasive cameras. Behaviors such as inactivity, open doors late at night, and the stove or water being on for too long are all detected through their sensors. All these different sensors paired with the AI software can help notify technicians of potentially hazardous situations. The system helps reduce the risk of falls and allows for quick responses to falls should they happen. This system also includes a necklace that has a button on it in case you run into trouble while outside of your house. 5 Enhance your Outdoor Mobility. Mobility is important for everyone, but its importance grows as you age. Ensuring that you’re able to move freely around your home and yard is an essential part to being able to Age-in-Place. If you utilize mobility devices, such as walkers, canes, or scooters, getting an outdoor ramp and widening your entrance way is extremely important to get around comfortably. Not only is being comfortable extremely important, but the safety that these ramps provide is extremely important for everyone using them. Ramps provide that extra mobility for people who need it the most. TruBlue offers services such as ramp installations and doorway widening, which can help make mobility much safer. To help with clutter, we have our maid service, which allows for customizable options as far as scheduling and what work you need done. Installation of Outdoor Shade Covers can also be done by our TruBlue Tru-Pro home technicians. TruBlue technicians can also install external motion detectable lights that can help make sure you get where you need to be in the dark. Lastly, since TruBlue is partnered with Senior Home Services we can help get the Remote Care Monitoring system up and running.
