August and Late Summer Maintenance Checklist


Maintenance Checklist

  • Change out your HVAC filter.
  • Test your Smoke Detector
  • Doors & Windows
    • Check the operation of all your doors and windows  you know the kids have been tough on them (That includes the Garage Doors)
    • Check the weather-stripping around them & replace as necessary
    • Check the frames for evidence of rot – this is a good month for those repairs with either an Epoxy based system, or replacement
    • Check for loose or cracked caulking & replace it – don’t cover over it
    • Cracked windows, or missing glazing should be repaired or replaced
    • Screens – take them off and give them a good spray down and repair / rescreen as necessary
  • While you are checking out your windows & doors, now would be a good time to look at your foundation & brick walls – if you notice cracks or missing grout ***except at the very bottom of the wall – that is to allow water out*** get it repaired
  • Are your rooms super hot & the AC can’t seem to catch up – either schedule an Energy Audit, check to see if your attic has enough insulation, & check out more of our popular DIY articles on this subject
  • If you have not checked your gutters in a while, now would be a good time.
  • Trash Can’s – now would be a great time to wash them out & disinfect them
