Maintenance for your Mount Dora Home this May

Fri, May 01, 2015 at 11:39AM

It's finally May! Now is the time that we all want to spend our free time outside! Unfortunately, owning a home means keeping up the maintenance of your property. These quick tips will help you stay up to date with your home, leaving you more time to go outside and spend time with your friends and family!

  1. Examine Your Roof Shingles. Make sure none are missing from the colder months. If your roof is looking like it needs some TLC, you may want to start a budget for replacement. You want to pay close attention to your shingles now as the summer months can put wear and tear on them, and we know you don’t want to replace your shingles in the heat of Florida’s summer!
  2. Inspect Your Yard. Be sure to fill in any low areas in your yard or near the foundation of your home with compacted soil. Florida’s rain can cause flooding, which can lead to foundation damage. Also the water that collects in these areas will become a breeding ground for insects over the summer.
  3. Fill Your Cracks. Inspect concrete slabs for any signs of cracks or movement. You can fill the cracks with filler or silicone caulk. If weather works on your side, you can power-wash your house’s exterior and then seal the concrete. Make sure that exterior slabs should drain away from your foundation.
  4. Call A Professional. Have a qualified Heating and Air Contractor clean and service your unit outside. By calling early, you will save yourself time and money as clean coils operate more efficiently. Don’t forget to change interior filters on a regular basis!
  5. Check Your Equipment. Make sure that your gas- and battery-powered lawn equipment is ready for this summer. By having your equipment clean and sharp blades, your yardwork will go much smoother.

While you will want to spend every free moment outside having fun, don’t neglect your Mount Dora home by not taking care of it! These 5 easy steps will make your transition into the summer months smooth and easy. Once you’re done with these steps, you can spend the rest of your month hanging out with friends and family in your yard.
