How to prepare your home for summer

The summer season is here already, and your mind is probably on switching summer clothes with winter clothes, planning vacations, hosting barbecues, and lounging at the beach while soaking your skin under the sun. Good plans, but have you thought about your home? Accidents? Damages? Burglaries? Well, summer weather can be pretty extreme, especially in Cypress, TX. Is your home ready for the heat? To help you get your home in tip-top shape, InsureUS shares four tips for preparing your home.

Clean drains and gutters

Cleaning drains and gutters are the last things anyone would want to do before summer. But, ironically, it’s one of the most important tasks that should top your list as it involves clearing the debris and mud that can clog the drains. If ignored, the result is a leaking wall or roof. Gutter cleaning helps lower water damage risks.

Check your air conditioner

The spring season is often associated with favorable temperatures, and you may not need to use the AC. However, you may want to use this opportunity to tune up your air conditioner and ensure everything is working perfectly  before the temperatures shoot up. Clean and replace the air filters for efficient functioning. When the air conditioner works well, a considerable amount of power is saved.

Inspect your yard

Your yard will be a valuable space, especially if you enjoy outdoor activities. So it’s probably time you revisited your landscaping ideas. Most of the winter trees may have been damaged during the storms, but they can be saved. Go through your to-do list before calling a landscaper or arborist to inspect your trees.

Update your home insurance

Don’t forget to check your home insurance. Remember you will be home for a very long time. So, make sure you have enough coverage to protect you against lawsuits and other accidents.
