Change Your Air Filter
Change your air filter before summer in order to help keep your A/C operating efficiently and keeping the air in your home cleaner.
Inspect Your Roof
The roof is your home’s defense against nature’s elements. The sun, wind, rain, and snow can all damage your roof over time. It is in your best interest to have your roof inspected prior to the start of summer. If you fix a deteriorating roof early on, you can avoid a costly repair bill in the future.
Inspect Your Swimming Pool

This means that you should clean up anything that could hurt bare feet, including glass and sharp rocks. You will need to make sure that the water is inspected and safe. Also, place rescue and safety equipment where it belongs.
Clean Any Bird Baths
Make sure that you clean out your bird baths before the summer so that the surrounding birds can have a refreshing time throughout the hot months.

Termites, ants, and roaches can wreak havoc on your home and they are widespread during the summertime. You should absolutely schedule a pest control inspection before the summer to ensure that your home remains in one piece.
