Summer is a time for vacations and relaxing, but neglecting things around the house can lead to major problems.
Here are a few costly mistakes that homeowners make.
Not focusing on pest prevention
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Americans spend between $1 billion and $2 billion on termite control and repairs. Many homeowners wait until they see a problem pest before they call a professional. Waiting to call a pest professional until you see a problem can often times be costly. Consult a pest control company for a thorough inspection and prevention plan to keep any and all bugs off your property. Don’t wait until it’s too late; have your home inspected right away.
Neglecting your air conditioners
Perhaps the only thing more annoying and horrifying than a pest infestation is a busted AC unit during the dog days of summer. Make sure that you regularly take a look at each of your AC units to see if anything strange is happening. If you notice any weird sounds or smells, or if it’s just not working as well as it should, get professional help right away. If you want to have that relaxing summer that you deserve, you’re going to need a working AC unit or two, so get them fixed.
Forgetting about your gutters
In the months before summer leaves and debris might’ve accumulated inside your gutters. If you don’t thoroughly clean out your gutters every few months, you run the risk of your home sustaining serious damage. Contact a professional if you need help cleaning your gutters but the sooner you clean them the better!
Don’t let your summer end expensive home repairs and dealing with bugs running around. Get your gutters cleaned, have your AC units inspected, and contact a trusted pest control company right away!
