Preparing Your Home For The Arizona Summer – The hot summer months are coming! Summer technically starts towards the end of June and goes through September. Before the summer season starts, it is a good idea to check in on your home maintenance and prepare for the hot summer months. Take a look at the list below for how you can prepare for summer.

The Exterior

The summer is the best time to get any paint touch-ups or repainting on your home exterior done. This is thanks to reliable and dry weather. Make sure you aren’t in the middle of a heat wave though!

Deep Clean Outdoor Appliances

Before summer rolls around you will want to take time to clean all of your outdoor appliances so you are ready to host. Consider your barbeque, smoker, and any outdoor furniture. Anything that you have not been using and is about to start using regularly.


The spring is the time to prepare and set your garden so it can flourish in the summer. Take time to care for your garden area. Clear any dead leaves, mow your lawn, and make sure your plants are well-watered. This will ensure a flourishing garden season. If you enjoy hosting others, your garden can be a great aesthetic for guests. It can take time for plants to revive, so start now.

Sprinkler System

To care for your garden, you need a great watering system. Sprinkler systems require maintenance and if your system isn’t in use much due to a wet winter, you may want to test it out. If for some reason you are noticing issues, it is a good idea to have it repaired before the hot summer months.

Maintain Your HVAC

The last thing you need us to get is the middle of summer and have your AC go out. This is one of the worst things that happen to homeowners. By regularly maintaining your HVAC system, you can catch any potential repair or replacement needed before a big heat wave. This is something you need to have done once or twice a year and you want it done by a licensed and professional HVAC company.

Look For Home Damage

As the weather permits, you want to take this time to look for any potential home damage. This is when your yearly or bi-yearly maintenance should take place. Think about your roof, gutters, siding, and any other big home components. You want to look for water damage and do your best to catch a potential issue early on so you can prevent mold growth. Mold is one of the biggest issues homeowners face and it thrives in the summer with the heat and damp, humid places in your home. Make sure your bathrooms and laundry room are well-ventilated.
