Here are a few monthly maintenance tips to tackle in the hot and steamy month of August:
✅ Take advantage of August’s long days to finish any outdoor projects you may have started this summer. Don’t forget to tend to your lawn and gardens to keep them looking beautiful and lush!
✅ Check your washing machine connections and dryer vent. Ensure water supply hoses connected to your washing machine are in good condition. Dryer vents must be checked and cleaned regularly (at least once every 12 months) to enhance the dryer’s efficiency and prevent fire hazards. Don’t forget to clean the lint trap after each load, too!

✅ Clean and maintain bathroom exhaust fans. Bathroom fans help to remove doors, excess moisture, and airborne contaminants. It is important to clean them regularly (every six months), so they are in good working order and to help prevent mold and mildew. Click here for tips on how to maintain your bathroom fan.
✅ Last but not least, enjoy the nice weather before it’s gone!
