We are trying not to look ahead to the Autumn and Winter months just yet, but they will be here before we know it and with that in mind, there is some TLC you can show your home that is far easier to do while it is summer.
The reason for that is you are more likely to be able to take advantage of your garden, (British summertime weather dependent), and that will come in handy if you are at the stage where you think your home could do with a deep clean.
So, take a day, get yourself a carpet cleaner and move as much furniture into your garden as you can so that you don’t miss a single dust-filled spot in your home. We advise checking the weather before doing this, and even if its sunny it would be wise to have some tarpaulin ready to go, but you will have a much harder time getting this done when the cold, wet weather comes to stay.
You can tick a couple of cleaning jobs off at once here. Once the carpet is cleaned and drying, turn your attention to your upholstery and get those cushions and throw covers washed and cleaned – the furniture is already in the garden so it should all dry in no time if you’ve picked the right day for it.
But let’s not stop at the interior of the house, now is the perfect time to tackle the exterior too and that is not just weeds and other bits and bobs around the house, but also the roof. The summer months are the perfect time to get up there, or get someone else up there for you, to clean out all the gutters so you don’t run into problems because of it later in the year and into 2022.
And finally, the most important part – a barbecue. You’ve done all this work to make your home as presentable as it can be, so why not show it off by having your nearest and dearest over for a summer barbecue? It’s less fun to gather in the garden for food and drinks when it’s cold and raining and we are already in August – the sun will have waved goodbye to us all before we know it.
