While the weather outside may feel like summer already, we’ve still got a bit farther to go—which is perfect for those of us who aren’t quite ready for school to let out and summer entertaining to begin! Below, we will be sharing a few easy ways to get your home ready for the summer months ahead.
Stock up on sunscreen
If you pick up anything at the store in anticipation of the summer months ahead, let it be sunscreen! If you have a family who loves to spend time in the pool and around the backyard, you can be sure you’ll go through several bottles—so stock up now.
Arrange for pool cleaning
If you don’t already have a regular pool cleaning service, now is a great time to sign up for one. A clear blue pool is one you, your family and friends will want to jump into at the end of the day—and having a regular cleaning schedule ensures that you never have to worry about tidying it up beforehand.
Pack away winter clothes
We may not get long, extreme winters here in Florida, but we all have our share of comfy winter clothes. However, now with the cooler months far behind, it’s a good time to pack away your thicker coats and scarves for the time being. You’ll be able to save space in the process, making room for the lighter summer clothes perfect for this time of year.
Revive your outdoor kitchen
Has your outdoor kitchen seen better days? In most cases, it’s nothing a thorough cleanup can’t fix. Clean and stock up your outdoor kitchen to get it ready for days by the pool or outdoor dining with friends.
Check your air conditioning
If you’re worried about the efficiency of your home air conditioning, you can have it inspected to see if everything’s working well or if there’s room for improvement. By taking care of potential issues now, you’ll be poised to enjoy a summer full of warm outdoor fun—and blasts of cool air whenever you step inside.
Simplify your outdoor fun
Like many homeowners, you probably plan to enjoy your pool and backyard to the fullest this summer. Simplify your outdoor fun by keeping frequently used items like towels, sunscreen and small pool toys stored in a convenient place (like a bathroom that’s adjacent to the pool area, for example). For larger items, you can use hooks on your exterior walls or outdoor toy bins for easy storage at the end of the day.
We hope that these ideas help make your summer here in Daytona Beach even better. Whether you’re traveling or staying close to home, you know you’ll always have a relaxing retreat of your own to return to.
