Spring Is Here! Easy Ways To Get Your Home Ready For The Sunshine
So, while you may fear the words “Spring Clean”, now really is the time to get your home ready for the upcoming hot summer months.
It’s easy to put off some tasks that you’ve been dreading all winter, but the key is to prepare and plan. Make a list of what needs to be done and rank them by priority. This will help you get the big things out of the way and give you a chance to book any professionals that you need- well in advance before they book out.
Get Rid Of Mould In Your Driveway
The damp winter months would not have been kind to your driveway. Algae can grow due to the wet season weather conditions and frequently occurs in damp areas.
Moss or lichen can also grow in this dampness, harming your driveway's surface by damaging the seal coat or causing any cracks to expand.
Concrete is also a great incubator for mould. Wet, humid weather with warm temperatures only improves mould growing conditions.
These occurrences can make your driveways and walkways slippery and dangerous, which is why you need to ensure you thoroughly get rid of any growth as soon as possible.
While you can aggressively scrub the affected areas, you do need to make sure you are able to get right in the cracks and ensure all mould is killed. The best solution is to high pressure clean the whole area, for your peace of mind.
Keep Your Pool Sparkling Clean
Over Winter we understand that maintaining your pool has probably been the last thing on your mind!
Unfortunately, this means when it gets to Spring, you are left with a pool full of leaves and dull water- which is not what you want as the weather heats up and you’re ready to dive in.
Now is the time to:
Skim the surface of the water to remove leaves and debris
Brush the bottom and sides of the pool
Check filter and water circulation
Ensure chemicals are at the correct levels
Make sure throughout Spring and Summer you continue to keep the filter clean, use a pool vacuum and regularly test the pool chemicals.
Is Your Outdoor Area Ready to Party?
Entertaining in your outdoor area is such an important part of an Australian Summer, so it’s time to make sure it is in top shape.
Some easy ways to do this is to mow your lawns, remove weeds, check your reticulation, prune your trees and check the ceiling of your pergola or patio for any cobwebs or dust.
A high pressure clean of your outdoor area pavement is another way you can ensure that impressively clean look for guests.
Paving & Sealing Perth
If your driveway, outdoor area paving or the pavers around your pool has seen better days, perhaps paving or sealing is the solution for you.
Most forms of paving are porous and unfortunately can succumb to stains caused by moss, mould and oil. Quality, hard wearing and long-lasting sealing completed by a professional is just what you need to get rid of those stubborn stains.
Applying the sealer incorrectly can result in ineffective protection and quite simply look terrible and be very expensive to fix. A quality paving and sealing job can completely transform the look of your outdoor area. See before and afters of paving and sealing and driveway transformations here.
Don’t Forget About Your Gutters
Look, we know cleaning your gutter is a tough and messy job! The autumn and winter stormy weather has probably has caused a clog up of leaves and twigs in your gutters, obstructing the flow of water.
We recommend you clean your roof and gutters at least twice a year - once before the winter weather sets in and again just before Summer (especially if you live in a bushfire risk area).
Chuck some gloves on and check your gutters for debris. You should also high pressure clean in the downspout to ensure it has a clear path.
It can be very dangerous to climb on a ladder yourself to do this, so we suggest enlisting the roof cleaning professionals.
Get The Essentials Ready for Summer
Australian’s love to entertain outside, and why wouldn’t we when we are blessed with such warm weather! We suggest you stock up on sunscreen, aloe, insect repellent and pool towels.
You should also give your barbeque a deep clean before firing it up for the first time.
