6 Jobs To Do Before Summer



1. Indoor Painting



While indoor decorating may seem like a winter activity, there are numerous advantages to tackling projects like painting, tiling, and decorating inside the house during the summer months.



Better Visibility


Longer daylight hours provide ample natural light, allowing for improved visibility while painting. This ensures that you can see details more clearly and achieve better results.



Faster Drying Times


Warmer temperatures and increased ventilation during the summer help paints, sealants, and grouts dry more quickly. This means you can complete your painting projects in less time and with fewer interruptions.





With the ability to keep windows and doors open during the summer, you can ensure proper ventilation while painting. This helps dissipate any chemical odours from paints and solvents, creating a more comfortable and breathable indoor environment.





Summer weather often encourages outdoor activities, making it an ideal time to tackle indoor painting projects. You can take advantage of warmer temperatures to work comfortably without worrying about cold drafts or heating expenses.

2. Clean your drains and gutters



Summer typically brings dry weather, making it easier to clean gutters and drains without contending with rain or wet conditions. This allows for more effective removal of debris and buildup, reducing the risk of blockages and water damage.



Over the winter and spring, leaves, branches, and other debris can accumulate in gutters and drains, leading to blockages. By cleaning them in the summer, you can prevent blockages from occurring and ensure proper drainage during heavy rainstorms.



Clogged gutters and drains can become breeding grounds for pests such as mosquitoes, ants, and rodents. Cleaning them regularly in the summer helps eliminate potential nesting sites and reduces the risk of pest infestations around your home.








3. Tidy your Shed or Garage



Summer presents an ideal opportunity to tackle the organisation of your garage or shed. With longer daylight hours and warmer weather, you can comfortably sort through belongings and declutter these spaces. Take inventory of items, sorting them into categories and deciding what to keep, donate, or discard. Maximise storage efficiency by installing shelves, hooks, or cabinets to store tools, equipment, and seasonal items neatly. Consider implementing a labeling system to easily locate items in the future. Additionally, take advantage of the dry weather to address any maintenance tasks, such as repairing or repainting surfaces, ensuring your garage or shed remains a functional and organised space year-round.\

After enduring the harsh conditions of winter weather, it’s essential to give your garden furniture some much-needed attention. Take the opportunity to clean and tidy up your outdoor furniture, removing any accumulated dirt, grime, or debris.

Ensure that all pieces of furniture are sturdy and properly assembled, addressing any loose screws or wobbly joints to prevent accidents and ensure longevity.
