Summer Home Maintenance
Summer Home Maintenance
THE TOP 10 OUTDOOR TASKS YOU SHOULD COMPLETE THIS SUMMER.
Now that the sun is shining, home improvement projects are on.
Power-wash the outside of your home.
The heat and humidity can cause mold and mildew to grow faster on your home’s exterior. Use a power washer with a mildew remover compatible with your siding.
Cleaning the Gutters
Gutter-cleaning should be part of your summer and fall checklist, but it’s also wise to clear your gutters out before a heavy summer storm hits to get rid of any clogs that may have built up.
Sealing the Driveway
Your driveway will last longer if you seal it regularly. When you factor in curing time, this project takes three to four days, so check the forecast before you begin to ensure you'll have a few consecutive days of good weather.
Sealing the Deck
Constant exposure to sun and rain takes a toll on your deck’s appearance. Plan sometime during the summer to spruce up your deck by making any necessary repairs, giving it a good cleaning, and sealing it.
Repaint your Fence
Fence-painting can be tedious and time-consuming, but attending to this outdoor maintenance task will keep your fence looking sharp and make it last longer.
Grease the Garage Door
To keep your automatic garage door running properly, ensure everything is tight and lubricate the hinges, rollers, and other moving parts at least once a year.
Repair your Walkway
Whether your walkway is concrete, pavers, or stepping-stones, take some time to rehab and repair it in summer when you're more likely to have several consecutive days of fair weather.
Schedule a cleaning for your HVAC system
Ensure that the fan is functioning well, the coils are clean, and there isn’t faulty wiring that could cause a fire. Don’t forget to change your filter.
Inspect the roof and your home’s exterior and make repairs
Inspect beneath your eaves for loose debris that might have accumulated there. Whenever you see gunk or leaves, collect, and remove them. Next, inspect your roof’s flashing or metal strips typically found around chimneys, vents, satellite dishes, and skylights. It can loosen during a harsh rainstorm or hailstorm, causing potential water leakage.
Inspect your attic and basement
Check the basement and attic for evidence of pests, insects, water damage, mold, or mildew. Turn off the lights to check for any sign of peeking in daylight.

Are Your Carpets SERVPRO Cleaned?
How DIRTY are your carpets and floors? Where your children play with their toys and lie down to watch their favorite cartoon. Even the highest quality carpet and upholstery can show soiling over time. IICRC states that 70% of the soil in carpet is dry soil. Vacuuming is a key component to proper care and maintenance of carpet.
Preventative maintenance actions include:
- Regular vacuuming
- Spot removal
- Pilating the carpet to prevent matting
- Moving furniture to change traffic patterns
- Using walk-off mats to limit the amount of soil tracked onto the carpet
A good rule of thumb would be to clean your carpets every 12 months professionally.
So, If you need your carpets clean, make sure you call SERVPRO of Grand Junction 970-241-8181. When calling, be sure to have the estimated room sizes so they can calculate a price for you.

The basic minimum crawlspace cleanup should include removal of debris and all materials that are conductive to mold growth, especially if there is already mold or fungi on it. All crawlspaces should have a vapor barrier at the very least. Sealing all wood with an anti-microbial coating is optional except in cases of moderate to heavy mold growth.
2: COMPLETE (encapsulation)
In addition to the basic cleanup, all wood materials can be sealed with an anti-microbial coating. The foundation vents are closed off. Heavy duty vapor barrier or liner is installed from the top of the concrete stem walls and over the entire ground surface will all the seams sealed.
Ultrasonic cleaning in Grand Junction Colorado
SERVPRO of Grand Junction uses a Ultrasonic regularly!
Ultrasonic cleaners are used to clean many different types of objects, including jewelry, lenses and other optical parts, watches, dental and surgical instruments, tools, coins, fountain pens, golf clubs, fishing reels, window blinds, firearms, car fuel injectors, musical instruments, industrial parts and electronic equipment. Ultrasonic cleaning is a process that uses ultrasound (usually from 20–400 kHz) and an appropriate cleaning solvent (sometimes ordinary tap water) to clean items. The ultrasound can be used with just water, but use of a solvent appropriate for the item to be cleaned and the type of soiling present enhances the effect. Cleaning normally lasts between three and six minutes, but can also exceed 20 minutes, depending on the object to be cleaned.
