Whether it’s swimsuits or an abundance of clothes, someone in the family is probably always going to need laundry done. Make sure you visually inspect the hoses and machine. The life of a rubber washing machine hose is about 3 years, so yours might need to be changed!

Save Energy
If you’re planning on leaving for vacation, turn your water heater down to save energy.  The average life of a water heater is roughly 8-11 years. Check to make sure your water heater is ready for the summer and doesn’t need to be replaced.

Be Aware of Humidity
Summer means moisture, and this can cause clogged drains, backups, or potential leaks from your pipes. Problems can be found in water spots on your ceiling. By checking and catching this issue quickly, it can prevent a major repair. 

Protect your Garbage Disposal
Summer brings grills and summer parties- remember your garbage disposal can’t handle too much at once! Anything that’s sticky, thick, or stringy can cause the blades to overwork and break, such as cornhusks and hamburger grease. Remove any blockage when possible and be careful what you are putting in your garbage disposal.
