Now is the time to start summer home care. Summertime offers a great opportunity to make the most of sunny weekends. Why not set aside some time to perform a little home care? Don’t let the summer heat kill your lawn, keep it watered, preferably in the early morning or evening after the sun goes down. Now is the perfect time to have your carpets professionally cleaned, or rent a quality carpet cleaner and do it yourself. You can also have your furniture steam cleaned. Inspect your home inside and out and touch up the paint where needed. Check all locks, windows and doors and assure they are working properly. Oil anything that has been squeaking. Clean out your garage and get rid of unwanted clutter, either have a yard sale or donate goods to a local charity. De Hart Plumbing, serving Manhattan Kansas, Junction City Kansas and Wamego Kansas.
