Termite & Pest control

Nothing can ruin a backyard barbeque like a yard full of anthills, and nothing ruins a good night’s sleep like going to bed at night thinking that termites are chewing through the joists of your most valuable investment.

Schedule your next pest control or termite service now and be prepared for the warm weather and all the pests that come along with it.


Ned Home Summer Maint Landscape

While this isn’t technically home maintenance, we recommend ensuring that your yard is in good shape. Why? If you need some landscaping work, now’s the time to take care of it early in the year. If the drainage situation in your yard needs work, better to take care of it ASAP rather than having a soggy, boggy backyard this summer.

Inspect Sprinklers

Similarly, you don’t want your grass to die off and your yard to become a barren desert wasteland, either. If your home has a sprinkler system, make sure to inspect it— you need to know that your sprinklers will work when and where you need them. If you live in an area where there are watering restrictions, consider collecting water in rain barrels as well as collecting excess water indoors to use for watering your outdoor plants. One great way to do this is to put a bucket in your shower— while you wait for the water to warm up, collect this water in a bucket rather than wasting it. Your plant friends will thank you later!

Repair screens

We mentioned bugs and pests before. Well, your screens are your first line of defense against all kinds of pests in the summer. If you want to enjoy your time on the patio, make sure that your screens are in tact so that you can relax without a face full of gnats or mosquitoes!

Air conditioning service

When July comes, the last thing you want to do on a 98 degree day is call an air conditioner repair guy. Chances are, they’ll be booked for a month solid. Do yourself, your pets and your family a favor and have your A/C inspected early. You’ll give yourself a pat on the back when you’re enjoying a refreshing beverage in your den while your neighbor down the street sits in front of a fan blowing against a block of ice to cool the unbearably hot room.

Inspect shingles

Your shingles are essential to the health of your roof, and your roof is essential to the health of your home.
