Here's a summer home checklist from Home Service Reports (courtesy of Foremost Insurance Group) to make sure your home is up to par during these upcoming summer months.

  • Change or clean HVAC air filters.
  • Have septic tank inspected (if applicable).
  • Make sure the lateral sewer lines are inspected and cleared.
  • Inspect all surfaces around your home such as driveways, sidewalks, patios, bricks, stone and concrete for cracks and repair as needed
  • Inspect decks, steps, and wooden structures for wood rot, and other damage. Repair as soon as possible.
  • Weatherproof all wooden surfaces if it has been over 2 years since you last did so.
  • Check eaves around your home's roof and remove insect nest.
  • Test ground-fault circuit interrupters around your home.
  • Inspect washer hoses and vent system.
  • Remove hair from all drains and use the proper drain cleaner for your system.
