The Height of Summer!

Please remember to stay up to date with these annual maintenance items to keep your home clean and safe:
• Get your dryer vents cleaned. Call Brandon Daugherty with AKD Enterprises at 351-6424 for an estimate.
• Check your smoke detectors! For more information about fire safety in Anchorage check out http://dps.alaska.gov/fire/
• Clean out your fridge! Check items for expiration dates and sanitize the surfaces.
• From the ground, examine roof shingles to see if any were lost or damaged during winter. If your home has an older roof covering, you may want to start a budget for replacement. Shingles that are cracked, buckled or loose or are missing granules need to be replaced. Flashing around plumbing vents, skylights and chimneys need to be checked and repaired by a qualified roofer.
• Low areas in the yard or next to the foundation should be filled with compacted soil. Spring rains can cause yard flooding, which can lead to foundation flooding and damage. Also, when water pools in these low areas in summer, it creates a breeding ground for insects. It is always smart to check your crawlspaces for water or rodents.
• Check for loose or leaky gutters. Improper drainage can lead to water in the basement or crawl space. Make sure downspouts drain away from the foundation and are clear and free of debris.
• Keep the yards mowed! It is the homeowner responsibility to mow the front and back yards. If you need assistance please let Snow’s know!
• Make sure there is no outside storage around your unit.
