Summer Home Maintenance Checklist For Your West Texas Home

Updated: Oct 17, 2022

No matter what you hear, there’s no such thing as a maintenance-free home in West Texas. Your home is manageable to maintain when you break it down month by month.

To help, here’s your July Home Maintenance Checklist.

1. Wipe down porch lights, replace blown-out bulbs, and use glass cleaner to freshen up your home’s exterior entryway.

2. Get rid of washer build-up with a cup of diluted bleach or white vinegar in the drum. For the dryer, remove and wash the lint screen—especially if you use dryer sheets.

3. Wipe down and clean baseboards, doors, and light switches.

4. Clean garbage disposal by sprinkling a half-cup of baking soda and one cup of white vinegar in the disposal. Allow it to sit for 10 minutes before flushing it down the drain.

5. Drain your water heater to flush out any sediment that could be affecting your heater’s


6. Wash pet beds, pet toys, travel carriers, etc.

7. Replace worn-out or dirty entry rugs.

8. Inspect fencing and gates around your home and make repairs as needed.

9. Plan your fall vegetable garden. My recommendations? Root vegetables and pumpkins!

Remember, home maintenance doesn’t have to be overwhelming! Just do a little bit each month, be proud of yourself, then move on to bigger and better things!

NOTE - If you’re planning on selling and are in the market for a top agent to make it happen, I would love to help!
