I see more and more homeowners investing in outdoor living areas, and enjoying staycations with friends and family, relaxing in the spaces they’ve created.
Fairhope, AL (PRWEB) June 14, 2016
Danny Lipford, host of Today’s Homeowner, kicked off the summer edition of his “4 Seasons of Home Ownership” campaign earlier today with a nationally-televised satellite media event. Lipford revealed the second installment for the brand’s ultimate guide to caring for the home, delivering the must-do, could-do and should-do summertime tasks for every homeowner. A broadcast-ready clip is available for download and media use here.
Broadcasting live from Fairhope, AL, Lipford connected with television and radio hosts nationwide discussing the top chores homeowners need to tackle now to get ready for summer fun and relaxation. “Nothing boosts a home’s curb appeal like a good, thorough cleaning,” he says. “Homeowners will be amazed at how fresh and inviting their homes look after cutting through the residue left behind from winter and spring.” Lipford kicked off the event discussing items that should be on everyone’s to-do list this time of year, including:
- Cleaning the home’s exterior and outdoor living areas. Lipford introduced viewers to the Pivot Pro cleaning wand from HYDE that makes exterior cleaning a breeze with its versatile features.
- Inspecting different systems and areas of the home for safety such as deck boards and railings, fencing and gates, outdoor grills and fireplace chimneys.
- Keeping the air conditioning system in good shape by flushing out the drain line and replacing filters.
- Maintaining the lawn and landscaping by pulling all weeds and adding mulch and supplements as needed.
In addition to the “4 Seasons of Home Ownership” summer basics, Lipford recommended several projects homeowners can take on if they have additional time such as cleaning air registers and fan grilles, deodorizing the garbage disposal, and inspecting for and repairing any cracks in foundations, patios and driveways.
Lipford rounded out the event with suggestions for homeowners wanting to enhance and add amenities to their homes for summer. “I hear from a lot of homeowners who are choosing staycations over traditional vacations these days,” says Lipford. “They’re investing in outdoor living areas, and really enjoying spending time with friends and family relaxing in the spaces they’ve created.” He recommended several projects that provide both enjoyment for the homeowner, and long-term value and appeal such as:
- Adding fresh landscaping.
- Creating a new seating area, fire pit or cooking station using simple pavers. Lipford showed viewers some of the brand-new SplitRock pavers from Pavestone that can be stacked and used in a variety of configurations. With no mortar or cutting needed, homeowners can upgrade a backyard or patio in no time.
- Replacing or adding outdoor lighting.
- Giving the front door a makeover with fresh stain or a bold coat of paint.
- Hanging new house numbers for a clean and polished look.
