How to Maintain Your Mobile Home During Summer

With summer in full swing, maintenance of your mobile home is more important than ever. By taking the proper steps, you can prevent damage and keep repair costs low. You can also safeguard your investment and ensure you love every aspect of your home. Here are a few essential maintenance steps that you must not ignore this summer.

Wash Awnings

Awnings are great for providing some much-needed shade when lounging around outdoors. However, they can really take a beating during the summer months, especially when they become soiled by dust or debris. You can clean all types of awnings, including metal and canvas, with a garden hose and mild dish detergent. If you must climb a ladder to access the awning, make sure a friend or family member is there to keep it stable.

Apply a Cool Roof Coat

Maintaining a cool interior temperature in your home ensures your air conditioner can function efficiently. It can also save you money on cooling costs since the reflective coat will repel sunlight away from your home instead of absorbing it. Finally, cool roof coatings also preserve your mobile home, which can potentially be damaged by long-term sun exposure.

Clean the Exterior and Interior

A deep cleaning your home interior improves appearance, but it can also have an impact on indoor air quality. On the other hand, cleaning the exterior prevents dust, dirt, and grime from accumulating on the body and potentially causing issues. While you’re cleaning windows and doors, check the weather stripping surrounding them for defects. If you find any, replace it as soon as possible.
