Quick Tips

Make sure your air conditioners, water heaters and fuse boxes are in tip-top shape. Keep track of filters that need to be replaced.  

Prepare for the worst — just in case. Ensure fire alarms are working properly and keep a fire extinguisher on hand.

Don’t forget about the exterior.  Pools need cleaning and lawns need landscaping, too.
