Preparing for June: A Post-Memorial Day Guide

Written by A. Borrelli Mechanical on 05.23.24


As the Memorial Day weekend wraps up, we find ourselves on the cusp of June. The long weekend likely provided a much-needed break and a chance to honor those who have served our country. Now, it’s time to shift gears and prepare our homes and backyards for the vibrant summer months ahead. Here are some tips to help you transition smoothly from spring to summer.

Deep Clean Your Home

After the Memorial Day festivities, a thorough cleaning is essential to start June on a fresh note.

Declutter and Organize:

Living Areas: Clear out any clutter that has accumulated over the weekend. Organize magazines, books, and remote controls. Dust and vacuum all surfaces to remove any lingering pollen and dust.

Bedrooms: Wash all linens and vacuum under the beds. Consider rotating your mattress and flipping it if it’s dual-sided.

Bathrooms: Clean and disinfect sinks, toilets, and showers. Refresh your towels and bath mats.

Kitchen Refresh:

Appliances: Clean out the fridge and dispose of any expired items. Wipe down all appliances, including the oven and microwave.

Counters and Cabinets: Clear off countertops and organize your pantry. Wipe down cabinet doors and handles.

Prepare Your HVAC System

With warmer temperatures on the horizon, ensuring your HVAC system is in top shape is crucial for maintaining a comfortable home.

Schedule a Professional Maintenance Check:

At A. Borrelli HVAC and Mechanical, our experts can perform a comprehensive check of your HVAC system. This includes cleaning filters, checking for any leaks, and ensuring the system is operating efficiently.

DIY Maintenance:

Filters: Replace or clean air filters to improve air quality and system efficiency.

Vents: Ensure all vents are clean and unobstructed to allow for optimal airflow.

Get Your Backyard Summer-Ready

Your backyard will likely be the hub of activity during the summer months. Preparing it now will ensure it’s a welcoming space for relaxation and entertainment.


Mowing and Trimming: Mow the lawn and trim any overgrown bushes or trees. Consider planting summer flowers or adding fresh mulch to your garden beds.

Weeding: Pull weeds from flower beds and garden areas to promote healthy plant growth.

Outdoor Furniture:

Clean and Inspect: Wash down outdoor furniture and check for any repairs that might be needed. Consider adding cushions or updating existing ones for a fresh look.

Arrange for Comfort: Set up seating areas that encourage relaxation and socializing. Don’t forget to create some shaded spots using umbrellas or awnings.

Grill and Outdoor Kitchen:

Clean the Grill: Give your grill a deep clean to remove any residue from previous use. Check propane levels or charcoal supplies to ensure you’re ready for summer barbecues.

Organize Cooking Supplies: Keep grilling tools, seasonings, and utensils neatly organized and within easy reach.

Plan for Summer Activities

Finally, take some time to plan out your summer activities. Having a plan in place will help you make the most of the sunny days ahead.

Family Calendar:

Mark important dates such as family vacations, local festivals, and community events.

Stock Up on Essentials:

Ensure you have a good supply of sunscreen, bug spray, and other summer necessities.

Outdoor Games and Gear:

Check that sports equipment, bicycles, and pool toys are in good condition and easily accessible.

By taking these steps, you’ll be well-prepared to welcome June and enjoy all the wonderful experiences that summer brings. Remember, at A.
