10 Summer Checklist Items for Your HOA Community

 

The days are getting longer and the weather is getting hot! If you’re like most communities, you’re probably already thinking about all the ways you can make your HOA more inviting and enjoyable for residents.

 

To help you get started, we’ve put together a list of 10 summer to-do list items for your Association:

 

1.) Inspect and repair all outdoor common area lighting fixtures

With longer daylight hours, now is a good time to check that all your community’s outdoor lighting fixtures are in working order. This includes making sure that all bulbs are replaced and that the fixtures are properly secured.

 

2.) Pressure wash all common area sidewalks and parking areas

Warmer weather means more people will be spending time outdoors. To ensure that your community is ready for visitors, pressure wash all common area sidewalks and parking areas. This will help to remove any dirt, grime, or debris that has accumulated over the winter months.

 

3.) Clean and inspect all common area furniture

Outdoor furniture takes a beating from the elements, so it’s important to give it a good cleaning at the start of summer. This will help to extend the life of your furniture and keep it looking its best.

 

4.) Clean and inspect all playground equipment

If your HOA community has playground equipment, now is a good time to give it a thorough inspection and cleaning. This will help to ensure that the equipment is safe for use and that there are no sharp edges or other hazards.

 

5.) Inspect and repair fencing

Fences can also suffer from damage due to the elements. Inspect all of your community’s fences and make any necessary repairs before summer begins. This will help to keep your fences looking their best and prevent any accidents.

 

6.) Trim all trees and shrubs

Overgrown trees and shrubs can pose a hazard to your community. Make sure to trim them back before summer begins. This will help to keep your community looking neat and tidy and prevent any potential accidents.

 

7.) Clean and inspect all common area grills

If your HOA community has outdoor grills, now is a good time to give them a thorough cleaning. This will help to ensure that the grills are safe for use and that there is no build-up of grease or food.

 

8.) Clean and inspect all pools and hot tubs

10.) Meet with landscaping team to be sure common areas look their best

Summer is a good time to schedule professional landscaping services to keep your HOA community looking its best. This can include things like mowing the lawn, trimming trees and shrubs, and planting flowers. By keeping up with your community’s landscaping, you are helping to boost curb appeal and create a more inviting environment.
