Home Maintenance To-Do List
Does your to-do list look a little like this?
- Cleaning gutters
- Pressure washing the siding of your home
- Cleaning gutters AGAIN after leaves have fallen
- Seal doors to prevent drafts in the cooler months
- Maintaining decking such as checking for rotting wood or loose screws, etc.
- Mowing the lawn
Most of these tasks are time-consuming and can be challenging, especially if you have to climb up a ladder twice a year to clear out your gutters. No thanks!
Imagine not having to worry about these tasks so much or at least finding some solutions to decrease the time each takes. Well, we have some good news for you!
Here’s how to reduce the time spent on, or even eliminate some of these pesky to-do tasks from your list!
Spring, Summer, and Fall Solutions
Here are a few ways to cut down on home exterior maintenance throughout the seasons!
Cut Down on Gutter Maintenance
The easiest and most effective way to cut down on having to clean your gutters is to install our patented Rhino Gutter Guards. By installing gutter guards, you can almost eliminate the need for seasonal exterior gutter cleaning.
The most maintenance that gutter guards will require is an occasional brushing or spraying off of the debris that remains on top of the wire mesh guard. To help with debris shedding, our gutter guards were designed to have an embossed texture that minimizes the surface area and effectively deters debris! Anything left over can be easily brushed off, but this is often taken care of for one when an afternoon rainstorm comes through.
Plus, our gutter guards are made from stainless-steel micro mesh, so they won’t rust in our Florida heat and humidity!
Just think about it…No leaves, pine needles, and other debris clogging up your gutters mean that you can forgo the trip up the ladder each spring and fall. What will you do with all that extra time?!

Consider installing a metal or fiberglass door as these materials are extremely durable and low maintenance. They also offer a weather-tight fit that will keep out water and air leaks. See another task checked off your to-do list!
Ongoing To-Do List Solutions
Instead of fixing and having to maintain a wooden deck or patio, you might want to consider composite decking. This material has a sort of plastic wood-like finish, and it is made from plastic and sawdust. It requires no staining, paint, or sanding, and won’t splinter or rot, thus eliminating deck maintenance and repairs. Yes! Another item checked off!
Mowing the Lawn
Have you ever considered an alternative to a traditional lawn? Artificial turf grass virtually eliminates mowing and lawn maintenance. Although artificial grass can take a bit of an investment upfront, the time and money saved on watering and mowing your lawn may make it worth considering!
Say Goodbye to Gutter Maintenance
We know home maintenance can be time-consuming and frustrating, especially in the Florida heat! With a few easy changes, like installing Rhino Gutter Guards you can significantly decrease your home maintenance routine.
