Yard maintenance. Reseal cracks in concrete areas. Power-wash the exterior. Clean and align gutters and downspouts. Clean the chimney. Remove oil stains from driveway and garage. Sweep walks and driveway.  Wash windows. Thoroughly clean the interior. Repair damage to all indoor surfaces. Repair drippy faucets and showerheads. Unclog slow drains. Shampoo carpets, scrub and wax linoleum and wood floors. Clean out the fireplace. Mend or replace torn screens. Clean out window tracks. Replace burned-out light bulbs.
