Expert Tips For Opening Up the Cottage

by Lina Alviar, Home Comfort Advisor at Reliance Home Comfort

Warmer temperatures and longer days can only mean one thing: Ontario’s long-awaited cottage season is just around the corner and we are breathing a sigh of relief!

But before slipping on the sandals and slapping on the sunscreen, we’ve outlined some key checklist items to ensure your serene summer hideaway is primed and ready for relaxation.

Survey Your Surroundings: Ontario’s wicked spring weather (we’re looking at you, ice storm!)  may have wreaked havoc on the area around your cottage. Be sure to survey your surroundings for any downed or damaged power lines and call your local hydro company to handle any repairs. Trim unruly tree branches away from the property and clear out any debris.

Water Watch:  Check your water lines for any obvious signs of damage from the off-season.  Fill your hot water tank before turning on the power to avoid damaging the element. Monitor for leaks and contact a professional if you suspect a problem.

Appliance Check: Inspect all appliance wires and cords for signs of fraying or damage. Shut-off power before reconnecting any appliances that were unplugged during the winter months to prevent a surge.

Safety First: Test all smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors at the outset of the season and replace batteries as needed. Place a fully stocked first aid kit and charged fire extinguisher in an accessible location.

Moisture Watch: Inspect window sills, doorways and floors for any signs of moisture build-up or mold. Wear protective clothing if handling yourself and contact a specialist if required.

Taking the time to inspect your cottage at the start of cottage season can prevent needless headaches and costly expenses when you’d rather be relaxing. Be sure to follow the above steps so everyone can enjoy carefree weekends all summer long!
