Father’s Day is right around the corner which means it’s time to start thinking about the perfect gift to get. Many times, the greatest gift you can give your father is simply spending time with him. Helping dad around the house is a great way to show your appreciation for everything he does while simultaneously enjoying some great quality time. Even something as simple as being there to hold the ladder can make a world of difference. We’ve put together a few ways you can celebrate your dad this Father’s Day by helping to take care of some of his usual chores around the house.
Change HVAC Filters
It’s recommended that you change all of the air filters in your home every 60 days. This helps ensure that the filters are working properly to remove dirt, dust, and allergens from the air. Changing these filters isn’t a hard task, but it can make a big difference when you make an effort to change all of the filters and mark them off dad’s to-do list.
Test Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Routine testing of the smoke and carbon monoxide detectors in your home can be a literal lifesaver. Help dad out by walking around your home and checking that all detectors are working and have full batteries. This will help give everyone in the family peace of mind knowing that everything is working properly.
Check Plumbing and Fix Any Leaks
Ignoring any leaks or damaged plumbing can lead to a much more expensive disaster down the road. Even a small crack in a pipe is worth fixing right away to prevent a future problem. Having two sets of eyes when checking all of the plumbing can make a big difference in identifying any potential issues.
Help Out with Landscaping
Doing any yard work in the unbearable heat of the summer isn’t a fun task for anyone. Take some of the load off of your dad’s landscaping chores and help out by mowing, trimming bushes, weed eating, and more.
Show your dad some appreciation this Father’s Day for all the hard work he does around the house by helping him out with some of his usual chores and tasks around the home. Not only will you be able to spend quality time with him while working, but tackling some of the handiwork will make the chores go by much quicker, giving you more time to spend with your dad.
