Summer is a vibrant and busy time for homeowners’ associations (HOAs) as residents take full advantage of shared amenities and outdoor spaces. 


Your board must take proactive maintenance before the heat goes into full gear to ensure your HOA or condominium association remains in top condition. 


Here are some common summer maintenance needs your association should prioritize to keep everything running smoothly and residents happy.

Pool Maintenance and Repairs

Maintaining the community pool is essential, especially during the scorching Texas summer when it becomes a hub of activity. 

Regular maintenance tasks are crucial to keep the pool operational and safe for all residents. This includes frequent inspections and repairs of pool equipment such as pumps, filters, heaters, and skimmers. Keeping these essentials in check will help prevent breakdowns during peak usage. 

Water quality management is equally important.  involving daily summer testing and adjustment of chemical levels.

Aside from testing, daily cleaning to remove debris and ensure a safe swimming environment is critical. 

Safety checks are also paramount, with regular verification that all safety equipment—including life rings, pool covers, and fencing—is in good condition and compliant with safety regulations. 

Prioritizing these maintenance tasks ensures the pool remains a refreshing and safe retreat for residents throughout the hot summer months.

Air Conditioning Systems

Maintaining comfortable indoor temperatures in common areas is crucial for resident satisfaction, especially as temperatures soar. It’s essential to keep HVAC systems in top condition to achieve this. 

Regular professional servicing of HVAC units in community spaces such as clubhouses, gyms, and meeting rooms is vital. This maintenance should include cleaning filters, checking for leaks, and ensuring efficient operation. 

Landscaping and Groundskeeping

Summer provides an ideal opportunity to enhance the community’s curb appeal and maintain outdoor areas effectively. A comprehensive approach to lawn care, including regular mowing, hedge trimming, and weed removal from garden beds, is essential. 

Remember, efficient irrigation is crucial during this season, so it’s important to inspect and repair irrigation systems and adjust watering schedules to meet summer climate needs while conserving water. 

Playground and Recreational Area Upkeep

During summer, outdoor recreational areas experience increased usage, making their safety and enjoyment a top priority for all residents. Regular safety inspections are crucial to ensure these spaces meet community needs.

This involves thoroughly examining playground equipment, sports courts, and picnic areas and promptly repairing or replacing any damaged equipment to maintain a safe environment. Equally important is surface maintenance, which includes checking and upkeeping the surfaces of playgrounds, sports courts, and walking paths. 

This encompasses repairing cracks, replenishing mulch, and ensuring proper drainage. By diligently addressing these aspects, your common outdoor areas stay well-maintained during the hot summer, and your residents can enjoy the heat outdoors, stress-free.

Pest Control

Warm weather often increases pest activity, which can become a significant nuisance for residents. We suggest working with your management team and its associated vendors to effectively schedule routine inspections for common pests like mosquitoes, ants, and rodents.

Once you’ve got the pests under control, fostering community awareness during the summer keeps them away! This involves educating residents about effective pest prevention strategies and encouraging them to report any infestations promptly.
