Living in Korea | 8 Services Expats Need to Prepare for Summer in Korea
Expats beware, summer is coming and it’s going to be a hot one! We’ve listed our top 8 service requests to help you make the best of it, especially if you’re not used to sweating through these hot spicy Korean summers.
Here are the best ways Wonderful's bilingual personal assistants are helping expats in Korea prepare to stay cool and enjoying the hottest months of the year.
1. Air Conditioner Repair and Cleaning
Get your air conditioner serviced now before the summer rush. If it’s not blowing cool enough, you’ll want to get it checked for leaks or maybe top off the coolant. If you haven’t had it cleaned in a while we highly recommend it. Remember that yellow disgusting dust? It’s probably sleeping in your air conditioner right now. The filter should either be replaced or flushed regularly. It’s especially important if you’ve had mold problems or are asthmatic.
When the weather gets too hot outside, your home is the perfect place for little many-legged critters to hang out and stay cool. Cockroaches, ants, termites, silverfish, rodents, and other unidentifiable bugs can be a real problem if you don’t take care of it quickly. It’s amazing how fast they can reproduce and infest an older home. If you’ve noticed any creepy crawlies walking by your cereal box, don’t wait, You need an exterminator right now.
3. Good Housekeeping
Nothing is more satisfying than walking into a freshly cleaned home. It’s also a good way to keep the critters outside when all the cookie crumbs are swept up and counters wiped down. You can easily get your house chores out of the way and give yourself some more time to enjoy all those great summer outdoor activities. Don’t stay home when you don’t have to. There are so many amazing travel adventures, concerts and activities you shouldn’t miss because you have too muh laundry to do.
Summer sandals, shorts, mini skirts, tank tops… We’ve all been looking forward to this throughout the long winter months. It’s time to make those beauty appointments for your legs and toes, and fall into the sexy summer vibe. If you’ve got it, flaunt it!
Your poochie should get a trim too. It’s going to get hot, seriously hot. Whether he needs a shave, clipping or an undercoat thinned out, your fur baby will thank you for it. Pamper your pet and get that grooming appointment booked regularly. I mean think about it, who wants to walk around in summer with a thick fur coat, right?
6. Gym Memberships
There’s always 10 good reasons to not go to the gym but a million reason why you actually should go. The first and hardest step is signing up. You say that it’s hard because everything is in Korean but we can help you with that. The second step is to make a habit of showing up and, well, that’s your job, make it happen. We’ll be happy to cheer you up along the way.
7. Food Delivery
If it’s too hot to go out, stay home and get your dinner delivered! We recommend cold noodles, steamed pork wrapped in lettuce, smoothies, salads and ice cream if you’re trying to stay cool. However, the options are pretty much unlimited as lots of great restaurants have been popping up in Seoul. Also, don’t worry if your favorite place doesn’t deliver because we can simply send someone to take care of your special cravings.
Find that perfect apartment and let us take care of the boxes. No really, don’t sweat it. There’s nothing worse than trying to force your friends to help you carry that couch to your new place in the heat of the day.Instead, take that time to plan the coolest housewarming party ever.
