Monthly plans that fit your busy life

We all have those to-do list items that we never seem to find time for. The problem is, putting off those to-dos can mean more costly fixes later and can even be dangerous to your health and safety.

Did you know clogged dryer vent hoses are one of the leading causes of house fires every year? We do. That’s why it’s included in our Home Assessment as part of a House Care Plus package.

December is full of many holidays, hectic schedules and all around craziness. It’s not uncommon to put holiday lights up around your property, trees in your living rooms, wreaths in your windows. By January, Kinaras and Menorahs had both been lit, the ball has dropped and most of us are trying to find balance in our old routines again. The holiday season certainly puts your homes and selves through the ringer. Kids are home from school for the holidays, and relatives and guests travel in and out of your own homes. The added wear and tear might mean that your house requires some TLC and post holiday decompression of its own. It can be hard to find the motivation to start cleaning up the house and resetting for the new year. In a study conducted by People Magazine, 54% of Americans confessed that the last thing they wanted to do was to clean up their homes once the festivities had ended. To help aid from the transition here are 5 easy things that you can do to reset after the holiday chaos has ended: Start with Trash: starting with trash is often the easiest way to remove the visual clutter from your space that makes it seem extra messy. To do this, take a large trash bag around your home and start chucking the rubbish in the bag. You can also do this with the recyclables as well. Put Things in Their Homes: Everything in your house should have a home, or someplace that it belongs. For example, your remote goes in the room with your TV, laundry goes in a hamper or into the dresser/closet. Go around the house and put things into their proper places. Once items are in their homes, you’re left with ‘homeless’ items. To create a home for them ask yourself, “where would I look for this item” and then take it to that place. Take Down Holiday Decor: Put the tree away, take the wreaths out of the windows and take the holiday lights down. Removing these items from sight mentally reset your mind that the holidays are truly done. Clean: Run the vacuum cleaner/sweep and mop the floors to remove any of the dirt and dust caused by your families coming and leaving your homes. Wipe down your surfaces with a disinfectant to remove the germs off of your surfaces, don’t forget commonly touched places such as door knobs or light switches. Repairs & Projects: Sometimes the holidays can inadvertently cause damage to your house. Other times there are projects that you wanted to accomplish before the holidays were here but you ran out of time. Now is the time to complete your maintenance tasks. Don’t feel like you need to tackle them alone though, call TruBlue to expertly navigate your projects and repairs so that you can get back to a normal routine and relax after all the fun has been had.
There comes a time for every family when we transition from going to our parent's or grandparent's homes for the holidays to hosting them ourselves. Cleaning, cooking and hosting is a lot of work for our older family members, so it just makes sense to update the tradition. But while it might make sense to host the holidays yourself, have you thought about whether or not your home is age-friendly enough for your older loved ones? First of all, take a look at access. How is the parking at your home? Will your older loved ones be able to easily navigate your front steps? Do you need to tighten those bolts on your handrail? Is your entryway slick? Do you need to clean up slippery leaves? Is there room to get a walker from the door to your dining room table? Sometimes an easy rearrangement of the furniture and stationing someone outside to help seniors navigate your entryway can be enough to make access safer and easier for everyone. Secondly consider seating. While you might love your slouchy couch, it can be challenging for older adults to get in and out of low-sitting furniture and they might not want to ask for help. Could you borrow some sturdy folding chairs from a friend? Could you host everyone in the family room instead of the living room? What’s the best space to keep everyone together, but make sure everyone is comfortable. While we’re on the subject of seating, do you have enough dining room chairs? Do they have non-slip pads on the bottom? Do they need seat cushions? You don’t want to up-end your house for the holidays, but sometimes simple adjustments can make a big difference. Finally, step back and see if you need to make adjustments for safety, especially when it comes to possible trip hazards and handrails. If you are prone to get your foot caught on that shaggy rug in your living room, chances are good that it’s not friendly for older adults or walkers. The same is true for cords – or pets – that you may have stepped over a hundred times. Also, depending on the needs of your individual family members, you might want to consider picking up temporary support rails for your bathroom. These are just a few of the ways you can ensure your home is ready for family members of all ages without a complete redesign of your space or a huge investment in age-safe modifications. Have a great holiday season!
You don’t have to be a millionaire to have a home that looks like a million bucks. If it’s time for a refresh – whether it’s organization, color, lighting, design touches or something else – there are plenty of affordable upgrades that can make a huge difference without breaking the bank. Here are five of our favorites: Organization: Clutter can kill the vibe of any space and you can only have so many storage cubes and under-bed boxes! So what do you do? At TruBlue, we know storage can be truly part of a home’s design. When clients come to us with storage challenges, we are able to help with things like redesigning closets and laundry rooms, installing additional cabinetry, building pantries or built-ins. While it’s great to be able to sell or donate things you no longer need, it’s not always enough. Let us help. Lighting: The lighting of a house – inside and out – can make a big impact on curb appeal and atmosphere. It’s important to consider your lighting style, fixtures, locations, light color, brightness and more. Light can be complicated and seeing all of those things in your own home can be tough. At TruBlue, we can help you think about what kind of light would best suit your home and then help you make any necessary adjustments. Some of our more popular projects have included landscape lighting, under-counter lighting and vanity lighting. Front Door: A front door is a huge part of a home’s personality, but replacing it altogether can be a more expensive endeavor. At TruBlue, we can help remove old layers of paint, add new paint or stain, add weather stripping, add design elements like molding and more. A door can look brand new without being brand new and TruBlue can help. Upgrading the Bathroom: If you have a half bath or powder room your guests often use, upgrading that space without renovating your entire home can make a significant impact. We’d suggest upgrading the vanity, including the faucet and hardware, and going with a new style of mirror. Let’s face it… those are the items your guests will see the most… Include a fresh coat of paint and it will look like a whole new room. Swapping out Hardware: From your door handles to your cabinet pulls, houses are full of small, extremely visible hardware that we often overlook. If you’re considering a new look, from farmhouse to modern, there’s an almost endless amount of options in the hardware space. While changing out hardware isn’t necessarily a hard project, it can be time-consuming and frustrating to do on your own. If you’re thinking about making these or other upgrades, TruBlue Total House Care is here to help and, with our EasyPay option, you can space even smaller costs out over the course of a year. Find your local TruBlue today to discuss the many ways we can help you achieve a high-design look without a high-design cost.
