Cheer is in the air and holiday excitement is running amok. Before winter officially hits us in full force, make sure that we’re not caught unprepared. So while we’re prepping our homes for the holiday festivities, decking the halls, hanging the lights, filling the stockings, lighting the menorahs, cleaning the house, putting up your wreaths, and preparing for family visits, don't forget to prep our homes for the winter weather. Winter weather is some of the harshest of the 4 seasons. With it comes rain, snow, ice, and of course the cold temperatures. Same as you protect yourself from the elements, by taking precautions and putting on layers the same should go for your house. Below are 6 things to do that will keep your house in tip-top shape this winter. Clean your window’s weep holes. Windows have drains. The drains ensure that the standing water that makes its way into the window tracks have some place to go, and preferably not into your house! Window weep holes allow this water to drain outside. Make sure these small holes aren’t clogged by poking out the gunk with a wire hanger or spraying some compressed air through the weep hole. Protect your air conditioning unit. Ensure that any window units that you might have are all put away before winter comes. Protect your outdoor unit by placing a sheet of plywood on its top and weighing it down with a few bricks. This small protective measure will ensure your AC is blasting on cold in a few months when you need it. Drain your water heater. Overtime water heaters collect sediment at the bottom which unevenly distribute the heat and makes your water heater underperform, or work overtime causing you to replace it sooner that you have to. It’s recommended that you drain the water heater at least once a year, preferably twice. In the winter months, this will help keep your showers nice and hot so you can warm off quickly after a frozen day. Disconnect your garden hose and turn off the water. Water freezes. Frozen water pipes can burst and that causes big problems. To avoid this, check all of your exposed piping, and don’t forget your attic too. Ensure that your pipes are covered and insulated. Check for drafts on doors and windows. Drafts let in the cold air, and make your heater work overtime. This will drive up your heating costs during the winter. To easily fix drafty doors, consider using draft guards for an airtight seal. Use weather-stripping on the attic access, the window sills, and other places where cold air can seep-in. Check your Fire Alarm Batteries. Studies have shown that the winter is the most popular season for fires. By being proactive and ensuring that the batteries in your alarms are up-to-date, it creates a safer home for everyone in your home. In the same vein, make sure your family has a Fire Safety Plan. This plan should make sure everyone knows what should happen in case of a fire emergency. We encourage you to practice a fire drill with your family twice a year. To set yourself up for success next year we have House Care Plus, a monthly or quarterly subscription handyman service. They will go around your house and check all the odds and ends of your house so that you don’t have to. Our talented house care technicians will keep your largest investment, your home, in the best shape of its life for years to come.
After the last holiday season, we are ready to celebrate this year in a big (although still safe) way! Unfortunately our homes might not feel the same... With almost two years of retail therapy and working from home behind us, many of our houses need a little attention before they can welcome guests. At TruBlue, we know that you might not have the time – or the budget – to upgrade your guest bathroom or remodel your kitchen this year, but there are a few things you can do to make a great impression: declutter, clean and decorate! The first step to get your home ready for guests is to declutter. Decluttering is tough, especially if you have kids, but even the best housecleaner can’t make your home sparkle if every corner and closet is packed to the gills. Take an honest look around your house and put things into three categories. Things in the “First Priority” pile should be things you still want to keep out and in public view. This might be the things you want to leave in the toy box in the living room, the family photos you want on the shelves, the coffee table book your grandmother loves. The “Second Priority” items are the things you want accessible, but that can be packed up, put into under-bed boxes or stored in the basement. You want to know where they are, but you probably don’t need them right now. When you look at what’s left – the third priority items – that’s when you have to start making decisions about what you want to keep, sell or donate. By the way, if you need help with this process, our friends at Caring Transitions can help! Once your home is decluttered and organized, you can start working on cleaning. TruBlue can absolutely help with that, but if you’re convinced you want to clean on your own, there are a few items we’d encourage you to add to your regular cleaning list. When was the last time you cleaned your light fixtures and dusted your lampshades? Do you have cobwebs in the top corners of your rooms? Have you wiped down your baseboards? These are things that often go unnoticed that can make a big difference. Finally, when your house is decluttered and clean, you can get out those holiday decorations! From snowman wine glasses to Christmas lights, we love holiday décor. What don’t we love? Dragging those boxes out of the basement and hanging the lights ourselves. That’s why we bring in TruBlue’s technicians to help! Let us help you make an impression this holiday season. Find your local TruBlue at https://trubluehousecare.com/.
For older adults considering their options and family members looking to do the best for their aging loved ones, there’s one thing many people agree on: the importance of living at home for as long as it’s the safest, healthiest thing to do. This is especially true now that COVID-19 has kept so many from seeing their loved ones who were (and, in some cases, still are) locked inside nursing homes and assisted living facilities. From enjoying the comforts of home to living with the dignity of being more self-sufficient to saving money on housing costs, Aging in Place has a slew of benefits. But while it’s relatively easy to find the right caregiver for your individual situation, that’s only half of the equation. The house itself has to be equipped for both the current needs and the future needs of the person living at home. In some cases that means lowering light switches or building ramps, but in other cases that means having someone regularly scheduled to help with lawn care, handyman repairs, cleaning services and more. Living at home doesn’t do much good if your house is falling down around you. Jennifer Corder, a TruBlue franchisee with a background as a Director of Client Care for an in-home care company, said she has seen this exact issue time and time again. “I saw such a big need for these kinds of services when I was working in the in-home care industry, and if something like TruBlue had existed in the community I served, I would have been referring these services all the time. The house itself is such an important part of successfully aging in place safely and comfortably. By working with TruBlue, loved ones can have the peace of mind knowing that the seniors in their lives are living in safe, well-maintained homes,” she said. That’s where TruBlue Total House Care comes in. TruBlue is a national franchise that provides a helping hand around the house – inside and out. TruBlue’s services include tackling to-do list chores, handyman services, house cleaning, maintenance, yard work, senior home modifications and seasonal projects, all handled by a dedicated House Care Manager, either individually or through monthly or quarterly programs. TruBlue’s one-call-does-it-all approach to home care services also means that seniors and loved ones can call one trusted company to take care of the entire home. TruBlue also recently partnered with Age Safe® America in order to provide certified home safety assessments. So, before you schedule the tour of that facility down the street, take some time to consider whether hiring a caregiver and bringing in a House Care Manager might be a better fit.
