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.
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.
Love it or hate it, fall is here! As we say farewell to the warmth and fun of summer, it’s time to get excited about falling leaves, sweatshirts, campfires and all things autumn. For you, that might mean packing away the white shoes and digging out your boots, but what does it mean for your home? Here are five ways you can prepare for late fall and winter. Top Down: Fall is a wonderful time to inspect your roof, clean your gutters, check your downspouts and make sure your home is ready for wetter, cooler temperatures, including ice and snow. Although some of this you can do yourself, consider bringing in a company like TruBlue to help. Standing on a ladder while trying to mitigate any gunk you might find is dangerous work. Plus, if a repair needs to be made, we can help. Prepare for the Cold: Colder temperatures always seem to sneak up on us and there’s nothing like trying to get your furnace repaired on the coldest day of the year. Before that cold snap, have your furnace or heating system inspected and, if you use a fireplace, have your chimney cleaned and inspected.This is also a great time to test your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and replace your filters. Keep out the Draft: Sealing your doors and windows is a pretty simple process that can make a big difference when it comes to keeping in the heat – and keeping out the cold. Now is a great time to check – and possibly replace – the weather stripping and caulking around your windows and doors. If you have older windows, fall is a great time to insulate them. Bottom Up: Foundations are especially susceptible to water in the winter because of the way ice expands. If you have cracks in your foundation, fall is a great time to take stock of the situation, even if you can’t make repairs right now. While we’re talking about the bottom of your home, now is also a good time to insulate pipes that might be prone to freezing, shut down your outdoor water access and check for leaks that could become skating rinks in the dead of winter. Safety First: We could go on forever about ways to protect your home from the impending cold, but we’ll close out this blog with a quick reminder about home safety. Winter is prime time for falls, especially outside with the ice. Make sure your handrails are sturdy and accessible and that you have non-slip material right inside your doors. No one wants to come in with snowy shoes just to skid across the entryway. Whether you need help with a few of these projects or you’re ready to take seasonal maintenance (https://trubluehousecare.com/services/seasonal-work) off your list entirely, TruBlue can help.
