Summer Home Maintenance

During warmer months, the creatures living outside seek refuge inside your nice, cool home. Ensuring your windows and doors are properly sealed and that the exterior of your home is free from damage keeps critters out and reduces your air conditioning bills. From pressure washing to pool cleaning and fence installation, TruBlue handles it all.

Winter Home Maintenance

It’s no surprise that most home maintenance accidents happen in the Winter months. It gets dark earlier, snow and ice lead to slippery conditions, and people stand on ladders with staple guns to hang electrical lights. Need we say more?

Luckily, you don’t need to worry about any of that. Because with TruBlue, we get your house holiday ready while you sip cocoa by the fire. From winterizing pipes to furnace checks to hanging holiday lights, when it comes to your home, we’ve got it covered.

Useful reading

When you’re heading to the beach or you’re getting the kids ready for a day at the pool, it’s easy to remember things like sunscreen, snacks, shade breaks, water… but when you’re doing something like staining the deck, working on the landscaping or organizing the garage, time can get away from you. Before you head out to face whatever project you have on your to-do list, take a few minutes to prepare… Hydrate: Like with any activity you do outside in the heat (or inside in the heat), it’s important to make sure you are drinking enough water. It’s easy to lose track of time – you just want to finish one more part of the project before you go inside – but being dehydrated can be serious and, if you are thirsty, you are already on your way to being dehydrated. Take a water bottle out with you (warm water is better than no water!) and watch for signs of dehydration like feeling dizzy, having a rapid heart rate or feeling confused or sleepy. Also, although you might not want to hear it, alcohol and caffeine can cause your body to lose fluid, so be careful. Protect Yourself from the Sun: Sunburn can happen quickly, even on overcast days, so be sure to wear sunscreen if you’re going to be working outside. And don’t just put it on your shoulders! If you’re going to be kneeling to work, the back of your legs will thank you for applying sunscreen. Also, even water resistant sunscreen needs to be reapplied every couple of hours, so keep an eye on your skin. If you have a sunhat, wear it while you work to protect the top of your head and keep your face and neck a bit more shaded. And try to dress in as light of clothes as makes sense for the task you’re working to complete. Don’t Work Hungry: Being hungry can cause you to lose focus, feel dizzy or be nauseous. Sure, you might not want to hit the breakfast buffet before spending the morning staining the deck, but make sure you do eat something with some protein to help you face the day. Also be sure to take breaks and have small snacks when you need to – you’re burning calories so keep an eye on your hunger level. Pay Attention to Your Body: Even if you’re protecting yourself from the sun, eating and drinking, it can be easy for the heat to get to you. When you’re motivated to get the job done, the desire to push through can override your body’s signals that you need a break. Anytime you feel overheated, dizzy, confused, unfocused or tired, take a break. Waiting 30 minutes before getting back to whatever project your tackling is better than having to wait a week before you ended up at urgent care or the emergency room. And if the heat (or the project) is enough to make you cringe, contact your local TruBlue for help to get started.
Staying in your own home for as long as medically possible sounds great to most of us, but it can be easy to forget that aging in place is as much as your house as it is about your health. While no one can predict the future, there are certain things we can do now to make life easier down the road. If you’re thinking about remodeling parts of your home – or even just making some updates – doing them in a senior-safe way can help make sure your house is ready as your needs change. Here are six projects – three large and three small – you can do now to give your home an upgrade for today and for the future. Small Projects Replacing Door Knobs: Swapping doorknobs that have to be turned for lever-style door handles can make a big difference when it comes to ease of going between rooms or getting in or out of your house, especially if you’re faced with arthritis, joint stiffness, or mobility issues. Updating Lighting: Having the right lighting in your house – installing dimmer lights for late-night bathroom trips or brighter lights in the kitchen or even just swapping out fixtures to add additional light – can help with vision issues and help prevent falls. Installing Grab Bars: No one likes to think about grab bars, but installing them now will save you an emergency later. Don’t let your pride get in the way of your safety… you certainly don’t want to have to be rescued from the shower. Large projects Move the Laundry Room: Many older homes have basement laundry rooms, which means going up and down a lot of steps while holding laundry baskets and clothes. That’s a fall hazard whether you are 12 or 92! Moving your laundry room to the first floor (or the second floor, if you don’t have a ranch) even if it means taking up some closet space in a spare bedroom, can make doing laundry safer, more comfortable, and more convenient. Replacing Flooring: Hardwood floors and plush carpets both have their place, but they also both have their own issues when it comes to mobility. Consider what challenges you might be likely to face and pick an option that’s best for you. If you’re going with hardwood, be careful about thresholds and try to avoid area rugs. If you’re choosing carpet, look for something smoother and with a lower pile. Adding Accessibility Features: Do you have to walk up 12 steps to get to your front door? Does the step out of your back door look like a cliff? Do your interior steps have handrails? No one likes to think about needing a ramp or additional supports, but considering those challenges now will save you a headache later. Your local TruBlue technician can help with many of these projects and whatever other small or large renovations you’re planning.
Whether you’re moving into a new home, planning a renovation or deciding you have to do something after spending almost a year stuck inside your messy house, finding the right kind of organizational tools for your own, unique home can be challenging, but fun. From installing closet organizers to redoing pantries to creating build-ins, TruBlue can help with all kinds of organizational projects (https://trubluestaging.wpengine.com/services/handyman-services/), but it helps start with your own inspiration. Here are the three shows that inspire us the most when it comes to ways to organizing with more than cube storage, junk drawers and under-bed boxes: Get Organized with The Home Edit (Netflix): On this show, expert home organizers Clea and Joanna help clients – from celebrities to the girl next door – edit, categorize and contain their clutter to create stunning spaces. This show does a great job of finding ways to weight the personal value of our things with our available space and the design we want for our homes. Sure, you can always hang shelves on every wall for boxes… but should you? Probably not. Bea Organized (Amazon Prime): This one follows Beatrice Copeland, a writer, director and personal organizer, as she meets clients and helps them tackle their space and organizational issues. In each episode, she meets a new client (or group of clients) with unique challenges and, typically, not a lot of space or money to make improvements. How can a chef organize his personal kitchen? How can a one-bathroom house accommodate three adults? What can a beauty blogger do to make her space more functional? This show has a little something for everyone. Dream Home Makeover (Netflix): While Dream Home Makeover is focused on completely recreating spaces – whether you have $20,000 or $2 million to work with – many of their projects have organizational and storage elements you can build into your own home for even a couple hundred bucks. They do a great job of expanding cabinet spaces, adding built-ins, working with shelves and finding ways to maximize closets. These shows are more focused on ways to design your home to help you store and organize your home. If you are looking for shows that talk about ways to incorporate minimalism into your life, downsize or even get into the science of why a cleaner home can help improve your mental health, that’s a whole other list of great shows, including Tidying Up with Marie Kondo, Happy, Mission Organization or even Clean House. If you’re ready to jump into a project – large or small – that can help you organize your home and store everything from family photos to rolls of tape in a way that works for your life, your home and your family, it’s time to talk to your local TruBlue.
