The holidays are just around the corner as we enter November. This means that there are going to be celebrations, food, and memories all around. But, having guests in your house, means a lot of responsibility too. You must prepare for these potential guests and we have a few suggestions that can help you with it. So, let us begin.
4 Tasks Every Homeowner should do in November
Following are some of the things that every homeowner should do in November as the holiday season approaches.
Wash the Beds, Covers, and Pillows
While everyone loves staying in bed during the winter season and snuggling to our heart’s desire, it is important to know a few things that could result in problems. Keeping the same bed and pillow covers seems like an easy job but it also means that there is going to be a lot of fungus on these pillows. Experts believe that there are at least 4-6 different kinds of fungi on pillows and sheets that you do not wash for several days.
We also suggest that you keep the mattress in the open, it would be best to clean them or go for a deep cleaning service if you feel is the sheets are a little too dirty.
Not everyone enjoys the winters and nor does anyone have the temperament to take on the spine-chilling wind. Thus, you should consider insulating your windows as it is the best way to ensure that you and your guests have a pleasant stay during the holidays.
It is as simple as adding Velcro straps to the windows with a few air fresheners to keep the rooms comfortably warm and fresh.
Get Snow Supplies
Getting slow supplies is something that goes without saying for homeowners who live in places where it snows a lot. You cannot stop the weather but can prepare for it. So, it would be best to go down to your local hardware store and get everything from a shovel to a snow blower. It will help you prepare for the worst weather and keep your house free from snow and potential dangers.
This will also save you from rushing to the stores last minute in case an unforeseen snow-related problem shows up last minute.
Trim the Trees and Sweep the Chimney
The winter season means you will use your fireplace and that means you will need a clean chimney. A cleaner chimney will reduce the smoke build-up inside the house and make it easier for you to keep your home warmer.
In addition to this, we suggest that you take the time out and trim the tree around your house. It is best to cut them 3 inches as they aren’t going to bloom in the winter season. Moreover, it is easier to cut trees down in winters since there are no leaves (unless you have an evergreen tree).
That said, it is best to start preparing for the winter seasons as November is already here. Taking an early approach right now will help you keep your house clean and ready for the winter holidays. Once you follow these steps properly, your house will be winter-ready in no time.
