If you’re like a lot of people, you’ll be starting off 2021 with some resolutions. Usually New Year’s resolutions run the gambit of eating healthier to being more productive, but what about starting off this new year with some resolutions for your home? A new year is the time for new starts and clean slates so pick a handful of these items to get your home in tip-top shape for the new year!
1. Make small changes to go greener and conserve more energy. You don’t have to do something big like solar panels. Simply remembering to turn off lights when not in use or the tap off when you’re brushing your teeth and learning to recycle properly will help the planet AND save you money!
2. Deep clean your home. Make it easy by going room by room rather than dusting the whole house or vacuuming the whole house at a time. While you’re doing this, purge what you no longer need or use then donate what you can. You and your home will feel a lot lighter and brighter.
3. Check that your house is safe and secure. Ensure you aren’t living with a potential fire or health risk by checking that all smoke detectors are working properly (as well as carbon monoxide detectors!), checking for radon gas, making sure your home is properly ventilated and that your home is up to the latest safety standards.
4. Inspect your foundation for termite damage. Once a year it’s a good idea to take a walk around to examine your foundation - inside and out - for any termite tunnels. Termites can do major damage so keeping an eye on this now can save you a lot of pain and money in the long run.
5. Get your dryer vents cleaned. As it gets colder, you start drying heavier clothing and more blankets and the bulkier the fabrics you’re drying, the more lint that accumulates. Taking care of any existing lint now will make it a little harder for your vents to end up clogged in a month or two.
No matter what your resolutions for 2021, we hope you and your loved ones have a safe & happy holiday!
