Making Your Home Winter Ready, Stress Free
The daunting thought of winter and cold weather can make someone stressed out pretty quickly. Getting extension cords ready to plug your vehicle in, making sure your home's heating system is checked and in good working order, window sealing, weather stripping, the whole nine yards, it's stressful and we know. Let us help make this Winter prep season stress free with a few helpful tips.
The Saving Strategy: The financial benefits that this strategy can have can outweigh any feelings of being "put out". Winter heating costs can skyrocket if your windows are poorly insulated, your plumbing breaks, or if your home's heating system is out of date. Ensuring your home is properly prepped can save your wallet and will protect your property for years to come. It should never be considered a chore to take care of the home that takes care of you.
Break It Down: Don't make 1 giant to-do list, it can be overwhelming and frustrate you. Rather, break it down into 2 or 3 jobs that you can get done over the next 3 to 4 weekends. First on the list? Windows. Check each one in your home for drafts and insulation needs. The following week, inspect your pipes to avoid an unfortunate burst in January. It can be even easier for you if you divide the tasks up among your family. Assign each person a room to inspect and report back on whether it's winter ready.
It's really simple to get your home ready for the cold weather ahead. And when you've completed these jobs, consider your annual carpet cleaning or if you haven't had your ducts cleaned in 2-3 years, book a duct cleaning. Corner 2 Corner Cleaning & Restoration is working hard to get your jobs done and we don't take breaks because of cold weather. Book your appointment before we go on holidays on December 24th.
