Let the Sun Shine In

Its time to prepare for the upcoming holidays! Here are some tips to help ensure that your home is prepared for a parade of visitors and colder weather, so you can maintain the holiday spirit:

  • If you haven't had your air conditioner/heat pump unit serviced yet this year, schedule a professional checkup. Now is the time to find problems, not when it’s freezing outside and inside!
  • If you have a fireplace, the National Fire Protection Agency recommends that it be inspected and cleaned annually. 
  • Do a visual check of your home’s duct work to see if an unwanted layer of dust has accumulated.  You may want to have them professionally cleaned.
  • When its time to hang up lights, plan to clean the gutters first. If the water can’t drain, it can seep in under your shingles.
  • Seal drafty doors and windows. Check caulk around windows and the weather stripping around doors and replace as needed..
  • Give your cook-top exhaust fan a good clean.  Many filters are removable and can be run through the dishwasher, check the manufacturer’s recommendations.

Consider taking care of some things inside the house now too, particularly if you’re expecting company during the holidays. 

  • If you’ll be hosting out of town guests, it’s a good time to target closets and maybe even the garage to declutter and give away unneeded items to charity.    
  • If you have pull-out couches that will be used, open them up, air them out, and schedule a professional cleaning, if necessary.
  • Make sure your home is child ready, with toxic cleaning supplies out of reach.
  • If the holiday meal is at your house, create a menu and ask others what they'd like to bring. Make a list of what you can do ahead, with the detail of what will be done on each day prior to the event.  
  • Rid the refrigerator of dated condiments. Take a pantry inventory and make a shopping list to stock up on essentials for easy meals and items needed for the holiday feast.  You may want to refamilairze with what is in your freezer and plan on using up what is there for easy ready made meals to make room for holiday leftovers.
  • Don’t forget to schedule time to relax, whether it be getting exercise, getting a massage, or a special tub soak at home (here are some bathsoak recipes) so you are ready to enjoy the get togethers.

A little preventative maintenance and some prior planning can mean fewer headaches this winter and a more relaxing and enjoyable holiday season with family and friends.

 

Give thanks to the Lord, who is good, whose love endures forever.                     Psalm 106:1
