Can you believe it’s already November? While some days in 2021 certainly went by slow, it seems the months went by fast! Now the time has come to start getting your home ready for the holidays.
Our team at Journey Home Lending wants to share some tips about how you can get your home in top shape for the holidays.
Tackle Your November To-Do List
Whether you are getting your home ready to sell or hosting the first holiday gathering in your new home, there are certain tasks you can tackle this month to get your home spick and span!
Let’s take a look at ways you can get your home ready now for the holiday season so that you can sit back and relax when the holidays arrive:
Get the Kitchen Ready
First, you want to make sure your kitchen is ready for those big holiday meals—and that means that your garbage disposal is working to the best of its ability.
While you might not think about your garbage disposal much right now, when the time comes to clear the dishes from a big holiday dinner, a non-working garbage disposal can cause chaos quicker than you can say apple pie. Give your garbage disposal a good cleaning now to ensure it’s fresh and working later.
Amp Up Your Fire Safety
Make sure the safety mechanisms in your home are in working order, starting with the smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors.
Between the extra cooking and the heater turned on full blast this holiday season, there are many fire safety hazards specific to the season. You want to make sure your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are working properly to keep everyone in your home safe.
Give Things a Deep-Clean
Do you have guests coming to visit over the holidays? Now would also be a good time to wash your bed pillows, along with other items in your guest rooms that might not be washed regularly like curtains and rugs.
You want your guests to feel as if they are home when away from home.
