Before you even plan on remodeling, upgrading your furniture, or painting the house, the best way to go will always be cleaning up your mess. The peace of mind that gives a clean closet and a well-organized garage is unmatchable. So, this new year, take out all the past trash, rescue the items you really would need, and leave your home with free space. Open arms for all the upcoming year’s blessings.
Service your HVAC system
During the extreme-weather seasons like summer and winter, surely you’re HVAC system gets used more often. But, have you noticed a drop in your air quality? That may be the result of having dirty air filters. Air filters get all dusty with time, so make sure to check them out and change them if needed. Your nose and lungs are going to thank you. Plus, you’ll sleep better at night.
Another essential home improvement. Frequently overlooked, your lights are a crucial part of your house’s aesthetics and performance. Dull lightbulbs and badly located lights can affect your comfort while at home and are an essential component for your home living, so pay special attention to solving this problem first. Also, once you’re on this task, consider buying LED lights or another type of low consuming lightbulbs.
Paint your old walls
Speaking of light, there are few better ways to illuminate and freshen up your home than with a good painting session. By doing this, not only will your old walls gain a new layer of protection, but also the new color will stimulate your eyes and uplift your attitude. In fact, with brighter colors, your rooms could look bigger, and neutral colors could attract the future buyers of your home (in case you’re planning to sell it).
Clean the chimney
The cold months will take a while to end. And if you have a fireplace at home, you must keep it clean. It’s proven that most of the house fire incidents are provoked by badly maintained chimneys. Soot and creosote in the interior walls of the fireplace are extremely flammable and can drag fire into your walls. If your chimney hasn’t been cleaned in months, consider calling a professional for doing a deep clean.
