Checklist of Winter Home Maintenance Tasks
Starting the new year with a clean home and less to do is the way to go. It gives you a fresh start, with less to stress about. This means you will have the clear mind to achieve those resolutions you’ve set for yourself.
Clean the Kitchen
Anything that can be moved should be. Deep clean all of the floors and hidden nooks and crannies that go forgotten throughout the year. You just might be surprised at what you’ll find hiding.
Get any major appliance repair and service out of the way. Even a minor issue that has been bothering you can take up unwanted space on your to-do list. This includes noisy appliances pieces you need a technician to clean.
Hire a Chimney Sweep
When was the last time you had your chimney swept? If you are struggling to remember, it is time to make a phone call. Even gas fireplace service is necessary to keep your family warm and your fire burning.
Wood stoves require maintenance as well. Grab your cleaning gear and give yours a good scrub down from the inside out. You can contact someone who specializes in these unique stoves for a good cleaning.
Get Work Done Outdoors
Turn off any outdoor water supplies and cover any equipment that will be affected by the elements. Even something you think will make it through can be covered to prevent damage, just in case.
Anything you can bring in to help protect it can be stored away. Even moving something to the garage for the next few months can help give it more life. This includes any portable outdoor furniture like patio sets.
