The holiday season is quickly approaching, and you are probably planning for parties and family get-togethers by buying presents and stocking your pantry with everyone’s favorite foods. But there are more ways to prepare your home for the holiday season than just purchasing presents and planning dinners.
Our team at True Clean Power Wash & Seal wants you to know exactly how to prepare your home for the holiday season so you can focus on enjoying time with your family and friends.
1. Get High-Traffic Areas Pressure Washed
Hosting your family for the holiday season means lots of feet walking in and out of your home. High-traffic areas on the pavement that are already dirty from regular traffic may become even dirtier, leaving you with dingy walkways at the end of the season. If you are trying to prepare your home for the holiday season, you should consider getting these high-traffic areas in front of your home pressure washed ahead of time.
Not only will pressure washing these high-traffic areas improve the visual appearance of your home as guests arrive, but it also takes a chore off of your list for the end of the holiday season. If you are trying to enjoy the holiday season by focusing on spending time with your loved ones, you should call a team of professionals to pressure wash these areas for you.
2. Invest In Window Cleaning
Whether you want people to see your holiday decorations from outside your home or you want to enjoy watching the snowfall, investing in window cleaning is a great way to prepare your home for the holiday season. Having dirty, streaky windows may make it difficult for you and your guests to enjoy your space fully.
In addition to being easier to see through, clean windows brighten up your home. While the winter months are generally darker, that doesn’t mean your home has to be as well. If you want to prepare your home for the holiday season, ensure you schedule a window cleaning before you schedule your holiday parties.
3. Double-Check Your Home’s Gutters
Dirty gutters are an eyesore, and as they fill with debris, this problem only becomes more significant. If your gutters are left uncleaned, dirty storm water may leak down the sides of your home, streaking your siding with dirt and grime, making this an even bigger problem to tackle. You should double-check your gutters to avoid this and prepare your home for the holiday season.
When checking your home’s gutters, you may even find that you are dealing with a mold and mildew growth problem. If this is left unaddressed, it may become much more significant and can lead to health problems. If you or any family members have respiratory health issues, it is essential that you schedule a gutter cleaning to prepare your home for the holiday season.
4. Wash Your Home’s Siding
The exterior walls of your home protect you from everything, from wind to rain and snow. But, as they protect you from this weather, they can quickly become dirty and dingy looking. If you want to prepare your home for the holiday season, you should consider getting the exterior walls of your home professionally cleaned.
While dirty walls might not be much of a problem for you if you have darker siding on your home, lighter walls will show every drop of dirt and grime. This dirt and grime can dramatically impact the curb appeal. If you want your home to look its best before your family and friends come over, you should prepare your home for the holiday season by washing your home’s siding.
5. Get Professional Holiday Light Installation
The last thing you want when you are trying to prepare your home for the holiday season is for another chore to fall into your lap. You already have plenty going on without adding even more to the list. If you want to take some of this stress off of your shoulders, you should consider hiring a team of professionals to install your holiday lights.
With the help of a team of professionals, your lights may be installed more quickly than if you tried to do it yourself. They may even be able to create an intricate holiday light display that makes your home the talk of the neighborhood.
6. Clear Debris Off Of Your Backyard Deck
While the holiday season is pretty cold in the northern hemisphere, and you probably don’t spend much time in your home’s outdoor spaces as snow begins to fall, clearing debris off your backyard deck is still important to prepare your home for the holiday season. With so many indoor entertaining spaces, you might not think these outdoor spaces are important.
But you don’t want a dirty deck to stop you from keeping this as an option. If your deck is cleared off, you may even want to invest in an outdoor heater, allowing you to utilize this space year-round. You may also choose to decorate this space with holiday lights, wreaths, or tinsel to tie your whole home together.
7. Schedule And Plan Everything Ahead Of Time
The holiday season often flies by in the blink of an eye. If you want to prepare your home for the holiday season, it is best that you schedule and plan everything ahead of time. If you don’t schedule everything ahead of time, you may feel like you are scrambling to keep up as the holidays come even closer.
By planning ahead of time, you ensure you have everything you need before your family is over, allowing yourself to enjoy this time fully. By planning ahead, you may even allow yourself to miss out on any shortages at stores or full schedules. If you are tired of the stress that accompanies this time of year, you should do everything you can to schedule and plan to prepare your home for the holiday season.
