With a little over a week until Thanksgiving and just over six weeks to New Year’s Day, it’s time to start doing some de-cluttering and repairing to prepare your home for holiday guests. Use these tips below to reduce the holiday strain before the doorbell even rings!
Address any plumbing issues – Already working with a slow drain? Increase the number of guests in your home and this small problem can turn into a flood in the making. Make sure your plumbing is in good shape now, before the extra strain is added later.
Check the garbage disposal – With all the extra turkey trimmings on the horizon, the last thing you want to deal with in the midst of holiday gatherings is a broken disposal. If you’re experiencing minor problems now, get it looked at. Otherwise, take a look at some of these maintenance tips to help you prep for the big feast.
Heating tuneup – Furnace due for a checkup? Give us a call! A breakdown is a problem at anytime, but even worse on a frigid day with a home full of guests.
Guest room check – If you are fortunate enough to have a spare guest room, you’ll also want to ensure there are a few spare hangers in the guest room closets. Luggage can take up space so clear some room before your guests arrive. Having people bunk on the sofa? Arrange an amenity area for your guests’ belongings and provide bedding storage for where blankets can go during the day when your sofa may be in use.
