The end of summer is fast approaching. Getting your home ready for the next season can start now. The fall is a great time to think about doing a complete cleaning in your home. Here are some reasons why its a great time to clean:
1. The colder months mean more time spent inside.
2. Your kids have been home all summer tracking dirt in and out of the home.
3. Your skipped your “spring cleaning”.
Consider doing a “Deep Cleaning” to your home-Here are a few suggestions for areas that need deep cleaning.
-Scrutinize corners, baseboards, areas behind furniture, your furnace and air conditioning vents and the floors of closets, to name a few often-overlooked dust collectors.
-Take it Outside- Sunshine and fresh air work wonders: throw rugs, blankets and curtains respond well to a little “airing out.” But take care to do this on a low-pollen day lest you bring allergens back inside with these items, and don’t leave textiles in the bleaching action of the sun for too long.
-Take a good look at your bathroom. Remember that germs hide on places hands touch, so clean and disinfect those areas, which include cabinet knobs and shower and toilet handles. Faucets and other hardware need wiping, too.
-In the Kitchen-Clean out refrigerator doors and drawers, food tends to accumulate in these places. Wipe down cupboards handles that get frequently used and look dirty.
With these tips you can have your home cleaned and ready for the fall season!
Water damage is a very common homeowners insurance claim. While we can take steps towards maintaining our home to prevent such claims, often times a pipe bursting is totally unpredictable. There are systems available however, that detect unusual water flow in a home and turn off the water at the main valve if it detects a leak. Here is one such product from FloLogic.
Step #1: Safety First! Turn off breakers in affected rooms and main breaker if necessary.
Step #2: Take plastic bags and cover wooden furniture legs. If you cant do this do to size, put furniture up on tin foil.
Step#3: Tie up bottom of drapes so they aren’t touching the ground, or cover with a plastic bag.
Step#4: Pin up upholstered furniture skirts.
Step#5: Remove books, shoes, paper goods, fabrics, potted plants, and other items which could stain wet carpet.
Step#6: DO NOT use a regular vacuum to try and suck up water!
Step #7 Stay off wet carpet as much as possible to keep water from getting to unaffected areas.
