If your new year's resolutions include maintaining your home in top shape during the upcoming months, then you should know that to do so, you will need to work hard and take care of different areas effectively. Below you'll find a few ideas of how you can make that happen so that you can have a beautiful, safe, functional, comfortable, and nearly perfect home this new year.

How to Maintain Your Home in Top Shape this New Year

Keep It Safe

Having a safe home is a must if you want peace of mind. For that reason, you should do your best during this new year to make your place safer. Aside from making sure everything is working correctly, you should conduct drills in your home with your family, set evacuation routes, and designate safe spots, so you know how to react in an emergency. Also, equip your home with useful tools, such as a first aid kit and a fire extinguisher.

Have a Green Home

It's no secret that the environment is in dire need of our help. One way which you can participate in this cause is to keep the resolution to have a greener home this year. A few things you can do is recycle your trash, insulate your home, and be more conscious of your water usage. These measures won't only help the environment, but they can even translate into lower electric and water bills.

Make It Squeaky Clean

Having a perfectly clean home is a goal that many people shoot for, but that not many achieve. Yes, it requires a lot of commitment, but if you want to have a cleaner home this year, you need to be dedicated. To make this task seem less overwhelming, you should create a cleaning schedule. In it, write down the different cleaning chores you need to get through, break them off, and spread them out over the days of the week, so you only have to do a little bit each day.

Inspect and Maintain its Areas

As mentioned above, everything should work correctly if you want to have a safer home. Now, your house is made up of a foundation, structure, and different systems (e.g. electric, plumbing). Then, there are your appliances and belongings. To ensure that all of those areas are functioning correctly, take note of and fix any issues that arise in your home. Likewise, have a professional inspect these once a year so that they can remain safe and functional. If you don't maintain your home properly, something can go awry. If that was the case, and now your home is in shambles, know that Walker & Frick Construction Co., Inc. DKI in Tuckahoe can be there for you with the professional property restoration services your home needs. Call 804 282 1281 to request a free estimate on emergency property restoration in Tuckahoe. 

Continue Working on It

Having a perfect home is a never-ending work in progress. This means that, no matter how much you do, there will always be something that requires your attention (be it because it's broken, or because it can be improved). For instance, there's always a loose screw or a spot that could be used more efficiently. Make it a point during this new year to continue working on your home. You can even involve your family in those chores.

Get Rid of Things

Clutter can change how you perceive your home and how you feel in it. If you think you have too much stuff, it's time to start de-cluttering. Doing so can be a daunting task, but it will help you feel lighter afterward. Go through every item you own and decide if it's useful to you or if it makes you happy. If the answer is "no," you have the option to sell it, donate it, or simply throw it out.

Perform Seasonal Maintenance on It

As a final tip, remember to do seasonal maintenance around your home during this year. As you may be aware, your home has different needs depending on the conditions outside. For example, during the fall season, you need to take care of falling leaves, clean clogged gutters, and prepare for the colder days ahead. Consider the weather and get your home ready for it so that it can endure it without problems.
