A New Year, a New You!

Did you include home care in your New Year resolutions? Below are some home care resolutions you can be sure to keep!

Clear the Clutter

  • Go room-by-room periodically clearing anything that you don't use, wear or love and donate it to charity. 
  • Hide DVDs, remotes in decorative boxes. Also, hide shoes in bins,  
  • Group similar items together on sleek trays.
  • Clear your counters of everything you don't use on a daily basis

Make your home safe

Check batteries on fire and carbon monoxide detectors
Clean out dryer lint

Go green and save money

Use less water
Change out incandescent light bulbs with an energy saving florescent bulb.
Turn off lights when you are not in the room
Adjust A/C or heat when you leave the house
Install low flow shower heads. Not only will you save money, you will be saving the environment!

Get your place ready for entertaining

Decorate with plants and colorful pots, using accent colors in your home
Display a colorful accent rug/throw pillows
Rearrange furniture into conversation groups

Curb appeal

Clean windows
This is your home’s first impression.
Plant low maintenance flowers
Power wash walkways and home
