Mid Winter Home Upkeep

Mid Winter Home Upkeep

The holidays are well behind us in the rearview mirror. In this mid-winter lull, not quite spring but as it gets lighter out each day this season, our eyes see imperfections around the house that need tending to. Don’t wait for spring-cleaning to tackle some simple upkeep items that can be done now.

Begin Small

Take Inventory:

  • Clean out your closets and donate what you don’t wear any longer.
  • Re-stock pantry shelves
  • Sharpen knives
  • De-clutter kitchen drawers (Tupperware containers without lids, random gadgets with no more use, chipped dishes, etc.)
  • Toss out old and expired items in both the kitchen and bathroom. (Cosmetics usually have an expiration date on the bottom of the product)sink
  • Launder or dry-clean pillows and throws to add freshness to each room.
  • Dust bookshelves and box up any that have lost interest to give to a good home.
  • Wash indoor windows to let the little bit of winter sunlight in.

Grand Scale

Examine Your Property:

  • Check for dampness in-doors and out. Groundwater and rain can seep into your home in unsuspecting places.
  • With the below-freezing temps throughout New Jersey, check all external pipes for any that may have bursted during one of the thaws.
  • Take a tour around the perimeter of the house after any windstorm to make sure there aren’t any downed limbs leaning across the power lines or on the roof.
  • Examine the exterior of your home for any damage to your siding, gutters and trim that this stormy winter may have caused.
  • Change your furnace filter. Filters typically last about three months, and with the cold temps, you have most likely gotten most of its use out of your current filter.
