How do you prepare your home for winter? Do you crank up the heat and brew hot coffee? Or do you crack the windows and breathe in the crisp, fresh air? Whether you love or tolerate the season, it’s time to ready your home. Discover how to get started with tips from Misty Clean!
Swap Cotton for Wool
Your summer linens aren’t going to keep you warm this winter. Swap out the bedding in each bedroom, and properly store the cotton sheets for next summer. Changing your bedding each season may keep you warm, but it also extends the life of your bedding.
Climb on the Roof
As leaves fall, it’s important to clean them from the gutter as soon as you can. A clogged gutter can lead to a variety of serious damages to your home, such as a leaky roof. Whether you climb onto the roof yourself or you hire someone, ensure that it gets done sooner rather than later.
Ready the Outdoor Spaces
You don’t have to spend the entirety of winter indoors if you prepare. If you’re lucky enough to have a deck or patio, have an outdoor heater or fire pit installed. Outdoor lighting provides illumination for long, winter nights. And outdoor heating units can allow you to enjoy your deck all winter long.
The Chimney Sweep
If you have a fireplace, clean it before you use it for the first time. There could still be ashes and debris left over from last winter. Make sure to stock up on wood before the temperature drops!
Run to the Store
If it doesn’t snow this winter, it’s going to freezing rain. As a Maryland resident, you have to be prepared for the worst. Run to the store and purchase a shovel, salt, and necessary winter gear before it goes out of stock.
