Preparing Your Home For Guests This Holiday Season
Temperatures are really beginning to cool down, the days are much shorter and we’re diving right into the holiday season. If it’s your turn to host this year, there’s a few things you need to do in order to get your home ready for holiday guests:
- Check to make sure your thermostat is working properly. You’re going to have a house full of guests and you’ll want to make sure everyone is comfortable, right? If you haven’t done so already, flip the system to “heat” and raise the temperature a few degrees to make sure the heat kicks on. If it doesn’t seem to be working, check the batteries and if that doesn’t do the trick, give us a call.
- Place a plunger in the bathroom guests will likely be using while they’re over. It’s also a good idea to stock up on toilet paper and festive napkins.
- Take some time to perform maintenance on your drains. We recommend using BioOne to get rid of any buildup and keep your drains flowing smoothly. There’s nothing worse than having to tell your guests that a bathroom is out of order.
- Have clean towels ready for anyone spending the night. You also may want to consider doing a few loads of laundry now before your guests arrive. This way you’ll be able to accommodate those who tend to stick around a bit longer than expected.
- Remember to only run the dishwasher when it’s full. Sure, you may need to do a few extra cycles due to an increase in the amount of dirty dishes, but running your machine when it’s not full is only wasting water and energy.
