Revitalizing Your Home During Winter it might seem like an inconvenience to make sure your home is ready for winter, the long-term benefits will be well worth it. From checking your furnace and inspecting pipes to reversing ceiling fans and updating batteries, these winter home maintenance chores are vital to ensure your home is prepared for snowy conditions, freezing temperatures and icy roads.
One of the most important steps to take is insulating your attic and walls. This will help keep your home warm during the cold months while saving you money on heating costs.
Cleaning windows and replacing dark drapes with lighter sheer curtains can also help bring some life back into your home. If you want to add a fresh pop of color to your space, painting is an easy way to revamp a room’s style.
Revitalizing Your Home During Winter
Wood is particularly susceptible to damage during the winter, and it can fade, crack, splinter or get water logged. However, revitalizing wooden furniture, decks, outdoor wood trim and wall panels is easier than you might think.
Adding some extra protection to your home against Michigan’s cold and snowy weather will save you the expense of repairing costly damages caused by ice dams, roof leaks or smashed windows. Adding gutter drainage, cleaning out your chimney, preparing outdoor faucets by draining them and insulating exposed pipes will all make your home less vulnerable to the elements.
