November and December are the months for decorating your home for the holidays. Before you put up Christmas decor you will need to prep your home for Christmas lights on your exterior and gutters for the decorations. Sierra Vista Maintenance can help improve the look and health of your home by cleaning gutters, pressure washing exteriors, and cleaning your driveway. Here are some areas to clean and prep before the busy season of the holidays begins.
1- Professional Gutter Cleaning
When you prep your home for Christmas lights, you need to clean out the gutters they will be attached to. Removing old hooks, leaves, dirt, and other debris from your gutters will ensure that your lights can attach properly and they don’t form icicles from overflowing water.
Clean gutters help protect your home from flooding but also make it look cared for and professional. In order to prep your home for Christmas lights you should take the time to clean anything you have been putting off. This includes more than just gutters, in places like the living room, your walkways, fireplace, and flowerbeds.
2- Clear And Streak Free Windows
Seeing the snow, or your neighbor’s Christmas decor largely happens through your windows. But they can’t be seen if your windows are streaky, dusty, or covered in grime. Working with Sierra Vista Maintenance can get you clear windows on both the interior and exterior of your home.
Clear windows make your home feel more expensive and can make a good viewing spot for your Christmas tree or other Christmas decorations that you want onlookers to see. Our window cleaners work on many homes in California and can have them look brand new within a matter of hours.
3- Exterior Improvement With House Washing
If you are going to clean other smaller parts of your home in order to prep your home for Christmas lights, you should consider cleaning the entire exterior of your home first. Before you put up decorations or clean windows, removing dust, dirt, hard water, cobwebs, bird nests, and other droppings will make your decor stand out from the home. When passersby are looking at your home, you will want them to notice the glimmering Christmas lights and not your dirty home.
4- Attaching Lights To Rain Gutters
Homeowners often use plastic clips to attach Christmas lights to their gutters. Removing these plastic clips each year before installing new lights will help your gutters to stay clear during the winter.
When attaching Christmas lights to your home make sure you are using proper safety equipment and using caution while on a ladder. Putting up Christmas lights can be a whole family affair but can be dangerous if your roof is at high heights. If your home is multiple stories, it may be best to hire a professional to install them and save you from injury.
5- Hire A Professional Installer
During the cold winter months when you are looking to install Christmas lights, the ice and snow may have already fallen, so choosing a professional to install them can keep you and your family safe. Enlisting the help of a professional will save you time during the busy holiday season and will keep you from putting yourself or your family members at risk. Professionals can help you prep your home from Christmas lights and will also be able to take your lights down after the season and remove plastic clips so they don’t clog your gutters.
