The month of September means that most children and families are back to school and dealing with the schedules that come with that time of year. With fall sports, long days, extracurricular activities, and back-to-school nights, your home may often get neglected. Sierra Vista Maintenance has collected some tips to prep your home for back to school and busy schedules.
1- Create A Schedule
With a shorter amount of daylight and more activities to accomplish in the day, you may have to create a schedule for those in your home to also include cleaning. This can include exterior maintenance and cleaning. A calendar can help you and others to know what needs to get done that day or that week. Some options to include in your calendar could be, vacuuming, sweeping porches, raking leaves, cleaning out dryer vents, picking up toys, or taking out the trash and picking up trash around the home.
2- Tackle Tasks On The Weekend
With school taking over our day-to-day lives and bedtime routines, the easiest time to clean might be on the weekends. You may not be excited about using your weekend to perform home maintenance but this gives you more time to complete them well. This can be a good time to remove AC units from windows, clean windows, or do yard work.
If you are home during the day, try to begin cleaning and outdoor sprucing while the children are at school. This gives you the freedom to get tasks done while no one else is around. For those who are not home during the day, these other tips may help prep your home for back to school.
3- Unpredictable Weather
Preparing for the weather can be hard to do. During a busy school year, it is important to prep your home for back to school and winter weather before it gets here. Take care of your gutters, exterior, and yard before the weather gets crisp and unbearable to work in. Living in California, you may not see snow or ice as much as those in other states. However, leaves, sticks, and high wind do tend to be common issues in California and can make it hard to keep your home clean.
If you do live in a place with snow, rain, and ice, you will want to clean your gutters of debris before this weather hits. Removing mold and mildew on your roof before it gets covered by moisture can also help improve the look and health of your home.
4- Roof And Gutter Maintenance
Sierra Vista Maintenance offers maintenance to prep your home for back to school. If you feel that you don’t have the resources or time to do these home cleaning items, we can come and prep your home for the busy months ahead.
We know that heading back to school and into the cooler months can become time-consuming. Our technicians are here to help you keep your home looking clean and elegant. Keeping your roof and gutters clean means that moisture moves away from your home and doesn’t do any damage to your property.
5- Pressure Washing
Before we get back into the full swing of back-to-school, pressure washing can be a great way to make your home clean through the end of the year. Pressure washing can help remove debris from your home safely. Sierra Vista Maintenance uses effective cleaning solutions that will not damage your exterior paint or plants. We want to clean your home and protect your investment, not damage what is already there. Choosing to pressure wash with a professional company protects your home investment, and prevents you from having to climb on the roof or ladder to reach your home.
