Conway Handyman: New Year’s Resolution for Your Home

handyman resolutionsA tradition around the new year is to create a list of resolutions. This helps you plan for a fresh start. You may find it difficult to keep your resolutions after a week. You’ll want to make these five resolutions for the new year. To see great results, you just need to revisit them several times throughout the year.

1 Create a long-term plan

You don’t have to keep these resolutions up all the time, so it is important to plan ahead. You can make a list of the tasks you have to complete each month or every quarter to maintain an organized home. Keep this list handy and refer to it often for reminders.

2 Clean Room by Room

Cleaning is a key part of the beginning of the year. You need to get rid of all the wrapping paper and clear up any mess left from the holiday party. It’s simple enough to continue cleaning your home, even though you have already done all of that. You can go room-by-room, making sure you focus on the areas that receive the most foot traffic. Clean, vacuum, rinse and then repeat until your home is spotless. Every quarter, which is mid-April, mid-July and mid-September, you should do a deep cleaning room by room.

3 Purge Your Spaces

While cleaning is a great place for starting, you should also take the initiative to get rid of things that you don’t use. This can be daunting at first but keep going. You’ll spend an entire year trying to prove that you don’t need something if it doesn’t see the light of day for a year or more.

This step requires you to be systematic. Do not just open drawers and closets and start pulling stuff out. You will soon tire yourself out, and the piles of stuff that end up on the ground are more likely to discourage you than encourage. Use the same method you used to clean, but take it one room at  a time. Although the process may take longer, it is much easier and more likely to be completed.

4 Fresh Flowers to Bring Home

Although it may seem like a small thing, you will be amazed at the effect fresh flowers can make on different rooms in your house. Florals are a great way to makeover a space that is less expensive than some other options. The right color, height, and arrangement can make a room look great. The right plants can be used to clean the air or provide aromatherapy at home to help you relax and lift your mood.

5 Maintenance Jobs

Regular maintenance is necessary for certain parts of your home throughout the year. The air conditioner unit, for example, should be checked before summer starts. Before you light the first fire in late fall, your chimney must be maintained. Both spring and fall should be used to clean your gutters.

Don’t rely on your memory to schedule handyman appointments throughout the year. Instead, get down to business and start calling now. Ask for help to schedule appointments months ahead of time and then mark them on your calendar.
