They say home is where your heart is but a lovelier, better organized, and more comfortable place to live will surely work wonders in your personal and professional life.
Reduce your use of energy
How about trying to reduce the strain on the planet’s natural resources while improving the quality of your home and saving a monthly strain on your wallet Going green could be a great way to make this year truly remarkable. Solar panels or a hybrid car can make a big difference. On top of that, remember to turn off lights while you’re not using them and turn the taps off when you’re brushing your teeth. These seemly small things can make a world of difference.
Keep your indoor air clean
Indoor air quality is one of the most important indicators of the quality of the environment you are living in. Indoor air can be full of contaminants like dust, pollen and mold spores. The problem can be even more severe during winter when we prefer to keep our doors and windows shut all the time.
Prolonged exposure to polluted air can lead to complications like chronic respiratory disease, heart disease and lung cancer. The irritants in your home can be eliminated by maintaining your HVAC system and changing furnace filters regularly.
Make your house safe and sound
The best way to avoid a potential tragedy is to plan ahead and make sure all your safety alerts are installed and working. Besides installing fire detectors, check your house for gases like radon and carbon monoxide also.
Get your space organized
Getting rid of clutter is the key to focus in your life and goals. The act of organization can be quite overwhelming if you think of it as a giant project, but it might be less overwhelming to think of it room by room. Keeping your space organized basically comes down to two things if you stick to them. One is to periodically get rid of whatever things you don’t use often or don’t like at all. The other is to only bring in things that you actually need. Creating extra space for storage is another way to keep your home organized. With added space, you can store your possessions easily and know where everything is when you need it.
Work out a system to keep your house clean
Part of organization is setting up a system to keep it clean and tidy. Everybody loves to live in a clean house but almost everyone dreads the act of cleaning itself. Coming up with a solid plan to keep your house clean could be the best thing you did this year. Devise a daily, weekly as well as monthly plan to keep your entire house clean.
It’s best to make a system so it doesn’t seem so overwhelming. You can wipe windows and mirrors first and then move on to sweeping the floors. And also, keep the cleansing utensils like sponge, scraper, cleaning cloths, plastic bags and apron in a place where you can easily find them.
Protect your windows from the sun
In high temperate climate, heat from sunlight can get your house feel like a greenhouse, but our glass window installations experts have a device for your benefit and it’s called window sunscreen.
