Prepare the Floors
Tripping or falling hazards are common during the holidays so make sure you prevent this by checking and fixing loose boards or tiles on your flooring and loose screws on the hand rails. Also make sure the slippery rugs are slicked down or taped on the floors to prevent any type of slipping accident.
Check your Oven
The top burner elements should be cleaned and you can leave the rest be. You can save the big clean up as a post holiday task.
Refrigerators should be checked.
This appliance will be on of the busiest things you will have in your house for the next couple of weeks. Clean cold air vents, clean blocked freezer vents, loose handle screw should be tightened and burned out lights should be replaced. It would be a nightmare when this appliance fails once you have all those leftovers.
Bathrooms should be ready
If you’re planning on hosting a family or friends gathering during the holidays, your bathroom should be prepared, too. Make sure that you have enough stock of tissue papers and toiletries. Inspect if there is any clogging and make sure that it is fixed before the holidays steps in.
Last but not the least, keep Home Safety in mind
If you’re expecting babies and toddlers, make sure your house is Child proof. Double check if you’re first aid kit is complete. Change some detectors and their batteries and of course, keep a fire extinguisher handy in the kitchen. Nothing ruins a great holiday better than a minor accident turning into a disaster especially if you’re unprepared for the first aid.
