Prepare Your Home For Winter Season

No matter if we want that or not, summer is already coming to an end, autumn is just around the corner and with the way time flies, before we even understand, very soon it will be wintertime. But do not get disappointed, wintertime is a blessed time for many, while others that are fans of the warmer and longer days can still take some advantage and benefits from the colder season. In fact, winter is really not that apocalyptic time of the year, no matter how we see it now, and with a few simple tips and tricks, we can make the colder season feel amazing. After all, this is the most wonderful time of the year!

As we recommend many times already, preparation and planning ahead is the key to each seasonal transition. Preparedness will make your life much easier and enjoyable and if you make sure to do always on time and not pile all chores and necessities for last minute, you definitely will enjoy the upcoming days. Seasonal house cleaning is a very important thing to keep in mind and do, especially when it comes to getting ready for winter.

Considering the fact how much of your day you are going to spend inside the house, for all of you summer lovers, a clean, neat and cosy house will definitely be more bearable and enjoyable for sure. Of course, seasonal cleaning, although having a one-off cleaning character is still a very time-consuming and not that easy task and it includes some major chores like upholstery, carpet cleaning, taking care of each nook and corner of the house, etc., but at the end it all worth it!

Speaking of winter house cleaning, is your house prepared for when the winter winds start to blow and the town is covered under a thick layer of fluffy white snow? Winter brings some special seasonal changes to an organised home and some very important requirements to the not so organised one. No matter where on the planet you are leaving at, winter can also bring some surprises in storms that won’t allow you to show your nose outside the house without icicles quickly forming on it and being prepared properly can save you a lot of headache and nerves. Here is what we do mean exactly!

Get ready for the winter snow, ice and rain by preventing serious messes and protecting your home with:

  • Snow shovel
  • De-icing compound
  • Waterproof floor mats

Household emergency supplies include:

  • Food that does not require heating or refrigeration (mostly canned food)
  • Can opener
  • Paper plates and plastic utensils
  • 1 gallon of water per person per day
  • Flashlights and spare batteries
  • Battery-powered radio and clock
  • Cellular phone
  • First-aid kit
  • At least four-day supply of prescription medicines
  • Blanket and winter appropriate clothing for each member
  • Do not forget your pets – pet food and additional water for them

It often happens winter storms to find you driving the roads and coping with ice, rain and snow is neither easy nor recommended, because of that try and find yourself a safe place and make sure your car is in good condition:

  • Check antifreeze
  • Replace old batteries or check them regularly
  • Keep the gas tank nearly full to avoid freezing 
  • Check tires and your spare tire too

Here is what to make sure you always have in your car:

  • Bag of sand for spreading under slipping tires
  • Ice scraper
  • Jumper cables
  • Small shovel
  • Tire chains
  • Reflective triangle
  • Blanket
  • Flashlight and spare batteries
  • Enough drinking water
  • First aid kit
