I can’t believe Fall is already here. Winter will be here before I’m ready for it. There’s so many things you have to do to prepare your home for winter. Let’s look at just a few ways on how to get your home ready for winter.
How do I get my home ready for winter?
There are some easy things you can do to get your home ready for winter. Things like making sure the water hose is empty and brought into the garage. Then you cover up your outside nozzles with those inexpensive covers so that if the wind gets to being so very frigid your pipes won’t burst at the faucets. These are just two easy ways to help winterize your home.
Then you have to get your furniture ready. I usually take my cushions inside and clean my furniture that sits on my deck and front porch. My umbrella comes in too. It just makes sense to protect any of your outdoor items that are covered in cloth. The cold winter can be so harsh on any cloth items so just go ahead and take them inside.
Once you’ve cleaned and gotten these items put away it’s a good idea to paint any wood that you notice has paint missing. Protecting the wood that cares for your house is so important. Look for any cracks that need to be filled around the windows and doors too.
If you have a wooden porch swing like I do it’s a must to seal it for winter. Let’s get that wood protected. This is my grandmother’s swing. That means it’s at least 45 years old. So I want it to be around for many more years.
Don’t forget to pressure wash your vinyl on your house too. You need to get the mold and mildew off your home at minimum once a year. You can also spot clean the vinyl on your porch with Mean Green cleaner and degreaser. That’s what I use if it’s just a quick spot clean up. If you have a beautiful house it just makes sense to take care of it.
Taking care of your home from the inside to the outside is something we must do each year. I think it’s a great idea to always keep your house and furniture protected from the elements. Doing these things will help you keep your home and patio in tip top shape. What tips do you have to prepare your home for winter? Leave me a comment!
