Dear homeowners, as much as we wish that we skip this coronavirus time & move to covid-19 free world, it’s not happening soon enough. We have to prepare for the summer & get our homes ready for a comfortable stay. It’s important, now more than ever.
Here’s how you can do it!
- Remove the winter vibe
Right now your home may have the thick draperies, blankets, heavy rugs and an overall, darker theme. Pull out the brighter bedsheets and accessories from your storage, and place them.
Candles could be replaced by vases with fresh flowers and heavy mats and rugs could be replaced by lightweight natural fabrics. Just this small activity would take out the winter vibe and make your home ready for summer.
- Declutter and organize
Plan out a declutter spree. From your refrigerator to your wardrobe, everything that doesn’t scream summer needs to go. Decluttering is a therapeutic activity and can also help you combat anxiety during this unprecedented pandemic.
We suggest you to make a plan of every space in your house used for storage, and schedule days for each of them. It maybe a long and slow process, but it’s worth investing your time in. You never know what treasures you’ll find in your wardrobe hidden by the pile of your daily wear items. So, consider it as an expedition rather than a home organization task and it’ll be much more fun.
- Get your cooling system ready
Fans and air conditioning is necessary to be used in many parts of the world, during summer. For most of us, it’s not a luxury but a basic necessity.
We don’t recommend starting your air conditioning systems without a proper service, however, we suggest you to take caution here for social distancing is of prime important at this time.
- Pest control
Summer months also bring the unwelcome insects. They can not only be a nuisance but also a carrier of diseases like dengue fever and malaria. Make sure you spray your house with appropriate pesticides and have screen doors & windows to ensure pests don’t enter your home.
For cockroaches, you need to reach to the warm areas of your house and use appropriate measures – bug sprays & bug repellents to get rid of them.
