Ring in the New Year with a Sparkling Home: 10 Resolutions for Effortless Maintenance

As the year draws to a close, our thoughts naturally turn towards resolutions. While self-improvement is a noble pursuit, let’s not forget the importance of maintaining our most cherished asset: our home. Here at FloriFence, we believe a well-maintained home is a happy home, and a little effort goes a long way. So, this year, why not resolve to tackle some manageable home maintenance tasks and keep your property looking its best?

Fencing Resolutions:

  1. Inspect and Clean: Give your fence a thorough inspection. Look for loose posts, warped pickets, or rust (if you have a metal fence). Wash away dirt and grime with a hose and mild soap solution. A clean fence not only looks better but also lasts longer.
  2. Tighten Up: Over time, fence posts can loosen slightly. Tighten any loose screws, bolts, or nails to ensure your fence remains sturdy and secure.
  3. Stain and Seal (Wood Fences Only): If you have a wooden fence, winter is a great time to apply a fresh coat of stain or sealant. This protects the wood from the elements and extends its lifespan. FloriFence can recommend high-quality stains and sealants perfect for Florida’s climate.
  4. Trim Back Overgrowth: Bushes and trees growing too close to your fence can damage it over time. Trim back any overgrown vegetation to maintain proper air circulation and prevent moisture build-up around the fence.
  5. Gate Maintenance: Don’t forget your gate! Lubricate any hinges and rollers to ensure smooth operation. Check for loose hardware and make any necessary repairs.

Beyond the Fence:

  1. Clean Your Gutters: Clogged gutters can lead to water damage around your home. Make a resolution to clean your gutters twice a year, once in the fall and again in the spring.
  2. Inspect Your Roof: A damaged roof can lead to serious problems. Schedule a professional inspection to identify any potential issues and address them before they become major repairs.
  3. Test Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors: Replace the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. These life-saving devices should be tested and replaced at recommended intervals.
  4. Deep Clean Your Appliances: Give your major appliances like your oven, refrigerator, and washing machine a thorough cleaning. This not only improves their efficiency but also extends their lifespan.
  5. Declutter and Organize: Dedicate some time each month to decluttering and organizing your home. A clutter-free space feels more peaceful and makes cleaning a breeze.
