Some Organizational Hacks You’ll Love
The first step to loving your home is organization. It’s easy for clutter to pile up but taking control of your space is the first step to loving your home even more.
The following are 5 tips to get you started.
1. Make a Plan
Before you start any organization in your home, make a plan to help you see the final vision. Many homeowners simply start going through their stuff without conceptualizing how it will all go back into the space. We suggest making a list or even a map that will help you know how much space you have and how to use it in the best way.
2. Clean as You Go
If you’re taking things out of a room, storage area, or off shelves, don’t start putting anything back until you thoroughly clean the space. This means dusting, sweeping, mopping, vacuuming, disinfecting and thoroughly deep cleaning. Many people will skip this step, which defeats the entire purpose of organizing the area into more usable space.
3. Use Labels
Labels help keep things organized once your space is put back together. Labels can be used in closets to help you identify boxes of items stored away, such as seasonal clothes, or even in a pantry so you know exactly where specific food items are kept. Labeling prevents you from throwing unrelated items in the same bins.
4. See What You Have
Along with labels, you also should use bins that allow you to see what you have. Clear bins, easily available at organizational stores, will help you keep things neat if you can see what you have at a glance. You won’t have to go through boxes to find out whether you need more of something — you can see what is inside without having to pull the bin off the shelf.
5. Sturdy Shelves
Build some sturdy shelves in a basement or closet to handle heavier bins and maximize the space you have. This allows you to use floor to ceiling to tuck away memorabilia or seasonal items you want to keep but don’t need access to as often.If you’re ready to tackle a big home organizational project and need a helping hand give us a call at 248-406-4989 or book online
Weather-Stripping: Saving $ By Sealing Your Home.
What To Gain?
There are little hidden gaps around door frames and windows, between baseboards, floorboards and by outlets that can all let out your heating or cooling which is costing you a lot of money in the long run.
As much as 5-10% can be saved on your energy bill. On average you can save about 7.5% on your monthly payments just from sealing air leaks with weather stripping and caulking. This’ll give you at least $48-$138 extra in your pocket.
How to Fix leaks!
There are varying methods to dealing with leaks in your house: Weather stripping and caulking works very well for smaller holes. For bigger holes spray foam or other insulation will most likely have to be done.
Sadly, repairing a leak won’t last forever. Over time the insulation can start to bring in the weather, so you’ll want to take note of where gaps and leaks are likely to occur such as:
- Around electrical outlets, boxes, or other items cut into the wall.
- Between the wall and the floor.
- Around plumbing as it enters a room.
- Gaps in the attic, basement or crawl space.
- Around the attic door.
- Around the chimney.
- Around built-in light fixtures, particularly on the ceiling.
- Around windows and doors.
You can save money and the environment with just a couple DIY projects!
It won’t even leave a dent in your wallet as most of the materials can be bought at a hardware store for less than $30 to $50. So clear up that calendar and make some time for a weekend project and save yourself some cash!
If you believe the work is out of your skill range or you simply want to make sure the job is done right - just give us a call at 248.406.4989.We can assist you in finding where the air is escaping your house through an inspection.
