2021 Resolutions For Southwest Florida Homeowners
We can all agree that 2020 has been a challenging year for everyone. So it is essential to be positive and look forward to next year, a year that will hopefully be better for everyone. That is why we have made this list of resolutions for your home, because it really is true that you are in a better frame of mind when you have a clean, safe, happy, and healthy space.
Repair Anything That Needs Fixing
2021 is going to be a great year to repair anything that needs fixing in your home. That way, you have peace of mind knowing that your home is a safe, secure place for your family. Whether it’s a leaky faucet that has been driving you nuts or something as simple as painting the living room a more neutral, relaxing color, repairing even small things in your house will make a big difference in the long run with your health. Studies have shown that repairing things in your home actually reduces the cost of ER visits and improves the homeowner’s happiness overall.
Annual roof inspections are important to identify any vulnerabilities in your roof, as it’s better to catch issues early before damage is caused to other parts of the home. This especially holds true in cities such as Naples or Fort Myers due to hurricanes.
When your house is clean, you feel a sense of relief. So whether it’s your daily cleaning, a big spring cleaning, or you just feel like there is too much clutter in your home, keeping your home clean and tidy is always a good resolution. A clean home makes you feel more calm and secure knowing that everything has a specific purpose and place.
It is crucial to be prepared for hurricanes here in Southwest Florida, where hurricane season is June 1st through November 30th. Make sure to create a family disaster plan if you do not already have one in place and prepare to evacuate if an evacuation order is placed. It is also important to either add or inspect your current hurricane proofing elements (shutters, impact windows and doors, etc), to shore up your home’s protection.
Resolutions are an essential part of life, and keeping your house safe and healthy can actually spark positive benefits in yourself, like how a clean house reduces stress and anxiety. We hope you consider these tips for your home to start 2021 off with a bang!
