Essential Tips for Preparing Your Home for the Holidays

Christmas lights

Hosting family and friends during the holidays can be stressful. Follow these easy tips for preparing your home for the holidays and look forward to a stress-free holiday season.

 

Slip/Fall Proof

Nothing will ruin your holiday celebration quicker than someone getting hurt. Make sure the sidewalk, driveway, and entrance to your home are clean and free of snow and ice. Also, inspect handrails and steps and be certain that nothing is loose or damaged.

 

Child Proof

If you have kids of your own, or if your guests will be bringing their children along, take a few extra precautions before everyone shows up. Cover electrical outlets, move heavy items such as lamps away from table edges and block stairways. Do this before your guests arrive because kids can be hard to keep an eye on with so much company around.

 

Don’t Clean the Oven

Perhaps this sounds counter-intuitive, but trust us here. Your oven’s self-cleaning cycle puts a lot of strain on your oven and can cause an oven failure. Of course, the last thing you want is to be left without an oven over the holidays. Wipe down the stove top to make things look neat but leave the deep cleaning for after the guests have left.

 

Make this holiday the easiest yet by following these simple tips for preparing your home and focusing on what’s really important: coming together to celebrate with family and friends. We at Suski Chevrolet Buick wish you and your loved ones a happy and stress-free holiday season.
