Rainy Day Home Projects
It never fails. You’re already running late and manage to hit every red light. You settle in for a night of binge-watching your favorite show and the cable goes out. Or you clear your weekend so you can finally tackle all those home maintenance to-dos when suddenly it starts raining cats and dogs with no end in sight.
Fear not – there are plenty of tasks to accomplish inside your home no matter what Mother Nature has going on. Here are just a few of them.
Clean the dryer vent. Neglecting to remove lint can be a costly and disastrous mistake. Lint build-up causes a dryer to run less efficiently and can even start a house fire. Use a vacuum to remove accumulated lint, and don’t forget to empty the lint trap after every dryer cycle.
Update a light fixture. A small update that delivers a big impact, this inexpensive project can be completed in less than an hour. Just be sure to cut the power before starting.
Secure anything wobbly. From handrails to doorknobs and everything in between, you can greatly improve the safety of your home with just a screwdriver.
Clean the dishwasher. Yes, dishwashers need to be cleaned, too. Over time, food particles, soap scum, and other grime can build up inside, leaving your dishes less than clean.
Organize cabinets and pantry. Wondering what’s hiding in the dark recesses of your kitchen cabinets or pantry? It’s high time you purge those expired canned peaches and create an organizational system that works. Consider using clear containers, pull-out shelves and Lazy Susans to keep canned, jarred, and dry goods within easy reach.
Paint a room. Give any room an instant face-lift with a fresh coat of paint. Add a bold accent wall in the dining room or turn your bedroom into the serene and soothing haven you’ve always dreamed of.
Change the HVAC filter. Can’t recall the last time you changed your furnace or AC filter? Then it’s probably been too long. Doing so will help your system run more efficiently, provide cleaner indoor air, help your system last longer, and keep your home heating and cooling costs in check.
