Home Improvement Projects for Winter
Remember last month and those promises you made? Did your New Year’s resolutions include goals to improve your house, save money, or make your life more organized? Winter’s cold days plus those big goals mean that now is the perfect time to spend some energy on home improvement projects. Thompson Brothers Exterminating and Waterproofing is here as a trusted partner to help you check off some of those New Year’s goals.
Project 1: Declutter
Cleaning out the whole house, or even just a single room, will not only improve the look and feel of your home, but it will help you feel calmer and get more organized.
Additionally, a decluttered house is a safer house. Messy, cluttered basements, crawlspaces, attics and garages offer welcome, warm homes to mice, cockroaches, spiders and other pests. Even wildlife like raccoons and possums may find a way into your garage if there are enough warm, dark places to hide. Take the time to remove old boxes, move bins off the floor and onto shelves, and toss out all trash. Cleaning out your rooms will help prevent pests from making winter nests in your home.
Project 2: Fix up the crawl space or basement
Eager to save money on energy costs? Want to improve your home’s value? Hoping to avoid expensive future problems? Then make it a priority this winter to waterproof and insulate your crawl space or basement. Adding insulation can help save on heating and cooling expenses. Waterproofing the crawl space or basement
ensures that spring’s heavy rains and floods won’t cause major damage – either in the form of standing water or mold. Contact Thompson Brothers now
to waterproof your basement or crawl space. Invest a little now to reap the benefits for years to come.
Project 3: Clean and paint
You’ve been staring at your walls all winter. Is it time for a new color? Winter is a great time to stay indoors and add a fresh coat of paint to your walls. The new color will make your home feel fresh, clean and brighter. But before you paint, make sure that all wood is clean and free of mold and insect damage. The professionals at Thompson Brothers can help repair termite damage as well as repair mold and water issues
that may have affected the wood in your basement or crawl space. Start with a clean, prepared surface and your paint will last longer and your home will be healthier.
