November Houston Home Maintenance

Taking care of seasonal Houston home maintenance is a great way to extend the life of certain elements of your home and head off larger maintenance problems later. Keller Williams Northeast Realty wants to help you protect your home investment.

November means turkey and family visits! Review the below tips to get your home family and guest ready!

Indoor Houston Home Maintenance:

  1. Remember to adjust your thermostats for greater energy efficiency. Or, look into some of the newer thermostats that adjust to your family’s habits to save energy and money in the long run.
  2. Organize your pantry and refrigerator. Any canned goods to donate to a charity? Now’s the time! Make some room for all those holiday goodies. Organization is the key to low holiday stress!
  3. Expecting house guests over the holidays? Why not give your guest bedding and towels a wash or fluff in the dryer to freshen the space and cut down on your to-do list the day before guests arrive.

Outdoor Houston Home Maintenance:

  1. Clear your pathways and patios of any fall debris to freshen your front-of-home look, fast! Don’t forget to brush the pine needles off the top of your bushes and plants.
  2. Houston doesn’t typically need to worry about below freezing temperatures in November. However, we’re forecasted to have an abnormally cold winter this year. Keep an eye on the weather and remember to cover your plants and small trees susceptible to freezing temperatures.
  3. Any extra layer of mulch can help keep your plants warm during the cold temperatures this winter. Add a layer now, keep your plants safe until next year!
