Every year, people make resolutions to lose weight, shop less, save more, spend more time with friends and family, or exercise more. But what about your home? What have you resolved to do to make your home better in 2018?
Here are some possible resolutions to consider to make your home even better in the new year:
Streamline The “Stuff.”
One of the best things you can do to make your home feel bigger and cleaner is to streamline all of your stuff that’s cluttering up the place.
Added bonus? You may find some things that other people would pay their good money to have and pad your wallet a little bit after all of your holiday shopping!
Make Your Home Safe & Sound.
Make sure your fire alarms, carbon monoxide alarms, and radon alarms are all operating correctly and have fresh batteries.
Clean your dryer thoroughly to prevent any fires from happening in your laundry room. Make sure your dryer vent isn’t blocked also.
Automate Your Home (A Little Or A Lot!).
From just installing a smart thermostat to help you regulate your home’s temperature (and your utility bills!) to putting in more smart home options, you can make your life easier. Want to read about some of the things you can do with home automation?

Don’t Buy Anything For Your Home…
...unless you have a specific place for it or need for it in your home. This is especially important if you’ve already decluttered!
Work Out A Home Cleaning Schedule.
So this may not ever be a fun task, but if you create a schedule, it can help keep your house clean - and your stress level down throughout the year. Chances are, you cleaned frantically for at least one of your holiday parties, so keeping it clean from this point will be much better with a set schedule.
Improve Your Indoor Air Quality.
At the very least, resolve to change your air filter in your HVAC system once a month for the year. If your home needs more solutions, think about talking to one of our ServiceOne professionals about our Air Scrubber Plus with ActivePure Technology solution for your home.
