by Houston Texas Painters - September 24, 2020

It’s that time of year again, when the hot days are over, and the cooler seasons and the holidays are just around the corner. Surely, after spending the previous months at home during the lockdown, you might have spotted some urgent fixings and remodeling ideas. The following list of fall cleaning tips includes some of the essential home updates to make the next seasons more bearable and pleasant and start feeling festive. Keep reading and discover six essential home projects for this fall.

1. Enhance your lighting

This is something you’ll find in a lot of home improvement tips for 2020, especially after the lockdown. Low temperatures and fewer daylight hours affect the mood of everyone, with many people are also thinking of remodeling their windows or adding a new one after being motivated by the recent pandemic lockdown. Either way, adding more natural light to your home is always a good idea to avoid seasonal depression. Use this time and attention to fix some window cracks. However, if you don’t want to spend too much money or don’t have space for a window remodeling, try buying new and potent lighting for your kitchen, living room, and home office.

2. Get a new garage door

If you struggle with freezing winter temperatures at home, an excellent way to prevent it is by changing your garage door. Makes no sense? Sure it does! When the garage door isn’t insulated, it can cause major thermal losses and make winters less bearable. Install a new one and make sure it seals properly. Also, check for some cracks or leaks in your garage and sidings of your home.

3. Inspect your roof and siding

Before it rains again or the temperature goes down, it’s better to do that roof job you have avoided. Roofing material often needs higher temperatures to seal, and dry surfaces are good allies when you are nine feet above the ground. However, talk to a professional for better results and always use protective gear.

4. Add some color

Like adding a new window to increase your natural light, updating your color scheme can enhance your mood. Also, painting your walls is often one of the cheapest ways to remodel your home and feel somewhere new in your same old rooms. Fresh and bright colors might keep you from feeling blue, or you can use some brown-ish, red-ish colors to feel festive. Check some Autumn painting ideas here.

5. Do a kitchen remodeling

Your kitchen will be the main scenario for delicious meals and joyful family gatherings in the next months. What better time to remodel it that autumn? Sometimes you need small details and some simple patterns in the backsplash to give your kitchen new life. Nothing gives new life to a room than enhanced light, not to mention that you can distinguish the cilantro from the parsley a lot faster. Check these kitchen remodeling ideas for this fall.

6. Clean and store your gardening tools

Last but not least, you won’t need much of your gardening tools at this time of the year. No list of fall cleaning tips can go without mentioning the need to increase your gardening tools’ useful life and avoid rusty surfaces, clean them properly with water, soap, and some vinegar or bleach to get rid of mold. Put them on the garage and make space in your yard for the falling leaves to accumulate. That way, it will be a lot easier to sweep them away.
