How to Keep Your New House Looking Fresh

If you’ve just moved into a new house, you’ll have the luxury of not having to do much work. The inside and outside of the house will be clean and fresh, so you won’t have to worry about spending money to get it up to standard. However, it won’t always be like that. Every house will need to be maintained. Whether it’s because of extreme weather conditions or the kids having a bad day, it’s likely you’ll need to do some repairs at some point. Here are some of the things you’ll need to remember to keep your house looking fresh.

Clean Your Gutters
It’s easy for your gutters to get clogged up with damp leaves, dirt and even bird’s nests. It’s important to clean your gutters every few months so water has a clear path to travel. If you have to climb a ladder to get it done, you may want to ask some to support you, so you’re as safe as possible. Don’t attempt to climb a ladder if you think you’ll be unsafe. It won’t cost much to hire a handy-man and the job doesn’t usually take long.

Take Care of Your Garage
Your garage isn’t like the rest of the house. It’s usually more susceptible to damp and rodents. Make sure you check your garage every few weeks for damp, mould and rats or mice. Many people have the habit of turning their garage into a storage room for things they no longer need, but that just gives rodents more hiding places. It’s also important to maintain your garage doors. The doors can take a beating in all weathers and paint can be stripped off easily.

Outdoor Walls
When you first move into a house, the paint outside will be new and clean. However, it doesn’t take long for walls to become dirty or paint to chip. You may not even notice for a while, as dirty walls can become ‘part of the furniture’. But, you’ll certainly notice the difference when the walls are cleaned and new paint is applied. It’s part and parcel of keeping a house looking its best.

Your Floors
Your floors are walked on all day, every day. They’re used and abused and very rarely get taken care of. Whether you have wooden flooring or carpet, there will always be days when spillages occur or family traipse through with wet and muddy shoes. You may want your family to be as comfortable as possible but you don't want to be spending a lot of money to replace your floors every year. You can maintain your floors by having a ‘no shoes in the house’ rule and protecting it from large amounts of water.

Fresh Paint
A splash of fresh paint on your walls can make a huge difference. One of the most used rooms in the house is the living room, and the walls often get the brunt of it. Marks can appear without you realising it but painting every few months will ensure your walls are bright and fresh.
