The holidays are a time for friends, family, and loved ones to gather together. If you’re hosting holiday celebrations this year at your Green Valley, Arizona, home, it can be stressful making sure everything is just right. Here are three tips to help you prepare your home for holiday company:
It’s more efficient to prepare your home ahead of time. It’s one of the best ways to ensure that everything goes smoothly for holiday events. If you’re having guests stay over, wash the sheets and make up the guest beds beforehand so you don’t have to rush at the last minute. Change your HVAC filter ahead of time to ensure clean, fresh air. You may also want to schedule HVAC maintenance to catch any potential issues before your guests arrive — you don’t want to have an uncomfortable home while hosting!
It can be difficult to keep track of everything going on around the holidays, but staying organized can make a huge difference. Taking tasks one at a time and designating days to complete them can help reduce your stress and give you a clearer timeline. If you’re planning on having any professional work done, like an indoor air quality assessment, make sure to keep track of your appointments in your phone or a planner so you don’t forget.
Finally, comfort is vital to a successful holiday gathering. You don’t want your guests to be sweating or freezing when it comes time to celebrate together. If you have a smart or programmable thermostat, adjust it before your guests arrive so it doesn’t automatically kick into your pre-programmed schedule. Having more people in your home will naturally raise the temperature due to an increase in body heat. Take that into consideration when setting your thermostat.
