Improve Your Home's Environment

            These suggestions will make you feel better in your home. It is your castle and should be the very best it can be. Ironically, your castle should be a lot more comfortable than a real castle.     


            Take  a couple of weekends and pick from the list of chores that can make your home healthier and more pleasant.


  • Streamline and de-clutter

  • Install "daylight" type light bulbs

  • Give away unused "stuff"   

  • Clean the rubber gasket at the door of front loading clothes washers

  • Replace appliance filters

  • Run a dehumidifier in damp areas

  • Ventilate bathrooms, kitchens, attics and basements

  • Identify and remove things with bad odors


            As a final suggestion, walk through and look at what is inside of  your home. We are talking about your pictures, furnishings, clothes or even paint colors.  If what you see conjures up bad memories or feelings:  get rid of it ! If you notice something that is hidden away that makes you feel good, get it out where you can see it. Now!  That can be a wonderful New Years gift to yourself.
