Got any plans this weekend? If not, why not get some important work done around the house? There are loads of small jobs you can tackle this weekend that won’t take up too much of your free time. And your house will certainly look better for it! So this weekend, get off the couch and tick off the following jobs on your to-do list!
Clear Out Your Closet
When was the last time you cleaned out all the junk in your closet? If you have been chucking stuff in there for the past few months, it could be time to take a look at it this weekend. Once you get rid of all the stuff in there that you don’t need, you will have a lot more room for clothes and other things you need to keep a hold of. So what do you do with everything you don’t need? First of all, see if it is worth selling things. If not, get in touch with a company who specialize in hard rubbish collection who can collect your junk for you.
Clean Your Oven
Another job that often gets neglected is cleaning the oven. You need to aim to clean out your oven every couple of months of so. Otherwise, the grease and grime could build up and become a fire hazard. So, as you can see, this is one of the most important jobs in your kitchen! The best way to clean out your oven is with baking soda and vinegar. This will easily clean off all the dirt without you having to use any harsh chemicals.
Clean Your Carpets
Carpets are another part of the home that often gets ignored. Some households simply hire a professional carpet cleaning company once a year to give their rugs and carpets a good going over. But why not save some cash and do yours yourself this weekend? There are two different ways to tackle them. First of all, you can simply target problem areas with a heavy duty stain remover. Or you can invest in a carpet and rug cleaner so you can do all your flooring yourself.
Cover Your Pond
It’s a good idea to cover your pond throughout winter. This can help the fish and other pond life survive through the cold months. Cover it now before the trees start to lose their leaves. Otherwise, fallen leaves will decompose in the pond water and contaminate it. It’s best to just cover the pond with some netting. That way you can easily check the water. If you notice that it freezes over, be sure to crack the ice. Then oxygen can still get down to the fish through the water. Cleaning out all the reeds and other plant life is also worth doing now. That’s because it can help the pond environment flourish once the spring comes around again.
None of these jobs will take you a long time, so you don’t have to worry about them taking up your entire weekend.
