We hope everyone is staying safe, healthy and AT HOME as much as possible in these strange times. This is a challenging situation for everyone in many different ways — this too shall pass and we will all get through this together. 

For those of you who are able to stay home – we’ve come up with a few options to help keep you busy through the long lockdown days. 

First up – Top items to tackle in your home! What to clean, what to get rid of and what to spruce up to get your home ready for sale – or just for your enjoyment – when things get back to normal.

  1. Clean out and organize your garage and/or storage locker – don’t forget a big sweep!
  2. Clean all windows – inside + out! 
  3. Clean/dust each individual blind in your home 
  4. Clean out closets and toiletries – set aside a bin for donations when this is possible again

  6. Magic eraser all marks + scuffs on walls + baseboards 
  7. Power wash outdoor patios, balconies and/or decks and clean + rearrange your patio furniture 
  8. Clean individual light fixtures and replace burnt out or missing bulbs
