How to Freshen Your House in St. Albert for the Fall
- Get Rid of Dust
Unfortunately, you’re going to need to bring out the duster and the vacuum before buyers view your home. Dusting hard-to-reach surfaces like fans, vents and shelving is essential. You’ll also want to remove any dust from your baseboards and/or walls. This will help freshen the room and improve the scent of your home.
- Clean the Windows
Windows are often overlooked when it comes to preparing your home for sale. However, having them professionally cleaned can make a huge difference in the appearance of your home. Dirty windows prevent natural light from entering your home. This can make your home appear darker than it is. To ensure that your home is looking its best and brightest, make sure that you have your windows cleaned professionally!
- Eliminate Odors
Before a showing, it’s critical that your home doesn’t have any strong odours. There are a few ways to ensure that your home smells its best before a showing. First off, you can repaint the inside of your home if you discover a lingering odour that won’t go away. Second, you can avoid cooking foods with strong scents in the days before a showing. For instance, garlic, fish, onions, or bacon. Thirdly, you can do a deep cleaning to make sure everything is smelling fresh and clean!
