Spring Cleaning Made Simple

Related image

Though this really warm weather may cast doubt, it actually is still Spring and not yet Summer. It’s coming, though! Which means if you haven’t started Spring cleaning you’re running out of time until it becomes Summer cleaning. It’s an understandably daunting task which is why so many people put it off as long as possible. To help you get this looming task off your back here are some of our favorite tips, tricks, and how to’s for Spring cleaning 101!

  1. Clockwork Cleaning
    This tip will definitely help you in eating the elephant (one bite at a time… hopefully everyone is familiar with this saying). Break down tasks into timed sections. It’s overwhelming to consider everything you have to do but if you set an allotted amount of time and find the most efficient tasks to fill that time it will help you get a lot done and not end up burned out in the end! For example, only have ten minutes to fill? Try a quick dusting session, wipe down those ceiling fan blades, and polish up any doors and switch plates that have collected smudges and finger prints. Presto! Check those of your list and move on to another ten minute session or a longer session for bigger tasks.

  2. Start Where You Live
    One way to get things done is when you’re feeling encouraged and inspired. The easiest way to galvanize yourself to that kind of work is to be able to see the progress you’ve made. Take the time to start cleaning where you and your family spend the most time in the house. Clean up the kitchen or living room quickly and you’ll get to see the result of your hard work all day long while you work on the following project!

  3. Clean Routine
    If you’ve got a busy schedule and don’t have time to clean until the weekends but the messiness is getting to you in the meantime, here’s a tip, clean as you go. This may seem obvious but take it further and make it a part of your daily habits! We recommend in the morning beginning your day by making the bed and when you’ve accomplished some personal tasks empty the dishwasher or start a load of laundry. This will make it much easier for yourself in the evening to come home to work on and will help you keep on top of everything!

  4. Slow & Steady Wins The Race
    Although there’s nothing wrong with busting out all your cleaning in one to two sittings there’s also nothing wrong with doing it gradually. You know yourself better than anyone else does so clean according to your schedule! It’s much less pressure on yourself to dedicate some time over a period of time to accomplishing all your spring cleaning. It also ensures that what you clean will be really really clean compared to if you had done it more quickly to get more done at a time. If you’re spread thin and running on fumes you won’t get much done anyways so relax and take a quick break if you need to!

Maintenance Tasks That Will Save You $$$ In The Long Run

Related image

Okay, so this isn’t the sexiest topic but maintenance is so critical to well… maintaining the integrity of your property! Some things are more important than others but it can be hard to differentiate what you really need to keep on top of and what you can get away with doing once a year. When something slips through the cracks (maybe literally) year after year there are potential pitfalls lying in wait that could cost you dearly. Let us remind you to not forget about these particular maintenance tasks and hopefully you’ll get to save your hard earned money in the end!

  1. Roof and gutter maintenance
    Oh, leaves in my gutter? How cute! Fall! Then BOOM, you’ve got overflowing gutters, foundation damage, and drainage issues. Don’t indulge your sentimental side here, leaves in the gutter can cost you a lot of money in the damage they can do! It’s easy to forget to do this since you probably don’t check out your roof very much. Be sure to to check out your roof too! You can have minor cracks that you probably won’t notice if you’re not looking for them. They can allow water to slowly enter into your home and cause damage to ceilings and walls which will also rack up the bill! Be sure to spend some quality time with your roof and gutters, your wallet will thank you!

  2. Creepy Crawler Critter Maintenance
    Unless you’re really alright with raccoons as roommates you might want to listen up. You’re careful… it’s not like you leave all your doors and windows open all the time and leave out bowls of cat food everywhere (to the people who identify with everything I just said… you might have raccoons). But even not doing those things can set you up with critters if you’re not being diligent about safeguarding the rest of your house. It’s easy to disregard those venty looking things sticking just slightly off your house but that’s exactly where your friendly family of squirrels will climb up in the winter time. Place mesh over vent faces and cover up any access points leading to underneath the house. Save yourself from waking up in the middle of the night to a mouse trying to make a nest in your hair and save yourself from hiring a pest control guy!

  3. Chimney Maintenance
    I doubt that chimney cleaners look like Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins anymore but nonetheless be sure to step in time and be sure to inspect your chimney and have it cleaned regularly (how about that Mary Poppins reference, huh?)! It’ll make it easier for you to spot cracks should the ever appear! If you do happen to find cracks in the bricks of the flue or there are gaps in the mortar on the outside of the chimney between the bricks, your home could be in trouble. This sort of damage could ultimately bring the chimney down on your roof if you’re not careful! That’s why regular maintenance and inspection is so important!

Why I Love Living In Edmond

Image result for edmond ok

I first stepped foot in Edmond, OK in 2013. I arrived after driving 29 hours in my cramped ’94 Toyota Corolla to the front entrance of Oklahoma Christian University. Coming from the North West, I wasn’t sure what to expect of the people or culture of my new home but let me tell you I was not prepared for what warmly greeted me! I was caught off guard by how clean and neatly manicured the beautiful landscaping around the city was. I was caught off guard by how friendly and social everyone is- especially the drivers! My four years at school were so sweet and I felt so safe here, even walking around in the dark, enjoying the warm summer evenings! Now that I’m out of school, married, and looking for my first home- I’m beginning to view Edmond through an entirely new lens and I’m falling in love with it again for entirely different reasons! Last year, Edmond was ranked among the 50 best U.S. cities to live in and here’s why!

  1. Livability
    Edmond has retained it’s charm and inviting almost small town feel while being home to several nationally recognized and very profitable businesses. You’d think that the steady economy and the low crime rates in the area would cause home prices to sky rocket as people move to the area but it is still an affordable area to live in!
  2. Community
    I believe that the small town charm effect that Edmond tends to have is due to the incredible community involvement in the area! There’s always fun and free opportunities happening around the area to do with your family. For that reason, among others, it’s a great place to raise your children! You’ll find endless opportunities for exciting learning times and chances to grow together!
  3. Location
    Located in the heart of Oklahoma, Edmond is just minutes away from great attractions, beautiful scenery, and of course OKC! For the outdoor enthusiast, ignore the flack you might hear about Oklahoma being flat and hop in your car. You’ve got options but one of my favorite places to visit is the Wichita Mountains And Wildlife Reserve. Technically, they’re not mountains but they are sure beautiful and make for great hiking! If you’re more interested in what the city can offer you, try out the fabulous dining and entertainment in the area to start! Edmond is home to so many original and unique restaurants and businesses you can only find here!

If you’re looking to move to Edmond, which I highly recommend, let us give you a hand in transitioning! Give The RED Team a call at 405.330.2626 if you’d like to learn a little more about the area and what it offers! From there we’d love to help you find your dream home!

Your Ultimate Guide To Edmond This April!

There are so many sayings that float around this time of year. ‘March came in like a lion and out like a lamb’ or ‘April showers bring May flowers’. ‘Out with the March, in with the April!’ I’m not sure that’s quite how that saying goes but nonetheless, I’m excited to be another month deeper into Spring and closer to Summer! If I stop writing this and look out the window from my desk I can see a beautiful flowering tree covered in purple blooms. I love this time of year because most of Edmond starts to look this way too! The grass begins to green and you start to see tulips popping up all over the place! The Edmond/OKC area is great this season for many reasons, like the fun community events happening! We’ve rounded up a couple of engaging occasions you’ll definitely want to be a part of this April!
