Living in the Sacramento Valley during the spring can be burdensome on allergy sufferers. The sniffling, sneezing and the general lethargic feeling that comes with allergies can be treated by medication. Spring is when many families decide to sell their home. Imagine a buyer getting hit with an allergy attack during a showing. Make your home more pleasant for everyone, including your own family by following a few easy allergy preventive steps.
Air Filters: Choose a filter and make sure it has a small particle or HEPA filter. These filters might cost a bit more, but well worth the relief we can experience in our own castle. Keeping the humidity low and temperatures at 70 degrees will help fight mold and dust mites.
Clean Carpets: Having hardwood or laminate floors can stamp out the possibilities of insects, fleas or dust mites that are common with carpets. If replacing the carpet is too expensive, then have your carpet professionally cleaned with an extractor. Wash area rugs.
Kitchen And Bath: There’s no substitute for elbow grease. Scrub with bleach to clean mold from fixtures, tub and shower. Clean or replace moldy shower curtains and bath mats.
Most every buyer I have ever worked with wants an idea on energy bills associated with the property they intend to purchase. It’s an extra bonus when they find out the home is loaded with energy efficiency features. Shaving energy bill expenses increases the long-term value of their home.
Automated HVAC System: Programmable thermostats can save consumers plenty of money per year on energy cost. These systems can be set to reduce consumption when residents are out and create heating and cooling zones in a home. This can eliminate the necessity to heat or cool a room not in use and there by decreasing electric bills.
Tankless Water Heaters: Conserve water usage by going with a tankless water heater. It’s instant hot water when in use, which can reduce water heating cost by 35 percent annually.
Lighting: An automatic dimmer will adjust lighting based on the time of day which is acutely beneficial for exterior lighting. More home buyers are consciencely focusing on homes that can offer energy-efficient features. Dual pane windows and additional insulation are two other effective measures that catch the eye of the buyer.
