More Than Makeovers – Getting the Most Out of Your Renovation Project

I think the biggest renovation project we have coming up (and when I say coming up, I mean over the next few years!) is our floors.

When we purchased this house, the seller agreed to have new carpet installed upon his departure. Carpet, you say? With all the fabulous hard flooring options these days? Well, yes, carpet, because, at the time, we had two babies who were becoming VERY mobile, and we didn’t want them learning to walk and having nowhere to fall but on very hard wood and tile floors. We thought carpet was really the best option at the time. That was probably the right decision THEN…but nevertheless, within the next few years we’ll be installing wood floors throughout!

Have Your HVAC System Serviced

With the summer comes hot and hazy days. If you have a central air conditioning system, now is the time to have it serviced. You don’t want to wait until the temperatures are high to find out that your system isn’t working properly. Checking hoses and fans, as well as cleaning vents and hoses, is crucial to ensuring your air conditioner is as efficient as possible when you need it most.

Call the Exterminator

Insects and pests tend to go into hiding when the weather is cold and unpredictable. The warm weather, however, will draw them back out. It’s not uncommon for homeowners to spot ants, spiders, mice, or cockroaches in the summer. To prevent an infestation, you’ll need to hire local pest control services. Companies like Moxie Pest Control, an exterminator Tucson residents love, offers safe methods for getting rid of and preventing the common household pest from entering your house.
