This is the time of year when everyone starts preparing for the holiday season. With Christmas still more than a month away and Thanksgiving only a week away, there is a lot you need to consider to prepare your home for the holiday visitors that will be descending on you soon! The professionals at Window Nation in Virginia, Maryland, D.C. and Ohio would like to offer you some helpful tips to prepare your home for the coming holiday season and the guests that will be joining you for your holiday festivities.

Make sure that your home is prepared for visitors that may arrive in the evening hours. It gets dark very early this time of year, so making sure that all the exterior lights around your home are working is a very good idea to help keep visitors safe. If you have a walkway into your home that has any steps or rocks, have lights installed around the pathway to make sure your visitors don’t trip while coming into your home.

Prepare your living area by cleaning up clutter and dusting, making sure to dust in the high corners of rooms to remove any cobwebs that have appeared. You should also schedule a professional carpet cleaning this time of year to make sure your carpet is looking clean and fresh for when your visitors arrive.

Have your windows professionally cleaned as well. This is something you should have done once a year- windows both inside and out should have a good clean.

Make sure that your guest bedrooms are fully stocked with whatever your guests may need. A wall mirror, fresh towels and fresh bed linens are all things that should be present in your guest bedroom.

Once your home is prepared for the holidays, you can start thinking about the more important things like all the gift buying you still need to do and then the all-important holiday meal planning!

August is the month when business is slower for most window companies because families and homeowners are distracted with back to school shopping, moving kids into college dorms, andtaking the last vacation of the summer. This means that window companies offer bigger discounts for those who are going forward with window replacements.

And when we say August, we mean right now, because despite the dip in window replacements this month, September and October prove to be just the opposite. These are the busiest two months of the year and could end up costing you more money. It could also take window companies longer to schedule in your service then.
