Get Your Home Back-to-School Ready

Gear Up for the School Year

The days of backpacks, drop-offs, and packing school lunches are back! Whether your child is starting school for the first time or heading into middle school, the transition back to school is a chaotic and busy time. While life speeds back up, your home’s well-being takes a backseat.

This year, we’re encouraging you to take care of your home at the start of the school year before the extracurriculars take over. Read on for our list of back-to-school tasks around your home.

Cleaning and Organizing

Nothing is worse than scrambling around the night before the first day, searching for lunch boxes, tupperware, and running shoes. Take the time in the weeks ahead to clean out your cabinets, find all the lids and matching containers, and get your things in place. Even if they won’t always stay this in order, it will make the first few weeks a lot easier.

Have the kids go through their closets, donating what they don’t need or what doesn’t fit any more. This will help you know if they need new shoes before the morning of!

Scheduling Repairs and Maintenance

The morning bathroom routine is about to become more packed than ever. If the hot water runs out, or the toilet won’t flush, it can ruin the whole day! Take the time to schedule any plumbing repairs you might need now, before the hectic mornings arrive.

If you haven’t had your HVAC serviced for some time, be sure to give AWS Plumbing, Heating & Cooling a call! We’ll get your heating and cooling system in tip-top shape for the rest of the school year!
