The list of household chores is never-ending. Rather than becoming intimidated by the amount of work that needs to be done, consults this handy calendar to determine the optimal time during the year to accomplish the most important items on your list.

As a new year dawns, you’re bound to have lofty plans for upcoming home improvement projects. Stressful situations can result from an overly ambitious to-do list. Spread up your projects over the course of the year instead of cramming them all in at once! Here’s a year’s worth of do-it-yourself jobs to keep the place clean, comfortable, and well-maintained, broken down by month for your convenience.

  • Repaint the Walls and Baseboards

Take a glance at your home’s baseboards once your holiday parties are over and everybody has gone home. There is a good chance that they have seen some use and could use a new coat of paint. First and foremost, clean the floorboards, which tend to collect dust and filth like a magnet. A less-than-perfect finish will be produced if the paint is allowed to adhere to dust that has been left on the ground. Consider painting the window and door trim if you’re inspired by the way newly painted baseboards alter a room.

  • Insulate Your Home to Keep It Warmer

Is your house a touch chilly in the wintertime and just a little hotter in the summertime than you’d prefer? Perhaps the insulation in your attic needs to be improved. Check your batt insulation now that winter is over, & if you need more, get it done now. Both your HVAC system and your monthly energy expenses will benefit from this project.

  • Dispose of the Stomach Organs

Clean your downspouts of all the pine boughs, twigs, twigs, as well, and other plant molecules that have gathered during the cold winter season before spring downpours overwhelm your home. Consider adding gutter guards, which are shields or polyurethane inserts that prevent dirt from accumulating in the first place while you clean the gutters.

  • Pest Control in the Summer

All the animals that are able to conceive & find their way inside your home will be as well. Infestations like termites, wasps & silverfish can be kept out of your home with a little forethought. Your home’s siding should be checked for cracks & rotting or broken slates on the roof. You should also seal around doors and windows to keep unwanted creatures out.

  • Pressure Wash the Exterior

A scum or dirt accumulation on the exterior of your home can give it a sloppy, dilapidated appearance after a cold winter as well as a rainy and windy spring. Spray washing your home’s exterior is easy in the spring when the weather is dry and sunny. When using a power washer, start at the lowest setting possible and read the tool’s instruction manual for the suggested pressure.

  • Get a New Look for Your House’s Front Door

Is the area around your front entrance looking a touch dull now that it’s been freshly washed? Consider painting the doorway trim, changing the doormat, or replacing the external illumination if your home’s curb appeal is lacking. For a more dramatic alteration, paint your front door a bright color that will spruce up the home’s visual appeal. This paint will evaporate quickly in June because of the sunny weather. Whereas the door is drying out, if you haven’t turned on your air conditioner yet, you can prop it open.

  • Enhance the Ambiance

It’s a good idea to spend some time repairing those workhouse light fittings that are utilized every day when we’re talking about glittering lights & holiday decor. When dust gathers in the light fixtures and sconces, the brightness of the light is diminished. Use a soft cloth to clean the ceiling fittings, wall sconces, & hidden lights after carefully removing the covers from each of the fixtures. Replace a few incandescent bulbs with colorful lights if you’re feeling particularly merry this holiday season.


If you’re wealthy enough to employ a mechanic for every little problem around the house, by all means, do it. Check out these foam proportioners if you want to save money and practice some self-sufficiency in the house, which addresses a million but one tiny difficulty. Let’s get moving, shall we?
