Moving can require a lot of mental and physical strength. Before posting any photos of your home, be sure to prep your home with these quick fixes prior to your home’s photo shoot.
Save your energy for moving boxes and not for power washing or scrubbing. Check out how Wet & Forget products can also help you get your home ready to be listed on the market.
How can I improve my home’s curb appeal?
Make sure your home leaves a great first impression for when potential home buyers pull up to your home. Here are some ideas to spruce up your home’s curb appeal.
Since the yard is a large area of the home, make sure it stays healthy and green. Be sure to water and mow your grass weekly. Eliminate any common weeds when visible.
If you do happen to live in an area where maintaining a green lawn is difficult, consider alternatives. Alternatives include artificial turf or adding a rock garden as they are much easier to maintain in drier climates.
Flowers & shrubbery-
Add flowers to add bursts of color to your home. Whether it’s flowerpots or hangers, these small details can help to sell a home. Be sure to take care of these flowers and shrubbery so potential buyers are not greeted with wilting flowers and untrimmed shrubs.
Water and fertile flowers routinely. Prune shrubbery as dead or diseased stems can be unappealing and attract insects.
Add outdoor furniture and textiles to create a cozy and inviting atmosphere. Having furniture on a porch will help buyers envision how that space can be utilized. Throw some outdoor pillows on top to bring the indoors outside.
Another way to create a homey environment is a doormat. Buy a simple yet inviting doormat to welcome the potential buyer to their new home.
Make your home stand out from the rest in the neighborhood by painting or replacing your front door. Whether it’s a new coat of paint or a new door, make sure it stands out.
The house with the red door is going to stand out a lot more than a house with a neutral-colored door. Aside from the great landscaping, make your home a memorable one with a beautiful, front door.
When people say it’s the small things in life, it really is about the small things in life. So, be sure to pay close attention to your home’s hardware. Hardware on a home can truly help tie everything together.
Add contrasting hardware to make the small details pop- like a black doorknob on a white door. If replacing hardware is not on your agenda, be sure to polish up your existing hardware to make them look as new as can be.
How do I make my home look more photogenic?
Making your home ready to list can be stressful, and people often overlook the little details such as cleaning up your walkway or siding. If you plan on uploading photos of your home online, make sure the buyers are focusing on the highlights of your home and not the green and black stains on the outside of your home.
Aside from the various curb appeal projects you can do, don’t forget about your house as a whole. Be sure that the roof and siding are clean and updated as well.
If there is visible moss, mold, or algae lingering, consider using the Wet & Forget Xtreme Reach™ Hose End to clear the organic growth up for you. Attach to your garden and turn the black dial on the bottle to “ON” and spray down the affected surfaces.
For more precise applications around your home affected by green or black stains, use the Wet & Forget Concentrate. This is perfect for covering walkways, retaining walls, decorative yard features, and outdoor furniture.
If moss, mold, or algae is visible on the front walkway, be sure to get them cleaned up. Although flowers and shrubs may help the cosmetics of your home, make the sure foundation of your home is just as pretty (and stain-free).
Get the inside of your home looking as nice and clean as the outside. To limit the opportunity for mold and mildew growth, reduce the humidity levels inside your home. Invest in a dehumidifier to reduce moisture levels in the basement of your home.
Another way is to turn the bathroom vent fan on when you’re showering. This helps to draw out the moisture and reduce the chances of the humidity from lingering too long.
If mold and mildew appear, eliminate them using Wet & Forget Indoor Disinfectant Cleaner.
To clean up any soap scum, and body oil buildup, and mold and mildew stains use the Wet & Forget Weekly Shower cleaner weekly to keep your shower shining. It will clean up stubborn soap scum buildup without any scrubbing, so it was like it was never even there!
Be sure to get your tub and shower cleaned up before posting any photos.
If your basement walls are speckled with mold and mildew growth, spray the Wet & Forget Indoor Disinfectant Cleaner on the affected area and allow the surface to air dry or wipe with a clean cloth or sponge 10 minutes after treatment. This product not only cleans up mold and mildew and inhibits the regrowth it also deodorizes and disinfects.
With your quick application of Wet & Forget Indoor, you’re also destroying those musty mold odors at the source no just masking them. So, leave the rest of your cleaning products behind because this is the only one you’ll want to get your basement ready for showings.
At Wet & Forget, we understand how stressful moving can be. So, let Wet & Forget lend a hand in making your big transition stress and hassle-free. Go back to packing your boxes and let Wet & Forget do the cleaning for you.
