Getting Your Home Ready For Guests

With 5-star ratings and fully insured services, our premium home inspections will ensure that your home is safe and secure for all of your visitors.

No matter how many people are coming over or what the occasion is, it’s important to take the time to make sure that your property is up to standard. To help you get started, ORF Home Inspections has put together this guide for getting your home ready for guests!

Check Your Home Safety Features

Before any visitors come over, it’s essential to check all of the safety features in your home. This includes smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, and fire extinguishers. All of these systems should be tested regularly, and any expired batteries should be replaced with fresh ones. You should also check that all windows and doors are properly locked and secure when not in use.

Clean and Organize

Now that the safety features are taken care of, it’s time to get cleaning and organizing! Make sure that all surfaces are wiped down and dust free, carpets vacuumed, and floors mopped. Don’t forget about those hard-to-reach places like ceiling fans and light fixtures—a little bit of extra effort can go a long way in making a room look presentable. Additionally, take some time to organize closets and drawers so that they look neat and tidy.

Set the Mood

Once everything is clean and organized, it’s time to set the mood! Consider adding some fresh flowers or plants around the house for a splash of color. Soft lighting can also do wonders for creating a relaxing atmosphere—try swapping out harsh overhead lighting for softer lamps or candles. Music can also be used to create an inviting atmosphere—think light jazz or classical music instead of loud pop songs.

Essential Supplies

Finally, make sure you have all the essential supplies on hand for when your guests arrive. This includes:

  • Extra towels and blankets
  • Snacks and refreshments
  • Toiletries such as soap, shampoo, toothpaste etc.
  • First aid kit

Having these items ready before your guests arrive will make their stay more comfortable!

At ORF Home Inspections we know how important it is to have a safe and pleasant environment for your guests. That’s why we offer comprehensive home inspection services so you can rest assured knowing that everything is up to code before anyone comes over.
