The holiday season is a busy time of year, often involving visits from the in-laws and merry evenings with friends. For this reason, before the holiday season is in full swing, homeowners need to prepare their kitchens and bathrooms for potential guests and extra use.
Kingston Brass provides all the upgraded kitchen and bathroom fixtures a homeowner could need. With a vast selection of quality products, there is something for any taste preference or budgetary need.
For the homeowner looking to prepare for the holiday season, the following kitchen and bathroom maintenance tips will help ensure the home is ready for cozy dinners and comfortable stays.
Start with a Deep Clean
Before any other work can begin, it is important to deep clean the kitchen and all bathrooms in the home. While cleaning these spaces is likely part of any homeowner’s routine, a deep clean can help prevent the early deterioration of fixtures and flooring.
For the kitchen, this might involve pulling out the fridge and stove to clean behind these areas where food is often trapped.
For bathrooms, a deep clean should involve scrubbing down bathtubs, showers, and toilets. Additionally, deep cleaning both rooms should involve a thorough disinfecting of the space.

Tackle Any Clogged Drains
Over time, bathtubs, showers, and sinks can develop clogged drains. Often, this begins with a drain that is slower to empty than before. Before having company over, it is important to clean any clogged or slow draining sinks or tubs.
Removing drain covers can help the process, allowing a pipe cleaner to be inserted into the drain, pulling out any tough clogs. For clogs that can’t be removed through simple DIY methods, scheduling a plumber before the holiday rush is key.
Tighten Up the Nuts and Bolts
Another quick but essential maintenance task is to walk through the kitchen and any bathrooms looking for loose nuts and bolts. Over time, the screws and bolts holding fixtures together can begin to loosen. A quick tightening of these connections can help prevent leaks.
Consider Replacement Fixtures
Finally, before the holiday season, it might be worth considering replacing older fixtures in the kitchen and bathroom. Purchasing a new faucet can go a long way in livening up a space, and replacing an old yellowing bathtub can help create a more inviting home.
