A runny nose, throbbing headache, and the feeling of freezing all the time regardless how many jumpers you are wearing. You know the feeling: Catching a cold is not the worst thing that could happen to you but certainly drains your energy. Then you have days of feeling shiverish, and of dragging your feet around the house while clutching a used tissue in your hand. Your nose is red and painful; your eyes are blood-injected, your head feels like it’s made out of cotton. Colds are a nasty thing. They are rarely serious, but they leave you feeling weak, disorganized and tired. Besides, it takes over all your care duties, whether they are beauty routines, fitness program, or simply washing your hair. All you want to do when you’ve caught a cold is lie down in bed until you feel finally better. And in a strange way, your house might be suffering from the same thing in winter: Leakage, cold temperature, congested room, and lack of attention. Your house has a cold too!
Has Your House A Runny Nose?
You might be wondering what a runny nose is for a house. There are two ways of looking at it. Old window structure and poor insulation can leak cold air inside the house and let the warm air go out. This is one type of runny noses. The other one is a more literary approach. It’s about running liquid, and especially keeping it running even in the coldest temperatures. Indeed, it’s important to keep your water and other liquid flowing with a pipe heating cable system in extreme climates. Freezing temperatures can not only damage your pipes but also require expensive repairs to maintain your home equipment. So do as you would do to avoid a runny nose yourself: Keep it warm!
Don’t Let It Get Too Stuffy
There’s nothing worst than feeling congested. Your nose is full; your head is about to explode from the lack of fresh air circulation. Surprisingly, you can reproduce the feeling of lack of breathing air by letting your windows shut all winter. Renewing the air inside your home is essential to keep every room feeling clean and welcoming. It may be cold outside, but you should still open the window from time to time. This will reduce the condensation in the room and help you remove the stuffy sensation of dry air in the house.
Don’t Let It Get Go For Too Long Without Attention
It’s easy to pile things in a corner during the colder months with the excuse that you will take care of it later, just as you do when you have a cold. You’ll do it later when you feel better. Don’t let your house get too dirty or messy because it’s too cold to clean or to care. Dust creates the ideal terrain for mold and other bacterial growth. So don’t let it stand for too long unattended. Papers piling up, dirty laundry taking over the room, dusty TV screen, dirty windows, etc. There is no valid excuse not to keep a clean house, even if it’s gray and cold outside.
