Last night I watched the season premiere of my favorite TV show.\u00a0 I was surprised at the number of holiday-themed commercials that I had to wade thru while watching it.\u00a0 After all, it\u2019s only September!\u00a0 Annoying?\u00a0 Yes, but it did make me think about the projects that I\u2019d like to complete around the house before the holiday season starts. \u00a0I don\u2019t know about you, but there\u2019s nothing better than the aroma of pumpkin spice wafting in the air, delicious turkey and mashed potatoes in my belly, and sugar plum fairies dancing in my head.\u00a0 I want to enjoy every minute of this upcoming season, don\u2019t you?Take it from the Coop, you could drive yourself crazy thinking about all the projects you\u2019d like to accomplish before the holiday season.\u00a0 Do yourself a favor and start your preparations early by prioritizing a few special projects that are most important to you and then completing them in plenty of time to enjoy the festivities. To help you begin, I\u2019ve compiled my own To-Do List \u2013 perhaps this will give you motivation to get started on yours.Fix the heating and cooling issue in my guest room. Like many people, my home office doubles as a guest room.\u00a0 It is located above the garage and is either too cold in the winter or too hot in the summer.\u00a0 I\u2019ll make an appointment with Matt, our Comfort Consultant here at Cooper Mechanical, to get his opinion on how to fix this problem. My out-of-town guests will sleep far more comfortably in a cozy room during their stay, and I\u2019ll find a remedy for my own discomfort once and for all.Unclog the shower drain. Recently, my daughter complained that the shower drains too slowly in our 2nd floor bathroom.\u00a0 (With her long hair, I\u2019m not surprised the shower drain is clogged!)\u00a0 Since I\u2019m a master plumber that should be a pretty simple task. \u00a0While I\u2019m at it, I\u2019ll take a close look at my other plumbing fixtures and piping to see whether there\u2019s any other plumbing repair that I should address before it becomes a problem.Replace the kitchen faucet. This past summer, we replaced our old refrigerator and dishwasher with brand new high efficiency equipment that look very sleek. My wife and I will continue the remodeling process by visiting Cooper Mechanical\u2019s Plumbing Showroom and selecting an updated, brushed stainless faucet.Paint the foyer. My foyer needs a fresh coat of paint and so does my hallway. I\u2019m a lousy painter so I need to call a professional and get on his schedule pronto.Clean the carpet The carpets throughout my house are beginning to look a little dinghy.\u00a0 I\u2019m going to rent a carpet cleaner from my local supermarket and tackle that job myself. So, those are my top 5.
