Selling your home?
When you decide to move and sell your home you need to know what a buyer wants. First off, ask yourself what you would want when you go to buy? Keep that in mind. Try to fix and minimize any wear that is clearly visible. This will make the buyer feel as if they are buying something "new." Be sure to keep your home maintained and cared for. No one wants to buy a home that the previous owners didn't take care of. One of the most difficult things we all have to take care of is making sure the house is presentable and doesn't appear to be cluttered. Of course, keep the home clean, smelling fresh and most importantly present it as a place that potential buyers would be proud to call home.

Holiday Safety Tips
We all know how distracting things can get around the holidays. Especially with family and friends over. However there are some tips to keep in mind that will help keep the holidays safe for everyone. Listed below are some great kitchen tips to remember as you prepare this year.
-Stay in the kitchen when you are frying,boiling and grilling food. Remember to turn the stove off, even if you leave the room for just a short time.
-Never use a wet oven mitt, this prevents scald danger that can occur if the moisture from the mitt is heated.
-Explain to children to stay at least 3 feet away from the stove and areas where food and drinks are being prepared.
-Keep anything that can catch fire away from stove tops. Some examples are: potholders, curtains, and towels.
-Always keep a lid and mitt nearby while cooking. Small grease fires can start and the quickest way to put them out is by covering the pan up and turner the burner off.
-Make sure there is a working smoke alarm in the kitchen.
Have a safe holiday from SERVPRO of NW Bakersfield!
