Preparing Your Home for Summer Guests

  • Tips & How To's
  • Share

Summer is the season of all things travel, celebrations and visiting with family and friends, which likely means you'll be opening up your home to a number of guests in the coming months. In addition to preparing the guest bedrooms, living areas and bathrooms, you'll also want to ensure the air is clean and pure for the most inviting atmosphere as possible.

Use an air purifier to remove dust, irritants and other allergens in the air so your guests feel comfortable. Though seasonal allergies begin to taper off come summer, often there is still an abundance of pollen in the air. Grass, weeds and dust can also aggravate allergy symptoms, and even be bothersome to guests that do not normally suffer from allergies

The Holmes® Allergen Remover Air Purifier Tower with True HEPA Filter helps to reduce up to 99.97 percent of allergens from the air passing through the filter. First, there's a pre-filter to capture dust, pollen, pet dander and mold, and larger airborne particles. True HEPA filter technology traps particles as small as 0.3 microns, helping both you and your guests breathe more comfortably. An indicator will alert you when the filter needs to be changed, ensuring that performance is always at its best. Additionally, its quiet operation will never disrupt the tranquility and ambiance you want to offer to visitors in your home.

With humidity that often accompanies the warm summer weather, use window fans for a reliable, easy fix to beat that summertime heat in the guest bedrooms. The No. 1 benefit of window fans is that they can be used to pull in fresh, cool air from outside and also effectively exhaust stale indoor air out. Even better, with a window fan that is electronically reversible, like the Holmes® Electronically Reversible Twin Window Fan, one blade works to pull in the cooler, fresher air, while the other pushes out warmer, stale air to bring comfort for a restful night's sleep.

Another bonus for you as you host your fair share of guests this summer, this electronically reversible twin window fan uses up to 60 percent less energy. Moreover, when the desired temperature is reached it helps to save energy by automatically shutting off.

If you're someone who lives in a region with an arid climate for most of the year, both you and your guests can benefit from a humidifier working to improve your dry indoor air. The Holmes® Cool Mist Humidifier Tower with Digital Control Panel is perfect for bringing relief to dry air in the summertime. Helping to combat stuffy, dry air, this cool mist humidifier ensures comfort with refreshing, invisible moisture  to improve the air quality in your home. It pulls that dry air back into the system while working to disperse the welcomed, cool mist.

Set desired comfort levels with digital controls that are easy for you and your guests to operate. What's more, this filter is treated with an antimicrobial agent that helps to stop the growth of mildew and odor-causing bacteria on the surface of the filter. The humidity sensor allows you to keep levels in check. And the convenient FilterCheck™ Monitor indicates when its time to replace the filter.

A welcoming, clean home is also a home that smells good. Before your guests arrive, consider picking up a bouquet of fresh flowers for the kitchen as well as the guest rooms. The bright, lively hues and the pleasant, sweet smell is the perfect way to greet new arrivals. You may also want to consider picking up a collection of seasonal candles as well. Lighting candles at nighttime is a great way to enhance the ambiance.

Adding fresh flowers to the kitchen and guest bedroom is a great way to make your indoor air smell great.Adding fresh flowers to the kitchen and guest bedroom is a great way to make your indoor air smell great.
