You’ve heard of spring cleaning, but fall cleaning can get your home ready for changing seasons. Keep reading to learn more about getting your home in tip top shape!
Appliances and Pantry
Fall is a good time to deep clean all of your appliances. Scrub the stuck-on food from your microwave, oven and oven racks. Remove everything from your fridge and wipe down the shelves and bins. Check for expired condiments and organize your fridge as you place everything back inside. Clean everything off your kitchen counters–even small appliances like toasters–and wipe down the counters.
Next, it’s time to take a look at your pantry. First, remove everything from your pantry so that you can wipe down the shelves. Check expiration dates and reorganize as you put items back in your pantry.
Before the weather turns, make sure you clean your windows inside and out. If the weather is colder where you live, you’ll spend more time inside over the winter, and you want your windows sparkling clean. For details on how to clean your windows, click here.
The change in seasons is also a good time to go through your house room by room to declutter. Less stuff can provide more peace at home because there’s less mess. You can go through kids’ rooms to get rid of toys that are no longer used, clean out your closets for clothing and shoes that are no longer worn, and comb through other rooms for items you can donate.
Fall is also a good time to do some deep cleaning, such as:
- Dusting ceiling fans
- Having carpets professionally cleaned
- Wiping down vent covers and checking your air ducts for dust buildup (air ducts can be professionally cleaned typically every 3 to 5 years)
- Cleaning the baseboards
Refresh your bedroom to get ready for the changing seasons. Wash your summer bedding (blankets, sheets, comforter) and decorative pillows so you can store them for next summer.
