After the long, lazy, and often exciting summer days, it’s time to create your annual Fall house cleaning checklist., it’s time to begin your annual Fall house cleaning checklist. Besides the benefits of getting rid of dust or finishing chores that have been piling up, you can help keep your family healthier as we enter the cold and flu season.

What to add to your Fall House Cleaning Checklist

Clean and Store Your Patio Furniture

Use warm soapy water and wipe down each outdoor furniture piece. Once that’s complete, wipe everything down with a dry towel to ensure everything is in tip-top shape next summer. If you have garage space or an outdoor shed, bring in the furniture so they don’t get ruined. If you don’t have a space to store them over winter, don’t worry. Go to your local store or even online and order some weatherproof covers to help prevent rust or decay.

Wash Your Windows

Summer is often a busy time for families, so it might have been a while since you last cleaned your windows. Take this time to clean both sides of the window, and you’ll feel much better. Windex and a microfiber cloth will help brighten your windows during those long winter days. Use a microfiber cloth, or you risk leaving particles on your clean windows. If you notice the outside of your window is extra dirty, spray it with a hose before using Windex.

Fire safety and deep cleaning on your Fall House Cleaning Checklist.

Sweep Your Chimney and Fireplace

Clean and sweep your Chimney and Fireplace yearly to help protect your home from accidental fires. We recommend having a professional clean the chimney portion so there’s less chance of you getting injured. The area that you can focus on is the inside of your fireplace. You’ll want to start by removing any debris from the firebox.

Take a fireplace shovel, and scoop out any ash and firewood pieces. Put the ashes into a trash can, and then take a vacuum to remove any remaining dust. Keep vacuuming until there is no debris or ashes left inside your fireplace.

Deep Clean the rooms inside your home.

Summer is relaxing, so cleaning is often on the back burner. We might do the bare minimum to help remove visible grime, but we haven’t taken the time to clean the house seriously. Now is the time for deep cleaning. You will enjoy numerous benefits when you deep clean your home, such as creating a hygienic, disinfected, healthy environment for your family and guests.

Overall, dust, vacuum, sweep, and disinfect every inch inside your home. Including under furniture, rather than just the spaces you can see with your eyes. It might feel overwhelming initially, but you’ll be glad you did it once you finish.
