Fall Cleaning: How to Prepare for Winter
Sep 12, 2017
Fall is the season when nature itself prepares to accommodate the chilly winter. During fall, deciduous trees surrender their leaves to the ground and temperatures drop. This is an opportunity to take advantage of the lower temperatures to thoroughly clean your house and make sure everything is in tip-top shape before the winter. Here are some fall cleaning tips that will guarantee your family a cleaner and more comfortable winter.
Clean out the gutters
The first fall cleaning tip is to muck out the gutters. During Autumn, falling leaves can make a mess of your lawn and clog up your drains. Mucky gutters also pose a health risk, as microbes and mold find it a habitable breeding ground. Paying attention to your gutters is an excellent way to investigate whether they need repair or whether you are in need of mold remediation services.
Vacuum soft furnishings
Shampooing your carpets and having your upholstery professionally cleaned is a great way to freshen fabric and revitalize the air in your home.
Clean the windows
Fall is the best time to clean your windows and look for any cracks that may need to be repaired before cold weather sets in.
Deep clean the kitchen
Your kitchen is also a place that may need restoration services in case there was previously water, smoke or fire damage. Restoration services will have you ready for the holidays with a clean and functional kitchen.
