There is a certain something in the weather that tells us that although it’s officially summer, fall it’s on its way. The change of light intensity and color, a gentle drop in temperature, the days getting shorter and even your choice in clothes are all indicators that a new season is about to start and that it’s time to invest some time on fall cleaning.
Fall is a great season to clean and organize everything in your house, as also during the summer we tend to accumulate things. Fall is also a great season to de-clutter or store all the summer sports gear and toys you had lying around in the house and get your house ready to enjoy all the good things that autumn brings.
Here are 4 great cleaning tips that will help you prepare your house for autumn:
1. Clean your carpets
Carpets get dirty all year round, however, during summer, your carpet is more prone to spills, dirt and accidents because there is more traffic around the house and everyone is more active during warmer days. This is one of the main reasons why cleaning your carpets at the end of summer is a good idea.
Carpet cleaning should be done by professionals to ensure the the problem areas of your carpet are handled with care. Hire professional carpet cleaning services instead of trying to clean it yourself as it will keep your carpets clean for longer and extend their lifespan.
2. Inspect your kitchen cabinets
Each season we stock up the kitchen with different types of food that we don’t normally consume before the expiration date, so to prepare your kitchen for autumn, inspect the cabinets and toss anything that is expired. This will give you more space to store good food and will also facilitate your general house cleaning.
3. Clean all bedding
Wash, vacuum and clean all bedding including mattresses, mattress pads, blankets, pillows and throws. This will guarantee that your beds are clean and free of dust for the season. Keep in mind that cleaning your bed covers at least once a week is the best you can do to alleviate or prevent seasonal allergies.
4. Clean from top to bottom
Hire professional maids to perform a top-to-bottom detailed housecleaning – this will minimize dirt and dust even from the most inaccessible corners of your home and will also keep it clean for longer. If you carry out a deep cleaning at the beginning of each season it will be easier to clean throughout the season.
