With summer drawing to a close, now is the perfect time to start thinking about cleaning your home for fall. Fall cleaning is a great way to start the season off clean and fresh and prepare your home for the upcoming winter. If you’re getting ready for a thorough house cleaning for the fall, here is a cleaning checklist to help you prepare.

Give Everything a Good Scrub

During the summer, dirt and debris from the outdoors can be tracked into your home and easily build up throughout the house. If left uncleaned, this dirt can continue to collect over the winter, decreasing the air quality and making your home an unpleasant and unhygienic space. Prevent dirt and grime from wreaking havoc in your home by conducting a wipe-down of all surfaces at the beginning of fall, including all floors, windows, and behind and underneath appliances and big furniture pieces.

Swap Out Your Storage Items

As the temperatures start to drop, you can put away your patio furniture, swimming gear, and outdoor sports equipment. Collect all of your summer apparel and put it into storage for the season, either in your attic, garage or in an nearby storage facility. Before putting these seasonal accessories away, assess each item to determine whether it’s worth holding on to for another year. Save valuable storage space by getting ride of any damaged or broken items. Once all these summer accessories are safely stored, take out your winter accessories, such as extra blankets, winter sports apparel, and coats, hats, and boots to get ready for the new season.
