Prepare Your Home for Colder Days
Let’s face it, cleaning up is not everyone’s favorite activity. Although it might not look important as a spring cleaning, fall cleaning is a great way to prepare your home for the winter and the upcoming holiday season.
Ultimate fall cleaning
Fall is the perfect time to clean up your home. As the temperature goes down, you won’t be able to open the windows as frequently as you did during the summer. It means that all the dirt, dust, and dust mites will stay in your home until the spring unless you clean it up. Deep cleans all the rooms of your home – kitchen, bedroom, and living room. Store the garden furniture and clean the gutters, double check the insulation.
Empty your closets
Many people forget to clean the closet before the winter. Here is how you should do it. Pack the summer clothes in boxes, and bring out the winter outfits. Empty your closet and pile everything up. Decide what pieces you are going to keep and what you are going to donate. That way, you will create an extra closet space to stash some of the holiday gifts you have prepared for your family.
Inspect your HVAC
Last but not least, make sure that your HVAC system works properly. Change the filters, inspect the outside HVAC unit and ducts, and check if there are some leaks or wear and tear.
