Home Cleaning Projects for Autumn
5 Fall Cleaning Projects Your Home Needs
The weather has changed, and it is no longer time for pool parties and barbeques. Your patio furniture probably needs to be stowed, your wardrobe needs a change, and your home probably needs some help toward winter.
Fall is like spring in that it is a transitional season. As we start moving closer to the coldest months of the year, there’s a lot of preparation work that should be done, including home cleaning. Here are 5 fall cleaning projects for your home.
Your grass can be damaged if all the leaves that fall to the ground this season are not removed. Although your lawn will spend most of its time covered in snow during winter, you still want it to look good throughout the fall and also when spring comes. Don’t you? Take time to trim your trees and flower beds and also to clear those fallen leaves and any other debris.
Air Duct Cleaning
Dirty ducts can pollute the air you breathe and also raise your energy bill. To ensure your furnace runs smoothly, make sure you clean your ducts at least once a year, so you can stay cozy and warm throughout the harsh months ahead.
Clogged gutters plus rain, sleet, hail, and snow is a horrible combination. To avoid costly problems with your gutters and your home foundation, you must clean out your gutters. That will bring peace of mind and save you money.
Lots of dust accumulates in your carpets during the year but especially over the summer. Dusty carpets don’t only affect your home’s curb appeal; they also stain your carpets and give you and your family allergies. Since you won’t be keeping your windows open to air out the house during the coming months, this is the time to clean your carpets, so you can breathe clean air and make your home look good.
Dusty windows impair your ability to enjoy the beauty of the fall and winter, but beyond that, they affect the way your home looks and can result in glass that is damaged. Why? Well, there are tiny particles that adhere to your windows and snow can easily drag down those particles resulting in small scratches to your windows. Take time to get your windows cleaned or call the pros to help you do it.
