Fall home cleaning checklist:
Vacuum upholstered furniture
Opened windows during the summer come with dust and dirt. While dust on tables and countertops is visible, sometimes it’s not as easy to tell on upholstered furniture. Fall is a great time to vacuum and clean furniture and cushions.
Clean walls, ceilings, and carpet
Dust, wash, rinse, and dry walls and floorboards. Dust ceilings, light fixtures, and ceiling fan blades. Switch your ceiling fans to the clockwise setting to circulate warm air this winter. After dusting all of the surfaces above the floors, it’s a great time to clean floors, rugs, and carpets.
Windows, drapes, and blinds need dusting and washing this fall. Check the cleaning instructions on drapes, as some are machine washable while others are dry clean only. Replace screens with storm doors to keep the heat inside.
Check detectors and filters
Check smoke and carbon monoxide detectors for function. Replace batteries, if needed, and review fire safety with your family members. Check the filters in your furnace regularly, and replace every 3 months.
The home cleaning to-do list seems overwhelming this time of year. Each season brings specific home cleaning recommendations. In the fall, it’s all about dusting and washing surfaces in anticipation of winter. Working ahead by starting in early fall is a great way to make the holiday season brighter.
