10 Tips and Tricks for Cleaning Your Home This Fall
Below are 10 additional tips and tricks for your fall house cleaning plan.
1. Start with a Decluttering Blitz
Before beginning your fall cleaning, clear your floors and surfaces. We often accumulate more items than we realize. While many of these items are kept for a reason, start by identifying and removing those you no longer need. Unwanted items can be sold at a garage sale or stored away. For items you wish to keep, simply move them aside to facilitate easier cleaning.
2. Clean Your Gutters
Your home's gutters transport water away from your roof and away from your home, preventing water damage to your roof and your home. However, clogged gutters can lead to standing water on your roof, which may necessitate premature roof replacement. To avoid this, ensure your gutters are clean, which you can do manually or with the assistance of professions.
3. Freshen Up Upholstery
With time, upholstery on couches and chairs can discolor from natural oils, pet stains, and food spills. Using a Tineco CARPET ONE SPOT allows for efficient cleaning of your upholstered items.
4. Dust and Vacuum Efficiently
Homes inevitably accumulate dust and debris. Utilize your Tineco vacuum for quick and easy cleaning. With Tineco’s PURE ONE STATION's self-cleaning feature, you can save time during the process.
5. Deep Clean Carpets and Rugs
Carpets and rugs tend to trap dust and debris within their fibers, making cleaning challenging. With the right tools, such as a Tineco carpet cleaner, you can effectively remove dirt and maintain clean rugs and carpets.
6. Revive Your Oven
Expect to use your oven frequently in the fall, especially during the holidays and on chilly evenings. Increased usage necessitates more frequent cleaning. Utilize a degreaser and a coarse scrubber for effective cleaning. Ensure you deep clean it in preparation for safe usage throughout the holiday season.
7. Don't Ignore the Windows
Ensure your windows are clean to enjoy clear views of your yard and greet guests with a neat appearance. Remove fingerprints and diligently clean to prevent the buildup of dust and dirt.
8. Test and Replace Batteries
As the weather cools down, it's crucial to inspect and, if necessary, replace batteries in your home. Regularly check the batteries in your fire and smoke detectors, particularly in the fall and winter when the risk of house fires increases. Also, ensure the batteries in other safety equipment, like flashlights and generators, are functional. Keep extra batteries on hand just in case.
9. Freshen Up the Mattress
Your mattress absorbs your sweat and other natural oils every day. Clean it a couple of times a year, including fall, to keep it fresh.
10. Organize Winter Gear
You need to put away your summer goals and swap them out with your winter clothes. As the crisp autumn air gradually transitions into the biting cold of winter, it’s time to reorganize and prepare your wardrobe for the upcoming season. Begin by meticulously storing away your lightweight summer garments, ensuring they are clean and neatly folded or hung to preserve their quality for the next year. Then, reintroduce your collection of winter clothes and gear into your closet.
