As we start to see hints of cooler fall weather, it is the perfect time to clean and organize your home. The intense heat of the summer is disappearing, and you will feel more motivated to complete some fall cleaning. Here are some tips to make the most of your fall cleaning and prepare your home for cooler weather.
- Clean and Store Your Outdoor Furniture. It is a good idea to clean your outdoor furniture before the weather cools down. If there are any messes or stains on your furniture, you want to remove them before your furniture sits for months and the stains become permanent. After cleaning, store or cover your furniture to protect it from rust and damage.
- Clean Ceiling Fans. If your fans have been running all summer, they have probably collected a lot of dust. This is the perfect time to wipe down fan blades and light fixtures.
- Flip Your Mattress. To keep your mattress from sagging or having indentations, you should flip your mattress twice a year. To help you remember, flip your mattress every year during spring cleaning and fall cleaning. While flipping your mattress, you can also use a vacuum to suck up any dust out of your mattress.
- Clean Out Your Pantry. Since the holidays are just around the corner, now is the time to prepare your pantry for all your holiday cooking traditions by cleaning and organizing the space. Empty and wipe down each shelf. Remove any expired food and organize your pantry by meals or food type.
