Autumn Home and Carpet Cleaning Tips
Autumn is a good time to deep clean your house and get ready for winter. You`ll want a clean, clutter free space for winter, since you`ll spend more time indoors. You`ll also get to take advantage of the comfortable fall weather while you work. If you create an action plan now, you can get the most out of your fall cleaning experience in the least amount of time.
Home Exterior Checklist
Check out your backyard first. You`ll want to clean all your outdoor furniture and outside children`s toys so the items are ready for storage for the winter. Any water items you have, such as garden hoses, should be drained and allowed to dry so they don`t freeze during the colder months.
Gutters and downspouts need to be cleaned of all debris before winter strikes. If you have any clogs, your gutters may freeze and damage your home`s exteriors. Contact a professional if you`re unable to clean the gutters yourself. If you have a working chimney you plan to use for the winter, have the chimney inspected and cleaned.
Clean and cover or protect other items that must stay outside for winter, such as an air conditioning unit. By cleaning and covering now, you may avoid damage from any drastic changes in weather. Follow any storage or winterizing instructions given by the manufacturer in your item`s manual.
Inside Your Home Cleaning and Carpet Cleaning Hints
Start with the most public rooms in your home, such as the bathroom and living room. Rooms with more traffic tend to need deeper cleaning and will take longer than less public rooms, such as your bedroom.
Vacuum all your furniture and move pieces around so you can vacuum underneath. If you`re planning on doing a lot of cooking or baking during the holidays, the fall is a great time to organize and clean your kitchen so you have more space. This is a perfect time to have the best carpet cleaning in el dorado hills come out and freshen up your home and improve your indoor air quality (AIQ)…hint…hint.
If you have a dishwasher in your kitchen, the fall is a good time to give it a deep clean. One common cleaning method is the placement of a bowl with two cups of white vinegar in the bottom rack. Once you place the bowl in the rack, you run the wash and rinse cycles. Before you use any cleaning method on your dishwasher, check the manufacturer`s cleaning directions and warnings.
Your washing machine could probably use a clean to help remove deposits from soap. Add a quart of white vinegar to hot water and run a set of empty wash, rinse and spin cycles. If you have a dryer, check the outside exhaust line for lint blockage and clean if needed.
Vacuum your window treatments and clean your window glass and sills inside and outside. Always work from the top to the bottom when you`re cleaning. You can clean whatever lands on the floor while you are carpet cleaning, beating your rugs or mopping your floors. Follow the tile and grout cleaning instructions from the manufacturer for the type of tile you have so you don`t cause any damage. Be careful of what others in your home, including any cleaning services that you may use. It is probably a good idea to only keep cleaning products that are designed and safe for natural ston so some well meaning helper (yeah right) will not accidentally degrade your sealer.
