We’re so used to the idea of spring cleaning, even though we spend a lot more time outside when spring comes around. But, we spend more time indoors during the autumn and winter season.
Think Autumn Cleaning Instead of Spring Cleaning
Doesn’t it make sense to make sure we’ve thoroughly cleaned the inside of our homes when we plan to be mostly indoors? After all, we have to deal with cold and flu seasons keeping us down, and we don’t want to add allergies acting up from dust to the mix. And, if you’re severely allergic to dust, you may even want to have someone else clean for you.
So, first things first. Improve the air quality of the inside of your home during the autumn and winter season by doing a clean sweep from top to bottom. Just as with spring cleaning, you’ll want to:
- Get rid of clutter. Minimize unwanted items by getting rid of clutter, working one room at a time. Donate or sell items you don’t want to keep.
- Clean hard-to-reach areas. Clean under your bed, behind and under big pieces of furniture, vacuum cushions, wipe light fixtures and ceiling fans, and wipe down the walls and skirtings.
- Clean your windows to a sparkling shine. Once the rainy season starts, this will become more difficult.
- Dry clean the carpets. Summertime tends to bring in more dirt on the carpets from venturing outside more frequently. Once summer’s over, it’s a good idea to give them a good cleaning with a professional dry clean.
- Wash linens, i.e. pillows, duvets, blankets, etc. You probably stored away some of your heavier linens during summer. Time to bring them out and wash your bedding items before putting them on the beds.
- Do a good regular cleaning on a regular basis. Dust furniture, mop floors, clean bathrooms, etc.
