Spring cleaning is an age-old tradition dating all the way back to 1446 B.C. In a similar vein as its Jewish originators who cleansed their living space for Passover, today’s society uses this time to refresh their homes in celebration of the warm seasons.
Unfortunately, dirt and grime are not picky as to which season they participate in. Considering that dust and germs replicate by the minute, it shouldn’t be acceptable to give your home a deep clean only once a year.
Here are the top three reasons that fall cleaning is just as important – if not more so – than its spring counterpart.
Warm weather is notorious for fostering a wide range of allergens and irritants that could endanger the health of those who come in contact with them. While many of these spores become trapped within your home’s air filter, contaminants can still reach the open air of your living space. To combat this, it is a good idea to always do the following at the beginning of autumn:
- Change your house’s air filter.
- Wipe down all fan blades, window blinds, furniture and even your walls with an anti-allergen solution.
- Have your carpet professionally cleaned to ensure all irritants have been exterminated.
Fall and winter are the seasons of holiday decorations, family get-togethers and endless mounds of delectable treats. With each of these vying to fill every corner of your home, your living space will be inevitably taxed to its bursting point. Free up as much room as possible by opening up your floor plans!
For instance, you can rearrange your living room; use your basement or attic to store away unnecessary pieces of furniture or side tables. You may also wish to relocate your couch’s throw pillows or your area rug. Strategically hang decorative mirrors on your walls to make certain rooms feel larger. Finally, you can purchase space-friendly holiday decorations, such as a corner Christmas tree or items that can be hung from the ceiling.
With chilling temperatures and snowfall on the horizon, you will surely be spending plenty of time within your home. As a result, you want to make sure that your space is both functional and comfortable. To begin, take the time to swap out your warm-weather clothes for winter attire — sweaters, jeans, boots, etc. Second, make sure all blankets and throws are accessible. Third, prepare your furnace for the long winter ahead. Finally, if you have a fireplace or chimney, have it inspected by a professional; failing to do so may result in unfavorable consequences.
