Getting Your House Clean in the Fall

Getting Your House Clean in the Fall

Spring is not the only time that you should do a deep cleaning on your home, in fact getting your house clean in the fall is every bit as important.  You spend more time in your home during the winter and the holidays aren’t as far away as you think and you want your house in order before that time.  Fall cleanup can be every bit as daunting as a spring clean, you want to make sure that every nook and cranny is cleaned before your mother in law shows up.

Despite the warm sunny days fall is only a couple of weeks away, so now is the time to get your home ready.  Grab your cleaning supplies and let’s go over exactly what you need to do to make sure that no one can find even one speck of dust when you’re done.

Preparation

Before you start you want to make sure that you have everything you need, stopping in the middle of a deep clean to run to the grocery store for toilet bowl cleaner ruins your momentum.  Having a fully stocked house cleaning kit will make your life easier and you don’t need all that much, you can clean most of your home with Dawn and water.  Here are the things you should make sure you have before you get started.

  • A good multipurpose cleaner
  • Dawn
  • Microfiber cloths
  • Scrubbing pad
  • Microfiber cloths
  • Toilet brush
  • Old toothbrush
  • Dry-cleaning sponge
  • Broom
  • Sponge mop
  • Disinfecting wipes
  • Dust mop (preferably one that can extend)
  • White vinegar
  • Vacuum
  • Baking soda

Getting Started

It doesn’t really matter how you get started or what room you choose to tackle first, that being said when we do a deep clean on a house we start at the top and work our way down both in a room and for the entire home.  Whether you start in the upstairs bedroom or in the basement is up to you but you should have a checklist of each room to keep you on track.  You also don’t need to tackle the whole house in a single day, you can work through one room at a time and work when you have the time.
