As the summer season draws to a close, many people find themselves with a desire to clean up their homes in preparation for the fall. If you’re one of these people, don’t worry! There are plenty of end of summer cleaning tips that can help you get your home in order.
First, start by decluttering. Go through your closets and donate any clothes you haven’t worn in the past year. Sort through your pantry and throw out any expired food items. This will not only make your space feel cleaner and more organized, but it will also give you more room for the things you actually want to keep.
It’s also a good idea to declutter when changing out seasonal home décor. Take the time to go through holiday decorations you don’t plan to use this year, and consider donating.
Next, focus on deep cleaning. This means scrubbing floors, washing windows, and dusting surfaces that may have been neglected during the summer months (like baseboards and ceiling fans).
Windows: Summer weather can leave behind dirt and grime on your windows. Clean them inside and out to let in more light during the darker months.
Carpets: Summer can bring in a lot of dirt and allergens into your home. Shampoo or have your carpets professionally cleaned to get rid of any buildup.
AC Filters: If you have central air conditioning, make sure to change the filter. This will help to keep your home’s air clean and prevent your system from working too hard.
Garage: Take some time to clean out your garage before the winter months. This will give you more space to park your car and store any winter gear.
Refrigerator: Clean out your refrigerator and freezer, getting rid of any expired or old food. This will help to prevent odors from building up and keep your food fresh. Wipe each shelf thoroughly and reorganize.
Bedding: As the weather gets cooler, it’s time to switch out your bedding. Wash your summer bedding and store it away, ready for next year.
By following these tips, you’ll be able to get your home ready for the fall and winter months. Not only will your home be cleaner and more comfortable, but you’ll also be able to enjoy it more during the colder months. So, get started today and enjoy a clean and cozy home all year round!
