Fall means less sunshine, vacations, and more time spent indoors. It also means your kids back in school and more dirt, sweat, and leaves are tracked indoors! Maid services in Colorado Springs offer you more time to spend doing what you love this fall so you can worry less about cleaning. To keep your home and possessions tidy this fall between regular cleanings, consider the following fall cleaning tips for your house.
Shoes Off Policy
Place a doormat at each door and ask family members and guests to remove their shoes before entering. This simple tip keeps dirt, dust, water, and debris from tracking into your home during a busy, fun-filled fall. Your carpet, tile, or hardwood floors will stay clean longer and you’ll spend less time sweeping or vacuuming the dirt off your floors.
Switch To Paper
When you have guests over or enjoy time with your family, give yourself a break from dishes and use paper plates instead. Using your dishwasher less will keep your home cooler and you’ll enjoy a clean sink without piles of dishes. Sit back and enjoy your evening meal on plates you can recycle or toss.
Beware of Trash Odor
When it heats up in the home during the fall, trash cans tend to become smelly fast when trash is exposed to high temperatures. Clean and disinfect your trash cans for a fresh start. Change out your trash often or buy scented trash can liners to keep your house smelling fresh.
Clean Patio Doors and Tracks
Now that you’re using your patio and sliding glass doors more often, it’s time to clean the tracks and keep the doors in great working condition. Spray an all-purpose degreasing cleaner on the tracks and wrap a rag around a screwdriver. Make several swipes to wipe out the gunk. This will keep your doors opening and closing smoothly all fall long.
Leave Shower Doors Open
Leave the shower door or curtain open after you shower to allow the walls to dry. This prevents molds and mildew which means you’ll spend less time scrubbing the shower. Use a shower spray as an added deterrent to keep molds and mildew at bay.
