As winter comes to around, it’s time to think about making your home clean and cozy. Don’t have time? A local cleaning service can take this burden off your shoulders so you can enjoy the changing season. Meanwhile, here are a few tips for cleaning this winter.
Switch Out Your Seasonal Clothes
Take an hour to pull out the sweaters and jackets. As you do this, ask yourself if you’ve worn the items you are putting away. If they haven’t been worn this season, consider getting rid of them so they don’t take up space.
Make your windows sparkle so you can enjoy the falling snow. To keep your windows from looking grimy, they should be cleaned seasonally.
Replace Screens with Energy Efficient Storm Windows
Screens are no longer useful in the cooler months. Replace them with storm windows to keep the warm air from escaping.
Change Filter in Furnace
The filter in your furnace needs to be changed regularly to keep it safe and clean. Change it at the beginning of the season to keep your home’s air fresh.
Dig into the pantry and pull out those canned goods, random spices, and half used bags of sugar. Throw away anything that has expired and consolidate loose bags of baking goods.
Clean the Oven
Get ready for holiday baking by cleaning your oven. If you don’t have a self-cleaning oven, you can buy a cleaning solution. Or, consider adding this to the chore list for your local cleaning services.
Check your Smoke Detector
As you are thinking about crackling fires and baking sweet breads, remember the smoke detector. Make sure the batteries are working and dust is cleaned away. While you’re at it, check your carbon monoxide detector.
Vacuum the Furniture
Take a few minutes to get your furniture back in top shape. Take care of the dust that has settled on your furniture over the fall months. Then sit back and enjoy the last days of fall.
