We know that you’ve given your home a deep clean last spring, and you’ve been maintaining to keep the dust off this summer, but you should also show your home some love this upcoming fall season. Here’s where to start:

Fall Cleaning Checklist

Clean Your Pantry

Declutter and organize your pantry before the fall season begins. Since fall is full of holidays and gatherings, an organized pantry can make your kitchen run more smoothly. Get rid of expired items, empty bottles, and containers. It would help you be aware of items you need to restock or maybe find items you need.

Give Your Carpet a Good Scrub

It’s time to shampoo your carpet and give it a good scrub! Cleaning experts suggest hiring a professional carpet cleaner if your budget allows you to. However, you can also do it yourself. All you need is a vacuum cleaner and a bottle of vinegar, and a washing-up liquid solution.

Test and Clean Your Smoke Detectors

One of the chores you should definitely add to your fall cleaning checklist is to clean accumulated dust in your smoke detector and replace the batteries if needed. Use your vacuum’s soft brush attachment to clean your detector’s openings.

Turn Your Mattress Over

Flipping your mattress can prevent body impressions from causing certain parts to slump. We also recommend sprinkling baking soda to neutralize odors and to vacuum it afterward.

Vacuum All Upholstered Surfaces

The last chore to check off your fall cleaning checklist is to vacuum sofas, chairs, mattresses, cushions, and every upholstered surface in your home.
