Fall Is The Perfect Time To Clean And Declutter For Peace Of Mind

What’s not to love about fall? With pumpkin spice and changing leaves most of us want to cozy down come fall. We decorate our houses and prepare for the upcoming holidays. Traditionally, spring cleaning steals the show when it comes to cleaning our homes. But, a good cleaning in the fall may be just as important. Remember, you’ll be spending a lot more time in your home than you have all summer. Here are just a few things you should add to your cleaning list.

Fall cleaning list:

  • Audit your pantry
  • Prepare your kitchen for holiday baking
  • Test your smoke detectors
  • Shampoo carpets
  • Wash windows
  • Clean dirty blinds, baseboards, and window coverings
