8 Areas In Your Home That Need Attention During The Fall

on Oct 1, 2019

Having a weekly cleaning routine is great. But there are a couple of times a year when you need to pay special attention to certain areas of your home in order to keep everything running ship-shape. Today we’re talking about 8 areas in your home that need your attention during the fall

How to get your home ready for the fall

1. Underneath surfaces

The first area in your home that needs attention during the fall is underneath household surfaces. More specifically, underneath your countertops and tables. Often overlooked, this area of your home can get pretty dirty if you don’t keep up on it. It can also harbor spreading germs and trap odors. 

2. Inside and outside of drawers

Another area in your home you’ll want to pay attention to during the fall is the inside of all your drawers. This is a household chore that involves taking your time and being very organized. Working by room, empty out all our drawers and clean them from the inside out using a multi-surface cleaner.

3. Small kitchen appliances

Though you should clean out your appliances on a regular basis, it’s best to give them a good deep clean at the start of each season. Since it’s the start of fall, it’s a good time to go through and clean out all your small appliances and organize them by use.

4. Refrigerator vents and coils

You probably don’t even remember the last time you clean the vents and coils on your refrigerator. This is something that should be done at least once a year and fall is a good time to do it. These areas can accumulate dust which can cause inefficient cooling and an increase in electricity usage. Go through and wipe them down ensuring their dust-free and then check the filter to see if it needs to be replaced.

5. Inside and outside of cabinets

Remember how we talked about cleaning inside all the drawers in the house? You’ll want to do the same thing with all of your cabinets. This creates an opportunity for you to get more organized and it allows you to get rid of extra things you don’t need while you’re at it.

6. The chimney 

For the safety of your home and everyone it in, servicing your chimney is something that should be done at least once per year. This isn’t something you should do yourself instead you should hire a professional.

7. Inside the dishwasher

Cleaning the inside of your dishwasher should be on your monthly cleaning checklist, but in case it’s not, add it to your fall cleaning list. Run a cup of vinegar through your dishwasher and then wipe down the inside lip using a multi-surface solution.

8. Closet floors

Most of the time when we clean our floors we only get a small amount of the floor in the closet area. This is a good time for you to empty out your closet floor completely and give it a nice deep clean.

If you have yet to do so, check out our fall cleaning checklist and our fall closet turnover for more fun organizing tips for this fall season.
