With the nights drawing in, what better time to get your home clean and tidy ready for cosy evenings indoors?
As the gardening work begins to slow to the sweeping of leaves, your home starts to become a haven from the cold once again when Autumn rolls around. The heating comes on and the curtains are drawn earlier, so here are some tips to get your home clean and tidy in preparation for the longer nights ahead…
Clear the outside
Stowing away your summer gardenware after a good clean may feel like you’re giving up hope on that Indian summer. However, it means it will last a lot longer and save you time and money in the long run.
As the prospect of home-cooked hearty meals become more enticing, so too should your kitchen.
Clean out cupboards and give the shelves in units and fridges a good scrub. Fixtures, fittings, ovens and other appliances need to be cleared of any dirt build-up inevitable in kitchens; this can prevent health risks.
Battening down the hatches and turning up the heating for the colder months can have the drawbacks of trapping dust and creating mould in the house. Make sure that soft furnishings and hard-to-reach places are vacuumed thoroughly to keep your home a happy, healthy one.
Sort your bed
Vacuum or steam-clean your mattress. This is important to reduce the risk of mites, and washing your bedding at a high temperature kills those that may have thrived in the warm environment.
Clean the light fittings
Make sure your home is seen in its best light; remove and dust the light fittings to leave your house with a warm, inviting glow each time you return. You’d be surprised what builds up in the hard to reach places and the difference it makes.
Clear the gutters
Often overlooked but never to be undervalued; clean gutters allow for proper water drainage to prevent things like house leaks, moss build-up and attracting colonies of unwanted critters.
Clean your windows
Removing the pollen and dust that the warmer months can bring allows you to benefit fully from the freshness and colours that Autumn brings.
Also, opening your windows for a period of time each morning allows for your home to get the flow of air it needs after the heating goes on.
