Has The Time Come For Fall House Cleaning?

Maybe in the spring you thoroughly cleaned your house, knowing that the summer months would be so busy that you wouldn't have time to pay attention to deep house cleaning. Now that fall has arrived, perhaps you've decided to have fall cleaning, just like you had traditional spring cleaning. Doing house cleaning chores now will just mean that your house will be ready for the holidays. 

From huge jobs like fireplace and chimney inspections and the cleaning that accompanies those, to smaller chores like cleaning porcelain figurines, here are some ideas that might help you.

Arrange For Inspections

How long has it been since you've had things like your fireplace and your chimney inspected? If you saw pictures of what is often found inside of chimneys, you might have scary dreams every night. And you know by just looking that it might be past time to have your fireplace inspected.

Even before you begin your big housecleaning project, consider arranging for professionals to inspect the fireplace and the chimney. And if you think the sewer line needs inspecting, add that to your list, too. Contact a company like Home Scope by Cornerstone to schedule the service. Having those things inspected and cleaned might cost you some important money, but it will more than likely be some of the best money you spend on your house. The inspectors will have the training and the experience to make sure there is no blockage and that everything is working the way it should work. That will eliminate danger that could come from problems you can't see, but that are there. 

While you're at it, think of having the dryer vent checked, too. That could prevent a fire that could be devastating.

Pat Attention To Smaller Chores

Compared to the attention given to things like the fireplace and the chimney, anything else you do in the way of house cleaning might seem like child's play. Think of going from room to room to make notes of things that need attention.

For example, while you're in the living room, it might be obvious that the furniture needs dusting. However, how long has it been since you hand-cleaned the beautiful porcelain figurines that add personality to the room? When you clean the bathrooms, it will be obvious that toilets, showers, sinks, and bathtubs need cleaning. Think of the last time you cleaned the side cabinets where toothbrushes and toothpaste are kept? In other words, if you want to thoroughly clean your house this fall, pay attention to every detail.
