Fall is quickly approaching us. It’s time to whip out your list for fall cleaning and get to work. These five fall cleaning tips will help you start cleaning so your home is prepped for winter. Ready, set, clean!
#1. Get Several Brooms
I have found that getting organized for fall might require a lot of sweeping. So many leaves come in the house at various times, so I like to keep several brooms handy. These brooms allow me to do a quick sweep, no matter where I’m at in the house.
#2. Treat Fall Like Spring
Everyone thinks that you can only get rid of items in the spring, but you can also get rid of items in the fall. Now is the time to clear out old items and get rid of clutter. Organization doesn’t have a season, it should be something you’re continuously doing.
#3. Ask for Help
The more people you have helping you clean, the less time it will take. Don’t be afraid to delegate chores to other members of the family or outsource to other people. One chore that is perfect to outsource is gutter cleaning, and you can use Gutter Cleaning Troy to help. Create a list and check off items as you go. There is no right or wrong way to clean during those fall months, so just get to it.
#4. Get Out the Winter Items
It’s never too early to start prepping for winter. Since you know the cold weather is coming anyways, go ahead and try to get ahead. You can get out the winter items like blankets, winter clothing, and even winter boots. I’m telling you, you’re wise to go ahead and make this transition while you’re already cleaning your home during the fall months.
The summer months seem to bring about a lot of dust. Take the time to do a lot of dusting during your fall cleaning spree. You’ll want to take items off the wall and make sure they are dusted as well. Make a list of the things you have already dusted, so you’re not doubling the work for yourself.
As you can see, doing your fall cleaning is just as important as spring cleaning. If you don’t feel like doing a good fall cleaning you can always check out Simplymaid. You can learn more about Simplymaid by visiting their site. What tips would you add to this list?
Thanks, your fall tips just helped me and my cousin in cleaning the whole house
Dusting is always last on my list since it’s my least favorite.
We do this simply because it feels good to get out the items that you know you aren’t going to need anymore!
Thanks for the great tips!
I love cleaning and organizing and love it even more when someone does it for me. My daughter in law organized all the Christmas wrapping stuff after Christmas
These are all good tips that are very helpful. Thanks for sharing them.
I agree on getting items ready for winter, it comes along quickly and I hate looking for coats, boots and other things at the last minute.

The tip about several brooms is a good one. Fall does bring in lots of leaves.
I run the fan on my furnace all the time and change the filter monthly whether heat or air conditioning and it helps reduce dust.
Thanks for sharing all of these tips.
I agree that one should not be afraid to ask for help. It feels awesome when everything is fresh and clean. I really need to sweep my back hallway more often
I definitely agree about asking for help if needed. Thank you for sharing.

I fall clean as well, its always a good time to purge, donate stuff my kids have outgrown or worn out. We always try to give a few toys too.
Great stuff! I need to get some cleaning done myself!

These are all great tips. I especially like to recruit help when tackling big cleaning jobs.
Good tips, I like to split up the cleaning through the year.
Thanks for the great tips. And if I am doing dishes or general cleaning I try to wear waterproof gloves to protect my hands.

Great tips! I had never thought about having multiple brooms but that totally makes sense! Because what do I do…walk all over the house recovering the broom a bunch of times, lol!
Thanks for linking up to the Weekend Wind-Down party this week. Would you consider adding our button or a text link somewhere on your blog so we can feature you? Thanks so much!
I actually like Fall cleaning better… For me, in SC the hot weather keeps the house all shut up from using the A/C all summer, so I love opening the windows and feeling the cool fall air.
Do we have to do fall cleaning too? 🙂 I haven’t even finished my spring cleaning! 🙂 I better get a move-on…
