As the winter cold starts to creep in, Summer is fading out and Fall is in the air. That means it’s time to clean your home from top to bottom. Something about a complete refresh simply can’t be beaten. Here are four cleaning tips to get the job done.
1. Create a Cleaning Calendar
There are a lot of nooks and crannies in your home that don’t get regular attention. It’s a lot to get done, and you’ll need a schedule to keep the family in line. A cleaning calendar keeps everyone accountable for their chores.
2. Make a "Sell" Pile
Everybody has clutter. Getting rid of the junk you don’t use anymore is a crucial part of a good cleaning. Whether you have a yard sale out front, donate it to charity, or start auctioning it off on eBay, get stuff out of the house.
3. Clean Your Home’s Air
One of the most important things to clean in your home is the air. Changing air filters and upgrading to HEPA and/or activated carbon goes a long way to improving health. In fact, NASA has a list of houseplants that act as air purifiers. You can even bring some flowers into the house for a natural potpourri.
4. Update Your Insurance
It’s not just your home – you should clean up your finances at least once a year too. With tax season upon us, updating all your paperwork is a good idea. Since you just sold a bunch of junk, your insurance coverages could use a second look too.
