As leaves start to fly, revisit your spring cleaning list and add a few seasonal extras to prepare your house for winter.
FALL CLEANING CHECKLIST
Inside Your House
  •      Wash all windows. Use glass cleaner, or one squirt of dish washing liquid on a spray bottle filled with water, and wipe down with a microfiber cloth, pick a cloudy day so you can better see any streaks.
  •      Vacuum dusty canvas, cotton and treated fabric blinds. Use a low setting with a brush attachment. Vinyl shades can be wiped down with a dampened microfiber cloth if they need a little more attention.
  •      Clean the walls. Dust, wash, rinse, and dry painted or wood paneled walls.
  •      Clean ceiling-mounted light fixtures.
  •      Vacuum and spot-clean upholstered furniture and cushions. Deep clean if necessary.
  •      Wipe down the kitchen cupboards. Empty them, wash them down, replace liners (if you use them), declutter, and reorganize.
  •      Dust off the refrigerator condenser coil. Use your vacuums brush attachment and gently vacuum it.
  •      Do the carpets. Have carpets professionally cleaned if needed.
  •      Evaluate any wooden floors. Have scratched or dull wood floors professionally scuff-sanded and re coated, or completely refinished.
  •      Spruce up your computer. Dust the CPU, clean and wipe sown the keyboard and dust off the monitor with a microfiber cloth.
  •      Straighten the closets. declutter and reorganize.
  •      Test smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Or install them, if you haven't yet.

  •      Sweep the chimneys. Have the wood-burning fireplace and stove flues and chimneys professionally inspected and swept.
