Get Organized This Fall and Make a List for Your Home

As we transition from the warm summer months to the cooler autumn days, it’s important to make the time to organize our homes and prepare to spend more time indoors. This includes doing some cleaning, a little organizing, testing some important devices, and much more.


Keep reading to see some of our suggestions for items to include on your fall to-do list:

Vacuum and Clean Your Rugs

Rugs are an easy way to add instant charm and personality to a room, but they can also be breeding ground for dust mites, bacteria, and viruses, and catch dander and other irritants inside their fibers. When you step on your rugs, these items get thrown into the air, launching them into your air and into your mouth, nose, or your ventilation system.

Take the time to keep your allergies and dry eyes at bay, and protect the integrity of your home’s heating and cooling system by taking the time to thoroughly vacuum your rugs this season.

Clean and Insulate Your Windows

Are you tired of looking at spotty, stained glass every time you look out the window? Then take a little time to thoroughly scrub the grime and water stains from the glass (on both sides) before the cooler seasons settle in.

This important step can save you hundreds of dollars on heating costs, so make sure not to skip it.

Test Your Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors

This is an important step which should be a part of all seasonal chores and to-do lists, because these systems are tasked with the critical job of alerting you and your loved ones to smoke, fires, and dangerous gas leaks.

Spend the time to check the batteries in each unit and to test them to ensure that they will work when you need them the most.

Protect Your Floors

It’s likely that your floors have seen a fair bit of abuse throughout the summer season; from barefoot running to shoes, to mud, to toys and furniture, there are lots of ways that your wooden floors can become damaged.

In order to protect your floors and keep them looking beautiful, it’s important to invest in them and to spend the time each season assessing whether or not they need to be treated with a protective coating.
