Clean up before you close up. Most dirt is tracked in during the Spring and Summer months. If you don’t give your house a good scrub before it gets too cold, you will be shut in with all the dust and grime for the entire Winter.
Prepare your home for the holiday season. If you host holiday parties or big family get-togethers, why not save your self some time later by doing a lot of the cleaning now? You will be less stressed and better able to enjoy being a hostess.
Protect your home. Autumn is also a good opportunity to make sure your house doesn’t become a home for bugs, mice and other critters for the Winter months. By doing an extra clean in window sills, floor boards and around and behind refrigerator, stove and all nooks and crannies is a certain way to make sure these pests won’t find a home.
