Once summer is all said and done, fall is right around the corner ready to bring in colder weather, pumpkin spiced lattes and brightly coloured leaves. For many, this is a season to celebrate. After all, this transitory period within the year brings cooler weather for those who have been suffering from the sweltering heat. But what are some of the potential negatives of this season?
Well, first of all, this is usually the time where young people start up school and work for adults becomes a bit more stressful. With the holidays creeping their way into this timeline, it truly is a time to hunker down inside the home and get some work done before taking those well deserved breaks.
During this period, lots of time will be spent within the home, whether due to work or hosting holiday parties. Due to all the chaos that follows the summer, there’s a good chance that your house will be looking less than spectacular. The last thing you should ever have to deal with when you’re stuck inside the home, we believe, is mess. This is because it will almost always get in the way of your work and productivity overall. Messy homes usually have an effect of negativity and sadness on one’s mood, so it is imperative that you undergo a house cleaning before this season comes around so you can get work done in a more comfortable, clean space. To learn about how to do this the right way, our team at Dust Busters has come up with some helpful advice below.
Clean Out That Fireplace
Do you own an indoor fireplace that isn’t electric? If so, we highly recommend that you clean this part of your home before fall rolls around. This is mainly due to the fact that a fireplace gets a lot of use within the seasons of both fall and winter. Cozying up by the fireplace has been (and will always be) a really great way to relax and enjoy this time of year. Simply clean your fireplace of any debris and extra soot, inspect the flue and always ensure that every door and shield is working properly. Also, keep in mind that the Ontario Fire Code requires a chimney to be inspected thoroughly at least once a year in order to burn safely and minimize the risk of a potential house fire.
Clean Your Windows & Window Sills
During the months of summer, you likely opened up your windows to let that nice air run inside of your home. Although this is a great way to get some fresh air, with it comes the potential for dirt, bugs, debris and dust to enter your home. Once the warm weather finally comes to a close and you’re almost ready to hunker down, take a look at the state of your windows. Are they dirty and dusty due to them being open for so long? Have bugs and dirt gotten caught within the crevice of your window frame? If so, be sure to take a damp cloth and wipe these areas down to get rid of all the gunk. Also be sure to use a window cleaner on the panels to make them look nice and shiny.
Get Your Furnace Ready
Just as quickly as fall has come into the picture, so will winter. Time flies faster than you think, so we believe it is super important that you take the necessary steps to ensure your home is warm for the upcoming cold weather. This is the perfect time to do regular maintenance on your furnace such as replacing the filter and looking to see that everything is copacetic. If you are unsure, you can always hire a professional to take a look at your furnace to further relieve your doubts.
