Have You Made a Fall Organization List for Your Home?
Fall is here, and with it comes a bunch of chores and to-dos to take care of before the cold weather sets in and we feel like huddling up inside. Whether it’s performing tests to ensure that your alarms are keeping you safe, protecting your wood floors, or purifying your air, it’s important to set aside time to take care of your home.
Have you been struggling to work through your list of home organization tasks?
Take a list of our suggestions for simple organizational steps that will leave your home sparkling and your mind at ease:
Protect Your Floors
Your floors see lots of daily abuse, which is why it’s important to take the time to keep them treated and shining like new, especially as we move into a season which is known for being hard on flooring.
Before the winter months set in, take the time to assess the state of your floors and stain and protect them as needed.
Wash and insulate all your windows.
We often don’t realize how much dirt, grime, and water stains are actually present on our windows until we begin washing them, so set aside some time to thoroughly wash both the inside and outside of your windows before it becomes too cold to do so.
Once you’re finished scrubbing, stretch large pieces of heavy-duty plastic over the inside panes and secure them against the windowsills with tape. Insulating your windows in this way helps prevent cool air from seeping into your home, and can help you save money on your heating costs over the winter.
Test Your Alarms
Your smoke detectors and your carbon monoxide detectors are critically important to your safety because they are tasked with alerting you to dangerous situations involving smoke, fire, and deadly gas.
Check the batteries in each unit and perform thorough testing each season in order to ensure that they are working properly and will function in the event of an emergency.
Clean and Vacuum Your Rugs
Airing and vacuuming your rugs doesn’t just help keep them looking plush and beautiful, it also helps remove unpleasant irritants and items which can become trapped in the fibers, including food crumbs, bacteria, dander, dust mites, and more.
Vacuuming your rugs helps eliminate the presence of these items in your indoor air, and can reduce your allergies, respiratory problems, discomfort, and can help keep your heating system working more efficiently.
