This Halloween might look a little different compared to years in the past – but here are some great cleaning tips to do prior to those trick or treaters coming to your house.

#1 Make Your Outdoor Lights as Bright as Possible

Check the label on your outdoor light fixtures and using the highest wattage bulbs they can safely handle. You can always switch them back after the holiday for a softer glow and clean out any of the outdoor lighting glass.

#2 Prop Open the Storm Door for Trick-or-Treaters and clean the storm door.
Clean the storm door – and prop open the storm door so it doesn’t get in the way when there’s a big group of kids congregated on your stoop.

#3 Clean Railings and Tighten Railings
Clean the railings with clorox and or a safe disinfectant.  Then fix any wobbly or broken porch railings is a trick-or-treat safety must, as they can cause severe injuries if anyone leans on them a little too hard.

#4 Clean and sweep off the porch and the sidewalk

Steps can get slippery in damp weather with leaves and other debris.  Make sure to clean off the steps and broom off the sidewalk.

#5 Clear the Curb — It’s the Most Important Trick-or-Treat Safety Tip
Here’s a scary statistic: Four times as many child pedestrians are killed on Halloween night than a normal night. Of all the trick-or-treat safety guidelines, this one could be the most important.  Reduce risks to little pedestrians by clearing parked cars from the curb for better visibility and placing a reflective “Watch for Children” sign at the edge of the road. On busy streets, consider having adults take turns maintaining safety in the street with a hand-held traffic control light.
