When Do You Start Fall Cleaning?

The shortest and obvious answer for when you should start fall cleaning is to start when fall begins. Fall starts on the autumnal equinox which lands on or around September 22nd. It lasts until the winter equinox which is in late December.

The better answer is to assess your current home situation and start when it’s the best time for you.

To help you make your assessment, I came up with a few questions and tips you may want to keep in mind…

What Fall Cleaning Do You Need To Do?

Creating a good fall cleaning checklist is a must. It helps you to plan ahead and stay on target. It helps you keep track of what you complete and what you will still need to do. Plus it is satisfying to check things off a list!

To create a fall cleaning checklist walk from room to room through your with a notebook. Take note of what needs deep cleaned, organized and repairs that you need to make.

As you look around pay attention to:

  • Inside drawers
  • Behind furniture
  • Closets
  • Windows
  • Fans and lighting
  • Crown molding
  • Under furniture and cushions.
  • Draperies, blinds, and valances.
  • Pantry
  • Coat Closets
  • Electronics
  • Fire Places
  • Furnace and utility rooms

Do the same for the exterior of your home. Inspect:

  • Siding
  • Roof
  • Gutters
  • Garden areas
  • Garage
  • A/C or Heat Pump
  • Sidewalks
  • Driveways
  • Porches
  • Deck
  • Outdoor Furniture
  • Other Landscaping
  • Weatherstripping

Be sure to think ahead. Some things need cleaned and maintained now. Some will need to be done later in the fall. Also, think about weatherproofing your home for the upcoming winter.
