Fall Home Cleaning Checklist

Is it that time of year already when we start preparing for hibernation just like the bears?  It seems to be with the cool crisp mornings and shorter days that are now upon us. Just like spring home maintenance, fall cleaning is just as important in preparing your home for the winter months. Below is a fall home chore checklist if you have trouble knowing where to start and what not to forget.

The outside of your home

  • Clean and store away patio furniture, umbrellas, grills & children’s summer toys.
  • Rake your leaves & fertilize your grass.
  • Remove thatch build-up in your yard.
  • Clean out your garden.
  • Give your trees and shrubs a good drink of water.
  • Wash your exterior windows.
