Autumn is near and most home owners are starting to clean out the gutters, rake leaves and store summer garden furniture in the garage— but what about cleaning the house?

Fall is just the best time to review those spring-cleaning checklists, which you’ve failed to do and give your home a thorough, deep clean up in preparation for the cold weather of the holiday season. Most people rely only on their eyes when deciding whether their home is clean or not. However the dirt that cannot be easily seen – harmful bacteria and deeply embedded dust, is the one that really requires attention and even help from professional cleaning company.

Traditional at-home cleaning chores like vacuuming, wiping and dusting only remove relatively small part of dirt and microbes, which lurk in your floors and furniture. Without a thorough, deeper cleaning, they will be trapped inside your home for the winter. This will impact not only the appearance of your home, but it will also raise the health risks in the place. Professional cleaning companies can help you extract over 97% of the dirt from your house. It certainly is a significantly higher rate than DIY-cleaning methods. Nevertheless, there are a few things you can do by yourself to maintain your house cleaned for longer period of time.

Fall Cleaning and Maintenance of Your Home

Experts provide the following autumn cleaning tips to enjoy a clean and healthier home:

Keep the Dirt Outside

There is an effective and easy way to keep dirt, mud, and dead leaves out of your home. Just put doormats in front of every door of your home. Taking your shoes off when you enter inside is also a useful habit, that will help you reduce the amount of dirt and help you clean and maintain your carpets and floors easier. Also, keep the windows closed when raking the dead leaves in the garden to prevent dust and tiny particles get into your house and set into your furniture and carpets.

Make Quick Clean Ups

Try to react quickly whenever you can – clean up any food and liquid spills and mud spots to prevent them becoming stubborn stains. Consider keeping a stain-removing product at hand at all time. You can also use the wonderful cleaning properties of baking soda and vinegar for quick and eco-friendly clean up around the house.

Clean High Traffic Areas More Often

Dirt never stops setting in your carpets and furniture. Keep up with the high traffic areas at your house by vacuuming them 2-3 times a week and the rest of the house – at least once a week. The same rule applies to your furniture – you can use a portable vacuum cleaner to maintain upholstery cleaned and dust-free.

Call Professional Cleaning Company Before Winter

Nobody can manage to deal with all the work alone. In the end of the autumn you can book a professional cleaning team for deep cleaning procedures at affordable prices – cleaning your wall-to-wall-carpets and upholstered furniture. Calling specialists twice a year helps you maintain the health, cleanliness and value of your home.
