When the fall and winter months begin to arrive, keeping the clean home can be more than difficult with windows closed and children running rampant throughout the house. There are a few ways to help with keeping your home clean during the fall and winter months regardless of your budget and size of your house.
Dust and Sweep Daily
Dusting and sweeping each day is a must during the cooler months of the year, especially with shoes and socks tacking in dust each day.
Consider Hiring a Professional Service
Consider hiring a professional maid service to maintain your home through winter and fall months. Because bugs and dust run rampant through these times, having a scheduled cleaning service is often recommended if possible.
Keep Clutter from Lying Around
In order to rid dust build-up, keep clutter from lying around in baskets and bins. Instead, put bins and baskets away in closets and other storage areas. Keeping clutter from building up in the fall and winter months is another way to avoid surprises from bugs and spiders who have chosen to make their nest in plants and other small crevices, including boxes and bins filled with clutter. Ridding clutter is one of the best ways to put your mind at ease if you have any fear of insects.
Use Bug Sprays and Killers
Using bug and spider killers is another way to keep invasions of pests and insects from entering your home in the fall and winter months of the year. It is also possible to set additional spider traps in place to keep from allowing other bugs and insects from entering home. Be sure to place traps and other insect sprays near entrances, windows and any other crevices that make it simple or easy for insects and spiders to enter the home without effort.
Wash Floor Consistently
Wash floors consistently to from mud buildup and other bacteria that can lead to sickness and illness in future. If you or anyone in your home walks barefoot in the home it is especially important to keep floors as clean as possible on a daily or weekly basis.
Keep Windows Clear of Chalking Up Ice
Always keep windows clear from chalking up ice, as this can cause immense pressure on the glass, which may lead to it breaking and in need of repair.
Dust Fans and Other Hard-To-Reach Places
Always be sure to dust fans and other hard-to-reach places during the fall and winter months, as this is when most dust accumulates.
