Fall is here and it's the perfect season to complete household chores to get your home all clean and cozy for the upcoming winter. As the weather starts to become colder, it's best to begin with outdoor tasks and gradually shift indoors to maintain a warm and inviting atmosphere.

CLEAN & STORE OUTDOOR FURNITURE | Make sure to clean your outdoor furniture, remove cushions, & store in a dry place or use covers. Elevate it to avoid moisture damage & check on it periodically.

INSTALL STORM WINDOWS | To boost winter insulation & energy efficiency, install storm windows/doors. Clean/repair screens & air conditioners when removing them post-summer.

WASH EXTERIOR/INTERIOR WINDOWS | Now is a great time to clean your windows, starting with the window exteriors. As you move inside, make sure to dust, clean blinds, & wipe window sills.

SWEEP/INSPECT CHIMNEYS & FIREPLACES | An annual chimney cleaning & inspection, carried out by a chimney sweep, is crucial to prevent accidental fires caused by the build-up of creosote & ensure your home's safety.

CLEAN & REVERSE CEILING FANS | Clean your ceiling fans & flip the blade switch to circulate warm air for a cozier home during cold days.

CHANGE OUT YOUR WARDROBES | Clean your closet & swap out summer clothes with winter clothes. Take the extra step to sort through your summer clothes & decide on whether to sell, donate, or discard.

DEEP-CLEAN HOUSE INTERIOR | With winter approaching, consider a deeper cleaning. In each room, tackle tasks like vacuuming under furniture, treating bathroom mold, & cleaning kitchen appliances, ensuring no area is overlooked.

WINTERIZE WATER FEATURES | For unheated outdoor pools, spas, or water features, either drain the water or use a cover. Additionally, winterize exposed pipes & faucets to prevent expensive repairs.

CLEAN/REPLACE HVAC FILTERS | Apart from HVAC system maintenance, regularly change filters in your heating & AC units to enhance air quality and reduce furnace wear & tear.

SERVICE/STORE GARDENING EQUIPMENT | As winter approaches, prepare your lawn/garden tools by cleaning, repairing, & winterizing, so they're ready for spring.
