You have probably heard of Spring Cleaning but have you ever heard of Fall Cleaning? Fall Cleaning is the exact same action of deep cleaning all of the neglected areas of your home. The only difference is that it takes place in the fall season.
When should I Start Fall Cleaning?
Fall Cleaning should start when you would assume it should, Fall! The Fall season starts in late September. The leaves start to drift to the ground and the temperature begins to drop. The fall season is notorious for stormy weather. With stormy weather falling, there is no better time to start tidying up your indoor space.
Why is Fall Cleaning as Important as Spring Cleaning?
Fall cleaning is just as important as Spring Cleaning. Fall Cleaning is not only about deep Cleaning, it is also about the health benefits. Being sure to take care of your home every other season is crucial to keeping your space healthy and comfortable for everything the cold weather will bring.
