As the leaves start to change colors, we’re reminded that it’s time to do a little cleaning up at home. To make your space feel cozy for the fall and winter months, there are a few tips that can help. Read on to get started:

Switch up the sheets. Silk sheets and lightweight quilts are ideal for summer. But when the temperatures get chilly it’s time to swap those out for flannel sheets and feather down duvets. The heavier the sheets, the better night’s sleep you will get. But if you love your quilt and don’t want to stow it away, you can always fold it up at the head of the bed just in case you need an extra layer!

Dust your blinds and baseboards.
Your blinds and baseboards collect a lot of dust and allergens throughout the warmer months. So if you haven’t done so already, go around the house and clean them with a vacuum before the first cold day. By skipping this step, you can cause your heating system to blow the dust around, which can cause lots of discomfort.

Sweep the chimney. If you have a fireplace in the home, it’s a good idea to get a professional inspection and cleaning before using it. This can ensure that there’s no debris or hazard to pose a threat to your home and your family.

Vacuum regularly. It’s common for the home to get dusty when you turn the heat on, which is why it’s important to vacuum. To keep your home feeling clean, try to vacuum as often as you can – a weekly cleaning can help immensely! Bonus tip: by using an upholstery attachment for your furniture, you can protect delicate material from getting sucked in the nozzle.
