1.    Clean patio furniture, umbrellas, and children's summer toys before storing them away from the elements.

2.    Take a wire brush and remove any flaking pain from your deck and railings. Touch up paint.

3.     Examine caulk around your doors and windows and re-caulk as needed.

4.     Wash your windows.

5.     Drain and store garden hoses and sprinklers.

6.     Schedule a chimney inspection and have it cleaned if necessary. Make sure your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors have new batteries.


7.    Vacuum drapes, window treatments, and furniture—taking the time to move the furniture and vacuum underneath and behind it. Vacuum baseboards also.

8.    Have your carpets professionally cleaned. The fall weather is the perfect time to open the windows to speed drying.

9.    Wash or have all bedding cleaned, including pillows, duvets, mattress pads, blankets, and comforters. Rotate your mattress.

10.  Wash your windows.

11.  De-clutter cupboards, removing any items that have been collecting dust over the summer. Clear your kitchen counter of hardly used appliances. The time for holiday cooking is fast approaching—and clear counters make the house look cleaner!

12.  Inspect your humidifier and clean or replace the elements before the colder months arrive.

13.  Purchase enough furnace filters to last through the winter months. They should be changed monthly.

14.  Remove all cobwebs with an extendable duster so you can reach them in the ceiling corners.

15.  Inspect the working parts of your washer and dryer. Make sure washer hoses aren't cracked or split. Examine dryer exhaust for built-up lint or debris and schedule a cleaning if necessary.
