Fall Cleaning Tips with Barlow Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning Published on October 03, 2016 We’re sure you spend March, April, and May spring cleaning, but what about fall cleaning? There are several things you need to make sure you deep clean all year long, but there is some specialty cleaning that comes with autumn. Since autumn commonly arrives with sick season, you want to feel confident the air your family is breathing is also clean. Take a look at this fall cleaning check-list from Barlow Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning. Duct Cleaning The majority of the indoor air in your home enters through your ductwork, which is a piece of your HVAC system. Since pollutants, mildew, and bacteria can build up in your ducts, along with dust and dirt, it’s crucial to have your air ducts inspected and cleaned regularly. Schedule your fall heating tune-up while you’re at it, to make sure your heating and air conditioning system is running efficiently, and have your air filter swapped out to help be confident you and your loved ones are breathing the healthiest air possible. Vacuum To help keep your indoor air healthy, get to vacuuming, and not just your floors. Vacuum your furniture, blinds, lamp shades, and everything else your machine can reach. Vacuuming helps decrease allergic reactions because you’re actually sucking up those pesky allergens. Some pediatricians even recommend vacuuming daily for young ones who have more severe allergies. Dust Fall and winter times are all about indoor health, mostly because lower temperatures keep us in our homes for several months. Help keep your family’s indoor air healthy by dusting your bookshelves, windowsills, ceiling mounted light fixtures, and even the top of your cabinets. Dusting doesn’t just help keep your family breathing safe air, it also helps make sure your home is clean and prepared when it’s finally time to put up holiday decorations. Declutter You might have done this in the spring, but now it’s time to find those fall boots and throw out anything that you don’t wear or no longer fits. Fall is a perfect time to go through those closets because nonprofits are often taking donations for warmer apparel. Go through your coats, sweatshirts, winter hats, and even your winter footwear and donate any gently used pieces to your nearest shelter. Yard CleaningDon’t skip the yard! You spent your summer enjoying the backyard but now it’s time to unclog the gutters, rinse off the patio furniture, rake the leaves, and do one last mow. Also, empty out your hoses and house them properly to avoid having any water left in to freeze during the cold temperatures. Barlow Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here to make sure your HVAC system is ready to keep you warm all winter long.
