Fall Cleaning Tips with Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning Published on October 03, 2016 You may have taken part in spring cleaning, but what about fall cleaning? There are several things you need to be sure to deep clean throughout the year, but there is some extra cleaning that comes with fall. Since this season typically arrives with cold and flu season, you want to be sure the air you are breathing is also clean. Take a look at this fall cleaning check-list from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning. Duct Cleaning The bulk of the indoor air in your home enters through your duct system, which is a piece of your HVAC system. Since microbes, mildew, and bacteria can accumulate in your ducts, along with dust and dirt, it’s important to have your air ducts inspected and cleaned regularly. Schedule your fall heating tune-up while you’re at it, to confirm your heating and air conditioning system is functioning efficiently, and have your air filter replaced to help be sure you and your loved ones are breathing the healthiest air possible. Vacuum To help keep your indoor air healthy, start vacuuming, and not just your floors. Vacuum your furniture, blinds, counters, and everything else your appliance can reach. Vacuuming helps reduce allergic reactions because you’re actually sucking up those pesky allergens. Some doctors even advise vacuuming everyday for children who have more critical allergies. Dust Fall and winter seasons are all about indoor health, mostly because colder temperatures keep us inside 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 isn’t just to help keep your family breathing healthy air, it also helps make sure everything is clean and ready to go when it’s ultimately time to get out your holiday décor. Declutter You probably did this in the spring, but now it’s time to get out those fall jackets and get rid of anything that doesn’t fit or you no longer wear. Fall is a perfect time to go through those closets because nonprofits are often taking donations for warmer apparel. Go through your jackets, sweaters, winter hats, and even your winter shoes and donate any gently used items to your closest shelter. Yard CleaningDon’t forget the outdoors! You spent your summer enjoying the backyard but now it’s time to clean your gutters, wash off the patio furniture, rake the leaves, and do one last mow. Also, clear out your hoses and put them away properly to prevent having any water left in to freeze during the cooler temperatures. Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here to make sure your furnace is prepared to keep you warm all winter long.
