VACAVILLE, CA, Oct 01, 2014—Now that fall has arrived, you're likely putting away your grill and clearing out that patio furniture. In addition to cleaning up after summer, it's a great idea to clean for fall. In the following article, Stephen Spencer, Bev Dorsett & Sue and Steve Kappel, Broker/Owners of Coldwell Banker - Kappel Gateway tells us how to prep your home for the fall season.
1. Wash your windows. “Spring and summer may have left a film of pollen and other debris over your windows,” says Sue and Steve Kappel. Give them a rinse inside and outside to watch the leaves change through sparkling glass.
2. Clean chimney and flue. If you have a fireplace, you may already be stocking up on wood for those chilly fall nights. However, it's a good idea to hire someone to clean out your chimney and flue before lighting up, to rid your home of old ash and creosote that could be an irritant, and cause unwanted fires.
3. Have a dust party. During the winter months, we spend a lot more time indoors. “To prep, give your home a good dust to rid your walls, baseboards and even your ceiling of pesky dust particles,” suggests Sue and Steve Kappel.
4. Update your window treatments. Swap those airy summer curtains for your heavier winter window garb. This will keep drafts at bay and help lend your home a cozy fall feeling.
5. Clean your oven. Fall and winter are for roasting and baking. Make sure your oven is in tip-top shape by giving it a good scrub.
