Autumn Cleaning Checklist

As autumn gets well under way, getting your home ready for the cold seasons ahead should be on your mind. With the arrival of shorter, colder and damper days, there will be fewer good opportunities to give your home a thorough clean.

So, stash away the remnants of summer and prepare your house for the onset of winter, with our autumn cleaning checklist.



As we wave goodbye to summer and prepare for colder months, there are a few preparatory outdoor tasks to be done:

  • Clean and store away garden furniture, barbecues and any kid’s toys that are still left outside
  • Check any outdoor paintwork or wooden trims and carry out any necessary touch ups, treatments and maintenance
  • Wash the exterior of your windows
  • Inspect your gutters and drainpipes and clear away any accumulated debris, leaves, and blockages



Throughout winter, it’s likely you’ll be spending more time indoors. Ensure your home is comfortable, cosy and clean by carrying out these tasks:


Whole house

  • Dust and clean light fittings and fixtures
  • Dust hard to reach crevices and corners – autumn is of course the time of year spiders try to make their home in your house!
  • If your home is liable to damp and problematic mould growth, consider getting a dehumidifier to reduce moisture in the air
  • Clean all around your radiators – as it’s time to turn back on the heating you’ll want to make sure your heating as working at peak efficiency
  • Give your floors and carpets a deep clean with a carpet shampooer or floor scrubber



  • Wash summer clothes and bedding and store them away for the winter
  • Unpack winter coats, clothes and bedding and hang them out to air before using to get rid of musty smells



  • Prepare your kitchen for lots of cosy home cooking by clearing out your cupboards, throwing away out of date food, unused equipment and old utensils
  • Give your oven a welcome deep clean – steam cleaners can help make light work of this gruelling task


For larger tasks, or a more thorough deep clean, hiring professional cleaning equipment can be very helpful.
