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:
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Prepare your kitchen for lots of cosy home cooking by clearing out your cupboards, throwing away out of date food, unused equipment and old utensils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.

We started using Alpha Power about 2 years ago when our previous very well known supplier started billing us for repairs and damage on every hire. It
...quickly became apparent from the customer service and consistency, we were dealing with a company that made sure their first priority was customer satisfaction and long term relationships, rather than maximising profit at every turn.
Rob and the team run a very efficient business, and have never let us down on all the different types of floor machines that we require as a business to clean floors from 100m2 to 100 000m2.’

This was the first time we had used Alpha Power Cleaners as they had been recommended to us, we wanted to clean the warehouse floor. So asked for some
...one to come and have a look at what size Scrubber Dryer we would need. Mick was very helpful and also suggested we have a floor sweeper to sweep the floor first which was brilliant picked up all the dust. They did us a good deal so we hired both items for the week.
Will definitely be using them again.
Happy customer :-)
