Autumn Cleaning Hotspots!

by Well Polsihed Southend-on-Sea, Nov 2019

1. How to clean cobwebs

It’s spider season! That means one thing for your walls, ceilings, and any other crevices that these eight-legged creatures can possibly find their way into – cobwebs.

Next time you’ve got dusting planned, tackle the cobwebs too. Grab a long feather duster, and start up-high, swiping over walls and ceilings. Don’t forget the corners of the room, and also around light fittings (you may need a ladder for this).

2. Get your windows sparkling clean

As the heating comes on in Autumn, condensation often appears around the windows. It’s important to give frames some TLC to prevent then becoming damaged from excess moisture.

Ideally, you want to clean on the outside as well as the inside. If you don’t fancy doing this yourself, get a professional in. Although it may seem like an unnecessary cost, you’ll be amazed at what a difference clean glass makes to the amount of natural light in your home.

3. How to clean skirting boards

Once you’ve done a thorough dusting, it’s time to turn your attention to another, often-neglected area – skirting boards.

If you keep on top of your skirting boards, they won’t need anything more than a quick once-over. Our favourite way to do this is with the vacuum. Pop a soft brush attachment on and gently vacuum over them.

4. Autumn is a great time to clean upholstery

It’s officially home-cinema season. Make sure your surroundings are cosy and clean by giving upholstery a refresh.

If your sofa is smelling a little strange, SF Gate has some wonderful methods for tackling all sorts of odours. For general cleaning, we like to vacuum over upholstery using a soft brush, then sprinkling baking soda over the area. Leave for 15 minutes, then vacuum once more to leave your living room furniture looking and smelling lovely.

5. Clean your fridge and freezer

More time inside can only mean one thing – more food! With the festive season coming up, you’ll need fridge and freezer space for all those sausage rolls, mince pies and many, many bottles of wine. This makes Autumn a great time to clean your fridge and freezer.

You’ll need to plan cleaning your fridge and defrosting your freezer in advance so you can empty the contents as much as possible before the clean. It’s also handy to have a cool bag and ice blocks to keep any remaining items cool.
