While we’ve been blessed with a reasonably mild introduction to autumn, there’s no doubting the fact that we’re likely to experience some pretty changeable weather over the coming weeks. The leaves have started to fall and the nights are getting colder, so it’s probably time to carry out one of the most important cleaning schedules of the year.

“Extreme Weather Can Bring Cleaning Schedules to a Standstill”


It’s essential that you’re preparing in the right way for what the British weather has to throw at us. We’ve seen some of the most extreme weather in decades over the last two years, with high wind speeds, problematic snow fall and flooding all becoming a regular experience during both the latest and earliest parts of the year.

It’s this type of weather that brings everything to a standstill, including house maintenance and cleaning jobs. So to make sure you’ve got everything done prior to the days getting shorter and the weather taking a turn for the worse, here’s a cleaning schedule to follow over the next couple of weeks:

Clean Windows

The summer can cause windows to get particularly dirty, so apply some cleaning solution along with a polish that will help to maintain a sparkly finish during the winter.

Clear/Clean Your Garden

If you’ve left toys, chairs, tables and other garden items out during the summer, now’s the time to store them away.

Check Storage Priorities

By this we mean analysing what it is that’s taking up storage. You won’t need ice pops in the freezer anymore for example. Take this time out to free up some room in preparation for storing warm duvets and thick woollen jumpers.

Clean Beds

Beds often require a specialist deep cleaning service every few years and there’s no better time to get started than just before the start of winter. Add layers and warmer bedding to suit the declining temperatures.

Today we’re continuing on with our summer cleaning checklist for you to follow. It’s always a good idea to follow a detailed checklist during whilst carrying out a thorough household cleaning schedule. The three we’ve gone for today are less to do with the season itself but more focused on getting those jobs done that are often ignored. It’s quite easy to forget about some of the simpler household cleaning tasks when you’re caught up in the furore of the summer holidays.


Scrubbing Windows

Windows play a huge role during the summer, especially if you own a conservatory. Windows provide us with the stunning natural light that we love to bask in during the warmer weather. It also creates a pleasant homely atmosphere throughout your home. However, windows need to be cleaned as much as any other household furnishing or appliance, as any dirt marks or stains can really show up when the sun is shining on them. Make sure you clean the windows on both the inside and outside using your preferred window cleaning solution. Try and wipe horizontally on one side and vertically on the other so that you can clearly see which side needs a few final touches. It’s also vital to wipe away any dust particles and cobwebs before applying the solution.

Cleaning the Garage

If you have a garage then this is one that will apply to you. Garages provide plenty of space for all kinds of things, from carrying out DIY work, storing vehicles and carrying out important maintenance work to music practice, home gyms and much more. It’s always a good idea to keep your garage in top shape for whatever project comes next and with the weather at its best throughout the summer, there’s no better time to organise shelves, sweep away dust and throw out any loose item.

Cleaning Sliding Doors

Many people have sliding doors in their property which require extra attention due to their regular use throughout the summer. If you have other forms of patio doors that are also regularly used, this tip will apply to you as well. The sliding mechanism on any sliding patio door can cause dirt from outdoors to get caught in the grooves, which can make it difficult to open them smoothly. You can use a stick or screwdriver wrapped in cloth to scrub away at any hardened dirt or you can apply some cleaning solutions in the grooves to loosen mud.

There are your three tips for this week. Stay tuned as we’ll be back in a week to make sure you’re up to date with our list of important summer cleaning tips! In the meantime, get in touch with us today for more information on our specialist cleaning services here at Apple Clean.
