1. Store Patio Furniture

It’s important to clean your patio furniture before storing it away for winter as the dirt residue may develop mold or mildew. Another patio cleaning tip: don’t forget to drain and shut down the outdoor faucets followed by storing them in a frost-free space.

2. Switch Screens to Storm Windows

We hate to see the warm weather go, but it’s time to prepare for the cold weather headed our way. A great tip when switching your screens to storm windows is to label each screen, so you know what goes where. Do a quick wipe down before installing the storm windows.

3. Change Furnace Filters

With fall and winter on the way, you’re going to be spending a lot more time indoors. Transform your home into a safe and healthy place by changing your furnace filter. A clean air filter improves the air quality in your home whether you’re using the air conditioning or heat. Not sure how frequently you should be changing your air filters? Find out the averages for replacing furnace filters.

4. Regularly Clean Gutters

As the leaves begin to fall, cleaning your gutters will jump to the top of your to-do list. If you don’t present this as a priority, you can risk clogging the gutters with debris, and that could result in falling gutters, potential flooding, stains and more.

5. Organize Garage 

Before you know it, winter will be here, and you’re going to want to park your car in the garage. Get ahead of the game by cleaning, organizing and sprucing up your space! Searching for some cleaning guidance? Follow the to-do list from HGTV on Organizing the Garage!
