Why Autumn is the New "Spring Clean"

Although Spring is generally the time that most people like to give their homes and offices a deep clean in preparation for the new year and everything blooming and being fresh, it is actually beneficial to do it in Autumn too. Since Winter is right around the corner, what's better than having a well-organised, clean and cosy house or office to settle into as the weather gets colder. Since we've decided to make Autumn the new Spring Clean, here are our top tips for being sparkly in preparation for the colder months:

  • Dust corners and ceilings
    Around this time of year, spiders and other creepy crawlies like to invade your spaces and settle in to nest. Having a thorough high-feather dusting session, ensuring you get all of the corners and window frames will reduce the chances of insects building a home. 
  • Say goodbye to Summer
    Having a seasonal clean isn't just about actually Cleaning, it can also include organising your space and putting away any Summer items that may be lying around. Summer sports gear, toys and even equipment such as that sturdy BBQ you have been loving recently should all be cleaned, dusted and put away somewhere safe in preparation for next Summer. Getting out warm fuzzy blankets, Autumn-scented candles, scarves & gloves and the snow shovel will get you in the mood for the coming months. 
  • Have a thorough vaccing session
    As the colder days and darker nights mean you will be spending more time inside, now is the perfect time to ensure your space is vacced thoroughly, moving furniture and replacing to ensure you get all the hard-to-reach areas. 
  • Prepare for (dare we say it?!) Christmas
    Although Christmas seems far away, it will be upon us sooner than we realise. December is a month full of shopping, to-do lists and finalising everything for the year that has just passed - so why not ensure your house or office is sparkly and fresh before you enter the busy season. Whether it's office parties or family gatherings, you'll be glad you did it now when you're suddenly bogged down with jobs that need doing at the time. 

Whether you're cleaning your office space or your home, Autumn is the perfect time to do it. Make the most of the time you have before the Winter season and get started now.
