Fall Cleaning Tips with Mountainwest Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning Published on October 03, 2016 You may have taken part in spring cleaning, but have you ever thought about fall cleaning? There are many things you need to make sure you deep clean repeatedly through the year, but there is some specialty cleaning that comes with the fall season. Since this season typically arrives with sick season, you want to make sure the air you are breathing is also clean. Review this fall cleaning check-list from Mountainwest Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning. Duct Cleaning The majority of the indoor air inside your home comes through your duct system, which is incorporated into your HVAC system. Since microbes, mildew, and bacteria can dirty up your ducts, along with dust and dirt, it’s important to have your air ducts checked and cleaned routinely. Schedule your fall heating tune-up while you’re at it, to make sure your heating and air conditioning system is operating efficiently, and have your air filter swapped out to help be sure you and your loved ones are breathing the healthiest air possible. Vacuum To help maintain healthy indoor air, get to vacuuming, and not just your flooring. Vacuum your furniture, curtains, counters, and everything else your machine can reach. Vacuuming helps lower allergic reactions because you’re really sucking up those pesky allergens. Some pediatricians even suggest vacuuming everyday for children who have more severe allergies. Dust Fall and winter times are all about indoor health, mostly because lower temperatures keep us indoors for several months. Help keep your family’s indoor air healthy by dusting your bookshelves, windowsills, ceiling mounted light fixtures, and even the top of your cabinets. Dusting isn’t just to help keep your family breathing healthy air, it also helps make sure everything is clean and ready to go when it’s finally time to decorate for the holidays. Declutter You may have done this in the spring, but now it’s time to get out those fall boots and get rid of anything that you don’t wear or no longer fits. Fall is the ideal time to clean out those closets because nonprofits are often collecting donations for warmer apparel. Go through your jackets, sweatshirts, scarves, and even your winter boots and donate any gently used items to your closest shelter. Yard CleaningDon’t neglect the outdoors! You spent your summer enjoying the backyard but now it’s time to unclog the gutters, wash off the patio furniture, rake the leaves, and do one final mow. Also, empty out your hoses and store them properly to keep from having any water left in to freeze during the cold temperatures. Mountainwest Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here to make sure your heating system is ready to keep you warm all winter long.
