Is Fall cleaning really a thing? You bet it is! 🍁  And PINCH is here to help.

Fall cleaning sounds daunting, but it really doesn’t have to be. PINCH is here to provide helpful tips and a step-by-step strategy to knock out your fall cleaning quickly and efficiently.

Let’s start with the basics - What exactly is fall cleaning and why should you care? That’s easy — it’s a deep clean of not only the interior, but the exterior of your home to prepare your space for winter. Fall cleaning is important because you are about to spend way more time indoors and have an influx of visitors in your home over the holidays, right? You need a clean, safe and clutter free space. 

So where do you begin? Okay, here goes…

Step 1 - Download the PINCH App & Book a Cleaning Instantly — Take a tip from the pro’s and go ahead and book a recurring home cleaning through the PINCH App at a discounted price. You can stop the recurring cleanings once summer rolls back around if you so desire. It’s time for PINCH to put in the legwork so you and all of your house guests can enjoy your clean home throughout the season. Now is the time to clean out the refrigerator, oven, ceiling fans, scrub the baseboards and downsize anything that’s accumulated over the summer. Leave the cleaning to the PINCH professionals, there’s  plenty of other things for you to do to get your home ready for fall . . . like baking and decor!

Step 2 - Focus on the exterior — You can rest assured that PINCH will handle the interior cleaning, so you can turn your attention to the exterior. It’s important to take a few extra steps now to ensure your home is ready for a few cold months ahead. Be sure to clean your gutters — you’ll want to remove all of the leaves and other debris that has accumulated so rainwater can flow properly away from your home. You’ll also want to schedule a pressure washer if you haven’t done so in a while. And be sure to clean and store any outdoor furniture that can’t withstand the colder weather. Go ahead and treat any upholstery stains before storing your outdoor furniture — the longer the stains remain on the upholstery the harder they are to get off. 

Step 3 - Safety First — You want to be sure your home is safe and in tip top shape for the season. Be sure to test, clean and replace the batteries in those smoke detectors. With all of the candles being lit and dinners being cooked, you can never be too cautious. Next, make sure you get your chimney cleaned — everyone loves to sip hot cocoa and read a good book by the fire, but before you do, have your chimney checked for critters or other debris that could cause a safety hazard.

Okay, so there you have it! In just 3 easy steps you’re on your way to getting your home ‘Fall’ ready. Through the PINCH App you can schedule a cleaning, select your cleaner and include important add-ons to be sure your home is ready for the season. Happy cleaning!
