september house cleaning checklist

Some housecleaning and home maintenance tasks need to be done monthly. Others seasonally, and still others once a year.

The problem is, we don't always get around to these tasks. 

A better plan: create a monthly house-cleaning and home maintenance checklist that spreads tasks over 12 months.

Here's the September house cleaning checklist that works best for me.

1.    Just ducty:

Clean heat ducts and registers. Replace air filters. 

2.    An outside job:

Hire someone to clean your roof's gutters and downspouts, and to complete any other maintenance or repair chores you can't do yourself to get your home ready for winter.

3.    Moving inside:

Now is the time for fall patio furniture cleaning, and then to bring it inside and store it for the winter.

Make sure your plants are ready for the change of seasons with these 10 fall gardening tips.

4.    Fire starter:

Order firewood. Stack it off the ground on firewood racks or on concrete blocks to increase air flow so that it dries appropriately. Stack it away from the house to prevent pest infestation.

5.     And just in case things get out of hand...

Check your fire extinguisher. If needed, schedule a fire extinguisher service call. Review fire safety guidelines.

6.    Chim, chim, cheree...

Line up chimney sweep cleaning services now, before they’re all booked till April. Do the rest of the fireplace maintenance yourself.

7.    Bedtime (again!)

Clean all bed linens, including comforters, duvets, bed skirts, pillows, etc. Yep, canopies, too!

8.    On the count of three:

Turn that mattress!

9.    Down the drain:

It's time for drain cleaning. Call a cleaning service now to set this up. Remind the crew to clean the traps, too. Make sure you're doing your part by regularly maintaining your garbage disposal.

10.    Clean House Plants: Your Final September House Cleaning Checklist Chore

Equip your child with an electrostatic cloth and give him the task of cleaning your houseplants. The leaves wipe clean just like magic. It’s actually a gratifying job for grown-ups, too!
