The temperature is dropping, the leaves are changing, and homeowners are gearing up for the holidays ahead

“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers!” — L.M. Montgomery 

October has finally settled upon Maryland. The temperature is dropping, the leaves are changing, and homeowners are gearing up for the holidays ahead. Discover how you can prepare your home for the season, and add the following chores to your October to-do list! 

Store Patio Furniture 

October is an excellent month to start storing your patio furniture in the shed or garage. You don’t have to store all of your patio furniture! If you have an outdoor fireplace or fire pit, you can enjoy the beauty of your patio all year round. Items such as umbrellas and patio cushions should be stored away so that they aren’t harmed by the elements. 

Prepare the Fireplace 

If you have a fireplace, now is a good time to prep it for the colder months ahead. Have it cleaned and inspected by professionals, so that it’s ready to use in time for the first frost. Consider decorating the mantel with festive touches such as gourds and candles!

Wash the Linens 

The days are getting shorter, and the nights are getting longer. Soon, it will seem like you’re spending all of your time in bed. During the month of October, take the time to wash all of your linens. Clean the mattress covers, duvet, throw blankets, and more to ensure that you’re cozy and clean this season. 

Move the Furniture 

You might love the location of your sofa, but it’s time to move it to make way for the vacuum. Don’t worry; you can move it back once the floor beneath is clean. Vacuum upholstered furniture, and remember to remove any cushions so that you can clean all of the areas. Before you clean, read the manufacturing label to ensure that you’re cleaning it correctly. 

Shampoo the Carpet 

Experts recommend having your carpet professionally cleaned once a year. If you haven’t done so already, schedule a cleaning for October!
