How Can You Get Your Home Ready for Fall?

The days of summer are slowly drawing to a close, and the autumn season is fast approaching. The first official day of fall is September 22. If you're preparing your home for the next few months, you're not alone.

Even though you're preparing for cooler weather and darker evenings, there are a few ways to get your home ready for fall that you may not be aware of.

In this article, we'll run through a checklist of tips that you should follow to ensure that you're fully prepared for the season's arrival.

Check the Furnace

If you live somewhere that gets hot in the summertime, then you may go the whole summer without turning on your furnace. So as fall approaches, it is never a bad idea to make sure your furnace is ready to work as the temperatures begin to drop. Call a local HVAC technician to ensure that your system is running smoothly and your filters are ready to go.

Remove Warm Clothing From Storage

One important part of fall preparation is switching out your closet. It is time to put away the shorts, tank tops, and swimsuits, and replace them with sweaters, jeans, and jackets. If they have been in storage for a long time, then you may want to wash and dry them before putting them in drawers or hanging them up in your closet.

In addition to washing your fall clothes, you may also want to wash and dry your summer clothes before putting them away. Make sure you use appropriate cardboard or plastic boxes to keep your clothes safe for the fall and winter.

Switch Out Your Bedding

When preparing for fall, you not only need to switch to warmer clothing, but also to warmer bedding. If you are too cold during the night, you may become uncomfortable or not be able to sleep at all - and nobody likes walking around the house at midnight looking for an extra blanket.

Put away the light sheets and duvets and break out the heavier fabrics. If you are looking for something warm and cozy, then check out our Washable Wool Comforter. This comforter is soft and insulating, but also works to regulate your body temperature and keep you comfortable all night long. 

Bring Out the Fall Decor

Nothing is more fun than decorating a house for a new season. Give your house a refresh by hanging up your fall decor. Switch out your summer color palette and add in fun fall colors such as burnt oranges, warm reds, and beautiful browns.

Make your space cozy by adding lots of candles, blankets, and wreaths around your home. Bring the outdoors inside by decorating with pumpkins, plants, and pine cones.

Prepare Your Entryway

With fall, comes a lot of rain, thunderstorms, and sometimes even a bit of snow. Get your entryway ready for muddy feet to come walking into your home. Buy mats to place both inside and outside of your front or garage doors. 

You may even want to invest in a shoe rack and have people remove their dirty shoes as they enter your home.

Clean the Fireplace

If you have a fireplace, then fall and winter is the perfect time to fire it up to create a cozy ambiance. It is essential to make sure your fireplace and chimney are nice and clean to prevent chimney fires.

Schedule a chimney cleaning to ensure everything is safe and sound before lighting up your fireplace. This is also a great time to start your firewood pile so you won't run out in the middle of a cold fall night.

Prepare Your Outdoor Furniture

You will want to prepare, or even bring inside, your outdoor furniture for the fall season. Bring in any cushions or fabrics that won't be able to withstand the wetter season. Many fabrics are susceptible to mold issues that will completely ruin your furniture. 

If you are in an area that gets a lot of snow, you might want to store your furniture in a garage or a shed for extra protection. Wind, rain, snow, and ice, are all hard on outdoor furnishings. 

Make Sure the Doors and Windows Are Sealed

This is also a good time to make any home improvements regarding your doors and windows. If you have any doors or windows that aren't sealed properly, you may let in cold air, which can make you uncomfortable and drive up your heating bills. Spaces in your doors and windows can also attract bugs and other creatures to come into your home. 

In addition to this, check for any insulation issues in your walls, attic, and crawlspace. If you notice any light coming through your insulation, then you'll want to take care of this before the temperatures begin to drop.

Complete Some Fall Lawn Care

It is important to prepare the outside of your home as well as the inside. If you have any delicate potted plants, then you may want to bring them inside of your home. Overnight frost has been known to kill the more sensitive types of plants.

During this time, you can also plant flowers that will be ready to bloom come spring. Some of these flowers include violas, peonies, irises, and foxgloves.
