House cleaning in the fall presents with some different challenges than other times
of the year. Savannah, Georgia, and the surrounding areas usually have a relatively
mild fall temperature without too much rain. However, for some folks, fall can be
terrible for allergies.
When home owners suffer from allergies in the fall, it’s usually for one of two
reasons: either ragweed is the culprit or mold spores. So, here are our hints for
cleaning your home in Savannah in the fall.
1. Get yourself some good mats for the front and back doors.
You might even want two mats for each door, one for scraping your shoe soles
outside and one for just inside the door. Consider getting commercial-grade mats
which tend to be better quality and last longer than ones from big box stores.
Mats are inexpensive, and they keep people from tracking water and dirt through
the house. The International Sanitary Supply Association (ISSA) estimates that
mats can remove as much as 80% of the dirt and water from shoes.
2. Make sure your vacuum cleaner has a HEPA filter.
HEPA stands for High-Efficiency Particulate Air and it will really help to remove
the very small particles that may otherwise be suspended in the air. Of course, you
need to clean the filter and/or change the filter regularly for it to be effective.
3. Keep your windows closed.
If you’re an allergy sufferer in Savannah, then keep your windows closed in the
fall. That’s when all that pollen and those mold spores are airborne. Ragweed
pollen can travel as much as 400 miles.
4. Get professionals to clean your house.
Any of that dirt or pollen or mold spores that drift into your house and settle on the
floor continue to circulate in your house if you don’t keep it ultra clean. So, if you
