Clean carpets can add sparkle and freshness to your entire home — but a dingy, stained, pet-hair-covered carpet can do just the opposite. Luckily, many products and techniques will work wonders, even on stained carpets — and you have several cleaning options that you can pursue.
If you look closely at your cleaning supplies, you’ll notice that many of them are printed with an expiration date. But if we’re being honest, most of us likely don’t check this fine print. The next time you’re embarking on a big cleaning spree, check the expiration date or manufacture date on that bottle of bleach, cleaning spray and dishwashing liquid you’ve had stashed in the cabinet for years. If you find they are past their prime, follow the steps below to dispose of them safely.
If you plan to use the fireplace this fall and winter, make sure the chimney is clean and in good shape. (And make sure no squirrels or other critters have taken up residence inside!) A blockage in the chimney can cause a fire or other hazards and be an inconvenient mess. Get ahead of any smoke- or ash-related issues by giving the whole set-up a good cleaning.
