Pumpkin spice season is officially upon us! It’s time to break out the sweatpants and embrace the upcoming holiday season. But first, there’s some much-needed housekeeping that needs to take place. Below are five tips on how to prepare your apartment for fall.
Keep The Heater In Check
Fall usually means cooler weather. In Cleveland, it’s inevitable. The first step in successfully preparing your apartment for fall is to check your heater for proper functioning. On a cool evening, set the thermostat to your desired temperature and let the heater run for 15 minutes. You might smell dust in the process, so be sure to change the filter (applicable to furnaces only). If your heater is not raising the temperature in your apartment, check your thermostat settings or submit a maintenance request immediately.
Do A Deep Clean
We know, it sounds daunting. Part of embracing a new season means ridding your home of old, unwanted smells. Prepare your apartment for fall by doing a deep, thorough clean. Scrub all hard surfaces with a sponge and anti-bacterial cleanser. As an added precaution, top off the clean surfaces with a quick mist of sanitizing spray to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 and other harmful viruses that could be lying dormant in your space. Next, use a durable vacuum with HEPA filtration to suck up all the grit from the floors and carpets. We encourage residents to use a bagged vacuum as it is more hypoallergenic. Don’t forget to finish up with a good mopping!
Foliage, Foliage, Foliage
Fall means pretty colors. Why not spruce up your apartment with them? Decorative fall foliage can be found at just about any hobby store. If you’re like us and love the thrill of a sweet deal, Tuesday Morning’s fall sales are absolutely irresistible.

Pumpkin spice season and football season go hand-in-hand. That’s just the American way. Cleveland Browns décor can be purchased just about anywhere in the area, though online shopping offers the convenience and social distancing many folks now crave. Make sure your TV set and living room furniture are tailored for ultimate comfort. Part of doing so involves paying close attention to the feng shuei. What is the dominant position of the room? What angles offer easy maneuvering in and out of the room? You’d be surprised how much it actually matters. Physical discomfort can easily usurp those feelings of greatness when the Browns win.
Although preparing your apartment for fall can seem like a chore at times, subtle change doesn’t always have to be a bad thing. In fact, revolutionizing your apartment is a necessary measure in order to live your best life.
