Raleigh’s Two Maids & A Mop has you covered, with a checklist of fall maintenance tasks. Below are some things that deserve attention around your home this fall.


Fall is a great time to defrost your fridge and get rid of contents that may be outdated or no longer used. Additionally, you can pull your fridge away from the wall to clean the coil elements, ridding them of dust and other particulates. Be sure to check the area under the fridge and drip pan for any mold or mildew Checkout these winter home tips from for more info.



As your furnace will be getting more use in the months ahead, consider getting it checked by a professional. Also, be sure to stock up on high-quality furnace filters to ensure that your furnace is running optimally. And lastly, these measures can also help scrape down your utility bill.

Laundry Room

Check your laundry appliances this fall to ensure that there is no buildup of harmful material. Front-loading washing machines are prone to mold buildup, so be sure to check them for any mold colonies. Also, the dryer vent and exhaust tube should be examined and cleaned to make sure that airflow is unrestricted.

Smoke Detectors

Change the batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and test them to make sure they run as they should. This can allow use of the fireplace and chimney for heat or pleasure.

Fireplace and Chimney

If you plan on using your fireplace and chimney, consider having it cleaned by a professional to remove deadly toxins and buildup. An annual chimney checkup is recommended for regular fireplace users. These tasks should be completed before the onset of winter to ensure that your home is in prime shape for the cold months ahead.
