Deep Clean Your Home this Fall with Wet and Forget
Spring doesn’t have a stranglehold on seasonal cleaning. In fact, a deep fall cleaning can prep your home inside and out for the oncoming winter months.
Whether it’s algae and mold stains or spiders and odors, Wet & Forget can make sure your home is spotless and smelling great as temperatures drop and leaves begin to fall. Even better, with our products and favorite fall cleaning tips at your side, you can tackle it all in minutes.
Outdoor Fall Cleaning Tips for Your Sidewalk, Patio, and More
It happens every year once the snow starts to clear. You find your outdoor surfaces spent the winter months collecting unsightly organic stains.
With Wet & Forget Outdoor products, you can convert rain and snow into your ally in your fight against mold, mildew, and algae stains. And each outdoor product is safe to use on virtually any outdoor surface.
Wet & Forget works with wind and rain to gently lift stains over time. In many cases, and depending on your local weather and climate, a single application is enough to clean up the green and black stains and keep them clean for up to a year.
Take your walking pathways, for instance. Ugly green and black stains on your driveway or sidewalk won’t just scare away trick-or-treaters; they can also create slipping hazards for those brave enough to venture to your front door.
To keep those walkways safe, you need an effective cleaner like the Wet & Forget Concentrate. While safety is always paramount, a stain-free sidewalk will keep attention rightfully focused on your Halloween decorations.
Application is effortless. Simply pick a day before it gets too cold or rainy — Wet & Forget Outdoor Concentrate works best in temperatures above 32 degrees Fahrenheit and on dry outdoor surfaces— and thoroughly saturate any green or black organic stain. We recommend using a garden pump sprayer to apply the Wet & Forget Concentrate. This allows for a quick and precise application.
For larger surfaces, such as driveways, decks, patios, and roofs, try Wet & Forget Xtreme Reach™ Hose End.
A single bottle can cover up to 2,000 square feet, and its unique sprayer can reach distances of up to 30 feet. So, no need to scramble up unsteady ladders or take precarious steps onto your roof.
It works best on days when temperatures don’t fall below 55 degrees Fahrenheit and without wind or rain. Then screw your garden hose into the Xtreme Reach™ Nozzle and begin spraying.
Regardless of which Wet & Forget Outdoor product you use, there’s no need to scrub, rinse, or power wash.
Keep Your Fall Free of Arachnids With Spider Control Spray
Fall is a busy time for spiders — with an emphasis here on busy. Everyone’s least favorite eight-legged pests find the changing leaves and crisp air just as romantic as anyone.
That’s right; for many spider species, autumn is their mating season. That means you’ll likely see them in abundance in and around your house.
Instead of letting spiders enter your home’s deepest, darkest places, use Miss Muffet’s Revenge to create a barrier around basements, crawlspaces, and other spider-friendly spots.
To repel these invaders, apply a 12-inch band around your home’s outdoor perimeter on a dry day without wind or rain. Come back the next day and sweep up any lingering cobwebs.
You can spray inside your home for added protection. This time, spray a four-inch band along the interior of your home wherever you notice a recurring spider presence.
The sprayer can reach distances of up to 10 feet — perfect for those difficult-to-reach ceiling corners. A single application can keep spiders away for up to a year.
For active spider control situations, spray any cobwebs you come across. Then come back and sweep them away the following day.
Eliminate Odors Before Winter Rolls In
As temperatures begin to fall, we end up spending more time indoors. However, the more time you spend inside, the more likely you will experience some unwelcome guests.
No, we’re not talking about visiting in-laws or that one cousin who always shows up but never makes eye contact. We’re talking about mold, mildew, and their associated odors.
Wet & Forget Indoor aids fall cleaning by keeping uninvited smells away with its disinfecting and deodorizing powers.
Wet & Forget Indoor kills 99.9% of bacteria and viruses* on hard, non-porous surfaces. It also inhibits the growth of mold and mildew and their resulting stench.
You can use it on many indoor surfaces, from countertops and cabinets and fixtures to upholstery and hampers. Because it’s bleach-free, it also lacks irritating fumes.
Its deodorizing power can benefit basements, closets, beneath sinks, and even pet bedding.
Application, again, is easy. To disinfect or inhibit mold and mildew growth, spray hard, non-porous surfaces so they remain visibly wet for at least 10 minutes.
Repeat every seven days to keep mold and mildew at bay.
To sanitize soft surfaces, hold the bottle six to eight inches from the surfaces and spray until the fabric is wet. Ensure the fabric remains visibly wet for at least five minutes and allow to air dry.
*As a disinfectant, Wet & Forget® Indoor Mold+ Mildew Disinfectant Cleaner kills: Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Salmonella enterica, Serratia marcescens, *Human Coronavirus,*lnfluenza Virus Type A/ Hong Kong, *SARS Associated Coronavirus cause of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome, *SARS-Related Coronavirus 2 SARS-CoV-2 cause of COVID-19, *Vaccinia (Pox Virus), *Norwalk Virus (Norovirus), *Rotavirus.”
Deep Clean Your Shower, Sink, and Washing Machine
Our list of fall cleaning tips wouldn’t be complete without mentioning the areas often most desperate in need of cleaning: bathrooms. Built-up stains caused by soap scum and shower grime can make us feel dirtier after using the things supposedly cleaning us.
So, don’t let your shower, bath, or sink succumb to soap scum. Instead, use Wet & Forget Shower — available in vanilla scent and fresh scent — to rid your bathroom of grime.
Wet & Forget Shower is a weekly shower spray that contains no bleach or ammonia. It’s safe to apply on almost every shower, tub, or sink surface except natural marble.
That means you can use it on shower curtains, bath mats, and even inside your washing machine.
To apply, spray down surfaces after the last shower of the day. Then, rinse surfaces before the first shower the next day.
(For non-shower uses, spray and rinse immediately.)
Repeat the process every week to keep your shower clean and smelling great. If you’re starting from an especially dirty starting point, repeat daily until clean, then resume a once-a-week application rhythm.
