As the leaves begin to turn, it signals the end of a hot, adventurous summer and the beginning of a cooler, calm autumn season. While adventures look like a family vacation to the beach in the summer, the fall calls for more pumpkin carvings and football games. 

You’re probably going to be spending a lot more time in your home, sitting cozy in your favorite oversized sweatshirt on a comfy couch. 

So with more time in our homes, it’s only natural for your house to get a little dirtier in the coming months. When your home is dirty, you have options! 

You can call the friendly and effective Greenlife Professional Cleaning team. In last month’s blog, we talked extensively about the extent to which we make sure our own homes are clean. We take care of your home as if it were our own. 

If you have the time and energy to clean your home yourself in between professional cleanings, here are some over-the-counter and homemade cleaning solutions that could be beneficial to keeping your home clean.



Western North Carolina is the kind of place that makes you want to spend time outdoors. We are surrounded on every side by the tallest mountains on the East Coast. The rivers and creeks that crisscross through the valleys are perfect for fly fishing, kayaking, floating, and even whitewater rafting. 

There are historic and fun downtowns in Asheville, Hendersonville, Mars Hill, Weaverville, and every other town in the region. We have picturesque parks, miles of greenway trails, and some of the best art galleries in the country. Even when you’re at home, the weather is often perfect for sitting outside and soaking up the mountain. 

There is no shortage of reasons local residents want to spend as much time as possible exploring everything that makes western North Carolina great. However, before you get out-and-about, you have to make sure you take care of your home. 



Although the last 12-18 months have been challenging for everyone in western North Carolina, it has also proven just how resilient we are. The backbone of our economy is the niche small businesses that make up so much of the culture in downtown Asheville, West Asheville, South Asheville, and every neighborhood and small-town throughout Buncombe, Madison, Henderson, and Transylvania counties. 

On paper, those businesses shouldn't have made it, but residents rallied, and companies made innovative decisions to serve their customers even if they could not see them face to face. 

One aspect of the economy that never slowed down for our area is real estate. As people's careers shifted to working remotely, they had choices about where they could live. 

Many chose to call our area home. Growth has accelerated beyond what was already steady before the pandemic. Now there are more homeowners in our area than ever. 

Homeownership is incredibly rewarding, even though it is a lot of work. There are always nagging maintenance chores to perform when all you really want to do is get out and enjoy everything that drew you to the area. 

Home cleaning and maintenance go hand-in-hand. In this article, we will help show you how. 



If you aren’t living the minimalist lifestyle, you probably have some sort of clutter in your home. However, as the weather gets warmer, more homeowners are starting their spring cleaning

The reason to clean and declutter varies from feeling more comfortable without feeling your place is full of stuff, you need space for a new project, or there is something you can’t seem to find. 

Whatever the reason is, the benefits of decluttering and becoming organized result in feeling great and healthy in your home. Here are a few reasons why you should declutter and organize the space in your home. 



If there has ever been a summer people have looked forward to, it’s this year. Here in western North Carolina, we are not used to being stuck inside. The last year has been challenging for families in our area, but as pandemic numbers decline and restrictions are lifted, people will be venturing out more this summer than they have in the last 12-15 months. We may spend less time in our homes than ever. Whether your family is planning to travel far and wide or you are just going to get out and about in the area, it will be tempting to skip cleaning. However, germs and clutter do not take a summer vacation. We need to make sure that cleaning remains a priority this summer. Here is what you can do to help make sure your family remembers how important cleanliness and sanitation should be even during the warm months.
