There’s no dampening this year’s Holiday season. But whether or not you are expecting guests
for Christmas, you will need to keep your home in pristine condition.
On top of buying presents and decorating your home, you will also need to spend time and
money making sure your home is spotless and clear of clutter.
Expect to have a lot on your plate this Holiday Season, but with these tips, you can keep your
stress levels to a minimum and enjoy the last weeks on your terms!
- Start decluttering
The first thing you will need to do is to store away any items you don’t need anymore. You will
be surprised by how the amount of extra space you can use for decorating. Start by clearing out
remnants of this year’s Halloween decorations on your front yard, porch, and living room. If you
are expecting guests this year, make sure to put things like books, trophies, and framed photos
in their proper places
- Do a bit of dusting
Routine dusting is essential to preventing the build-up of debris that are a hazard to people with
allergies. While microfiber cloths should work on most surfaces, you still need a vacuum cleaner
with a proper attachment or a dust mop should help clear out larger clumps of dust. Make sure
to wear a mask and safety goggles if you are sensitive to dust particles.
- Prep your bathroom
You can’t have a clean home for the Holidays if your bathroom hasn’t been cleaned up from top
to bottom. Use a tile cleaner and a heavy-duty brush to get rid of the mold that lies between the
tiles. You will also need to replace your shower curtain, window curtain, and bathroom rug with a
new one that captures the festive spirit. If you want to take bathroom preparation even further,
consider adding flowers and an air freshener. Don’t forget to clean the exhaust fan. Remove and
wipe down the cover and use your vacuum’s dusting brush to get rid of any debris behind the
- Keep the dining and kitchen areas nice and tidy
The Holidays aren’t complete without a traditional Christmas feast. But before you cook an
amazing meal to celebrate the festive season, you need to get a great deal of cleaning done in
your kitchen and dining area. Consider giving the oven a thorough cleaning and disinfecting
utensils, plates, and glassware. You will also need to wipe down the dinner table and wash the
table cloth using anti-bacterial soap.
- Get a cleaning kit ready
From spilled wine to mud tracks on the floor, you will never know the kind of emergency that will
happen after you have done your pre-Holiday spring cleaning. It helps if you have an arsenal of
cleaning tools such as microfiber cloths, mops, and natural disinfectants at the ready so you can
deal with surprise messes before they get worse.
Prepping your home for the Holidays can be time-consuming, especially if you have other
important schedules lined up. In this case, you should reach out to a reliable cleaning company
to help freshen up your home in time for the festive season.
