Holiday Cleaning For Your Home

The weather has been absolutely gorgeous, but don't let it fool you - the holidays are just around the corner and will be here before you know it! There is so much going on that sometimes you can feel like you may be in over your head. You are expecting guests and with that comes planning to make sure that it all comes out right.  
You want to make a successful plan to make sure that all are happy, but you need to make sure that you do not leave out one very important person who needs to be happy too.  That’s right!  I am talking about you!
With some careful planning and a little help from your local, friendly, professional cleaning service, you can make holiday cleaning a snap.  Simplify your holiday cleaning schedule with our easy tips!
  •        Think Ahead: Begin cleaning before the seasonal rush happens and you get too busy. One option is to break down tasks into manageable sections. It also gives you more time to accomplish long-term projects, like polishing silverware and rearranging furniture.
  •         Make a List:  Before you get started, go through your home room by room and make a list of your cleaning priorities.  You can have your cleaning company tackle the list all in one go, or you can spread the cleaning chores out over a few weeks.  Make a separate list for items that you need to sort out, de-clutter, or organize.

  • ·       Finding Time: Your cleaning company will take care of your major cleaning needs, but you might still have to tackle some smaller jobs. Set aside a fixed time each day, like right before bed or after your morning coffee, to get the items on your list done. You’ll be amazed at how much you can check off your list in about 15 minutes; or, if you have a little more time, in under an hour.

  •        Simplify Your Clutter: Instead of cleaning around everything, just get rid of it. Give yourself ample time per room to decide what to keep and what you could do without, then organize what’s left. To stay in a pattern of keeping your rooms this way, start to implement helpful weekly, monthly and seasonal schedules.
