Getting Ready For Christmas
If you’re going to be welcoming a lot of guests over the festive period, then bring your spring clean forward.
The holiday season is well and truly upon us now. For many people, that means welcoming guests into their homes, whether that’s for a casual festive get together, a big Christmas Day dinner or a spectacular New Year’s Eve bash. As a result, you’re going to want your home to look as clean and tidy as possible. So rather than leaving the spring cleaning until, well, the spring – why not take action now? In no time at all you can have your home looking spotless and ready for all kinds of gatherings.
Clear out the clutter
First of all, have a good de-clutter. With Christmas decorations going up, it’s easy for a room to feel crowded and oppressive. So before you deck the halls, sort out any bits and pieces you don’t want or need and make two piles – one for charity, and one for the rubbish. Clutter harbours dust, so you’ll be really surprised at how clean and fresh your home looks and feels after you’ve had a good clear out.
Have your upholstery cleaned professionally
If your upholstery is looking a bit tired and dingy, then consider calling in the experts. Professional upholstery cleaners have all the expertise and resources to quickly have your upholstery and soft furnishings look as good as new. No two upholstered pieces are the same, which is why they take a tailored approach and take the time to really examine your soft furnishings. As they’ll carry out the cleaning in your home, you’ll be able to keep an eye on their progress and see the whole transformation from beginning to end!
Freshen up the guest rooms
If you’re having people over to stay, then make sure that the guest rooms are clean. The day before they’re due to arrive, strip the beds and while the sheets are in the wash, give the room a good vacuum and dust. Then make the beds up so that they’re fresh (everyone loves the feeling of clean sheets!). Make sure that you have some clean towels to leave in their room too, as well as some extra blankets. You’ll be the most popular host in town!
Get ready for dinner
Last but not least is your kitchen. If you’re going to be serving up dinner on Christmas Day, then you’ll want it to look as good as possible for your guests. Clean your work surfaces, invest in a new tablecloth, and make sure that your best crockery and cutlery are washed and dried with plenty of time to spare. Sweep the floors to get rid of any stray cooking ingredients too, and light some candles for a festive scent.
Get rid of pest problems
The more the merrier at Christmastime – but that doesn’t extend to pests! That’s why it’s a good idea to clear any nests that pests may have made over the summer now. It’s always better to call in some professional pest control experts, as removing these nests can be dangerous if you don’t know what you’re doing. The process is really quick and simple, and you’ll be left with a pristine pest free home for Christmas.
Here’s to a sparkling clean Christmas!
There’s no reason why you can’t give your home a decent spring clean in 2018 too, but getting some of those chores completed before Christmas will have you feeling far less stressed about the festive season. Once you’ve cleaned and tidied, you can put your feet up and concentrate on what really matters – creating amazing memories with your friends and family. It’s the most wonderful time of the year, so why not give your home the winter clean it needs to shine?
