5 Tips to Clean Up Your Home Before the Holidays, Florissant, Missouri

If you’re having guests over for the holidays or simply want to have a fun and memorable celebration with your family, you’ll want to clean up your home beforehand. While window and carpet cleaning are good ideas, there are other areas that require your attention as well. Here are some tips to help you get the preliminary cleaning out of the way so you can do more in-depth maintenance later.

How to Tidy Your Home

1. Start Small

Starting well in advance of the holiday, assign yourself just one small project at a time. Clearing out one drawer or shelf, organizing a closet, or cleaning a major fixture are fantastic options. If you set a goal to do at least one of these projects each day, you’ll make lots of progress without getting overwhelmed.

2. One Room at a Time

Carpet CleaningBefore you start, look at your home’s layout and decide which rooms are the highest priority. Your living room, kitchen, or guest room are good choices, since these are areas where your guests will spend time. Finish one room completely before moving to another.

3. Organize

Cleaning is most effective when you’re organizing at the same time. This means putting objects away in specific places where you can easily find them again. This makes them easier to clean up next time—and if you aren’t doing this, all you’re really accomplishing is moving the mess from one place to another.

4. Use High-Visibility Storage

Clear plastic tubs and totes are one of the most convenient options for storage. This way, you’ll still be able to tell at a glance what items and materials you have on hand—and if you need something, you won’t have to root through numerous boxes and make a new mess every time.

5. Be Thorough

In each room you clean, make sure you’re addressing every detail, including vacuuming and cleaning under the furniture. This way, you’ll be fully prepared for professional services like carpet cleaning.
