How to keep your house clean before, during and after Festive Period!

Wednesday, November 8th, 2023

Keeping your home clean during the festive period can be a bit challenging due to increased activities and gatherings, but with some planning and effort, you can maintain a tidy and welcoming space. Here are some tips to help you keep your home clean during the festive season:

  • Plan ahead and make a cleaning schedule by creating a checklist of cleaning tasks and allocate specific days or time slots to tackle them. This will help you stay organized and ensure you don’t get overwhelmed.
  • Declutter: Before the festivities begin, go through your belongings and declutter. Donate or discard items you no longer need. Reducing clutter will make cleaning and organizing easier.
  • Daily maintenance: Encourage family members and guests to clean up after themselves. Provide designated bins for recycling, trash, and dirty dishes to prevent clutter and make cleanup easier.
  • Deep cleaning: In the days leading up to the festive period, conduct a deep clean of your home. This may include tasks like vacuuming, dusting, mopping, and cleaning windows.
  • Kitchen cleanliness: Clean your kitchen thoroughly, especially if you’re hosting meals. Pay attention to appliances, countertops, and the sink area. Keep a supply of cleaning wipes or a dishwashing station for easy cleanup during cooking and after meals.
  • Use disposable items: Consider using disposable plates, utensils, and cups for larger gatherings to minimize the amount of dishwashing and reduce the burden on your kitchen.
  • Maintain high-traffic areas: Focus on cleaning and tidying up areas that receive the most foot traffic, such as the entryway, living room, and bathroom.
  • Seasonal decorations: Be mindful of where you place decorations. Avoid overcrowding your home with decorations that may collect dust and be difficult to clean around.
  • Manage pets: If you have pets, keep their fur and litter in check. Regularly vacuum and groom your pets to reduce shedding.
  • Delegate tasks: Enlist the help of family members or roommates to share the cleaning responsibilities. Everyone can contribute to maintaining a clean home.
  • Check for stains: Quickly address any spills or stains to prevent them from setting and becoming more challenging to remove.
  • Freshen up the air: Use air fresheners, scented candles, or natural alternatives like potpourri to keep your home smelling pleasant.
  • Pre-plan for post-festivities: Have a plan for cleaning up after the festivities are over. Set aside some time the day after to tackle any post-party mess and restore your home to its pre-festive state.
  • Professional cleaning: If time is limited, consider hiring professional cleaners for a thorough cleaning before or after the festivities. AG Cleaning Services is just one call away…
