The last thing you want your holiday guests to feel is like they need to pick up a spray bottle and rag and start cleaning, so how can you keep your home warm, inviting, and tidy during this hectic holiday season?
Start Before You Decorate
Before you even take up the tree from the basement or drive to the tree lot, make sure that you clean up the existing rooms in your home. Do you use minimal Christmas décor or haul up box after box of it? Make sure that you remove excess décor or Thanksgiving décor from every room in your home that will be having festive holiday décor. This can help bust some clutter before the holiday season kicks into full gear.
Work in Shifts
Don’t wait until the night before Christmas to start your cleaning—start now! By breaking down all of your tasks into a to-do list, you will be able to get a head start and spend the night before you host guests enjoying your family instead of scrubbing the bathtub drain.
Put It Away!
When you get busy and involved in the holiday season, it’s easy to forsake a tidy home in favor of setting down things wherever it’s convenient. Unfortunately for your once-tidy home, this is a quick way to have a messy home in no time flat! Take extra time to put away everything you take out, even cookie cutters or wrapping paper, to keep your home feeling clean.
Set a Timer
Maintaining your work is an important part of keeping a tidy home, so set a timer every day for 10 or 15 minutes and use that time to pick up, clean, and prepare for whatever holiday season activities you’ll be doing in the next day or two.
Once you have a tidy home, with tasteful holiday season décor, enjoy your home! The more time you spend enjoying the holiday season, the more you’ll want your home to look like this all the time. Hiring a professional cleaning service is a great way to keep your home tidy during months that you simply don’t have the time.
