In honor of Memorial Day, we will share some house cleaning tips that cater to an afterparty cleanup. The weather has been warming up in Maryland, which means that people will be hosting BBQs and gatherings. When you’re a host, throwing a small get-together is as much fun as it is a lot of work. Misty Clean specializes in event cleanup services if you’re ever too tired after an event. In the meantime, let’s look at some house cleaning tips that can make cleaning up after a party more efficient.
Open the Windows
If it’s 90 degrees and your guests are drinking alcoholic beverages, it’s safe to say that you will need to open the windows to let some air in and get rid of the afterparty smells. Plus, when you let in natural light, it’s much easier to see the surfaces that you’re cleaning.
Gather Up and Get Rid of The Empty Bottles
After a gathering, there’s always going to be empty or half-full glasses and bottles sitting around the room. Pour out any unfinished beverages, and discard any unfinished food as well. When you let air circulate, coupled with getting rid of drinks and food, the room will slowly begin to become fresher again.
Load the Dishwasher or Start Letting Dishes Soak in the Sink
If you own a dishwasher, place as much of your dinnerware in there as you can. Honestly, if you’re not hosting a fancy event, utilizing paper products will be less stressful. If you pulled out the fine china, make sure to check each room before starting the dishwasher or scrubbing dishes. You’ll be surprised at where people can leave items.
Clean Rooms One by One
You’ll overwhelm yourself if you try to tackle cleaning multiple rooms at once. You might find it helpful to start with the room furthest away from the kitchen and then work your way towards the kitchen. Clean each room one by one.
House Cleaning Tips by Room
- The Bathroom: Tackle cleaning the toilet first and use microfiber cleaning cloths to absorb a lot of dust. Let cleaning solutions soak on the sink and wherever else you think germs accumulated during your party.
- The Living Room: Get your polisher and duster, tackle each surface one by one, and work your way around the entire living room. Spritz down your curtains and clean your carpet if it has stains.
- The Kitchen: Start by scrubbing the dishes that you let soak or drying off the dishes that you left in the dishwasher. Spray the oven with oven cleaner if you cooked for guests, and let the oven work its magic as you wipe down surfaces. Leave the hardwood floors last!
