House cleaning tips are always helpful. However, it’s not uncommon for homeowners to put in extra work before an event, particularly a holiday celebration. Homeowners, after all, want their guests to marvel in their immaculate homes. Therefore, a homeowner always strives (or should) to ensure that cleaning tasks are less overwhelming before holiday events. One way to do that is to ensure that all of your Independence Day festivities stay outdoors. Thus, the kids will be able to roam free without inadvertently cluttering up the home.
Also, you can keep all of the trash and food smells outside. In addition, hosing down a patio is less daunting than deep cleaning your home. Nonetheless, whether your festivities are indoors, outdoors, or both, you will find these house cleaning tips helpful.
Make Room for House Cleaning and Getting Dressed
During the holidays, people like to look extra jazzy. As a result, you may take longer getting ready than usual. Plus, if you have a family, you have to get them ready as well. Under no circumstances do you want to tackle cleaning the entire house the day of a 4th of July BBQ. Plus, you have to factor in cooking. If there is anything you can do in advance, we highly recommend that you do so.
Do a Quick Five-Minute Pickup
An hour or so before the fun and festivities begin, you may want to go in each room and do a last-minute pickup of clutter or trash. Of course, your guest bathroom should be clean and as bacteria-free as possible, but it’s not unusual for guests to take peeks at other rooms, especially if a door is open. Also, look for messes in stand-out places such as entryways and hallways.
Clean the Kitchen as You Cook
You can make your life convenient by cooking on the grill solely. However, if you’re preparing any salads or side dishes in your kitchen, you should clean up the food debris as you go. It will save you time and a lot of frustration.
Assess Your Outdoor Living Space
Clean the grill and sweep and hose down the patio or porch. If there are cobwebs anywhere or visible dirt, you’ll want to assess that. To keep them germ and dust-free, you should also clean your exterior windows, light fixtures, and front and back doors.
Empty the Trash and Make the Room Smell Pleasant
You want your home to smell fresh and inviting before guests come to your home. Empty the trash, especially if there is foul-smelling food residue in there. You can also light candles to bring a lovely scent into your home. Independence Day-themed candles exist, and you can use them to decorate. Also, be sure to hire Misty Clean next year before your event to benefit from a one-time cleaning service.
