Prepping for the holidays
Now is the perfect time for deep cleaning your home. The holidays are here, and soon the houseguest will start arriving. It is very important that you take some time to prepare your for the hustle and clutter of the holidays. Many of your guest will be family and close friends bearing coats, scarves and overshoes. You can expect that the closets and pantry are going to be in high demand, and some visitors will feel welcome enough to hang their own coats in the foyer closet. The question is; have you been using your closets for a catchall for clutter?
Deep cleaning the closets
If that is the case, you should consider a deep cleaning for your closets and storage areas as you head into the holiday season. Are your closets jammed packed with no room for guest coats and jackets? Are bedroom and guest room closets overrun with shoeboxes? Are your storage shelves overflowing with junk mail, papers, and miscellaneous clutter? Reorganizing every shelving unit in your home office or living room can provide additional space for you to display all your holiday decorations. Weeding out all the summer season clothing can make your closets ready for all your winter gear. How about that pantry? An organized pantry will not only save you time, it will save you money. There will be no need to buy a third can of evaporated milk if you are easily able to find the first two.
The closets are a hidden necessity, but even before you break out all your decorations, you should consider a deep clean of your home. Deep cleaning now will save time when you are cleaning up before guests arrive. If your home has been deep cleaned, you will only need to spot clean to keep your home looking great throughout the holiday season. The time is running short because you want to have your home deep cleaned a couple weeks before your first big holiday event. This will give you plenty of time to plan and to decorate. More importantly, you will avoid a marathon cleaning session lasting way past midnight, scrubbing toilets and floors the night before your guests arrive.
Kitchen and pantry
Food and holidays go together like a horse and carriage. Cooking is an integral part of the holiday season. If you are hosting Thanksgiving dinner, it is crucial that your kitchen is ready. This is the perfect time to get rid of old or expired items. Make a complete list of staples such as flour, sugar, yeast, and spices. The re-organization will help you determine exactly what you need to purchase. There is a good chance there will be a guest cook in your kitchen at some point, so make sure your pantry is organized and easy for anyone to find ingredients. Remember, cleaning is also organizing. Call a professional housecleaning service to help you get your home ready for the holidays. You will probably end up creating more space, so that next year, you can find all the holiday decorations.
