If a house is not clean around Christmas, it is just not perfect and everything must be ideal for the most special time of the year. The holidays are a wonderful but stressful period for many of us, however this year we prepared a cleaning checklist for you to go through before Christmas.
There is magic in the air and we all just want to snuggle under the blanket with a cup of hot chocolate and watch one of our beloved Christmas movies.
Take a few things off your plate with these Christmas cleaning tips to get your house ready for the holidays.
From getting enough food to feed your family and friends to keep up with appointments and deadlines on time, to remembering to wash the bedsheets for the guests, preparing your apartment for Christmas isn’t always a relaxing ordeal.
Here is the Christmas Cleaning Checklist that will help many families prepare their homes for Christmas with time to spare and enjoy some of the traditions associated with those magical holidays.
Cleaning Tips Before Christmas
Here are the best tips and top ways to handle your holiday cleaning this year (and for the many Christmases to come).
Following this step-by-step holiday cleaning checklist, you’ll be able to turn your messy, soiled, dusty, and disorganized house into a clean Christmas fairytale and have time to spare.
Before you start, here is our most important tip for you:
Don’t postpone the cleaning until the 23rd of December or else it’ll be too late and you’ll be wondering how to manage everything on time.
Write down your cleaning plan
Start by preparing your cleaning schedule. For example, clean the kitchen first, followed by the bathroom, and so on. Keep in mind that your guests notice things that you don’t. Move things around to check if there is dust where you don’t see it or dirt underneath small furniture in the house. People often forget to clean the little mirror in the bathroom or just don’t notice the stained kitchen drawers. Keep that in mind and take action before it is too late.
Continue by moving everything away from a particular room. It is much easier to clean free space because you don’t have to work your way around or underneath unnecessary objects. You might also find items where they don’t belong and you need to put them back where they should be.
Time to remove dust
Addressing the surface could be tedious but you will see it is worth it. Not to mention that it is much healthier to live in a dust-free house.
So clean every single flat surface.
Since you moved the objects that don’t belong there, you shouldn’t have much clutter to work with.
Remove dust from your TV, computer, tables, drawers, etc.
Carpets are one of the areas in the house that people often disregard. Cleaning your carpet with your vacuum cleaner is not enough to thoroughly get rid of all the germs that live inside of it. As a professional carpet cleaning company, we recommend deep clean carpets at least 2 times a year.
This wonderful item transforms a house from a cold room to a cozy place but they are often exposed to a lot of foot traffic. Additionally, they take on the most damage from the residents of the house such as spills and stains.
So this year, let’s clean our carpets and get them ready for Christmas. Every carpet is different, so you need to make sure you know how to clean different carpet fabrics.
Vacuuming and mopping
Okay, it is time to do the oldy but goldy – vacuuming. Grab your vacuum cleaner and clean every room. Remember to use an upholstery attachment when you clean your couch or sofa with the vacuum cleaner. Remember the different fabrics – check out our article on suede sofa cleaning if you have suede upholstery in your house. Keep in mind that couches and sofa assemble a great amount of dust, dirt, and debris.
Then fill your cleaning bucket with water and detergent that is suitable for the surface you are cleaning, whether it is tile or parquet. After that, you just need to mop the floors of the house. Have some fun with it! Play a little music whilst doing this. Maybe a Christmas carol will be appropriate. Let’s bring the Santa spirit into our homes.
Before you start cleaning move everything away from a particular room. It is much easier to clean free space because you don’t have to work your way around or underneath unnecessary objects.
You might also find items where they don’t belong and you need to put them back where they should be.
