With the festive season in full swing and guests on the way, it’s time for Holiday House Cleaning 101.

Our Holiday House Cleaning 101 Guide makes this time of year smoother.

Scrub Down Your Entryway

One of the first things guests will see when entering your home is your entryway, so to make a good impression, focus on areas you haven’t cleaned in a while. Wipe down your front door to remove any dust or cobwebs, dust your furniture, and shake out your welcome mat. Doing all these little things will guarantee the first impression you want.

Focus on The Kitchen And Dining Areas

With the Holidays, food is often at the center point of all gatherings, which means people are in the kitchen and dining areas most of the time. Give these areas the most cleaning attention possible, especially if you’re short on time to prepare for guests. Don’t forget to dust your light fixtures or ceiling fans, and ensure your kitchen is clean and smelling fresh.

Deep Clean the Bathrooms

You get a certain feeling when you walk into a bathroom that hasn’t been cleaned in a while – it’s not a comfortable feeling. You never want your guests to feel that way. Deep clean all your bathrooms the day before to help ensure they’re clean. You need to take care of washing the tub or shower, wiping down the sinks, scrubbing the toilets, and sweeping/mopping the floors to get your bathroom guest-ready.

Holiday House Cleaning 101: Planning & Aesthetics

Prepare Your Guest Bedroom Ahead Of Time.

In the days leading up to your guests’ arrival, wash the bedding to remove any dust accumulated since the last use, and thoroughly clean the whole room. Make the area spotless, cozy, and inviting. This will let your guests know you’re happy to have them over.

Plan Ahead Of Time

To help reduce stress, plan out who you’re inviting, what you’ll be serving, and if anyone will bring food. Planning like this will help you stay focused on your to-do list and save any last-minute scurrying around to get unanticipated activities taken care of. The benefit of doing this is you’ll be able to relax and enjoy the Holiday Season with your guests.

Design Your Holiday Table

When designing your Holiday Table, remove everything and scrub it down. Afterward, wash your dishes and silverware beforehand, and set them off to the side. Once that’s done, figure out the centerpiece and the decorations you plan on adding to the table so you don’t have to worry about it later. You don’t have to go overboard with decorations. A clean table and silverware and an excellent colorful food spread often do the trick.
