Get your home ready for the festive season with Christmas cleaning tips from Butterworth Cleaning Services
You should be able to relax and enjoy Christmas, but sometimes that isn’t so straightforward when you’ve got kids and relatives to entertain. We’ve put together some useful tips to help you stay on top of things while enjoying the celebrations!
Avoid a backlog of tidying
If you have children you’ll be all too aware of how much mess they can create when they’re not at school during the day. If you stay on top of this as it occurs- putting used mugs in the dishwasher and tidying toys and other items away after they are used- you can avoid having to do a massive cleanup operation just before other relatives come over to visit!
Try to be as efficient as possible
Focus your attention on areas of your house that visitors are likely to see. Start by making a good impression with the entrance to your home, taking care to ensure that dirt hasn’t been dragged in from outside and that shoes are properly tidied away. Nobody wants to be blinded by bright lights at Christmas, and lamps or candles will go great with your decorations. You can take advantage of this soft lighting and use it to draw attention to certain areas and away from others.
Make sure you have plenty of supplies
It’s not really possible to have too much food at Christmas- and as the weather can sometimes catch you by surprise, or you suddenly realise you have more family members than you remembered- being stocked up on supplies can be a life-saver.
Use scents to add to the festive atmosphere
This might not be for everyone, but calming Wintery scents like cinnamon, cloves or potpourri can really add to the mood you are trying to create at Christmas, even if we can’t guarantee they’ll keep your children completely harmonious. Scented candles are all over the place during Christmas, but a cheaper option is a jar of water with essential oils on the windowsill which will evaporate and infuse your home with festive cheer.
Get a professional in to help with the cleaning!
If you are entertaining over Christmas, now is a great time to get on top of the maintenance of carpets and upholstery in your home. Having these items professionally cleaned at least once a year will greatly increase their lifespan and save you money because you won’t have to have them replaced at great expense earlier than expected.
