The holidays are officially underway, and magic is in the air. Of course, there can be a bit of stress that comes with the season. Between the careful planning and shopping, ensuring your relatives’ itinerary is correct and that all your other holiday logistics are sorted through, finding the time to clean your home throughout can be an almost impossible task. A clean home is a healthy home, and, with the help of Steemer of South Florida, together we can make cleaning feel as straightforward as a sleigh ride down the slopes.
The best way to achieve a clean home is all about the preparation. Don’t scare yourself by overanalyzing the situation. First ask yourself these two questions:
- What are the main areas that need be cleaned?
- What do I need to clean them?
Next, round up the cleaning supplies that will be needed and be sure to have your room by room cleaning list on hand.
Start your cleaning with the area that gets the most attention, the floors. The first step is to sweep away all dirt and debris into a dustpan to ensure your floors are free from any loose particles. If you intend to mop, utilize the required solution for your floor type to ensure a proper clean. For carpets, they can be a bit trickier to fully clean without professional help. Vacuuming will reduce allergens and dirt buildup but doesn’t quite penetrate and destroy at a microbial level, so you may want to consider professional help for a thorough clean.
Additionally, be sure to wipe down the counters and all surfaces across the house. Of course, the first place that probably comes to mind is the kitchen, but don’t forget the bathrooms, tables, tv stands, and even wipe down the fridge! When the surfaces across your home are clean, your home’s interior doesn’t just look good, it feels good. Not only that, but the decrease in dust buildup will reduce the risk of allergy aggravation.
Now it wouldn’t feel like the holidays without the decorations! Most of us keep items boxed or packed away until this time of year and you can bet that dust will makes itself at home during the time away. Before stringing up any indoor lights or hanging those go-to ornaments, make sure they are all wiped down and dusted. They’ll look new and your nose will thank you.
