Tips for Making Your Home Sparkling Clean for the Christmas Holidays

With the Christmas holidays fast approaching, you might be starting to worry about the state of your home. There’s nothing worse than hosting guests when you’re stressed about a messy house.

Cleaning the house may seem daunting because it’s often hard to decide where to start, but with the right help and mindset, we can guarantee that you will get it done just in time for the Christmas festivities! To begin with, try not to think of cleaning as one huge task. By dividing it into segments it automatically becomes less intimidating and more manageable.

Here are some tips for readying your home for Christmas:

Make sure you have enough cleaning supplies

Before you begin your Christmas deep clean, make sure you have enough cleaning supplies to complete your tasks. Here is a good list of starters:

  • dust cloth and lint removers
  • mop
  • spray and cotton rags
  • disposable wipes
  • garbage bags
  • baskets/boxes for sorting
  • Upholstery cleaner
  • toilet cleaner
  • stain removers

Double down on the main areas

Decide which areas will be the main entertainment areas and clean those first. The living room is an obvious priority zone so it’s a good idea to start there. A hot tip of ours is to declutter before you commence your clean. This is because it’s often trickier to clean where there are too many things strewn about. For a deeper clean of furniture and upholstery, use Britex Deep Cleaners with the upholstery wand attachment.

Another entertaining hot spot is the kitchen. It should no doubt be clean and safe for food preparation. We suggest that you allocate a separate day to clean the kitchen so you can make sure everything is covered.

  • Clean and wipe down grates, stove tops and countertops and eliminate stubborn stains with the help of our Britex Spot n Stain.
  • Clear out the refrigerator. Throw out old produce that you won’t be using anymore so there’s space for food during the festivities.
  • Wipe and shine the kitchen sink.
  • Clean the kitchen cabinets.
  • Polish your kitchenware and other decorations in the kitchen.

Don’t forget your carpet

Carpets are often overlooked, but they still require attention! On a regular day, your carpet already experiences a lot of footfall, so can you imagine how much more this will be when your guests finally arrive to walk all over it?  Regular sweeping and vacuuming will not guarantee a thorough clean. For a deeper clean, hire Britex Deep Cleaners from your local hiring stores  andtackle all those nasty carpet pests that fester deep within your carpet.
