Can you believe that Thanksgiving and Christmas are coming really soon? Doesn't it seem like the school year just started? As fast as that passed, that's how fast the holidays will be here. Part of your holiday planning might include having friends and family staying at your house during at least part of the holidays. Or, you might be planning to host a party at your house, maybe even on New Year's Day. If so, you are probably already getting a bit stressed about the fact that your house needs to be thoroughly cleaned. If that's the case, here are some ideas that might help you to plan in an organized way that will give you peace of mind.
What Needs To Be Done? Think of going from room to room to make an assessment of exactly what needs to be done, even before you begin your cleaning. Make notes of what you want to accomplish before the holidays. For example, this might be the perfect time for your kids to go through their belongings so that they can give things they don't use anymore to a charity organization. Write that down. Perhaps you have been wanting to go through drawers, closets, and other storage spaces to organize them. Write that down, too. Have you been wanting to polish silver and brass that has been neglected for several months? Make note of that as well.
Who Needs To Do It? You and your family members can probably do almost all of the cleaning, can't you? For example, even little kids can help to clean baseboards. Think of making assignments for who will dust, vacuum, and clean things like the bathrooms. If you have hard-to-reach windows, professionals will more than likely do that job for you safer and more efficiently than you can. What about the carpets and the upholstery? Consider getting professionals to do those jobs for you. Besides having the experience and the training that is needed to do a very thorough job on cleaning those items, the cleaning company will provide cleaners that will not harm your upholstery or your carpet. If you have pets, your furniture upholstery and your carpets might have urine stains that seem to be impossible to get rid of. Not to fear. The cleaning service will be able to eradicate those urine smells totally. Consider making arrangements for the carpet and upholstery cleaners to return to your house on a regular basis.
