Are you looking forward to entertaining friends and family members at your home this holiday season? Perhaps you are hosting a fun and casual White Elephant pre-Christmas party. Or, you might be hosting an elegant New Year's Eve event. No matter the type of party you will host, it is more than likely that you are already making plans to get your house sparkly clean. From arranging for upholstery and carpet cleaning to hiring professionals to do a last-minute cleanup job, here are some ideas that might help you.
Make A List - Don't the holidays just invite making lists? You probably have a shopping list for things you'll serve at your Thanksgiving dinner, a list of presents you want to give on Christmas day, and maybe even a list of clothing you need to buy for yourself. Think of adding another type of list to your plans. This list would include the cleaning jobs that need to be done before the holidays.
For example, is it time to clean out and restock your kitchen pantry? Do your bathrooms need to be thoroughly cleaned and do you need to buy new towels for those who might stay in your house to use? Do you have silver pieces and brass pieces that need to be polished? Write everything down and check it off your list when each chore has been done. If you have family members who can help, think of matching a chore to the individual who will do a good job at it.
Call On Professionals - As you did your thorough evaluation, you might have written down that the upholstery on your furniture and the carpets in specific rooms need to be cleaned professionally. Perhaps you have tried to do the job yourself, and yet the results weren't what you anticipated. By calling on professionals to clean the upholstery on your furniture and to clean your carpets, you can be sure that the job will be done by people who are trained and who have the experience to give your carpets and the upholstery new life.
In fact, don't be surprised if the upholstery and the carpets look as good as they did when they were brand new. It's true that you'll have to spend money on these cleaning services, but when you see the outcome of the hard work that is done by the professionals, you will more than likely realize that that was money very well spent.
