Don’t let domestic cleaning stop you from enjoying yourself this Christmas. Put some work in early and book a professional carpet and upholstery clean from 4CityClean to ensure sure you make the most out of the holiday. Since carpet manufacturers recommend you do this at least once a year, just before the Christmas break is a great time to do it. Read on for this and other useful tips for the festive season.
Create an environment you can relax in
You may have tidied the house and decorated your Christmas tree, but for many of us, bacteria and allergens lying under the surface of carpets and upholstery can make it difficult to unwind. People who can’t find any relief from such allergies in the comfort of their own home often don’t realise that they’re sitting in the thing that’s causing their allergies in the first place! All sorts of foreign materials can be dragged into your home under foot or attached to clothes. This is often then transferred to your carpets and upholstery, and can become deeply ingrained into these materials very easily.
When this occurs, regular cleaning and vacuuming can only help so much. To deal with the problem you need the deep clean that only a professional company like 4CityClean can provide. We have spent a lot of time and money on our training and equipment, so it’s always money well spent when we clean your home!
Tidy as you go
If you have kids spending more time at home during the Christmas break, it’s always good to be prepared for the extra amount of housework this can create. Our advice is to stay on top of this by tidying as you go- put used mugs in the dishwasher and tidy toys and other items away after they are used, and you can avoid having to do a massive cleanup operation the day before the rest of the family are coming to visit!
Be strategic with your limited time
Focus your attention on areas of your home that visitors are likely to see. Start by making a good impression with the entrance to your home, making sure that mud isn’t dragged in from outside and shoes are tidied away. Nobody wants to be blinded by bright lights at Christmas, and lamps or candles will go great with your decorations. Take advantage of a minimalist approach to lighting and use it to draw attention to certain areas and away from others.
Get supplies stocked up and ready
It’s hard to predict the weather, and sometimes it’s even hard to predict how many family members are going to drop by. Remember to stock up on plenty of alcohol and other supplies. That way you can get them out at the drop of a hat in the event of a blizzard and get that smug feeling that comes with always being prepared.
This might not be for everyone, but calming 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 make your children completely well-behaved.
