Holiday Speed Cleaning Tips

Houses seem almost magic during the month of December, with seasonal music, warm blankets, and family surrounding you – being at home is the most enjoyable thing to do. When you’re cozying up on your couch with a hot tea and a good book, we want cleaning to be the last thing on your mind. While The Clean Sweep Housekeeping Agency offers many services to assist you during this wonderfully busy season – but here are some tips our housekeepers recommend in between housekeeper visits.

  • Prioritize

Start with the most difficult room and make your way back to the easiest room. Additionally, set at timer and stick to it – it will make your cleaning more efficient and give you more time to do other things

  • Final Touches

Always save sweeping, vacuuming, and mopping until the very end. It will make your house smell, appear, and feel clean.

  • Good First Impression

This is a season full of guests, so in order to make sure that your guests are seeing a clean house – stand in your front door and identify cluttered or problem areas and tackle those first

  • Bathrooms

Our housekeepers cannot emphasize keeping a clean bathroom when hosting an event. Start with the mirrors, wipe down the counters, and scrub the toilet clean

  • Clutter-Free (almost)

The holiday season is one of the busiest seasons of the year and there is essentially no time for de-cluttering. Therefore, find a quick place to store all unwanted clutter and pick a date to go through and clean it out once the holiday rush is over

  • After Party Cleaning

Our housekeeper understand how daunting after party clean up can be. Especially after dinner – dishes, pots, and pans seem to form mountains in sinks. One highly recommended tip is to purchase a stainless steel sponge (a sponge made of stainless steel, not made for) and let dishes soak for about 10 minutes before scrubbing them down with your sponge. This trick is guaranteed to save you time and stress
