There is nothing more exciting than spending the holidays surrounded by family and friends. If you are hosting the family gathering this year, you will probably have guests staying with you from out of town. The thought of how to keep the house cleaned during this time can be quite puzzling. Following a few easy tips will help you keep your home organized and clean this holiday season.
Organize a Holiday Cleaning Kit
The kit can be a basket filled with the supplies needed to keep each room cleaned. The basket should be organized with items needed to clean, wipe up spills, sanitize and deodorize your living space. You can keep one of these baskets in each bathroom as well as the kitchen. Be sure to have one in your hallway closet as well.
Daily Cleaning Routine
Clean your home as you would if the guests were not there. If you keep this routine up there will be less work for you to do when they leave. Hopefully, if your guests see you tidying up daily they will also offer their assistance with the tasks. Do not feel bad about allowing them to help; after all they are living there too for the time being.
Take Trash out Daily
Trash should be taken out every day, however, when there are guests in the home you definitely want to make sure it is being done. Now that you have more traffic in the home you do not know what is going in the trash, so it is a good idea to take it out to eliminate any odors.
Call in the Professionals
Time away from home means time for someone else to clean your house. Why not call in professional maids to do all the cleaning? If you and the guests will be out shopping for holiday sales, or just out for a few hours, you can call in a professional cleaning. Now, you can sit back and relax this holiday season knowing that it will be simple to keep your home clean and tidy.
