Getting Your House Ready for the Holidays

| November 12, 2018

With the holidays right around the corner, we all experience the stress of shopping, party planning, cooking, cleaning the house and so much more. While you might not know where to begin, there are a number of things you can do to reduce stress and enjoy the holiday season.


  • First and most importantly, don’t procrastinate! Start early and make a plan.
  • Walk around your house and make a list of all the house cleaning projects you would like to get done before the guests arrive.
  • Focus on guest rooms, kitchen cleaning and organization, closets, bathrooms and recreation rooms. Don’t forget to wash and iron the holiday tablecloths, and clean and polish the fine china and silverware.
  • If you’re doing the work yourself, plan to do a task or two a day so it’s not overwhelming. Involve the kids on tasks they can handle too. Post your chore list and who is responsible for each task. The whole family will enjoy marking off the finished chores. Perhaps offer a special treat when each person completes their to-do list.
  • If you need to hire professional window, carpet or house cleaner, book early. They get busy during the holiday season.
  • A week or so before the holiday celebrations, give the house a once over cleaning and sit back and enjoy a classic holiday movie with the family.

If you’re like many of us, getting ready for the holidays can be a daunting and time-consuming task. Between work obligations, holiday travel, family and shopping, it may be difficult to find the time or the energy for house cleaning.  You don’t want to let simple household chores ruin the special times this holiday season. Hiring a trusted, professional and experienced house cleaning service is the perfect solution that will save you both time and money.

Save Time: Hiring a house cleaning service will allow you more time to enjoy holiday parties, family get-togethers, cooking or planning for a vacation. Why worry about how clean your house is when someone else can do that for you?

Save Money: Professional housekeepers have all the cleaning tools and supplies to make you house sparkle and shine. You won’t need to go out and purchase expensive cleaning products. A cleaning company that uses organic cleaning products will also give you peace of mind knowing your pets and children are safe from dangerous chemicals used in many products on the market today. Time is money and your time is better spent working or spending quality time with the people you care about.

Are You Organized? Not everyone is and let’s face it, most of us have a messy closet, junk drawer or sofa that hasn’t been swept under in a while. It’s perfectly fine to ask for help when it comes to cleaning and organizing our homes. Professional house cleaners can help you get a fresh clean start. Your holiday visitors will be impressed.

Travelling for the Holidays? Vacations are fun but who wants to come home to a messy house? While most people love to travel, coming home always feels good. Imagine walking into a freshly cleaned house where all you have to do is unpack.

Reduce Stress: Of all the things keeping you busy this holiday season, don’t let household cleaning projects stress you out. A clean and organized environment is soothing to the mind and soul. Hiring a professional house cleaning service is a holiday gift you can give yourself. Holidays are a time to relax, enjoy friends, family and loved ones, not the time to stress out about house cleaning.
