Tips for the big pre-christmas clean-out

With the big Christmas party just around the corner now is the perfect time to get yourself ready for the flood of family and friends and the havoc caused by cooking a Christmas meal. Check out these easy tips to get yourself ready for the incoming whirlwind. 

 

Kitchen 

If you are the host for Christmas this year, the likelihood is that the kitchen will be your home for a large part of this period. The kitchen isn’t just about cooking. It is important to stay healthy and hygienic. 

  • Clean your oven. One very important task before Christmas is cleaning out the oven. A dirty oven will contain small pieces of cremated food which will not only affect the taste of your food but can cause smoke, leaving an awful smell throughout the house. Our sister site Cleanhome Chatham wrote a great blog about how to keep your oven clean. 
  • Fridge. The next most important thing to clean before the christmas period is the fridge. Christmas usually means a large influx of food into the house. A good practice is to go through the fridge and remove any out of date food, composting and recycling as much as possible. This will not only make it safer for the newer food going in but will also free up more room for wine and cheese!

 

Living room

After the kitchen, the next main room used by all will be the living room. Prior to the big day there are a few key areas of this room that you should clean. 

  • Carpets. There are two stages to cleaning the carpets before Christmas. The first stage is the deep clean. Even with thorough vacuuming there will still be dust and dirt deep into the carpet so we recommend getting a professional carpet cleaner. These are machines which will shampoo the carpet at the same time as lifting out any stuck in dirt and dust particles. The next step is to just stay on top of general vacuuming. If you regularly vacuum once a week consider doubling this during the festive period when there are many people around. 
  • The Tree. If you have a real fir tree then you will know the struggles of keeping the area clean. Falling pine needles can be difficult to stay on top of however if the area is prepared for them then maintenance is a very simple task. Add a blanket or sheet (blanket gives nicer look to the area) under the tree and around the area encompassing the tree. This means that every morning the corners can be lifted up towards the tree in the center and then simply vacuumed up using a thin attachment on the vacuum. 

 

Bathroom 

The most important area to keep clean in the house is the bathroom. Getting your bathroom as clean and hygienic as possible in the build-up to christmas means it will be easier to maintain once there are more people in the house using the room. After the deep clean a simple spray and wipe around everything once a day or once every two days should keep the room sufficiently clean. 

Cleanhome offers great one time or repeating cleaning services all at affordable prices. Check out our other blogs filled with tips and tricks on our social media pages or our blog section.

Bespoke Service

We are not happy until you are! Your cleaner will usually tailor their services to fit exactly with your requirements, including spring cleaning and ironing.

Peace of Mind

Only 1 in 50 applicants makes it on to our carefully screened database. We interview them twice, visit them in their own homes and take up at least two references. And if they still subsequently don't measure up to your standards, we will send you someone who does.

Personal Cleaner

We don't operate in teams, and therefore you get the same cleaner every week. This is good because you develop a relationship with your cleaner. We have some clients who have had the same cleaner for years and years - and that's what we want for you.
