Three Tips for Post-Holiday Cleaning

It’s a new year. It’s time to pack up those Christmas decorations and put your home back to normal. That means cleaning up after the relatives have finally gone. It can be a daunting task for many people. The more decorations you have, the more cleaning you have to do after you take them down. Just taking down the decorations is a big job, particularly if you are doing it by yourself. Here are three ways to make that job easier as you move forward in to the year ahead.

1. Do it in Stages

There is no need to rush in to the process of removing your decorations and tree. Choosing to do it all at once is a lot of pressure to put on you. Instead, choose to do a little bit each day. Clear out the living room decorations one day, and then work on another room the next day, and so on. This way the task isn’t as overwhelming as doing it all at one time. Leave the tree for last since that will take the longest. If you can, enlist the help of family or friends.

2. Clean as You Go

Clean up the room after you pack away the decorations. Vacuum/wipe the floors first, especially if you have pets. Animals tend to take things from the ground often. You don’t want your pet choking on any small part of the decorations that may have fallen off. After vacuuming, take a damp cloth and run it over the furniture to get rid of any dust or stains left behind after the holidays.

3. Call a Professional

Some of us just don’t have the time to clean the house after the holidays. It’s even harder to do when you have a family to take care of and work to do. Don’t be afraid to call a professional cleaning service to take care of your home for you. It’s what they do best and it will take the worry out of your hands.
