December is a very busy month in many households. There is shopping, party planning, and card writing ,just to name a few of those things that have our attention this month. Have you thought about the condition of your home over the holidays? If you have guests or if you are just enjoying a quiet holiday at home with the immediate family; sprucing up your home will add to an enjoyable holiday. Here are some things you can do to get your home spic and span before the big day.
Clean the Carpets
Even if you are vacuuming on a regular basis and clean up stains as soon as they happen, your carpet can harbor many dirty little secrets. Over time carpet accumulates with dust, dirt, pet hair, dust mites and their droppings, and many other things. These items can be harmful to your health when exposed to them for long periods of time, not to mention it is prime cold and flu season right now. Having a professional deep cleaning of your carpets will make your home seem and feel so much cleaner because it will be. An added bonus: it is a step to help keep cold and flu out of the home.
A Good Dusting
This is one of those jobs that just never seems all that fun so it gets ignored. Take some time to get those areas that usually get ignored like the shelves, picture frames, light fixtures, and electronics. Electronics are dust magnets.
Clean the Furniture
Your furniture is a major hang out area during the holidays. People come over and they either look for refreshments or a place to get comfy. Have upholstery professionally cleaned to get all the build up that has been hanging out in there out. Turn your furniture into a clean, fresh and relaxing place to watch the family open presents.
This one may seem a little out of the ordinary, but your landscape needs love even durning the winter months. This is especially important if you have a walkway that winds through your garden leading to the front door. Make sure things are trimmed and in order to receive and welcome guests.
Holiday Mini Makeover
Ok so this one is reaching for the sky, but if there is something you always wanted to do to your home and have never done it, like set up that cute coffee bar or organize the entryway, then do it now and let your guests help you enjoy it. Make it your holiday present to yourself, it will make you all the more excited to have guests in your home.
