Labor Day weekend is like summer’s last hurrah, so make it count!
With all the sanitary precautions get your relatives and friends for a potluck barbecue, have a Burger Cook-Off, a picnic in the park, play disc golf, take a road trip to the mountains, or any activity that make the most of your three-day weekend this Labor Day. But first give us a call to schedule your home cleaning, who has time for that when you plan such a fun weekend. We have custom cleanings available and if you are thinking on getting on a regular schedule, we have special promotion just for you. Give us a call to book a custom clean or to get you on an on ongoing schedule.
First things first – Do a “visitor” walk thru and just take notes of everything that you see that are out of place. This is a great time to give out these little tasks to any other people in the house if possible, to get a little bit of help with this hectic time.
Depending on your time limit that you have, I recommend these are the things that you take care of 2-3 days beforehand.
–Clean windows and vacuum window tracks. Mop baseboards.
–Deep clean bathrooms and straighten bedrooms.
–Clean all top kitchen surfaces. Wipe fridge and make room for extra food in there.
–Dust all surfaces and sweep entryway.
–Disinfect all metal handles.
DAY BEFORE OR DAY OF VISITING (IF POSSIBLE)
–Place sanitizer in strategic areas for all visitors to use.
–Hang fresh hand towels, and check hand soap
–Wipe any dirty areas in the bathrooms using a wet rag.
–Put toilet bowl cleaner in the toilets and give them a quick brushing.
–Wipe mirrors, countertops, and bathroom floors with a damp towel.
–Take out the garbage, and line trash receptacles with clean liners.
–Straighten stacks of magazines and books.
–Straighten and fluff sofa pillows and cushions.
–Carry a laundry basket throughout the house, picking up clutter as you go. Once filled, put everything in its place or you can just hide the basket.
–Vacuum high-traffic areas.
–Place fresh flowers and light scented candles.
Now your home should look and smell great. This will take off the extra stress that can be associated with having visitors and/or family over to your home.
