Cleaning Up After The Holidays

December 19, 2019 by lse admin

The holidays are a joyous time with family and friends, but that seasonal glow can fade quickly when you’re faced with the aftermath: a house to clean up once all your guests have left. Getting your place back into shape can be a daunting task, but we’ve got a few smart tips to help you do it in time for the new year.

Clean up after houseguests.
Give your house’s surfaces a deep clean. Wash all your linens. Vacuum carpets, floors, and baseboards to give yourself a fresh start. Clean out your refrigerator – eat the last of those yummy leftovers and then clean and store your leftover containers.

Strip the Christmas tree carefully.
Use as much care taking your tree down as you did putting it up to save you some headaches next year.

Rubbing alcohol can remove sap from washable clothing and knit gloves because it acts as a solvent. For clothes, even a down coat, saturate the area with alcohol, let sit for a minute, then launder in warm water with regular detergent. Heat sets stains, so be sure all the sap is gone before using the dryer. Repeat the process if any remains.

Check your carpet, rugs and furniture for stains.
The longer they set, the more difficult they will be to remove. If you spot any, use a spray bottle to lightly apply a mixture of warm water and mild dishwashing liquid. Blot with a paper towel and continue spraying and blotting until the stain is removed. Rinse with clear water and blot again. Fluff the pile and allow it to dry. To be safe and to save time, contact a professional carpet, rug and upholstery cleaning expert.

Use this time to get rid of what you don’t need.
Did you get some great new gifts for your kitchen or other places in the house? That’s great! But you may not need two or three chip and dip sets in your cabinet. Either discard old ones or donate them. Have kids? Recruit them to help by creating a race to see who can gather their toys first. Store toys that are of no interest at the moment and rotate or bring them out every once in a while to keep their spark.

Therefore, the holidays can do a number on your home! Between house guests, holiday feasts, and kids on school breaks, your house probably needs some TLC. Thankfully, we have you covered. Call Greenspring Rug Care today to have us help with your post-holiday cleaning needs!
