With Easter just around the corner, you might be planning to have friends and family in your home! If you are, you know that your house has to be extra clean for all the bunnies you are welcoming into your home. Don’t stress about cleaning for your upcoming gathering because I have some helpful tips on how to get a clean home just in time:
1. Clean Your Furniture
Why furniture? Well, everyone is going to be looking at where they sit, right? You want to show off that you have nice clean furniture. Plus, it’s an easy place to start cleaning and it will make the greatest impression on your guests. For fabric, give your furniture a good vacuum to get rid of dust particles and spot treat any stains so that they do not appear dirty. If you have leather furniture, make sure you use a cleaner that properly cleans and conditions leather so that your furniture looks as good and clean as the rest of your home.
Get rid of dust and dirt with a damp cloth. Be sure to go over areas that are in your line of vision. For example, fireplace mantel,stairs, counters, and banisters. Or areas where you might be hiding an Easter egg.
3. Clean Your Floors
If you are vacuuming furniture, might as well vacuum your floors. If you have stubborn carpet stains, you should get your biannual carpet cleaning. If you have natural stone and tile, you should clean up debris in the corners of your rooms. The biannual cleanings for stone and tile will greatly reduce the accumulated dirt that seeps into your grout. The sooner you address it, the easier it is to remove.
* Maybe Clean Your Yard (Optional)
If your guests will be outside, in your backyard, you’ll have to make sure that it’s clean and presentable. It would be good to blow out yard clippings and patio area. Plus, it reduces the amount of dirt that enters your home.
