Cleaning for the Holidays (Part II)

Remove Dust from Wall and Baseboard

Removing dust from your wall and baseboard is important when adding Christmas decorations and lights around your home. A good option is to fill a bucket with water with a little bit of dish soap and wipe the walls and baseboard. For hard to reach areas on the walls, the easiest method is to get a microfiber cloth with an extension and use as if you were wiping the floors with a mope.

Tidy up Your Staircase

Looping your staircase with Christmas garland is a nice holiday touch to the season. Before you can start ornamenting the staircase, start vacuuming from the top of the step all the way to the bottom. For non-carpet stairs, you will need to mope after vacuuming. To remove dust, you can either use a dust broom or microfiber cloth.

Cleaning for the Holidays (Part I)

Wipe Your Floors

Make sure to clean your floors thoroughly before bringing out the Christmas tree and decorations. For hardwood floors, this involves vacuuming and moping. If the floor is carpet, it’s wise to hire a professional to treat the carpet if you are expecting guests over for the holidays. Cleaning your floors early in December will help you get ahead of holiday hustle and give you a chance to enjoy the holiday season.

Deep Clean Your Bathroom

Deep cleaning your bathroom will require a bit of time when you first start but your bathroom will require low maintenance after the deep clean. Remove any grimes from the sink with soap and water, then use a glass cleaner for the mirror. Scrub the bathtub surface with a sponge and make a paste out of baking soda and water for any stubborn stains. Also, don’t forget to scrub your toilet with toilet bowl cleaner and toilet brush.
