Christmas is the time for the family to come together, but for many people, it’s also a season that seems to be full of neverending cleaning duties! They say one of the best ways to prepare for Christmas is to clean the house beforehand so if you are looking to spring clean your house ready for the Christmas season, here are a few tips to get your home ready for Santa!

Start by Decluttering

One of the best ways to make sure that you are not overexerting yourself in the cleaning stakes is to declutter your home and is the only effective method of kickstarting any cleaning job. Because if you start to hang decorations around the junk you have accumulated, you are wasting time. Decluttering is one of the best ways to get your home ready for the festive season, especially after Santa has squeezed down your chimney.

Deep Clean Your Carpets

Cleaning your carpets is essential before you start to have the family over for parties, who bring their fair share of dirt and mud. Regular vacuuming is great, but you need to use a professional carpet cleaner that will bring out that shine in your carpet.

Clean the Windows

Before you start spraying snow all around the windows, make sure that the windows are clean on the inside and out. If you love decorating your windows for the holiday season, giving the windows a good wipe down is going to make life easier, especially when it comes to the new year and you are ripping off paper decorations with six-month-old dirt attached to them.

Prepare Your Dishes and Cutlery

The best way to do this is to count the number of guests you are expecting over the festive season and also make sure that you have enough people. Christmas is a busy time for a lot of people, and if there’s a lot of guests on the menu, you will need to take out your special utensils and give them a thorough wash before you use them.

Take Care of Dust and Cobwebs

If you are someone who likes to start decorating at the end of November, it’s wise to dust the house quickly one more time before you put everything together. Look at those parts of the house you haven’t seen since last Spring and get rid of the cobwebs on the ceilings and the corners of the wall. It will make life a lot easier when it comes to taking all the decorations down in January!

Invest Some Time in the Bathroom

This is definitely one of the things you do not want to do during the holidays. Take the time to squeeze some heavy-duty cleaner into the toilet bowl and wipe the tiles down with some cleaning product after you’ve taken a shower, which will make everything a lot easier. If you are trying to get your bathroom sparkling, it may take a few goes which is why you need to invest in a high-quality cleaner and also give it the time it deserves. Because, with all the will in the world, you will not have the time when Christmas comes!
