Hire help for holiday house cleaning
The holidays are a time for fun and family, but if you're the host of a holiday event, you know there's a lot of prep work to be done before the guests arrive. A Los Angeles house cleaning company can help get your home spotless and ready for guests that come from near and far. With the amount of preparation that goes into hosting holiday events, house cleaning is one task which you can hire help.
Whether you hire help or tackle the holiday cleaning yourself, there are several important things to do before the guests arrive:
- Prepare for your holiday guests by organizing closets to make room for out-of-towners to unpack their clothes. No one enjoys pulling wrinkled items from a suitcase just in time for those holiday snapshots.
- Clean guest bathrooms including tubs and showers, toilets and sinks, and wash towels and linens.
- Make sure extra pillows and blankets have been laundered and are set aside for guests so you are not scrambling at the last minute to make sure everyone is comfy and cozy before bedtime.
- Consider providing more work area for the possibility of extra cooks in the kitchen by temporarily boxing up unnecessary appliances or other items and storing them in an attic or basement.
- Clean out the refrigerator in preparation for holiday goodies and leftovers. Organize the pantry to provide for those extra cooking and baking ingredients. This is also a good time to collect plastic tubs and tins for packing up leftovers or holiday cookies.
- Wash the holiday towels and any special dishes that you want to use, as well as linens for the dining table.
- Polish the silverware. If you have a formal dining area that is not used every day, set the table early. It can double as décor and will be one more thing to check off the to-do list.
- If you’ve moved furniture to make room for the Christmas tree or other decorations, make another pass with the vacuum.
