Volunteering to host your family and friends for the holidays always seems like a great idea. That is, until you’re knee-deep in a long list of chores and you’re not entirely sure if the ridiculous amount of food that you’ve purchased will be enough to feed them. We’ve all been there! 

The team at Sani-Kleen Carpet Care of Savannah wants to make sure that you’re prepared for the holidays, given that we’re right around the corner. That’s why we’ve dedicated today’s blog to a list of things that you can do to prepare your home for the tasty dinners and cozy nights. Let’s dive in.

Get the Kitchen in Order

Something that every host needs to have prepared is their kitchen. Whether you’re preparing the entire meal yourself or you’re going to be doing a potluck of sorts, it never hurts to have your kitchen organized and clean. Aside from being able to quickly find all of the utensils that you need, an organized kitchen makes it significantly easier to prepare your meals. While you do this, you can also go through the recipes that you plan to prepare and create a running list of items that you don’t currently have. Doing so while organizing your kitchen can help you prepare and avoid the chances of having to run to the store day-of.

Thorough Dusting

One of the most tedious chores that needs to be done is dusting. It’s pretty incredible just how much dust can build up in such a short amount of time, and while it’s no fun to tackle, it definitely needs to be done. Given that there is so much to do in regards to preparing your home for hosting the holidays, there’s no need to dust every nook and cranny of the house. Simply dust the rooms that are going to be used, any large appliances where dust is noticeable, and any parts of your house where it has heavily built up. This will be plenty to make your house look good as new!

Get the Upholstery Cleaned

Whether you’re hosting Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Years, you can guarantee your couches are going to be a popular spot for your guests. There are few things better than lounging around and getting cozy after a big, tasty meal. With that being said, you absolutely want to make sure that your couches are cleaned. While this is something that you could try and do on your own, it’s much better to hire a professional to tackle cleaning your upholstery so that you can enjoy couches that you know are clean.

Tidy Up the Bathrooms

Another spot in the house that you can guarantee people will be is the bathroom. Even if you’re known for being notoriously clean, it never hurts to give your bathroom a wipe down. Make sure that you dust, clean the toilet, and wipe down the counters. You’re also going to want to stock up the bathroom with toilet paper so that your guests don’t have to worry about running out while they’re in there.

Clean the Carpets

If your home has carpets in it, you’re definitely going to want to get these cleaned. Not only are carpets one of the most noticeable parts of the home, but they’re also a go-to place for family members to catch up, read Christmas stories, and open gifts. The downside to these factors is that carpet can become discolored quickly with usual foot traffic. Carpet also holds onto tons of dirt, dust and dander that can spark up your guests allergies. 

Whether your carpets are in need of a deep cleaning to bring up the gunk that’s hanging out at the roots or it’s needed to really make your house look spick and span, this is definitely something that you’re going to want to take care of before your guests come over. Trust us, no one ever regrets having their carpets cleaned!
