During the holidays it is normal that we neglect the house more or leave aside the cleaning routine we have during the rest of the year, either because we go on a trip or we make more plans away from home.
With the return to routine, school, work... you have to be prepare your home home for your return from the holidays.
In this blog we want to give you some basic tips that will help you to get your house ready.
Tidy up the house to prepare your home
We can start by putting back the cushions, blankets, toys, magazines..., everything that we have been moving around during these days.
It is also a good time to make that change of organisation in the living room, dining room, bedrooms... that you have been wanting to do for so long.
Don't forget to unpack your suitcase and put it away, I know it's easy to put off but the sooner you do it the better.
Carry out a deep cleaning
After tidying up it is advisable to carry out a deep clean throughout the house, but if not, the bathrooms and the kitchen should have a deep clean.
These two spaces are by far the places in the house that accumulate the most dirt, which is why it is important to carry out a deep clean.
Tiles, windows, extractor hoods, cupboards, drawers, toilets... are some of the places that need to be cleaned most thoroughly, as they are where the most dirt accumulates. If you want advice on how to clean windows, don't hesitate to take a look at our blog "How to keep your windows clean", here you will find a lot of information on how to do it.
It is also advisable to wash the curtains, carpets and cushions around the house as they are not washed regularly.
Surely if you are not a lover of cleaning, the thought of doing all this isn’t very attractive, that's why Effective Cleaning Services is available to clean your house: kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms, fridge... everything you need and more.
Get rid of things you do not need
When you tidy up and clean your house you will probably find that you have items that you haven't used in a long time or discover some that you didn't know you had, so we recommend that you throw them away or donate them.
In addition, as the change of season is approaching it is preferable to put away the clothes that you know you are not going to use or start to change your wardrobe, here you will also discover that there are clothes that are torn, you do not use or no longer serve you, so it is better to get rid of them.
The last piece of advice we would like to give is for families with children. If you have small children at home, it is advisable to create a list of small tasks, adapted to their age, so that the children can do them on their own or with your help. These could be picking up toys, tidying up books... simple tasks that they can do perfectly well. This will help them realise how hard it is to keep everything tidy, but if we do it in a fun way they will want to keep helping us.
The return to routine can be difficult but if we take it with joy and leave everything ready for it, you will see how much less difficult it is.
