When you bring people over to your home for a big event, you naturally want things to look their best. However, mud and dirt can build up on your floors thanks to rainy days and time spent in the yard, plus dust and grime gathers on everything no matter what time of year it is. To give your home that perfect look for a perfect party, be sure to remember these important cleaning tips.
1. Keep The Carpet Clean
Wall-to-wall carpets are common in many homes, but while they’re easy on your feet they’re also great at trapping dirt, gathering dust, and collecting stains. Regular vacuuming is an important weekly chore that keeps a carpet looking its best and preventing allergens like dust mites and pollen from building up. You should also have a professional service steam-clean and shampoo your carpets at least once per year.
2. Stay On Top Of Pet Stains
An accident with your dog is more likely in winter when it’s harder to stay outside for long, cats can cough up a hairball at any time of year, and every furred pet sheds its hair and dander every single day. There are a lot of responsibilities that come with owning a pet, and one of those responsibilities is cleaning up after them. That means using the right cleaning products and removing the hair from surfaces and air filters.
3. Clean The Grout
A lot of dirt and soap scum can build up in the grout between the tiles in your bathroom and kitchen, and over time mold can also start growing here. That’s why you should keep your tile surfaces clean and don’t forget to scrub between the tiles. However, you might also want to get a professional service to steam-clean your tiles and get everything out of the porous grout.
4. Wash Your Upholstery
Your couches, chairs, and other upholstery should get a good cleaning at least once per year. This will let you remove stains and bad odors, and you can clean off the grime that can build up on wood surfaces. You can clean most cloth couch cushions by removing the covers and running them through the washer, but for other surfaces and materials it can help to have a professional service take a look at them.
5. Scrub The Exterior
Rain isn’t nearly as clean as your shower water, and it can leave a lot of dirt on the outdoor walls, fences, patio, and furniture of your home. Fortunately, you don’t have to be as gentle with your outdoor surfaces since they can take a beating. Still, you might want to get a professional service to blast your siding with a pressure washer.
It’s good to be presentable before you host a big summer party, and cleaning your place up is a big part of that.
