Are you gearing up to cheer for your favorite football team? Do you enjoy having friends over to watch the big game? It’s time to get your house cleaned and ready for this year’s football season.
Professional residential cleaning services can help tackle dirt and grime, or maybe you’re looking for a few tips to intercept filth on your own. Here are a few tactics to get your home in prime shape for football season.
Intercept Clutter by Donating or Tossing
Conquer clutter once and for all. Use football season as an excuse to go through piles of mail on the counter, clean out your closets, or get rid of household items you haven’t used in the last year. Toss worn out or overly used items and donate those with value to local charities.
Tackle One Room at a Time
The thought of cleaning a whole house can be overwhelming. Why not break it down into manageable chunks and tackle one room at a time? You’ll find the task much less daunting.
Choose an easy room that won’t take you much time to make fast progress. Clean the room from top to bottom. You’ll tackle your home in no time.
Give Big Appliances a Time-Out
It’s time to stop avoiding major appliances and give them a nice, deep clean. Use vinegar to get rid of hard water in your dishwasher by running a cycle. Toss baking soda in your clothes washer for a fresh and clean scent upon completion. Wipe the inside and outside of your fridge with a mix of vinegar and water to clean and sanitize.
Kick Off the Season with Fresh Carpets
Vacuums can only do so much. Give your carpets a fresh smell by combining ½ cup baking soda, ½ cup Borax, and several drops of a fresh-smelling essential oil. Sprinkle on high trafficked carpets and allow it to sit for 30 minutes. Vacuum and enjoy the fresh aroma. Also, remind football guests to remove their shoes to reduce dirt tracked inside.
Huddle Up and Make Changes
New seasons are the perfect time to change a few things up around your home. Whether you decorate with fall colors, change out bedding, or buy new throw pillows, freshen up your home to change up your environment. Want an easy change? How about fresh flowers on your dining table, coffee table, or end tables.
Give Your Bathroom Double Coverage
Give your bathroom a good scrubbing and keep it clean with daily maintenance. Keep disinfectant wipes nearby to wipe down sinks, handles, and the toilet rim. Use shower cleaning sprays or squeegees to reduce streaking. Wipe splatters off mirrors as soon as they happen. With daily cleaning your bathroom will be ready for football guests.
