Even though it doesn’t look like Spring outside, at least not in Northeast Ohio, that shouldn’t deter you from doing a little Spring cleaning. So why would you want to Spring clean in November? Because you’re most likely going to re-decorate your house for the holiday season, and who wants to put out holiday decorations over dirt and clutter? Nope, not me. Start the holidays off right, with a one-day deep cleaning.
As I was discussing our holiday decorating plans amongst my co-workers, it came to my attention that we have many similarities when it comes to how we decorate. One thing I learned is that a few of us actually take all of our old pictures, photos, and tchotchke items down for the season. When you remove a picture that has been hanging on a wall for two years, it’s likely you will see dirt left on the wall around the frame, not to mention the inch-thick dust on the top of the picture. This is a clear sign that maybe, just maybe, you need to do some deeper cleaning.
As if decorating for the holidays wasn’t bad enough, now you have to clean! Ugh. But do not fear, cleaning can be fun and certainly give you a sense of accomplishment! I am going to give you my step-by-step holiday cleaning tips to help you get the job done so you can feel good about getting those decorations up!
To start, I have created a room by room checklist for you. You might have seen this from me before in the Thanksgiving Day Meal Prep blog I did earlier. If you followed my Thanksgiving Day Checklist and have already had your carpets cleaned, congratulations, you can skip that task!
Below is my step-by-step checklist for your pre-decorating cleaning. The amount of time it takes to clean your house will depend on how large your house is and how many family members you can solicit to help you, but I promise you can get it all done in a day!
Preparing for cleaning:
Step 1: Get the insides first
Step 2: Clear the surfaces
Step 3: Go Room by Room:
Step 4 – Cleaning the Kitchen
Step 5 – Clean the floors
Step 6 – Put everything back where it belongs
Lastly, enjoy your newly cleaned space!
Now you are already to hang that garland, don the tree, and hang up those stockings before your guests arrive!
Happy House Cleaning!
