5 Quick Cleaning Tips for the New Year

You just found out your family wants to come over for a holiday catch-up. They’ll be over in just a few days — and if your home isn’t ready, you might be panicking already. While you can always call a local cleaning company in Bucks County, there are also a few quick things that you can handle on your own if you only have a little time before family arrives. Here are a few quick tips to be sure your home looks as clean as possible without a minute to spare.

Look at the whole house: If you only focus on one room, you are likely to spend the majority of your time there. Look at the whole area your guests will see and do one task in each of those places before moving on.

Sweep before you mop: Many people think they can mop the floor and it will be clean. However, the dirt on the floor makes most floors look worse. By sweeping first, your mopping is far more effective.

Dust every surface: This does not mean just shelves and the entertainment center. While those are both excellent places to begin, don’t forget your picture frames, ceiling fans, furniture (even sofas), and end tables.

Do not overlook glass surfaces: All of the glass in your home should sparkle. This means cleaning both the inside and the outside of your windows, wiping off all mirrors, and even getting light fixtures that are within reach. This simple tip can help any room look cleaner in no time.

Do the floors last: The last set of tasks you want to accomplish is to vacuum, sweep, and mop. That way, with the rest of your cleaning, any debris you moved that did not get caught in a rag, still gets cleaned up.

If you have a little time before your family arrives, make things simpler by scheduling your house cleaning in Bucks County from the trusted professionals at Minch!
