Christmas Cleaning – maid service Rockville

maid service RockvilleAre you going to be throwing your home open for Christmas, maid service Rockville asks. Guests bring their own set of demands, and one of them is a clean house!

Here are the maid service Rockville tips for tidying:

Prepare the guest bedrooms. The beds should have clean sheets, and the room should be polished and vacuumed, so it smells fresh and clean. It’s a nice touch to put some flowers in there, and leave a pile of just washed towels on the bed.

The thoughtful host leaves out a selection of books or magazines to suit the guest’s reading tastes. You’ll also want to give them some space in a wardrobe or chest of drawers where they can store their clothes if your guests are going to be with you for a few days.

Clean your fridge and oven. The oven will be handling a lot of food over Christmas, and food that makes a mess. Turkey and roast potatoes, in particular, can be messy in the oven. Clean it in advance so it will not be as unpleasant to do afterwards.

Your fridge and freezer will be storing a lot of food too. Clear your fridge out of everything that’s out of date, says maid service Rockville, and make sure there is plenty of room for all the stuff that is going to be stored in there.

The same applies to the freezer. You’ll be using this for ice-cubes, frozen desserts and left-overs, and perhaps your turkey. Freezers work best when they are full, but you still need a little space for the air to circulate.

Wash your glasses. Everyone will want to raise a glass of Christmas cheer, and they should do this in a sparkling clean glass. Wash your glasses in very hot water and a little detergent, rinse thoroughly and dry to a gleam with a soft, lint-free cloth.

Give the bathroom a super-spritz. Everyone needs to use the bathroom, don’t they? Therefore, your bathroom needs a thorough clean and tidy before guests arrive. Ensure the plugholes are cleaned too, with a solution of vinegar and water to clear out debris and leave fresh-smelling.

Our tips for your Christmas clean-up

We all want our houses spic and span for the festive season and Christmas Day in particular. Apart from relatives and friends we never know who else might pop in to visit.

So, here’s our Budget Maids quick tips to getting your household looking ship shape – without having to spend too many hours on it.

Forget cleaning the whole house. When short for time it makes sense to simply concentrate on the rooms which will be seen ie the sitting room and the dining area. The bathroom is another must-do.

Recycle the kids toys before Christmas Day. You know they’re going to get a whole lot more on Dec 25 and the old ones will take second place to the new toys anyhow. Therefore to ensure you have enough storage room for the new toys take all the ones they haven’t played with for months now down to the local charity shop. Or sell them on eBay.

Arrange those food cupboards now. Get rid of all the stuff past its sell-by date and make sure you have all the essentials sitting there ready to be grabbed when needed. This includes coffee, tea bags, condiments, sugar, flour etc.

Defrost the freezer in preparation for Christmas dinner. You know things get so busy in the last run-up to Christmas Day that you’ll never have time then. You’re going to need the extra space for the additional food you’ll have to store to feast the rest of the family who are bound to drop in over the festive season.

Get your storage organised. While pulling out the Christmas decorations give the cupboard a little tidy up while you’re at it. It’ll be easier to store Christmas presents there as the days go by and the number of wrapped presents start to mount up.

And on that note, make sure you have enough bin bags with which to throw out all that unwrapped Christmas paper and boxes. No-one wants all that hanging around the house for days.
