So, Christmas is coming, I know we all like to deny its come around again so quickly, but it’s time to start thinking about the family coming round for the festive period.

It’s not the easiest time of the year to make sure the house is kept as clean as you probably want it to be. So, we wanted to help with some handy tips and tricks we’ve learned over the years.

Tip no. 1 – Declutter! Move the things that won’t be needed

We’ve all got those bits and bobs lying around the house. We use them every now and then but they very rarely actually get used. The rocking chair in the corner, bought for the hours you’d spend reading a nice book, well that free time very rarely happens due to one thing or another.

You could donate the bits you no longer want to charity, find some space in the garage until after Christmas or just throw it out, go on be ruthless!  

Tip no. 2 – Get the carpets deep cleaned

Nothing makes the house look cleaner, sometimes even smell better, than a freshly deep cleaned carpet. It can be surprising how much dirt, dust and grime a carpet can hold.

Move the furniture out for a real spring clean, while its out of its normal position it’s the perfect time to get a deep carpet clean. You could even hire it yourself from one of the big DIY stores.

Tip no. 3 – Clean the Bathroom with White Vinegar

There’s nothing worse than scrubbing away in the bathroom trying to get rid of all the limescale that has built up over time. It helps break down the molecules found in Limescale and can be great for removing it all together.

Just spray in onto the Toilet, shower and sink, leave it overnight. Yes, sleep while you clean your bathroom and then wipe it all away the morning after.

Tip no. 4 – Bring in the professionals! Yes, let someone else do it! 

There’s nothing better than sitting back relaxing and not having to worry about any of it! Get a professional cleaning company in to do it, like the guys at Local Cleaners. Find a cleaning company that could either just come in and complete a special one-off deep clean leading up to Christmas.

Even better, get them in every 2 weeks and see the difference!

So, in summary

There’s a host of ways to make sure your house is ready for the busy festive period. And if you don’t fancy doing it yourself, there’s always the professionals to call upon!
