Start With a Deep Clean

Before you start decorating for the holidays, it’s important to do a deep clean of your home. This means getting rid of all the dirt, dust, and grime that has accumulated over the past few months. Start by dusting all surfaces, vacuum all floors, and scrubbing all bathrooms and kitchens.

This includes the carpets in your home! It’s no secret that carpets can get pretty dirty. Over time, they can become stained with dirt, dust, allergens, and other debris. Vacuuming regularly can help to keep carpets clean, but even the best vacuum can’t remove all of the dirt. Over time, this dirt can build up and lead to problems like allergies, asthma, and other respiratory problems in sensitive individuals. In addition, dirt can also damage carpet fibers, making them more susceptible to wear and tear. For these reasons, it’s important to have your carpets cleaned on a regular basis by a professional like Van’s Chem-Dry. Not only will this help to keep your carpets looking their best, but it will also help to protect your health and extend the life of your carpets.

The holidays are a great time to declutter your home. Get rid of any clutter that has built up over the years so that your home feels open and welcoming for guests. You can donate unwanted items to charity or have a garage sale to get rid of items you no longer need or want.


Decorate Strategically

When it comes to decorating for the holidays, less is more. You want your guests to feel comfortable in your home, so don’t go overboard with decorations. Choose a few key pieces that will help spread holiday cheer without making your home feel cluttered or cramped.


Prepare Guest Rooms

If you’re hosting out-of-town guests for the holidays, make sure you prep their room (or rooms) ahead of time. Stock the room with fresh linens, towels, and toiletries so they have everything they need during their stay. You should also take some time to declutter the guest room so there’s plenty of space for them to unpack and feel at home.


Get Organized

The holidays can be hectic, so it’s important to get organized ahead of time. Make lists of things you need to do and people you need to see so you can make the most of your holiday season without feeling frazzled or stressed out.
