Easter is almost here, and it is time to prepare our homes for the upcoming family gatherings. Even if you are not hosting this years party, you still need to tidy the house, so why not follow our advice for the perfect spring speed cleaning session? After a quick consultation with our professional London cleaners, we have created a list of 5 important chores you must finish in order to welcome the Easter Bunny in your home.
The Entryway and the Outsides of Your House Needs Your Attention
Start the cleaning process from the outside and make your way inside. If you want to properly prepare for the upcoming egg hunt in your garden here is what you need to do:
- Pressure clean your porch and remove all moss and grass patches;
- Remove the foliage from your garden;
- Wipe clean the garden furniture;
- Trim the bushes and mow your lawn;
Now, after you all done outside, take care of your entryway:
- Arrange the shoes and coats and put away the items you are not going to use in spring;
- Wash the doormat;
- Wipe the door, its frame and knob;
- Clean the furniture;
Easter Kitchen Cleaning
We have some good and some bad news. The goods are that if you are not hosting your Easter party, you don’t have to be diligent in the kitchen cleaning. The bad ones are that if you are in fact having your family over you need to devote a lot of time in tidying this room. And the reasons behind that are simple, the more food you prepare the dirtier the kitchen. However, our cleaning company has a couple if cleansing secrets for its London customers:
- Do not let the dishes pile up. When you are done using something, wash it right away.
- After using the worktop, wipe it. This way it won’t get sticky and you will remove all food stains.
- Do not leave sliced fruits or vegetables just sitting outside. It is getting warmer, and food can get easily bad.
Prepare Your Living/Dining Room for Easter
Regardless of how big your home is the family room will be the one that needs the most care and attention. Before your guests arrive, be certain to:
- Vacuum the upholstery and try to remove any leftover stains;
- Launder your curtains and wipe the dust from your blinds;
- Fluff your decorative pillows;
- Wipe the table and chairs;
- Polish all wooden surfaces;
- Remove the cobwebs from under the furniture and from the ceiling;
Our cleaning experts advice to have the following items to prevent a possible stain disaster in your London home:
- A broom and a dustpan – everybody can incidentally break a glass
- Wet wipes – perfect for fast removing stains from upholstery and bedding
- Clean cloths – you never know what will need to be wiped
- Paper towels – if you spill liquids, they will absorb them fast.
- Salt – Place it on top of any type of oil or grease stain before attempting to wash the damaged fabric
The Necessary Cleaning Chores
There are a couple of tasks that you can’t escape from. You must do them in every room in your London home in the right order. All professional house cleaners say, they are the most important 3 actions, that define the act of housecleaning:
- Dusting – You always do it from top to bottom. Never utilise a feather duster and make sure to use a damp cloth when removing dust from wooden surfaces.
- Hovering – Always do it after you have cleaned everything else. Use your vacuum cleaner’s attachments and remember to empty your hover’s bag regularly.
- Mopping – This is the last cleaning step. The type of mop and detergents you are using depends on the type of flooring you have. Try to ensure a fresh air flow in the room, so everything will dry off quicker.
Time to Decorate Your London Home
And it is finally time for the most fun part of the whole cleaning process – the decoration of the home. You can do a lot of things to make your house feel more festive:
- Instead of buying cheap decorations why not do them yourself? Many fun online ideas would be perfect for a little family time.
- Why not bake traditional Easter sweets, and you can even try to make your own chocolate eggs.
- Speaking of eggs, don’t be afraid to experiment and dye your Easter eggs in a variety of colours.
Remember Easter is a family holiday and as long as you are with the ones you love, doing the things that make you happy, everything will be perfect.
