Keeping your home clean

It’s the best time of the year. Wouldn’t it be right to have your home at its best? When it comes to making your home beautiful, nothing can match the beauty of a clean home. Keeping your home clean can be difficult especially during holidays when people are coming and going all the time, popping in for a visit and consistently walking through your home, leaving a trail of dirt and dust behind.

That’s where the challenge lies. So, you want can you do to keep your home clean?

Start with cleaning your hardwood floors. Hardwood floors are beautiful and they have that certain effect that makes your home elegant. However, they need proper care and maintenance, in order to keep their appearance looking it’s best even during the busiest month of the year.

Clean immediately

If there are food or wine spills, remember to clean it up right away. The longer it sits, the harder it is to remove them and the more chance of a stain happening. Make this your number one cleaning rule especially during this season when having a party becomes a common thing.

Be extra careful

When moving heavy furniture, make sure to do it carefully. You can use a thick pad, old towel or cloth underneath the furniture to prevent scratching. You can also ask for help when removing furniture – after all, four hands are better than two!

Sweep regularly

You’ll never know when guests will show up so always make sure your home is ready. Sweeping your hardwood floor can prevent dust and dirt buildup. Vacuum and mop once a week or as necessary and remember not to over wet your floor so dry mop immediately after to remove any excess water.

Don’t let your home gather dust this New Year, instead, keep it cleaned for that fabulous look for the holiday!
