Seven Quick and Easy Tips for the Post-Christmas Clean-up
19 Dec 2022
Christmas is just around the corner and it’s a time of year that is spent eating, drinking and celebrating with friends and family. Copious amounts of food, lots of presents and let’s not forget our furry friends going on muddy walks – what could be better? But when all the celebrating is done, it’s worth remembering that all that mess will still need to be cleaned up.
While to some, the post-Christmas clean-up might seem daunting, at Mopheads, we’re here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be! As an experienced domestic cleaning service, we’ve shared some of our top tips to help you save time and your sanity this Christmas as you clean up the mess.
Here are seven quick and easy tips to get the job done.
1) Make it fun!
Cleaning doesn’t have to be a chore. Blast some music, invite some friends over or get the kids involved to make it more exciting. Add games or a scoring system to see who can clean the fastest. The more people you get involved, the faster it will go.
2) Set goals
Before you start cleaning, it can be helpful to set some goals. Decide what needs to be done and make a plan on how to best tackle the task at hand. This will help you to stay focused and on track.
3) Clean out the fridge and freezer
Before the festivities begin, it’s wise to eat the regular food in your fridge and freezer before the Christmas-gorging bonanza commences. This way, when it comes to saving the leftovers from the big day, you’ll have plenty of space.
And we get it. Through the hustle and bustle of the season, some food may slip through the cracks or you’ll simply get tired of eating all the leftovers. Spend the post-Christmas period getting rid of any food that’s past its expiration date and wipe down the shelves after.
4) Hire a local cleaning company
If you’re feeling overwhelmed, hire a professional cleaning company to come in and take the weight off your shoulders. At Mopheads, we run a slick operation that’ll have the job done in no time, saving you from having to chip away at the mountain of mess little by little. This’ll give you more time to enjoy your Christmas with friends and family without having to worry about the mess!
5) De-clutter as you clean
If you’re tackling it by yourself, then a good tip for making things look as clean as possible is to de-clutter as you go. Get rid of any clothes, toys or other items that you no longer need or use.
6) Keep a box for donations
When you’re de-cluttering, set aside a box for donations. This way, you can easily get rid of items without having to throw them away and clog up landfills. Not only that, but all those unwanted Christmas presents that you got this year can be donated to a worthier cause.
7) Check the upholstery for stains
After all the holiday parties and gatherings, your upholstery or carpets may have picked up a stain or two. Be sure to check all your fabric furniture and carpets for stains and spillages and have them cleaned before they set in, as the longer you leave them, the worse they’ll get.
