Although there may be a long list of things to do for the holidays, you don’t have to do it all yourself. You can hand off some tasks to a professional. You’ll get high quality service and it will save you time.


Here are 5 home cleaning tips


1. Start cleaning a week or two before guests arrive. You don’t want to leave things until the last minute, but you also don’t want to do it too soon and then have to do it again.

Regardless of how far in advance you clean, you’ll still want to go back over the house with cleaning solutions that kill germs on surfaces right before guests arrive. Wipe down all the common areas of the home, door handles, countertops and any other surfaces you use often. This will give you an extra level of security.

2, Implement your spring cleaning plan in the fall. If you do a deep cleaning of your home in the spring, repeat the process this fall. You don’t need to go as far as organizing your closets, for example, but take time to do a little more cleaning than your weekly checklist.


3. Clean the linens. Make sure those special tablecloths, napkins, table runners and other fabrics are clean and wrinkle-free.


4. Clean the bedding. Think about everything your guests will need while they stay with you. If they are spending the night, be sure to clean the sheets, bed spread, pillowcases (even the fancy ones).


If the comforter is too big for the washer, send it to the dry cleaner. It’s a good idea to send all your bedding to the dry cleaner because their equipment uses higher temperatures than your residential washer. The hotter water kills more germs and gets your fabric much cleaner.


5. Have your holiday outfits clean and ready to wear. If you have a special outfit you want to wear, make sure it fits, it’s clean and it’s not wrinkled. A couple weeks before guests arrive, try it on and include it in your complementary Champion Cleaners garment bags so it will be picked up with your other weekly laundry and dry cleaning. Then you know it will come back ready to go. It’s free pick-up and delivery and it will save you time.
