House Cleaning Tips

If you did not have time to finish your spring cleaning, there is no need to panic as you can get your home clean and presentable for your 4th of July guests with just a few tasks.  By cleaning these main areas of your home, you can make your house look a lot cleaner and more presentable.

  • Front of the House: The front of your house is what your guests will notice first before they even reach your property so making sure your yard and home look good from the street will help make a good impression. Mow your lawn and clean up any debris from your yard such as sticks, leaves, and toys and clean up any nests or spider webs that may be on your porch or the front of your house.
  • Doors to the Outside:Most 4th of July parties involve guests moving from inside your house to the yard which means that the door to your yard will be used often. Whether you have a glass sliding door or a more traditional door, make sure both sides of the door and any windows are clean as guests will be using it throughout the entire party.
  • Deck or Patio:If your 4th of July party will mostly be taking place in an outside area such as a deck or patio, make sure that area is clean and free of any debris. You can prepare your deck or patio by sweeping the area and pressure washing it if you have the time.
  • Pool:If you have a pool that will be open to your guests, you should make sure to clean out any debris from the water and vacuum the bottom to make the pool more appealing.

As this 4th of July quickly approaches, use these tips to help prepare your home for guests and plan out a safe 4th of July celebration that can be enjoyed by everyone.  If you do not have the time to clean your home before the 4th or would like to have your home professionally cleaned after hosting a cookout, contact Tidy Up Angels and we will do your entire house cleaning.
