Residential Holiday Season Cleaning Tips
One of the ways you can reduce your stress this holiday season is by ensuring your home is clean and ready to receive guests. There’s nothing like the embarrassment you can feel when it’s time to receive family in for the holidays, only to realize your home is in less that welcoming condition. But will all the responsibilities we have, all the social activities, vacations scheduled, and all the extra work required to prepare for being away, we can easily get overwhelmed and have little time for house keeping.

In between professional cleanings, there are a few things you can do to help keep your holiday season fun and merry instead of stressful and grim. Having things neater and tidier will go a long way to staying better organized with is a key to enjoying your time this season.
Have you ever felt like you need a vacation just after you returned from one? This is mostly due to the stressful, emotional aspect of vacationing. True, you’re busy to prepare and all, but it’s the worry, the lack of a plan, the disorganization, and the constant need to be on schedule that really gets to you. Emotion can drain you completely.
So, the first thing you’ll want to do to help yourself enjoy your family get-togethers and any free time is ensure you’re organized. That means to plan ahead a little and be sure you’re jotting some notes down on what all needs to get done. Being prepared in advance with grocery shopping already done, dry cleaning already handled, vehicles running great, kids babysitting already scheduled, and more can be done in advance to give you time later to enjoy some freedom from it all.
The second thing you’ll want to do is enlist the help of your family members. Children can help you shop, help pick up and organize the home, help with outdoor sweeping and yard cleaning, and even the spouse can help with grocery list making, meal planning, and grilling or cooking.
