As soon as the calendar shows November, your thoughts are most likely on the upcoming holiday season. During the months of November, December and January, your home may have more guests pass through it than any other time of the year. That means you’ll be taking extra steps in preparing your home for the holidays to ensure that your home looks its best before the holiday entertaining begins!
Your preparation process will probably include some serious cleaning. You may have been so busy with outdoor summer activities that you put some of those housecleaning chores aside. One tip for finding out just how extensive your preparation process is going to be is to temporarily leave home.
When you return, pretend you are a guest arriving at your home. How does the exterior of your home look? Is the walkway illuminated and free of debris? What condition is your welcome mat in? Does your front door and entry way look inviting? These are all things your guests will notice before they enter your home.
Once you get inside, pay close attention to potential eye sores that guests are sure to notice. Your floors could be one of the first negative distractions in your home. If you haven’t had your carpet professionally cleaned in a while, doing so before the holidays would be one way to confidently know your guests will be impressed when they arrive.
When guests see how exquisite your carpet looks, they may inquire as to how you maintain it so beautifully. You can proudly let them know that you have them cleaned in a manner that corresponds to your environmentally conscious lifestyle by choosing an eco-friendly service.
While examining your home as a pretend guest, if you see rugs that are in need of repair, you’ll want to take care of that before the holiday season arrives. You might see stains that you haven’t actually noticed as you’ve hurried through your daily activities.
Professional carpet cleaners can usually remove unsightly stains that would be immediately noticeable to guests. Keep in mind that you might need those same professionals to come back following the holidays to clean stains that occurred during one of your holiday events. In preparing your home for the holidays, having the carpets cleaned by experienced professionals is one less thing to worry about when entertaining this holiday season.
