The festive season is just around the corner, and we all are super excited to decorate our homes. Enjoying all the sweets and savories we prepare for the festivities with our family and loved ones is a highlight of our year. Before all of this fun, we have to take care of cleaning our homes, and this comes with a lot of challenges to make our living space look its best for the season, especially if your friends and family are joining you for the celebration.
Let's Dive Into Cleaning Your Living Room Today!
Get All Your Cleaning Supplies Together
To begin with, you will need to gather all of your cleaning supplies, which will include brooms, dustpans, microfiber cloths, surface cleaning sprays, a bucket and ladder, sponges, cleansers, a small trash bag, and a vacuum cleaner. When you bring all the supplies in one place, you will find it much easier to clean your living room step-by-step more efficiently, as you will no longer have to run back and forth to gather everything. It will also make it easier for you to organize yourself, as you will find all the supplies in one place.
Dump Items In Laundry
This means loading washable items such as pillow covers, cushion covers, or curtains into the washing machine and giving them a quick rinse. This step will not only help you remove dirt, dust, and stains, but it will also help you remove pet hair if you are a proud pet owner. Make sure to clean these items at least once a month to keep them dust-free. In case you're allergic to dust, this step can help you get rid of that allergic reaction too!
Wipe Down The Hard Surface
It's time to give your furniture and other hard surfaces some love and care by giving them a general cleaning. Take a cleanser or a surface cleaning spray and a microfiber cloth to wipe down tables, bookshelves, TV areas, photo frames, curtain rods, and lampshades, and don't forget to pay attention to your showpiece items as they have tiny dust particles sitting on them. If your cloth becomes too wet, replace it and continue cleaning the windows, ceiling, fan, light fixtures, switchboards, door knobs, and any other furniture in your living room. Also, when cleaning electrical devices, use a dry cloth with a tiny amount of all-purpose surface cleaners. Avoid using overly damp cloths as they can easily damage your device.
Sweep And Mop Floor
The most important step is to disinfect your floors and make them shine by sweeping and mopping them with floor cleaner or DIY soap water. Pay close attention to every corner of your living area, especially underneath and behind the chairs, sofas, tables, and other easily movable furniture.
Put Your Vacuum Cleaner At Work
Prepare yourself with a vacuum cleaner. A vacuum cleaner will assist you in thoroughly cleaning every corner of your living room to remove dust particles from couches, carpets, ceiling fans, cobwebs, and dust bunnies. It also helps you get rid of pet hair, is simple to use, and saves you a lot of time and energy.
Finishing Tips To Complete Your Cleaning Task
- Make Sure To declutter unnecessary items taking up space in your living room
- After cleaning, use a room freshener to refresh your living room.
- You can also light some aromatherapy candles for relaxation after completing all your cleaning tasks.
