December has arrived and Christmas is fast approaching. For many of us, it truly is the most wonderful time of the year and we’re getting excited to prepare for the festive season. Whether that entails decorating, baking, gift giving, carol singing or anything else, you’re going to want to make sure that your home is in top shape throughout this season. You want it to be comfortable and cosy and presentable to any guests you may be entertaining. So, before you get the Christmas tree and tinsel out, it may be time to deep clean your house. This will give you a fresh slate to work with and will give you the best results before you dive head first into decorating. Here are a few steps you might want to take to really get your home squeaky clean!

Clean Your Carpets

It’s the end of the year and chances are your carpet has been put through a lot over the past 12 months or longer. Dirt walked in from outside, pets mucky paws, spills of drinks and food - the list of potential damage to your carpet goes on. Sure, you can run the vacuum around to pick up surface dirt and dust. But this won’t really clean your carpets. Instead, to get your carpets looking fresh and brand new again, you’re going to have to take some special extra steps. It’s time to really clean your carpets. Now, you could get a sponge, bucket of water and cleaning solution and wash the whole carpet by hand, but this is going to take a long time and may use too much water, resulting in sodden carpet that can begin to smell. Instead, use a professional carpet cleaning machine, or bring in professional carpet cleaners to clean the floor on your behalf. You’ll be truly surprised by the results and the amount of dirt that will be drawn from your carpet. If you find an infestation of any sort, you may want to consider solutions. For carpet moths, you could use a treatment like carpet moth killer spray.

Clean Your Windows

Many of us like to decorate our windows with lights at this time of year. But before clipping them up, you should clean the windows thoroughly. You can always use professional window cleaners - especially for high up windows that are difficult to safely reach yourself. When it comes to cleaning the inside of your windows, you will need

a window cleaning solution
a window cleaning cloth or rag
a window cleaning squeegee

Then, simply spray the window with your solution, wipe it down thoroughly and remove all dirt. This should help to keep your windows sparkling.

These are just two key areas of focus for your deep clean. There are plenty of other tasks that you’re likely to need to complete before the decorations can come out. But hopefully, this will get the ball rolling in the right direction and give you some great results!
