Being prepared on cleaning our home for out-of-town visitors and overnight guests has always been sore subject for me. I lay everything out in my head but executing on the plan never goes as I had envisioned so those commercials you see of the Mom running around doing everything last minute….yeah that is typically me. While I may have a few flaws in how I execute my plans my initial idea is still pretty solid….. make a list. I tease my Mom all the time about her list making habits, they are a wee bit extreme, but they work.
List making is the best way to lay out your plans and to do’s when preparing your home for out of town guests. For your reference I created a check list that I use while preparing our home. You can download the checklist for yourself by clicking the link under the photo.
Vacuuming is such a integral part of preparing your home, whether it be for guests that are just visiting for an hour or for a few days, because you can scrub, clean to your hearts desire but if you have dog hair, spilled food, pieces of paper, dirt on the floor, etc, your house will still look and feel dirty. So if you happen to be strapped for time when preparing your home I suggest doing the vacuuming first! Then move room by room and pick up as you go. It may not be a spring cleaning amount of clean but you will have your basics covered! Here’s some awesome cleaning tips to help you too!
If you are picky like me, getting the hard to reach spots such as under the beds, corners and above the door frames is a must. While I’m sure no one really pays attention to those areas the job just doesn’t feel complete to me without doing those spots so having the BISSELL PowerGlide with Lift-Off Technology is a HUGE lifesaver for me. I love that with the touch of a button the vacuum separates and allows you to take wherever you please and reach those difficult areas that a standard vacuum doesn’t reach.
