7 Cleaning Tips to Prepare for Holiday Guests

December 20, 2019

The holidays are a joyful time of year. It’s a wonderful time to enjoy delicious desserts, great food, and time off from work or school. It’s a time to spend time with your homes in Houston TX neighbors and the ones you love while creating lasting memories with them. It’s also a time to get your home clean if you will be playing host this year. Use these seven cleaning tips to prepare for your holiday guests.

  1. Remove clutter – You should get rid of clutter as soon as possible. Put things in their rightful place and throw out items you no longer need or want. This will help you avoid misplacing items you really need or keeping items you should throw away.
  2. High-traffic areas – The kitchen and bathrooms will be a busy place this time of year. Clean the countertops, sweep the floors, wipe down the faucets and surrounding areas to help keep this area looking good.
  3. Clean the walls – You may not think to clean your walls. But these get dirty too! Wipe down the walls an remember to clean around the baseboards, light switches, and door handles to get rid of dirt, smudges, and fingerprints.
  4. Clean and fresh linens – Overnight guests will need someplace to lay their head at night. Put a fresh set of sheets on the bed, blowup mattress, or sleep sofa, and have extras standing by in the hall closet or a dresser drawer just in case you need to swap them out.
  5. Keep it smelling fresh – More people in your home means extra smells too! Use air fresheners, candles, or potpourri to help aromatize your home and keep it smelling fresh.
  6. Daily shower cleaning – Once your guests arrive, there will be more people taking baths and showers. Wipe down the shower after everyone has washed up to help keep it cleaned daily.
  7. Remove the shoes – It’s no secret that shoes can harbor lots of dirt, grime, and germs. Employ a no shoes policy to help keep your home cleaner and avoid tracking things inside.

We hope these tips will help you prepare your home for holiday guests. Which tips do you plan on using? Sandcastle Homes wishes our homes in Houston TX homebuyer’s a happy and joyous holiday season!

"We are so grateful to have found Sandcastle Homes! They’ve made the home-buying process so much easier and more enjoyable than we could have imagined. They are responsive, respectful, and always put the customer first. We truly appreciate the speed and accuracy with which they’ve addressed any concerns we’ve brought up throughout the process and can’t wait to officially own our first home. Sandcastle has a team that clearly values one another as much as they do their customers, and you can feel a sense of community when working with them."

"Sandcastle did an amazing job with my house. They came through on everything they promised. Jose Salas, the construction manager, is very helpful even after we closed on the house. He goes above and beyond. Getting to meet the owner, Salomon, during the closing was a great experience as many other builders don’t do this. We love our house and the quality of it!!"

Enrique and Judith

"We just moved into our new home by Sandcastle. Since the beginning of the process the whole Sandcastle team paid great attention to our requests and responded rapidly. We were lucky to get in contract in time for us to choose colors, kitchen design, finishes and other and all our requests were reflected in our new house. At the end of the closing, the team always kept the same great attitude towards us and helped us with any question or request. We would say one of the greatest things about Sandcastle is that they really back up what they sell: best price, best service, best quality in town. We ended up extremely pleased with our new house."

Andres and Marcela

"I just moved into my new Sandcastle home and I think it’s a wonderful place to live. They have been very helpful, particularly Lynette and Steve. From the owner Mike Salomen down, it has been a truly positive experience. I would highly recommend anyone who wants to buy a new home that is built of high quality to consider this home builder."
