“April showers bring May flowers!” That may be what the saying is, but April showers also keep company from being able to enjoy the outdoors when they come to visit. With winter finally
shedding its cold coat, many are eager to get out of the house and visit with friends and family.
But is your home company ready? Washington Post suggests that you prepare for company all year round and has provided suggestions you may not even think to look for, such as plumbing
and guest beds.
Many sites have given tips about cleaning in a hurry. One tip is to not worry about cleaning what others won’t see. Although it may be true that a party guest isn’t going to check behind your shower curtain while visiting for a birthday party, it creates peace of mind to do a thorough job. Additionally, it allows you to feel confident no matter what comes up. Your master bathroom
may be upstairs and typically unused, but in a pinch, you don’t want to worry about an untidy bedroom and dirty toilet.
Another quick cleaning myth is to just pick up clutter. The idea is that if the room is picked up, guests may not notice if it is clean or sanitized. Fresh Nest recommends you think about the
details. You may forget about discolored sinks and cobwebs in the corners, yet dust on the baseboards can make the whole floor look dingy and a discolored sink isn’t inviting when wanting to wash up.
A closed up home may develop smells, especially if the weather hasn’t allowed you to open up windows and shake out rugs. Check to make sure that your garbage can hasn’t developed any funky odors. The kitchen is a major culprit of holding odor so check the fridge and sink, as well.
Don’t forget the bathroom! The floor around the toilet often develops a stink, and is overlooked during regular cleaning. Without proper cleaning, attempting to mask these smells with sprays will not eliminate them, but will definitely make it worse. If you have pets, make extra time to do a deep clean in rooms the pet may spend a lot of time.
Last but not least, try to schedule time to do deep cleaning throughout the house all month long, to prevent a last minute rush.
