Second, happy (belated) Canada Day! We hope you enjoyed this day and spent some quality time with your family or your guests.
But now, it’s time to give your home a thorough cleaning, even for just a couple of hours. And what better time to clean your home than after Canada Day?
If you want to keep enjoying your weekend and start the week on the right foot, we recommend you check our maid service in Milton.
But if you want to take matters into your hands, let’s get started!
Remove Clutter From Your Home After Canada Day
Every time you perform a deep house cleaning, you would start with decluttering, ideally.
However, we know that you’re most likely short on time. This means that, in the worst-case scenario, at least you will have a decluttered home.
Put away items as you go and try to remove as many items as possible from flat surfaces such as countertops, your desktop, or your dining table.
This shouldn’t take you longer than 30 minutes. You might want to set a timer to finish this task quickly.
Start With Your Dishes and Laundry
Right after decluttering, one of the priorities would be to do your laundry and clean your dishes.
Get your curtains and bed linens in the washing machine so you can soak them with plenty of time and wash them right before the end of the day.
The same goes for your dishes. If you have greasy pans and pots, sprinkle some baking soda and add the juice of a lemon. With this trick, you will remove baked-on grease in the blink of an eye.
Tackle Your Bathrooms
This is a key element in cleaning. You could stand pretty much every area in your home to be slightly messy, everything except bathrooms.
Need a fantastic DIY cleaner for your bathroom? Mix equal parts of white vinegar and water, and add one or two drops of dish soap. This will quickly clean your surfaces.
Spray counters with disinfectant, especially the tub and the toilet. If you want to remove odors, sprinkle baking soda and let it sit overnight.
Clear Out The Fridge
This is a fantastic opportunity to clean your fridge. After Canada Day, we are sure you prepared some delicious meals. But now it’s time to clear out your fridge and reorganize it.
In this case, make sure to start by removing all contents of the refrigerator.
Then, use hot, soapy water and wipe down all the shelves, drawers, and handles. If you have the time, remove all drawers and shelves.
Vacuum and Mop Your Floors
If you have the chance, take your time and quickly clean your floors. This is one of the most important steps because your floors are the biggest giveaway that your house hasn’t been cleaned in a while.
Plus, if you had a lot of guests for Canada Day, your floors probably have some shoe prints and dust spread around.
Always start in the corner that is further from the entrance to that room, and start going back and forth until the entire floor is clean.
If you have carpet floors, spritz some white vinegar to remove odor.
How to Clean Your Home Faster Before After Canada Day
- Clean from the top down. Many people start cleaning the floors and then start cleaning other areas. If you do it this way, all the dust, grime and dirt from your surfaces will fall to the floor and mess up your work.
- Break your cleaning tasks into smaller chunks. Every cleaning task is daunting at first. Break it into smaller sub-tasks.
- Set up a timer. This is essential if you have just a few hours to clean your home. Divide your total number of hours into your cleaning tasks and assign 25 to 45 minutes to each one, with a 5-10 minute break between them.
- Listen to music or a podcast. This will make everything run smoother and you also get to enjoy or learn something new!
There it is! These house cleaning tips will help you celebrate Canada Day with a clean home.
