How To Make A Great Impression If You’re Hosting Guests For Christmas

The holidays are coming. Are you ready for the festivities? As you get prepared for holiday happenings, consider prepping your home if you’re hosting guests. This means paying close attention to details and making the home feel as welcoming as possible to make a great impression. 

Whether you’re limiting the number of people over for the holidays or hosting close friends and family, you’re definitely going to want to make sure your home is clean and germ-free. Not only will properly cleaning your home make you and your guests feel more comfortable, but it will also make your home look sparkling clean and spotless. 

Clean Carpets 

If you have a big family, there may not be enough seating for everyone to sit around the Christmas tree. Kids naturally like to sit on the floor to play with their toys and will most likely sit on the floor to open their Christmas presents. 

To keep this area clean and free of bacteria, you’ll need more than just vacuuming. If you have a shampooer, this is a great way to freshen up your carpets and maintain cleaner carpets until your next professional cleaning. 

For heavily soiled carpets we recommend to call-in a professional. This is because a high-temperature solution penetrates all the way through the carpet and is then virtually entirely removed by superior suction. This translates into less time to have the job performed, faster drying times, and removes residue left over in your carpets from your shampooer.

Treat Odors

When we host Christmas gatherings, we want our guests to feel comfortable and settled. This is something that’s much easier to achieve when the carpet is looking clean and smelling fresh. You may vacuum regularly, but over time, carpets can absorb odors from dirt, spills and pet accidents. The smell of pet urine on Christmas Day just doesn’t quite live up to the expectations of fresh pies, baked cookies and mistletoe. 

To freshen up your carpets you’ll want to apply a generous amount of baking soda over the carpet and let it sit for 1-2 hours before vacuuming up. 

For deep odors such as pet urine we recommend to call-in a professional with the expertise, knowledge and products required to completely eliminate pet urine odors.

Clean Tile & Grout

Knowing that you’ve reduced bacteria and germs with professional tile and grout cleaning can make you feel like a responsible host, but scrubbing grout can be time consuming. You have enough other things to do getting ready for the holidays, so call on a professional to take care of this task for you.

Clean Upholstery

Removing stains, spots and build up of allergens will not only make you feel more comfortable in your own home, but your guests will feel more welcome also. You didn’t spend all that time decorating your beautiful home just to have a stained or worn-looking sofa take away from the festive ambiance.

As with carpet cleaning, shampooers with attachments are great at freshening up your upholstery fibers and removing surface stains. 

For a deeper cleaning, Indy Carpet Cleaning has the tools and equipment required to remove deeply set-in stains and bacteria, leaving your furniture fresh and inviting for you and your guests.

Clean Rugs

When you’re entertaining for the holidays, chances are high that you’ll have something get spilled on your rug. Even area rugs that appear to be clean can be filled with bacteria, allergens, dander, odors, and pet urine. Since rugs made of natural fibers can be more delicate than most carpet fibers, we recommend cleaning solutions and techniques that can only come from a professional. 

Professional cleaning removes pre existing bacteria and can include protective finishes that repel spills and stains. This can help you enjoy your time with family and friends without worry about what may or may not get spilled.
