The 4 Best Tips for Cleaning Up After Santa

Christmas DecorationsThe holidays are full of fun and presents and decorations and food—all of which leaves behind a good-sized mess. Don’t stress and don’t attempt to go it alone. When the jolly man in the red suit is long gone, be prepared to tackle that mess with these tips and the help of reliable cleaning services in Winston Salem, NC.

  1. Make Good Use of the Mess. A lot of what’s left after Christmas can actually be useful when it’s time to pack away the decorations. Use scraps of wrapping paper to wrap up fragile ornaments before packing them away. Wrap your strings of lights around the empty wrapping paper tubes to prevent tangles. Empty boxes are great for organizing decorations as well. And all those little twist ties that come out of the kids’ toy packaging are great for bundling electrical cords.
  2. Divide the Cleaning into Smaller Tasks. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the enormity of the post-holiday mess. Make it easier by tackling one small task at a time. Start with the tree, or the kitchen, or the outside decorations, and do just one item at a time. You can even reward yourself with small treats along the way as you complete each task like coffee and leftover Christmas cookies.
  3. Purge and Donate. If you didn’t clear out old clothes, toys, and decorations before Christmas (and even if you did), now is the time to clean out the closets and make room for the new gifts everyone received. Donate any gently used items and throw away anything that’s broken, has missing pieces, is torn, or stained. Now that you have so much more room, it’s easier to put away the decorations and new gifts.
  4. Hire Cleaning Services in Winston Salem, NC. Once the decorations and toys and clothes are all put away, it’s time to have a professional cleaning service come in and give your home a thorough cleaning. A maid service can tackle the tree needles, the stains on the carpet, the dust on the shelves, the kitchen, and every nook and cranny of your home that has seen the effects of the holidays. And you get to rest.
