How to Get Your Home Ready for Christmas

Christmas is an exciting time of year. Food, family and fun are all things to look forward to, but getting your house guest-ready is often a dreaded task. Hiring home cleaning services might be the easiest way to get your home cleaning done in time, and our trusted team here at Maid in Melbourne offers thorough one-off cleans to help get your house ready. That being said, there are a few things you can do yourself to get your home ready for Christmas guests and celebrations.


Out with the old and in with the new. Make room for all of the merriment, gifts, and guests by decluttering your house from top to bottom. Go through with a rubbish bag or sorting boxes and throw away or donate anything you haven’t used in six months or more. It will feel great to get rid of the mess, and it will make it so much easier to fit everyone and everything into your home.

Clean the Oven

Here’s a task that gets ignored and forgotten for far too long. You’re going to be using your oven to cook a lot of food, so get it ready for the task by giving it a thorough cleaning before your guests arrive. It will help you feel organised and ready to take on the holiday season and the cooking that comes with it.

Clean Every Surface

Grab a bucket of hot water and wipe every surface you have in your home including television tops, window ledges, skirting boards, and the spots on your walls. Give everything a thorough wipe down, and your sparkling house will thank you for it.

Polish Your Silverware

Get ready for the holiday feast by making your silverware look like new. Give everything a spruce and a polish so that your table settings look as delectable as the food does on Christmas day.

Get Your Cleaning Supplies Ready

With every full house comes spills and messes that can’t be avoided. Make sure you’re prepared for the worst by ensuring you have enough rags, clothes, and cleaners ready to go. You can never have too much paper towel.

Get Your Carpets Treated

Whether you decide to do it professionally or take on the task yourself, giving your carpets a good thorough cleaning is an excellent way to prepare for guests. It can be easy to forget just how much dust and grime carpets see on a regular basis, but once you give them a good cleaning, you’ll be amazed at the difference it makes.
