6 Housekeeping Tips for your Home image

Keeping your house clean will ensure it is always presented at its best, but if you're letting it out to guests you have to be sure you are getting right down to the details. We have a few tips that will help you reach every last corner, and even have a couple of things you might have missed!
 



One Step at a Time

An easy way to make sure every part of a room is covered is to start at one point and work your way around. Using a 'path' ensure that every bit is touched individually, meaning you won't miss any of the commonly forgotten areas like under the bed or down the sides of furniture.
 

All in the Detail

Just because the room looks completely clean, doesn't mean it is! Be sure to run a duster over forgotten areas such as skirting boards and bed frames. This is something your guests will notice.

A Clear View

Yes, your property has been completely cleaned from top to bottom, but what's that one thing that's letting you down? Spoiler, it's your windows! The daily elements can take their toll on the glass which ruins, and dims, an otherwise perfect home. Be sure to schedule in regular window washing to brighten your guests stay.
 

Change your Perspective

When you're engrossed in a job it can be easy to miss something small. It's a great idea to finish the clean, have a cup of tea (and biscuits of course), then pop back in for a final walk around. You'll be surprised at the small details that you missed the first time around!

Be our Guest

Once the property is completely clean, do everything your guests would do to truly get a feel for it. You might open the kitchen cabinet to a packet of biscuits falling on your head, or turn on the TV to find that the digital channels haven't synced properly. All of these small things can be huge inconveniences for a guest just looking to relax.
 

The Final Touch

Don't forget to add in small touches that show your guests you care. Popping in a fresh set of flowers, a few treats to welcome them, or even just a mint on their pillow, will make your guests feel welcomed to your property and start their visit off on the right foot - especially if they've travelled from further afield.
