Are you totally focused on cleaning your house from top to bottom? If so, maybe you already have a plan for things like cleaning the kitchen, dusting the furniture, scrubbing the bathrooms, and making your windows sparkle. Maybe you have even already attacked the utility room and the garage. That leaves only fabric articles that need attention. Here are some ideas that might help.
Arrange For Carpet Cleaning Services
Maybe you are very consistent about vacuuming your carpets. And, it might be that you have even rented carpet cleaning equipment to do the job yourself. At the end, though, you know that the carpets throughout your house aren't really deep cleaned.
Think about arranging for carpet cleaning services where professionals will have the right equipment to truly clean your carpets. Maybe there is a stain that you haven't been able to remove. If so, the cleaners will more than likely have a cleaning solution that will remove the stain without damaging the carpet.
Do you have pets? Even if they are housebroken, there still might be times that those pets had accidents. If that's the case, there is probably an unpleasant lingering odor that you haven't been able to remove. The carpet cleaners will know just how to take care of your carpets in a way that there won't be that odor remaining at all.
Think of having the carpet cleaners return to your house on a periodic basis. For example, if you're having the carpets cleaned right before Christmas, your next cleaning could be done in March or April, just in time for spring.
Clean Other Fabrics In Your Home
How long has it been since your formal drapes have been cleaned? And, what about your furniture upholstery? The carpet cleaners might offer both of those services. If not, they will more than likely be happy to recommend a service that does. Do you have fabric curtains in the kitchen or in any of the bedrooms? Now might be the best time to wash those, too.
What about throw pillows? Can they be put through the washing machine? Even if that will work, think of air-drying them.
Of course, the sheets on your beds might be nice and clean. But what about the sheets that are stored in the linen closet and not used regularly? Since you are focused on cleaning the fabric items in your house, now would be the perfect time to wash the linens, too. After all, you might have unexpected out-of-town guests staying at your house over the holidays.
