Paso Robles’ California Mid-State Fair is just around the corner, and with many people from all over the country visiting, probably your home will be the center of some gatherings and parties.
After a super fun night with your friends and family, we have to tackle one of the most challenging tasks ever: cleaning. It is true that cleaning after a soiree looks hard and complicated; but fear not! With this guide we’ll help you develop a plan that will make it a breeze.
Air the rooms
Before you start tidying up, make sure to open all the windows in your house to dissipate and reduce most foul odors.
Dispose your waste
Pour the leftover liquids from all the glasses into a bucket, then empty that liquid into a strainer. These will help prevent spills, increasing your work. Then, dispose the leftovers into a plastic bag.
Pick-up the Mess
After disposing all the leftovers, there will be nothing left but trash. Gather everything with a broom to dispose it in plastic bags. We recommend taking the bags immediately to the corresponding trash bin. You’ll see less mess. 😃
We’re almost done! Now’s the time to vacuum the sofas and carpets, keep in mind that if there were any spills on them, it’s important to let pass no more than 24-hours before cleaning the area with the appropriate products (Or you could give us a call y’know?). Furniture should also be cleaned and disinfected, especially the tables and bars that were used for food and drinks during the party.
With all the trash collected and the furniture cleaned, the final step is to mop the house to completely eliminate any lingering odors and the sticky feeling on the floor. Now you just need to close the windows, take a shower, and enjoy a sparkling clean home.
