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.

What will you need?
We are going to get a “Moving Kit” that will allow us to have a better organization before, during and after the move, this will be composed of:
Boxes of different sizes and materials
Newspapers or foam sniffers
Organize items by room, value and size
This step is one of the most important because it will allow you to speed up the packing process and prevent you from forgetting anything.
It is important to prioritize official documents, money and jewelry, which you can keep in the folders and place them in the safest place you have. After this, concentrate on the smaller and more fragile objects, which you will cover with foam or newspaper and once you are done with them, seal and label the boxes where you will place them.
Once you have packed the documents, valuables and fragile objects, we recommend you to go room by room organizing the clothes on hooks and put them in black bags to prevent them from dusting in the process.
Finally, we will start to disassemble the large pieces of furniture, taking care to organize the pieces in a good way so that they do not get lost or mixed with other furniture.
Ask for a reliable moving team
Look for recommendations on the Internet, with family or friends who have recently moved and find the best moving option, and once the big day arrives, remember to take your documents and valuables with you. The moving team will surely have a trained team, so just make sure you don’t forget anything and start a new adventure.
