5 Essential Cleaning Tasks To Do Before Leaving For Vacation

vacation cleaning tasks

Ready to go on that well-deserved trip? Don’t forget to give your home the attention it needs before you leave. 

A few vacation cleaning tasks before your departure can help ensure a welcoming and stress-free return. 


Before you head out on your vacation, take some time to declutter and organize your living space. 

Clear unnecessary items from countertops, tables, and other surfaces. Don’t forget to tidy up your living areas by putting away clothes, shoes, and other belongings as well.

A clutter-free environment not only helps keep your home cleaner but also provides a more relaxing atmosphere to come back to.

Deep Clean the Kitchen

Giving your kitchen a thorough clean before leaving is essential to avoid returning to any unwanted surprises. 

Start by cleaning out the refrigerator, and disposing of perishables that might expire while you’re away. Wipe down all surfaces, including countertops, appliances, and cabinets. 

Remember to also empty the dishwasher and sink of dirty dishes and ensure there’s no food left out that could attract pests.

Launder Linens and Towels

Fresh linens and towels make a significant difference when you return from a vacation. Strip the beds and wash all bed linens before you leave. 

Don’t forget to launder towels as well, so you’re welcomed by a clean and inviting bathroom. 

Secure the Garbage Disposal

The last thing you want to deal with after a relaxing vacation is a foul smell from the garbage disposal. 

Run a few ice cubes and citrus peels through the disposal to eliminate any residual odors. 

Additionally, take out the trash before leaving to prevent any potential messes or odors from developing during your absence. 

This simple step ensures a pleasant return home and saves you from dealing with unnecessary vacation cleaning tasks.

You could also consider hiring the services of a cleaning company to take care of matters before going on vacation.
