Whether you leave the house for vacation or a visit to a relative, the last thing you would want to do is to leave your house without so much as giving it a proper scrubbing. You wouldn’t want to come back to the same mess, so here are a few things to bear in mind before leaving the house.
Tidy up the bedroom
Your bedroom is the last room in the house that you want to see in shambles. Whether you’re leaving or coming home, you’ll always want your bedroom to be in the best possible shape. So, when you’ve already arrived home, a clean bedroom would be a sight to behold.
Change the bedsheets and your pillows if they’re giving off a bad odor. Strip them down and let them catch some fresh air before you depart. It doesn’t take too much time to make your bed, so make the effort to fold your sheets and flatten out the creases on your blanket.
Scrub down the bathroom
This one’s a no-brainer, but don’t worry too much about it, so long as you’re able to give this area a proper treatment by scrubbing the corners until they’re free of mold. Use a disinfectant and make sure to scrub in between the tiles. You might want to scrub the showerhead and bathtub as well.
Do your laundry in advanced
Ideally, you will want to prepare your luggage at least a week before you’re set to depart. But aside from packing your clothes, you might want to finish off all the dirty laundry that’s left in your room. There should be no article of clothing left strewn all over your room. Otherwise, you’d come home to the pungent smell of dirty laundry. Throwing them into a washing machine should do the trick, but if you’re cut for time, consider going to the laundromat.
Clean up your kitchen
Your kitchen is most likely going to have leftover food that’s begging to be scrubbed off of the dishes that are left piling on your kitchen. That said, you may have to give your kitchen a thorough cleaning by throwing away food scraps and unclogging the sink. You may also have to seal up any gaps or holes that rats and cockroaches can use to gain entry. Lastly, don’t forget to empty out the fridge of rotten and expired food. Keeping them stored there will lead to the development of mold.
Take out the trash
You don’t want to be leaving any trash in your waste bins or trash bags or wherever it is you use to dispose of your garbage. Sure, no one likes to take out the trash, but this simple measure can help get rid of bad odors and prevent pests from invading your home while you’re away. Just make sure to separate the plastics from the organics.
These tips should help you achieve a cleaner home as you prepare to depart, but if you want to focus more on the journey, then let a professional cleaning company do all these and more for you!
