The holidays always come as a surprise to most of us. You are usually so occupied with many things that the impending visits from friends and family are totally forgotten. Time slips away, and before you know it, you have just one hour to put your ‘affairs’ in order before they show up. 

Your home says so much about you, so you want your guests to walk into a clean and lovely space. This will set the perfect tone for the rest of their stay in your home. But how do you present a pleasant home within such a short time frame without wildly overwhelming yourself?

This article will help streamline your efforts by showing you the priority areas to clean and how to do so in the shortest time possible just before your holiday guests arrive. You will achieve the target without exerting much if you do these right.

Priority areas and how to clean them

We will now show you five priority areas to clean just before holiday guests arrive. These will require minimal exertion and include;

  1. High-Touch Surfaces

You must clean those surfaces that visitors touch more than others. You must ensure to wipe down and disinfect such surfaces for aesthetic value and because you want your guests to stay healthy by limiting the spread of germs. Some of the areas you want to quickly wipe clean include;

  • Doorknobs and door handles
  • Light switches
  • Remotes
  • Living room surfaces
  1. Entryway

Your entryway quite literally introduces your guests to your home, offering a first impression. There are some ways to quickly organize your entryway in anticipation;

  • Decluttering – This involves putting away all those things you’d usually leave out to create room for the guests. Also, place a clean rug at the entrance that says something nice. 
  • Lighting and Scenting – Dimmer lights and pleasant smells at the entrance will give your home a welcoming ambience.
  1. Bathrooms

This is one area you must not ignore because guests would likely call on the bathroom at some point. Here is a bullet list of quick things to do for the bathroom;

  • Ensure there is enough toilet paper.
  • Ensure that there is bathing soap.
  • Ensure that the plumbing fixtures, including the shower, bathtub, toilet and sink, are well-cleaned and disinfected.
  • Replace dirty towels with clean ones.
  1. Guest Rooms

This is mainly for overnight guests. Your guests will feel welcome to stay over if the guest room is in proper order. The simple ways to quickly prepare this include;

  • Use clean and fresh bedding for the bed. It helps to keep sheets, pillowcases and blankets handy for this eventuality.
  • Remove all the excess personal items from the reach and view of your guests. This will give guests more room to work with.
  • Ensure that the room is vacuumed and smells nice.
  1. Kitchen

This area is so important in hosting guests no matter the duration of their stay. Here, guests usually converse, try to help with the cooking, help themselves with beverages, or throw away trash. The simple ways to quickly clean are to;

  • Keep all visible surfaces clean.
  • Rinse and arrange the plates, glassware, platters, silverware and serving utensils needed for hosting.
  • Remove all sources of odors by washing dirty dishes and taking out the kitchen garbage.
