5 Tips for Quick Cleaning

Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning

Sears Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning can help you get a deep clean for stubborn carpet and upholstery stains or dirty, stained, tile and grout. Some customers prefer to deep clean prior to having houseguests, while others wait until after the guests leave to clean the morsels of festive foods ground in the couch and carpeting. If you only have a short amount of time before company arrives, here are tips for a quick clean.

1. Entry area – make sure to inspect what your guests see when they enter your home. Clean glass on the door, remove shoes, keys and mail. Broom sweep the entry, wipe down scuffs on the door and sanitize door handles and light switches.

2. Bedrooms – Make beds, removing laundry, dump trash and quickly dust furniture.

3. Bathrooms – Unless you have overnight guests you may not need to focus on the showers. Scrub the toilet from the top to the floor. Wipe counters and clean mirrors. Tuck toothbrushes, toothpaste, hair brushes in a cabinet to remove clutter. Restock toilet paper, hand soap and hand towels. Sanitize light switches and door handles and clean the floors.

4. Kitchen and Dining Room – Take a seat at your dining table and look around. What will your guests see as they are sitting? Remove clutter from countertops, wipe down appliances and unload the dishwasher so meal cleanup is quick and easy.

5. Carpet & Upholstery – Spot-clean carpet & upholstered furniture. Use a lightly dampened cloth to spot clean upholstered chairs . Vacuum the main areas where people will gather. Use vacuum attachments to reach corner cob webs, clean the steps and clean air duct vent covers.

While just thinking about all of this is exhausting, if you set the timer and focus on the most visible messes, you will surely add a little shine to your home before the doorbell rings. If everyone leaves their leftovers in your carpet or on your upholstery, our Sears Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning team has a two-step deep clean process to get your home back together in no time.
