No matter whether you have celebrated your birthday, or you have had a big family reunion that you hosted for the first time, if last night was a bash chances are that you would not feel much like cleaning right now. Unfortunately, big parties when everybody is enjoying themselves tend to generate quite a bit of rubbish, dirt and stains. You would want to bring everything in order as quickly as possible and if you do not know where to start from, we are here to help.
The easiest way to go around any kind of cleaning job
Naturally, if you do not have the time and energy, or you just do not want to bother with such a tedious task, you can leave the after-party cleaning to a professional sanitation firm. You would just want to warn them in advance about the place and time they are supposed to come, and they will take care of all little jobs that make up the big project – taking out the trash, scrubbing the toilets, removing stains from the carpets and furniture, taking down decoration etc. Having pro cleaners handle the post-party sanitation is a good idea especially if you’ve to deal with removing stains from the upholstery in your living room.
In case you want to handle your after-party cleaning yourself, do the following things
The nature of your cleaning job depends on the type and the size of the party, the activities that were being carried out and many other factors. There are however several things that you need to do always.
- Start off by taking down the decoration if there is any. This activity tends to generate a bit of rubbish, and you would want to collect and take out all of this at once. Decide if you would want to keep some elements of it or you are going to throw away everything and then proceed accordingly.
- It is now time to take away the rubbish. First make sure that you have enough bags and crates to collect everything. Go through every room that the party took place at and bring the empty bottles, cans and other recyclables in one place. A party of any size creates much more rubbish than your household does on a regular basis, which is why you should not make compromises and recycle as much as you are able to – that is the environmentally responsible thing to do.
- Have in mind that all stains are easiest to remove as soon as they occur. If you spot a stain on the carpet or the upholstery, bring in the cleaning products and get to work. A great homemade stain remover is a mix of 1 part liquid dish soap and 2 parts 3% hydrogen peroxide – that’s all you will ever need.
- The most tedious and unpleasant task involved in an after-party cleaning is definitely sanitising the toilet. So, just hold your breath and get down to it. The faster you do it, the sooner it will be over. Make sure to use a clean brush and research some eco-friendly homemade recipes if you are into those.
