Cleaning your home in a rush isn't exactly ideal, but sometimes you have to do what you have to do, especially when guests are coming over. That is why we want to share a few tips to help you quickly clean your home when you have unexpected guests coming over.

How to Quickly Clean Your Home When Guests You Didn't Expect Are on Their Way

We have all been there, our house is a mess, chores haven´t gotten done in a couple of days, and our crazy busy life hasn´t allowed us to vacuum or clean. Then, all of a sudden, the phone rings, the person we least expect is suddenly coming over. Worst of all they call to warn you they are on their way! If this is the case, don´t despair, the following tips can get you started and finished in no time so you greet your guest with less guilt.

10 Fast Cleanup Tips for When You Have Unexpected Guests Coming Over

  1. Grab a basket and go! Yes, as soon as you hear about your guest coming over you need to grab a basket, or plastic bag, or empty laundry bin that you can carry around the house and quickly run around the house picking up the dirty clothes you find. Then, empty it in the washing room, and go for round two. This time you will go through the house looking for smaller items like toys and other stuff that shouldn´t be where it is at. Then empty that next to the laundry in a different spot like a big bag. Finally, make one last run and put anything that isn´t in its place into the basket including big items and leave it along the other piles in the washing room so you can sort the items later and put them in their proper place.
  2. Dust at lighting speed. Grab a duster and go through the key areas of your home where dust is the most noticeable. Areas such as the television screen, glossy surfaces, or bookcases and furniture should be your main priority.
  3. Quickly run the vacuum. Promptly grab your vacuum cleaner and run it through the main areas of your house such as the living room and the guest room or the main entrance. Be careful not to get the cord tangled in something, you don´t want to have to clean up a bigger mess. Also, remember that a professionally cleaned carpet lasts a lot longer and is easier to clean and make it look like new so be sure to periodically contact Cleveland Cleanpro, here, and have them clean your carpet so you can avoid having to spend too much time keeping it clean.
  4. Spray air freshener. Grab a good smelling air freshener that isn´t strong and spray some in the rooms and areas where you feel is necessary. Go easy on it though, you don´t want to make a strong scent to make your guests uncomfortable.
  5. Put all the dirty dishes in the dishwasher. If you have a dishwasher then try to get all the dirty dishes into it before your guests arrive. If you don´t, then try to put away the clean dishes and at least pile up the dirty dishes neatly in the sink so they seem like less.
  6. Tackle the bathroom. Run to the bathroom and pretend you are using it, in case your guests arrive early. Grab disinfectant wipes and wipe the flushing handle, door knobs, and other surfaces.
  7. Wipe the sink and mirror. Make an effort to clean the sink and make the mirror look clean and sparkling by spraying glass cleaner and wiping it with a newspaper.
  8. Clean the toilet super quick. Add some Clorox and scrub the toilet, then wipe the seat and top with the disinfectant wipes.
  9. Double check the bathroom before you leave it. The bathroom is the one place most guests visit and judge even if thy do it unconsciously, so try to spend some timer here making sure you didn´t leave your bra hanging in the shower or your hair clogging the sink. Put away the dirty towel and place a scented candle or automatic releasing air freshener that is subtle yet pleasant in the bathroom.
  10. Breath, smile and act like you didn´t just have a cleaning marathon while you welcome your guest into your tidy home. For more tips and tricks on how to quickly clean your house for unexpected guests or any last minute cleaning, read this article on the Sunny Sweet Days page.
