Pre-Vacation House Cleaning Check list

With the school year coming to an end soon, it means summer vacations are about to be in full swing.

With the excitement running high, it can be easy to get wrapped up in what needs to happen for that much desired summer getaway trip and forget what needs to happen before you head out.

To help with some of that, we’re sharing our  Pre-Vacation Cleaning Checklist so that you have one less thing to worry about – not only right now – but while on your trip as well.

1. Dishes

After a long day of traveling to get home, the last thing that you will want to do is a load of dishes.

Rather than leaving a sink full of dirty dishes, make sure to wash, dry, and put everything away before you head out.

Another tip is that the night before, either eat out or use paper plates so that you don’t add things to your endless to-do list.

2. Laundry

When you get back from your trip, there’s a good chance that the majority of your clothes need cleaning, depending on how long the trip was.

Rather than coming home to even more dirty laundry than what’s in your suitcase, clean, dry, and fold the rest of your clothes, so you have something clean to wear when you return home.

Besides clothing, don’t forget to focus on your bed sheets and towels as well. Trust us. You won’t be sorry that you did. Additionally, if you’re going to be away for a good while, fold away your bed linen and strip your bed of all sheets and bedding, so they don’t accumulate dust while you’re away.

3. Common Areas

You don’t need to feel the pressure to deep clean the common areas before you leave, but you’ll want to clean these areas so that it can make coming home more enjoyable.

The first step is to tidy up all of the rooms. Dust, vacuum (or sweep), and wipe down the bathroom. If you notice trash or recycling, pick it up as you go.

Follow the pre-vacation checklist, and you’ll be amazed at the difference, both beforehand and when you come home after a long trip.
