Roses are red, chocolate is sweet – but nothing says ‘I love you’ more than a home that is neat. This Valentine’s Day, sweep your significant other off his or her feet with a tidy house using these tips:
Declutter. You’ll be amazed at how much neater your home can look simply by removing debris on the floor and counters. If you don’t have time to clean each room, focus the most on where your honey spends time – the living room, bedroom, bathroom and kitchen are good places to start.
Do the dishes. Not only do dirty dishes create an eye sore, but they can also produce an odor. If you’re planning to cook a meal for the night, or if you have dishes from days before, set the pace for a romantic evening by washing any dirty dishware and emptying the sink.
Chase away pet hair. Your furry friends are perfect in every way – except for the amount of hair they leave around the house. To remove stubborn pet hair from your furniture, use a vacuum or a lint roller. Need a quick fix and don’t have either of those tools handy? Try using other around-the-house materials, such as double sided tape on a paper towel roll to get the job finished.
Set the mood. Highlight the effort you’ve put in by lighting a candle or two. Candles produce a pleasant aroma as well as create romantic lighting for the evening. A sweet-smelling home can enhance your tidy space, and it can also distract from any areas you didn’t have a chance to attend to.
Call in a cleaning service. If you’re pressed for time or are daunted by the thought of house cleaning, hiring a professional cleaning service can be both a gift to you and your significant other. Give your closest Two Maids & A Mop a call today for high-quality cleaning and a package that will meet your needs. With a clean and clutter-free home, you will impress your significant other and have Cupid squarely on your side this Valentine’s Day.
