If you’ve finally decided to have a small (or big) gathering at your home after this long and challenging period, there’s plenty of planning to do. In addition to preparing everything for your guests, you also need to think ahead and pay special attention to properly cleaning your home the following day

This is particularly important after facing the pandemic challenges in the previous year. While you may be eager to go back to your normal routine, it’s still important to adhere to some simple, yet effective safety guidelines.  

So, if you are planning to throw a party in Napa, CA, you can follow some tested methods from expert cleaners and learn how to scrub your home properly in 24 hours.

How to clean up after a party?

Post-party cleaning does not have to be as stressful as it may seem at first glance. It is possible to clean your home effortlessly like an expert in a few easy steps. Here are 10 simple tips to get your home in order:

1. Go room-by-room

Wherever you start cleaning, the advice that will make the whole process easier and save you time and energy is to clean one room at a time. It is good to have a system and know where to start cleaning.

2. Collect broken glass

One of the first things to do is to collect broken glass if there is any. Be careful and collect the biggest pieces first and do not forget to check under the furniture. After that, sweep the smaller fragments and vacuum the area.

3. Clean up the kitchen

Clear out and clean the countertops, removing any leftovers that we’re not in the fridge. Collect all the dishes and bring them to the kitchen. Put them in the dishwasher or pile them up, soak first, and wash manually. To get some extra space for your dishes to dry on your countertops,  you can lay out a cloth or a towel.

4. Clean the bathroom

Scrub the toilet and the sink with warm water and a cleaner. Disinfect everything with a spraying solution and polish all the glass surfaces and mirrors.

5. Get your living room back to normal

Dust the surfaces lightly and remove any clutter or trash. Put the furniture back in place and wipe it with a cloth. Check if there are any stains and make sure to remove them properly, which brings us to the next tip. 

6. Treat spots and stains

If someone accidentally spilled a drink on the carpet or table, do not despair. Put some shaving cream over the stain, wait a few minutes, and carefully dab and pick up with a cloth that is dipped in soda water. If some of your friends forgot to put their glasses on coasters, just rub the marks with a damp cloth.

However, if you’re not sure how to properly remove a stain, you should double-check to see what the correct method is. This may vary depending on the type of stain, upholstery material, etc. 

7. Take out the trash

Collect all of the debris thoroughly in a big plastic bag. Collect everything from paper towels and leftovers to empty bottles or broken glasses. 

8. Sweep the floors

After you have done all of the above and cleaned your home, the penultimate step is to sweep or mop the floors and vacuum the carpets.

9. Disinfect your home

This is one of the most important steps after hosting a party. Since you’ve invited a number of people into your home, you need to properly disinfect the surfaces and other areas in your home. Of course, make sure to follow the right steps when disinfecting your home

10. Freshen it up

Since your house now looks like new, why not invite a refreshing scent too? Take a couple of lemons, cut them in half, and arrange them randomly around the house. It is that simple and it works every time.
