Spilt juice, grubby fingers and muddy shoes can leave your home looking a little worse for wear after the half term break. Whether you’ve been entertaining your kids and their friends, or you’ve enjoyed a week away in the sun, your home is bound to be in need of some TLC.

Fortunately, you don’t need to face the mess alone. We’re here to help with 4 top tips for cleaning up after half term…

1. Prevent the mess

Surprise, surprise – when it comes to cleaning up after half term, one of the best ways to save time is to prevent too much mess in the first place. Here are some simple ways to reduce the amount of mess in your home:

  • Get all visitors to take off their shoes
  • Place waterproof mats in play zones
  • Make sure you wipe up spills as soon as you can

2. Tackle the bedrooms

If you’ve had messy teenagers at home for the week, or your kids have been holed up in their rooms rather than out in the sunshine, the bedrooms in your home may need a clean. Tackle the bedrooms first and you may be surprised by the difference it makes to the look of your home.

Tidy up clutter, remove all their laundry from the floor and – once you can see it – give the carpet a good deep clean.

3. Move onto the kitchen

Sandwiches for the little ones, baking up a storm with the kids and nights in with friends and family can leave your kitchen in need of a clean. Wipe down the surfaces, clean out the fridge and scrub the floors ready for the next term. Don’t forget to enlist your little helpers to help you get the job done quicker.

4. Call the professionals

Your carpets are often hit the worst during half term. Whether it’s spilt drinks or trodden in mud from the dog’s paws, dirty carpets can significantly impact the overall look of your home. But sometimes, no matter how hard you try, vacuuming and spot cleaning simply doesn’t do the trick. That’s where we come in.
