Clean up after the holidays

Best Ways to Clean Up After Holiday Gatherings

July 07, 20242 min read

Introduction: The holiday season brings joy and celebration, but it can also leave your home in need of a thorough clean-up. After the guests have left and the decorations are taken down, your home may look a bit chaotic. Don't worry! We've got you covered with these effective post-holiday cleaning tips.


  1. Declutter and Organize: Start by removing all decorations and disposing of trash. Put away any leftover food and drink containers. This initial step will make the rest of the cleaning process much easier. Sort through items to keep, donate, or discard, and store decorations neatly for next year.

  2. Vacuum and Sweep: Clean all floors and carpets to remove debris and dirt tracked in by guests. Make sure to vacuum under furniture and in corners where crumbs and dirt can accumulate. Consider using a carpet cleaner for a deeper clean, especially in high-traffic areas.

  3. Wipe Down Surfaces: Sanitize all high-touch areas such as countertops, doorknobs, and light switches. Use disinfectant wipes or a homemade cleaning solution to kill any germs and bacteria. Don't forget to clean table surfaces and chairs, as well as any areas where food was served.

  4. Clean the Kitchen: Focus on cleaning up any spills, washing dishes, and taking out the trash. Don't forget to wipe down appliances and clean the inside of the microwave. Empty and clean the fridge, checking for any leftovers that need to be discarded. Scrub the sink and faucet to remove any grime.

  5. Freshen Up the Bathrooms: Clean the toilets, sinks, and mirrors to eliminate any bacteria left behind. Replace used towels with fresh ones and restock toilet paper and soap. Clean the shower or bathtub, and mop the bathroom floor for a complete refresh.

  6. Dust and Polish Furniture: Dust all surfaces, including shelves, picture frames, and electronic devices. Polish wood furniture to restore its shine and remove any smudges or fingerprints. Don't forget to dust ceiling fans and light fixtures.

  7. Tackle the Laundry: Gather all linens, tablecloths, and any cloth decorations used during the holiday. Wash and store them properly for future use. Also, check for any clothing items that may need to be laundered after the celebrations.

  8. Refresh the Air: Open windows to let in fresh air and eliminate any lingering odors. Use air fresheners or essential oils to keep your home smelling pleasant. Consider using a dehumidifier to reduce excess moisture and prevent mold growth.

Conclusion: By following these steps, you can enjoy a clean and comfortable home after your holiday gatherings. For a deeper clean, consider booking a professional cleaning service with ATL Clean. We ensure every corner of your home is spotless and ready for your next event.
