Pre-Christmas Top 6 Clean-up Tips

Every year the lead-up to Xmas seems to go more quickly and we are left with very little time before our summer holidays begin. Pre-Christmas is the time when we like to have a clean-up around the house and section, as the days are longer and we have time to ensure our homes are looking their best for the Christmas holidays.

Here are our top 6 tips

1/. Recycle
41% of us make an extra effort at Christmas. Check your local authority website to see what can and can’t be recycled.

2/. Fridge Clean
Make room for your Christmas food shop and get rid of the chutney that has been lurking in the fridge since last Christmas!

3/. Give Your Carpets a Vacuum
And when you’re vacuuming down the side of the sofa remember to keep your fingers crossed that you will discover some money.

4/. Dust Surfaces
Here’s a cool tip. Put the soft brush attachment on your vacuum cleaner to get rid of most of the dust. Then follow with a microfibre cloth or duster.

5/. Mop the Floors
This is essential to get rid of stains and any stubborn marks that your vacuum won’t lift.

6/. Window Cleaning
What is the point of filling your windows with fairy lights if they can barely be seen through the dirty windows?

You Can Avoid This Bin Fee!

Poor or dangerous site access is one of the most common reasons why a skip supplier cancels the delivery of a skip and you get charged with a fee!

Here is what you should check before hiring any skip. First of all, make sure there are no overhead wires, trees, branches or structures such as house eaves that block the delivery of the skip. Drivers will usually refuse to place a skip if there is a chance or risk of injury or damage. Walk around the area the truck needs to use to deliver the skip bin and look at any potential problems.

Driveways must be at least three meters wide for a truck to drive down to place a bin. Please check nothing is blocking your driveway and please ensure that no cars are blocking your driveway. Suppliers run to tight schedules because, as the old saying goes, “Time is Money”. The driver cannot afford to sit and wait while cars are moved. Quite often the skip supplier will go straight to their next booked job, taking your skip with them! If you follow these basic guidelines you will avoid unwanted hassles and charges.
