Indeed, the holiday season is the most wonderful yet busiest time of the year. Your home is full of friends and family members coming around to celebrate Christmas and New Years. In that sense, changing and cleaning the sheets, duvets, and pillow covers after the festivities is important.

Air Ducts

Did you know that your air ducts can be caked with dirt within a few weeks? This is why professional duct cleaning is essential. Keeping your ductwork clean helps you and your family breathe easier. Plus, it can improve the efficiency of your HVAC system, resulting in better indoor air quality, cleaner home environment, and substantial energy savings.

Holiday Decorations

Christmas tree, holiday lights, and ornaments are truly heart-warming. However, these cheery elements collect dirt and dust. Here are some tips that can help clean them up before the New Year:

  • Wrap the duct tape around your hands to get rid of those pine needles.
  • Use pieces of cardboard in organizing your Christmas lights.
  • Wipe down holiday decorations using a dry microfiber cloth to keep them nice and shiny. Then, store all your items in an airtight box.
  • While you’re at it, rub some chalk on the tabletops, cutlery, and doors. Leave them for a few minutes and gently remove the chalk with a cloth, this will remove finger prints.


You’ll be amazed by how much food left in the fridge over the holidays. Though it can be challenging to get your fridge organized again, now is the time to give it a good cleaning. Start by taking everything out and dispose any old or expired food properly. Also, make a meal plan to consume all of the leftover food and spend less on groceries so you can get back on your budget after the holidays and into the New Year.

HVAC System

Last but definitely the most important thing to deep clean—your HVAC system! The harsh winter season brings extremely cold weather which makes it hard for your unit to function efficiently. This New Year, be sure to get an HVAC inspection to ensure your comfort unit won’t pose health and safety hazards to you and your family.
