Memorial Day is widely celebrated not only to commemorate those who lost their lives serving for the U.S. armed forces, but also to usher in the start of the summer. For many, Memorial Day is the first day of the year to cookout and invite people over as well as the first to enjoy the company of friends and family outside.
If you are hosting a cookout at your house for Memorial Day, your guests will most likely be walking in and out of your home, tracking dirt and other debris into your house. While you should not let this affect your festivities, you should be prepared to thoroughly clean your home after your guests leave. Professional residential cleaning services including carpet cleaning, upholstery cleaning, and hard floor cleaning can help clean and restore your home after Memorial Day.
Memorial Day cookouts often involve a variety of guests such as family, friends, kids, and pets who will all be walking in and out of your house and sitting on your furniture. You can put doormats near the entrances of your home to try to prevent some dirt and debris from being tracked in but ultimately you cannot completely stop outside debris from getting to your floors and furniture during a cookout. Not only are dirt and debris from outside a threat to your carpeting, flooring, and furniture, but so are the food and drinks being served at the cookout which can end up being spilled and staining your carpet or upholstery.
After your Memorial Day party, check your flooring, carpet, and upholstery for dirt and stains as you clean up your house and if you notice that any of these items need deep cleaning, you should contact ServiceMaster DAK for our residential cleaning services. Stains in carpeting and upholstery must be dealt with as soon as possible because stains will become more difficult to remove the longer you wait. It is generally a good idea to clean your flooring after a large gathering because even though there may not be visible stains on your carpet or hard surface floor, the unseen dirt accumulating in the crevices or carpet fibers from your guests walking in and out of the house can eventually cause deterioration.
If you want to host a cookout this Memorial Day, do what you can to try and prevent extra dirt and debris from getting tracked in the house but also plan on thoroughly cleaning your home after your guests leave.
