But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. In this post, we’ll give you some tips on how to get your home ready for Hari Raya. So read on and start planning!
Carpet cleaning is a must
Rugs and carpets need deep cleaning at least once a year especially those in the highest traffic areas. Besides dust, carpets tend to collect dirt particles, dead skin flakes, and microorganisms. Accumulated dust on the carpet pile may cause carpet to look dull and even discoloured.
Whether or not you are expecting guests, let’s get your carpets cleaned during this Ramadan. Cleaned carpets and rugs not only look more beautiful and smell fresher, they are also more hygienic. Especially during this pandemic period, keeping carpets cleaned and hygienic during the festive season should be a must to welcome the new year.
To ensure your carpet is thoroughly cleaned, contact De Hygienique professional carpet cleaning service provider and give your carpet a deep cleaning treatment.
Let’s set things right on this special day of the year, starting with the mattress that we sleep and wake up on each morning. The mattress is in fact the dirtiest soft furnishings in a home, so it’s important to use the occasion as a reason to deep clean the mattress. Hire a professional mattress cleaner to deep clean your mattress, and go for fresh sheets and blankets. You’ll enjoy a better night’s sleep this way.
Furniture & Upholstery
In preparation for the upcoming festive occasion, consider give your soft furnishings a deep cleaning to welcome the new year. Vacuuming sofas and chairs regularly is insufficient to be considered as deep cleaning. For a thorough deep cleaning, besides deep vacuuming, it’s best to give your upholstery a good wash or hire a professional upholstery cleaner to do it.
Declutter and Tidy Up Your House
It’s always best to declutter your home before Hari Raya to make your space feel like it’s best. This day sees huge gatherings of family and friends. Begin by getting rid of items that have been gathering dust, such as clothing that hasn’t been worn in a while. Old toys, kitchen utensils, toiletries, and shoes can also be discarded or donated. A thorough spring clean offers a great way to fully de-clutter!
Put Up Hari Raya Decoration
Having a well-decorated and thoroughly cleaned house would make everyone’s Raya celebration more enjoyable. After spring cleaning, go one step further and decorate your house with themed decorations. Start with displaying light decorations and green plants, or decorate your walls with religious-themed decorations to create a festive atmosphere in your home. Add new table runners and matching cushion covers to give your home a more complete look without spending too much money.
