First Impressions: Your Walk & Entryway

Written by 

Are holiday guests on their way? You’ve probably got house cleaning on the list already, but does that include your entryway and the walk up to your house? These are the very first areas your guests will see, so to make the proper first impression, make sure these areas have been cleaned.

Good maid services will do some of the work for you: the entryway floor will get vacuumed, surfaces in the area will be dusted, and the window in your door will be cleaned, streak-free. There are a few things you have to do yourself, though. Read on for some tips that will help the front of your house be holiday ready!

The Walk

The best way to determine what needs to be done in your front yard is to pretend to be a guest. Go out to the side of the road and walk up to your door the way you imagine your friends will as they enter your home.

While walking, let your eyes drift to the area in front of the door. Is there any trash? Toys? Clutter? Now is the time to get rid of those things, long before guests come. Then take a look at the porch and the door: does the porch need to have old leaves swept off of it? Does the outside of the door need washing?

Taking care of these things will leave an impression of cleanliness and charm on every person who comes to the door.

The Entryway

With the help of your maid service, this is a little easier. The main thing you want to be on the lookout for is clutter, shoes (kids are notorious for leaving their shoes in front of the door!), and dirt on the floor. Keep it picked up before your guests arrive, and they will feel more than welcome in your home.

Don’t forget, though: in the rush of getting everything cleaned, baked, and bought, don’t forget to spend time with the people you care enough about to invite to your home!
