How To Prepare Your Home For Guests

Get in touch with us!

We are open Monday – Sunday, 24 hours a day emergency services.

Before your guests arrive, you need to get your house in order for you to create a good impression. And if you have limited time left before your guests arrive, then you need to figure out what you need to do and prioritize your tasks so everything falls into (its proper) place.

Here is what you need to do when preparing your home for guests. Follow the tips listed below to impress your guests.

Know What Needs To Change

You need to know what you need to do before you do it. Look at your house from someone else’s perspective. Does your house look untidy? Does your floor need to be vacuumed or mopped? Is there too much stuff all over your room?

Evaluating what needs to be done will allow you to make a mental checklist of the tasks at hand. This way, you will be able to divide your load of work into smaller, more manageable tasks that can be accomplished faster. Also, you’ll be able to prioritize according to the list.

Make The Best Use Of Time

If you have invited your guests at a certain time, then the clock is ticking and you have no time to spare (or procrastinate). You need to focus on getting more work done in less time so that you’re able to get your home in great shape as soon as you can.

Do not waste too much time making something look too perfect in order to welcome your guests. Focus on what you need to do to get the job done.

De Clutter – Remove Anything That Isn’t In Its Place

Put extra stuff away and make sure you don’t have too many things lying around. Store things that aren’t required away in closets or shelves, in bags or in the attic. This can be done fairly quickly if you don’t waste too much time arranging those things. When preparing your home for guests, keep away anything that is not necessary so your home does not appear too messy.

Make Space For Your Guests

If your couch has too many cushions or if there are too many candlesticks or decorations on your dining table then you need to remove them to make space for the guests. Simplicity has its charm and so, wherever it’s possible, you should make space as it will make your home look clean and more inviting.

Make Sure Your House Smells Nice

You can get used to the way your house smells, but it is among the first things your house guests are going to notice when they enter your home. The way your home smells says a lot about your habits and the environment you live in. So make sure you use room sprays or scented candles to make your home smell nice.

Arrange Everything Needed Beforehand

If your guests are coming over for dinner, then you need to make sure you have arranged the table, the napkins, and the utensils before they arrive. If they are going to stay the night, then you need to make sure the guest rooms are clean and the bathrooms have all the toiletries they may need. Don’t forget to make sure there is space in the closet so they can keep their stuff in it. If they like watching movies and you intend to have a movie night, then make sure you arrange the movie you want to watch together and snacks beforehand.

If you have already planned what you are going to do, then you need to make sure you have everything that is needed to carry out those plans as arranging them after the arrival of your guests can waste time and become embarrassing.

Make Sure Your Kitchen Is Stacked

You’ll need food to serve your guests when they arrive and so you should get the things you need to prepare whatever it is that you’re going to serve beforehand. Get them as early as you can – you will need to spend some time on last minute cleaning and arranging so it’s not a good idea to leave grocery shopping at the last hour.

Samantha Cameron

 Jen and team were so great to work with. We had a hard task at hand removing adhesive residue from residential hard wood floors. We couldn’t find anyone else up for the task and NYC Steam Cleaning got the job done. Highly recommend this service and team for any floor, carpet, rug, upholstery cleaning needs.


Loren Bluvstein

5 star experience. I recently got a puppy who turned my new couch into her personal bathroom. I did a google search and found NYC steam cleaning. Luckily, I was able to make an appointment for the next day with this company. The entire cleaning took about 1 hour. My couch is brand new again, thank you!!

 I have hired them two times and have been highly pleased. Our pet was not very nice to this carpet and they were capable to get it clean. They also did my upholstery and the whole thing looks great. Their service charges are very rational and the workers have arrived within few minutes.
