How to Keep your House Clean for Showings

Keeping your house clean for showings can be stressful, I get it. But if you start with a clean slate and follow these 3 tips every single day I promise your house will always be show ready.

  1. Get in the habit of re-setting every room. If you brought in a cup of water, take it out. If you snuggled in with a blanket, put it away. I could go on, but I think you get the point. If you used it, put it away when you’re done.
  2. At the end of the night take 15 minutes and make sure there are no dishes in the sink, the dishwasher has been started, the floors have been swept and the trash has been taken out.
  3. Before you leave the house make sure the bed has been made, the breakfast dishes have been put away, the window treatments have been opened, the kitchen and bathroom surfaces have been wiped down and you’ve flushed all the toilets.

When you break down the cleaning to manageable chunks it shouldn’t get overwhelming. Last piece of advice, if you live with others, delegate and the process of keeping your house clean for showings gets even easier.
