The holiday season can be a joyous time. Spending time with family and friends at holiday parties is a great time to let off steam and enjoy yourself–unless, of course, you’re the one hosting the party. It’s true, hosting holiday parties can be quite stressful. In the midst of cooking all the delicious holiday-themed hors d’oeuvres, decorating every square inch of your home and making sure the kids are on their best behaviour, it can be hard to find time to think, let alone make sure the house is also spotless.

When it comes to cleaning in advance of holiday parties, just your regular chores might not be enough. There will be dozens of people in your home, some nosier than others, who will expect a high standard of clean. That means no quick vacuum job, no skipping the windows, and yes, even the top of the fridge will need to be dusted. Thankfully, you don’t have to do it all alone. Ottawa home cleaning services are there to make sure your house looks flawless, letting you check that item off your holiday party to-do list.

Imagine how much less stressful party preparation would be if you didn’t have to worry about the cleaning. You could focus all of your attention on creating show-stopping food or never-to-be-forgotten festive décor.

Here are some of the things an Ottawa home cleaning service can help you out with:


It doesn’t matter how engaging your party is, at some point, someone is going to look down, and when they do, what are they going to see? Hopefully it won’t be unidentifiable stains made by some past child-related spill. To help make sure your carpets are suspicious-stain free, an Ottawa cleaning service can steam clean and Scotch guard your carpets, just to be safe. That way, if any of your guests accidentally tip a wine glass or drop their plate of cherry cheesecake, your carpets won’t remember it later.


You may not think about how clean your windows are before you host a holiday party, but they do matter. Make sure your holiday lights are reflected only in spotless windows by hiring an Ottawa cleaning service to make sure your windows are clean inside and out.


Even though TV commercials and magazine ads might have you thinking it, no one actually lives a minimalist lifestyle. However, your holiday décor will shine even brighter if it – and not your clutter – is the centre of attention. Luckily, an Ottawa cleaning service can help you find new, less visible homes for your excess things.

Preparing for holiday parties is stressful enough. Help yourself out by hiring an Ottawa cleaning service to take care of the cleaning for you, so you’ll have more time to be the “hostess with the mostess”.
