Post Festival Cleaning

Celebrating all festivals consciously is highly important and at the same time, cleaning up after festivals are also important to keep our surroundings clean and tidy. Be it our 2 & 3 BHK apartments in Bangalore or flats in Trivandrum, we encourage our residents to take utmost care of their environment. Here are a few perfect post festival tips for cleaning.

Start outside
Cleaning inside our homes should be the first priority. But this year, try starting with outside the house. Bursting crackers and distributing sweets would have definitely left an array of dust to be collected. Make sure these waste paper and other boxes are collected. Do not wait for someone else to do the same as the cracker leftovers can be dangerous to the environment and affect you.

The Cracker Stains
Cracker stains can be a great trouble while cleaning. This is where the cleaning agents and bleach agents come in! Use them on the stains and let them dry for few hours and wash it off. The stain is sure to vanish the sooner you clean it! Things like Lemon, Kerosene, Thinner and other detergents are sure to wipe off any kind of stain.

Cleaning the house
A highly decorated house can be difficult to clean. First take down all the decorations and decide if you will need them for next year. If that's the case, pack them neatly. Make sure all the traditional lamps are removed and kept separately as they might still have oil in them.

Clean up the oil stains from the traditional diyas as they are easy to forget and we might slip in the same later. After packing the decorative items, removing the diyas and other decorations, dust the whole house to remove the residue from the crackers as they might still be there.

Finally mop up the whole place by using a pleasant cleaner or anti-septic which will make sure the house is spic and span!
