Winter-proof your Front Hall

When the seasons change, the front hall often takes the brunt ofit – with clutter and dirt piling up from the word go. Hereare professional house cleaning tips on winter-proofing the fronthall from the experts at MOLLY MAID. De-cluttering and reorganisingwill help to keep the space clean and prepare for winter too.

  • Remove everything from the hallway. Clear any countertops,remove footwear and mats, and any other front hall mats. Clear outcoats, umbrellas and umbrella stands.
  • Wipe all surfaces, including doors and frames. Wash the floors,windows and any mirrors. It’s great to have a mirror in the fronthall too, so you can have a last look before you leave – plus itadds light.
  • Vacuum the whole area including shelves, corners and hard toreach places.
  • Survey the area and consider any changes that would helpaccommodate items easier, such as coats and shoes. Do you need acoat rack? An umbrella stand? A new mat for shoes? Consider hangingup a peg rail for coats, especially if you have children.
  • Purge items that you have removed. Store summer sportsequipment and other summer items elsewhere. Go through coats andfootwear carefully.
  • It’s a good idea to limit the number of pairs of shoes for eachperson; do the same with coats. An over-the-door shoe holder isperfect for organising footwear.
  • There should be a container for incoming mail and keys, so youalways know where they are. 
  • Plan on where everyone will keep their winter wear such asmitts, scarves and hats. If you have a cupboard then providecontainers to keep the mess at bay.
