The countdown to Christmas is on. Is your house ready? If not, have no fear. Here's a cheat sheet from HomeAdvisor to get your home holiday-ready in three easy steps.

Clean up inside

Hanging decor on top of a thick layer of dust is less than ideal. If you don't have time to do a proper cleaning before you deck those halls, you can schedule a one-time cleaning with a pro. A cleaning session with a professional service costs an average of $165, and you can learn ways to cut down on costs and get the most out of your service here.

Tidy up outside

Before you hire someone to hang those string lights, you should get things looking neat. The next not-so-easy task is cleaning the gutters and downspouts clogged with all those fall leaves. The average cost to get your gutters cleaned is $146, but it’s hard to pass up hiring a pro if you consider costs that could come with an injury associated with breaking out the ladder yourself.

Deck Those Halls

This is the fun part! When it comes to holiday lighting, it makes sense to start inside and work your way out. A pro holiday helper can help with everything from lighting on trees to mantels, wreaths, and even banisters on the interior of your home. Then you can task them with scaling the side of the house and making your house glow bright enough for the rest of the block to see. Local lighting experts can also tackle pathways, bushes, and other ground lighting. They can even create a fun motif if you have a vision of a Winter Wonderland stuck in your head.
