What Should I Do to Prepare for the Super Bowl
If it’s a party you want and your friends have skirted the responsibility to you to host, then you’ll want to make sure everything is in order. Sometimes a good start is to clean your house beforehand, that way you won’t be combining your normal everyday junk with the junk that is sure to come from hosting a game day party.
How to Prepare Your House for the Super Bowl
While it seems obvious, preparing your house for a big event should always start with a nice cleaning beforehand. Make sure the areas where guests will spend the most amount of time are tidy and organized. Got some old furniture you don’t think will be of much use?
Consider some furniture removal service options. Once the place is nice and tidy, go ahead and start setting up. Maybe you go for a football-shaped pizza? Whatever you decide, make sure to lay out whatever snacks, food and drinks you may want to have.
Your Super Bowl Party Checklist
Make a list and check it twice. Preparing for the big game, like the Super Bowl, doesn’t have to be a stressful experience. After all, at the end of the day, it’s just a game. Follow these steps to make sure your house is ready for the gameday crowd.
- Organize the living room: Most likely, this will be the area where your guests will watch the game. Do you like a traditional living room set up or do you want to try some stadium seating? The options are endless.
- Don’t forget the kitchen prep: When it comes to parties, the Super Bowl is notoriously known for being the best time to pig out on some great food. Make sure the space is clean to make room for the delicious spread.
- Prepare any outdoor seating and amenities for guests: Depending on the weather, you may want to make sure there’s a nice space for guests to convene outside if they want to. This could be where you do the cooking if you’re working with a grill, so make sure the grill is prepped accordingly and there’s plenty of place for people to mingle.
- Make sure the bathroom is clean: Chances are, especially if there are beverages involved, the bathroom may be a hot spot during commercials or halftime. The last thing you want is your guests being grossed out by a dirty bathroom.

At this stage, the snacks are laid out, volume adjusted to the right level for everyone and it’s time to catch the action. You could do some partial cleaning during halftime, but if you’re interested in tuning into the halftime show performance you unfortunately will be left with an inevitable mess later on.
Super Bowl Wrap Up: After Party Cleaning
Cleaning up after a party is hard enough, and spoiler alert, it’s not any easier after an event like the Super Bowl. That doesn’t mean it needs to be stressful. Take care of the after party mess, and even learn how to remove the nacho cheese stain from the couch, step by step.
Start with the biggest job: Trash Pickup
Don’t even worry about picking up the broom or mop until you’ve cleared your home of every inch of trash. Often, it’s easier if this is a group job. You can do it by yourself, but don’t be shy to call some help or even a trusted junk removal service.
Do away with the dirty dishes
Let’s say you didn’t quite plan that far ahead and forget to get some paper plates and plastic utensils at the store. The guests used all your dishes and china and there’s a huge mess. There are work arounds, such as grabbing a dish bin and collecting plates from the guests.
But if you aren’t as forward-thinking, pull out those plastic gloves and get some elbow greases to clean off the hard to reach plates on the utensils. Too much for an old dishwasher? Get to work on the hand washing.
Declutter the living room
Since this is the area where your guests likely convened to watch all the action, chances are there may be a bit of clutter to tidy up.
Keep in contact with your guests if they left anything valuable, and take inventory of what might be trash and what isn’t. Is there trash that’s too bulky to move on your own? Hire help!
Don’t forget to check the bathroom after
If there are drinks involved, chances are the bathroom will be used quite often. We won’t delve into the gross details, but you know the hotspots.
Keep all of that clean and yes, even if you’re too grossed out to do it, there are others who can remove your bathroom of junk or even an old toilet that doesn’t work anymore.
