Moving to another house or apartment requires a lot of work as well as time, starting with the packing, hauling and unloading. And to make it even tougher, your new home needs to be deep cleaned as well. It is best if you can deep clean your new home first before actually moving in. Doing a thorough clean-up before you transfer to your new home can make your job easier. Cleaning is easier and more fun with the help of your family and friends. Additionally, you need to be armed with all the necessary cleaning tools, materials, and equipment for a smooth and fast cleaning job.
The kitchen is perhaps the first place in the house that needs to be cleaned. Most likely, the previous tenant did not have the time to deep clean, so you need to make sure that there aren’t any cooking smells, stains, dirt or dust that lurks around. Remember, your kitchen should be clean all the time so that your family will be healthy and well. If you want to use natural cleaning products to clean your kitchen, your ever-reliable baking soda and vinegar mixed with water can do the trick. These two indispensable household items are effective in getting rid of foul smells and most stains.
The bathroom is similarly very important and needs to be cleaned thoroughly. The past tenant may have already sanitized and disinfected this area, but just to make sure and for your own peace of mind, it’s still recommended that you do your own cleaning and freshening. As you know, it is one area where germs and bacteria meet up and create havoc. So scrub and disinfect surfaces, sinks, toilet bowl and other bathroom fixtures. You may consider replacing fixtures that you think are not in good condition anymore or are of substandard quality.
After a tiring day of cleaning, you will want to rest in your new bedroom. Just before that, wipe the windows, walls and light fixtures. Put on fresh beddings, so that once you sleep, you will be more comfortable and peaceful.
Floors and Carpets
If your new house has a carpet, you may want to hire a professional cleaner to clean it for you before moving in. But, if the previous occupants already cleaned it, then all you need is to vacuum. Check if the floor is already spick and span, If so, you can just sweep it to remove any lingering dirt and dust.
As you get excited in transferring to your new home, do not forget to deep clean your previous home as you move out, so that it will be easier for the next occupants to clean it as well.
