If you’re moving into a new home, you’ve probably been very busy packing up your old house and getting everything settled for the new place.
However, cleaning the new house on top of everything else can be overwhelming. Don’t let chores take away the excitement over your new home! Follow this simple cleaning guide and get your house ready for move-in day.
Step #1. Clean the bathrooms
You’ll most likely use the bathroom as soon as you move in (or even before that!). So, you can start your clean-up there.
To have a spotless bathroom, you’ll need to scrub and disinfect the toilets, sinks, showers, and bathtubs (if you have them). Once you finish, you can visit the bathroom with peace of mind when doing the rest of your chores.
Step #2. Dust the high places and fixtures
You first need to clean where dust is most likely to settle. Some examples of places that go undisturbed for longer are the tops of cabinets, light fixtures, and ceiling fans.
Doing this will let you eliminate most of the dust without it flying around your house and landing on your furniture.
Step #3. Clean inside cabinets and closets
Since most of the things you take with you will end up in a closet or drawer, you should ensure the built-in cabinets are spotless so that none of these items get dirty when storing them.
It’s fairly simple to clean shelves, cabinets, and closets! All you have to do is grab a microfiber cloth and wipe them. This way, you can safely store your things without having to clean them again when you take them out.
Step #4. Clean your appliances
Having your appliances clean and ready is essential, especially the fridge, to keep your groceries fresh. You’ll also need to eat, so don’t forget to clean your other cooking appliances as soon as you move in. This task includes cleaning the oven, the microwave, and other kitchen appliances already in your home.
Step #5. Wash the walls and sweep the floors
Soon enough, large parts of the walls and floors will be inaccessible, so cleaning them while you can is crucial.
Before you put everything you own in your house, move what little furniture is already in place to clean behind it (doing this after you move in will be more difficult!). Also, don’t forget to leave the floors for last, so you don’t clean dirt and dust twice!
