Moving into a new house, your dream house is the extremely exciting and fun part. But, before you enter inside and start a new journey make sure your new adobe doesn’t get affected by any unwanted problems. To avoid all this, you need to be very well prepared before you step into your dream house.
Why Deep Cleaning is important?
Deep cleaning is the first step after you decide your date of movement and before you unload your stuff. Whether you are purchasing a new home or shifting to a rental home, remember you will never get an empty house again to go for a deep clean.
Normally people who move out from the space clean the home and then hand over the keys and even the newly purchased home is deeply clean and then handed over to you but despite all this deep clean from your end is required to make sure your space is as clean as you required.
How and where to start?
It’s always better to have a perfect plan for any job and so you can’t choose a random job to be done any day. Make a plan that which area you will cover for cleaning and what all it will require you to make it done.
You can schedule your cleaning according to your choice from Kitchen, living room to toilets. Sharing few areas which you should work on before moving into.
To start your move-in cleaning should be your Bathrooms. This place why I prefer to be cleaned first is that as we start our cleaning up process bathrooms will be most commonly going to be used.
Deep clean your bathroom and start with stains, it could be on floor tiles or wall tiles, you can use baking soda paste and add some vinegar leaving for 30 to 45 minutes you can scrub with a brush or toothbrush to clean. We can remove toilets and shower stains with the same mixture of Baking soda and Vinegar.
If you feel that the toilet seats are not up to the mark(in case of secondhand home or rented home), get them changed as it is for your hygiene.
There are many disinfection mixtures also available in the market used to clean the towel hangers, switchboards, and even doors.
Deep Clean a house before moving in is really important and you should not miss cleaning up your kitchen which is going to be the next most used place in your home.
Clean the sink if it is stainless steel with a homemade mixture of lemon and water to give it shine. Make sure to check the drainage system and it should not have any clogged. The countertop, cabinets, and chimney should be properly cleaned with the kitchen cleaner. Make sure you don’t miss cleaning all drawers in the kitchen to eliminate any sort of odors.
3. Living Room and Bedrooms
The easiest place to clean as of now because there is no furniture and make sure you clean all stains if found on the floor or tiles. If there are wallpapers, and you want to change make it done as soon as possible, and if not let it get cleaned with the dry cloth. We must clean all ceiling fans of all rooms and even the walls and ceilings.
The windows of each room and the window panes should get checked and cleaned.
4. Balcony or Deck Area
Balconies and deck areas of any home are the most loved place to enjoy quality time with family or having me-time. Make sure you clean it properly and have a mosquito net place properly on doors.
If there is a drainage outlet, do check that also and get it properly cleaned.
5. House Painting:
If you are shifting in a rented home or buying a second-hand property must go for house painting, filling up the patches on the wall, and this will give your home a clean and new look.
6. Pest Control:
Pest control is very important before you move into a new home. Get the appointment of an exterminator to visit and check for home unwanted guests and invaders and spray and can disinfect your home.
Don’t miss checking these things before moving in:
1. Electric wire Connections:
Electric wiring needs to be checked properly before you step in with your furniture and stuff. All the electric points should work properly and in case you need any other electric points to get it done before stepping in.
2. Water Supply and leakage
Do check the inlet and outlet point of the water supply, all drainage pipes should be properly cleaned and no leakage should be there afterward.
3. Safety First
It’s important before moving in hiring the locksmith and get all the locks changed to have peace of mind.
