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 on 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 even if the newly purchased home is deeply cleaned and then handed over to you but despite all this deep cleaning 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 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 it will require you to make it done.
You can schedule your cleaning according to your choice from Kitchen, and living room to the toilets. Sharing a 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 toilet 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 the case of a 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 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 a shine. Make sure to check the drainage system and it should not have any clogs. 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
This is the easiest place to clean as of now because there is currently no furniture present. Make sure you clean all stains if any are found on the floor or tiles. If there is wallpaper and you want to change it, do this as soon as possible, and if not you can wipe it down with a dry cloth. We must clean all ceiling fans in all rooms and wipe down all of the walls and ceilings too.
In addition, the windows of each room and the window panes should get checked and cleaned thoroughly. Be sure to also clean all of your furniture with a quality upholstery cleaner – see here- www.rent.com/blog/best-upholstery-cleaners-of-2023/ , prior to moving. Doing so will ensure that all of your belongings are clean and ready to be used as soon as you move into your new home.
4. Balcony or Deck Area
Balconies and deck areas of any home are the most loved place to enjoy quality time with family or have me-time. Make sure you clean it properly and have a mosquito net placed properly on doors.
If there is a drainage outlet, check it and get it properly cleaned.
5. House Painting:
If you are shifting into a rented home or buying a second-hand property, 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 just check inside your home, walk around the exterior as well as you may find wasp and hornet nests in the corners of your brickwork. If you do see these insects it is important that you call Wasp and Hornet Control services to come and deal with them right away as they can make their way inside your home if left.
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 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 to hire a locksmith and get all the locks changed to have peace of mind.
