One of the best parts of moving into a new home is that you can completely make it your own. From the baseboards to the drapes, you can customize the home in any way you want. Before you start personalizing it, though, you’ll want it to be sparkling clean. Here at We Clean 4 You, we specialize in cleaning homes, and we’d like to share a few tips for making sure your home is move-in ready.
Go From the Top Down
When cleaning your home, it’s important to start at the top with the ceilings and work your way down to the floors. If the ceilings don’t show any cobwebs or dust, you can probably just start with dusting the ceiling fans and then wash any walls that need to be cleaned. Do this in each room and then move to the kitchen.
Tackle the Kitchen and Bathrooms
The kitchens and bathrooms will likely be the most time consuming to clean, so start with them first. Once again, start by cleaning cabinets and lighting fixtures and then make sure to clean the sinks, tubs, showers and faucets with cleaner and bleach.
In the kitchen, you’ll also want to clean out the refrigerator, dishwasher and oven. If possible, pull these appliances out from the wall and clean behind them, too.
Don’t Forget the Floors
The last thing you’ll want to clean are the floors. You’ll be amazed at how big of difference it makes when the floors are freshly and deep cleaned. If there are any floors that need to be resealed or refinished, you should do this before cleaning the rest of your home.
Timeline for Cleaning Your Home Before Moving Into It
You’re probably wondering how long it’s going to take to get your home clean before you can move in. Truth is, it all depends on how large the home is and how much help you have. A 3,000 square foot home can usually be cleaned in less than eight hours if two people are cleaning and taking short breaks every hour or so. It also depends on how dirty the home is. If you’re having to remove crayon from the walls, this will of course make cleaning the home a lot longer.
If you don’t have time to clean your home before moving in it, keep in mind that We Clean 4 You can have your home move-in ready in a timely manner. From shining up your bathrooms to steam cleaning the floors, we provide a deep cleaning special that is sure to have your home looking better than ever before.
