Shifting your house is an unparalleled and exciting experience, similar to opening a new chapter in your life. However, where we are bound to be utmostly excited, our task lists for that time keep on growing. Thus, before you can just move in, set your unpacked furniture aside and go for a well-deserved slumber, there is an important task to accomplish. You need to perform the move-in cleaning. The majority of homeowners get to work days before moving in.
It’s easier to deep clean your new home before filling it with your furniture. By deep cleaning, we mean cleaning every nook and corner of the new house while focusing on all the nitty-gritty details. Therefore, let’s briefly discuss what move-in cleaning entails.
It’s hard to decide a starting point; however, the kitchen is a good place to start. You can commence by cleaning appliances if there are any. You will mostly encounter a stove and a refrigerator, so try to deep clean the area behind these appliances. After that, move on to clean the interior of these appliances, especially that of the fridge.
When you are finished with the appliances, it’s time to pay some attention to the cabinets. Over time, grease splatters and food tidbits accumulate on these surfaces as we cook. Hence, sweep these cabinets and tabletops clean and then proceed to disinfect them. Also, try to disinfect all the pulls and door knobs. After sweeping surfaces, all the load will fall to the ground; hence it’s time to begin the floor cleaning. Sweep and then vacuum the kitchen floor.
The mere thought of deep cleaning the bathroom skeeves many out. However, you can not rule it out. Hence, it’s time to head out to the restrooms. You can start by dusting and sweeping multiple places, such as vents, vanity top, vanity light fissures, and cabinets. Get ready by gearing up with gloves and tough stain cutters because you now need to clean your toilet. Many consider replacing the toilet seat. If your toilet seat is not too old, you can consider keeping it after a thorough clean. However, whatever you do with the toilet seat, it depends more on your personal preference.
After sorting out the toilet, proceed similarly, the way you did with the kitchen. Start with disinfecting knobs, and surface, then conclude with mopping and vacuuming the floor.
Rest of The Rooms:
Clean the remaining rooms from left to the right, top to bottom, don’t leave any nook or corner untouched. The flow of events is quite similar to what we discussed above—starting from sweeping and dusting the surfaces of the furniture and fans. Disinfect doorknobs and stuff you think is necessary. Finally, conclude by a final sweep, mop, or vacuum over your house floors.
