Time to move = time to clean. Not only do you have to clean your existing home, you have to clean the new house you’re moving into. You can’t rely on other people’s versions of a “good cleaning.” That’s why you need to take matters into your own hands and make sure your new house is sparkling clean and up to your standards before you settle in.
Your first step is to call a Dallas mover. Your next step is to read this blog and see why you should clean your home before moving in Dallas, home to 1.3 million and the fourth largest metro area in the country.
Moving out of an apartment? You’ll need to make sure it’s clean before you move out, at the very least to get your security deposit back. Moving from a house? It’s common courtesy to clean the home before the new owners move in. Here are the cleaning tasks to concentrate on:
If you have access to your new home or apartment before you actually move in, it’s best to give it a deep clean so you can move your family into a sparkling clean and sanitized house. If you don’t have the time or live too far away to do it yourself, hire a professional cleaning company.
Here’s a checklist of what to do:
This is a general overview of what to do. Now let’s take a deep dive into specific cleaning chores. Some people prefer to do a much deeper cleaning for the house they’re moving into, sort of on the level of a spring or fall cleaning. This is actually a great time to do this, before the furniture and belongings clutter everything up.
Using a simple paste of baking soda and vinegar is a good alternative to expensive or harsh chemicals. Scrub the tub and sink with this paste. Then, clean glass shower doors with glass cleaner or one part vinegar and one part water in a spray bottle. Using undiluted vinegar, pour this in the toilet and scrub. It’s not a bad idea to replace the toilet seat.
Rent or buy a steam cleaner and clean the carpets, or hire a company to do it for you. Mop and polish any hardwood floors.
Wipe down the walls with a soft cloth and some water and vinegar. Don’t forget the corners, which is where dirt and cobwebs tend to congregate.
Now that you know what to clean before moving out and then in, you can get peace of mind knowing both houses will be at their best!
