Cleaning as You Move..........In
Cleaning as You Move...In
After you've moved out, you're probably not looking forward to cleaning a whole new home prior to moving in. Unfortunately, some people neglect to clean their homes prior to moving out, leaving you to scrub away during your first few days.
Many neighborhoods provide new residents with a welcome package containing valuable coupons for local businesses. Often times, at least one maid service will offer a free or reduced first visit-a great way to get your new home sparkling while supporting a local business. Even if you don't receive such a coupon, try asking around to see if your neighbors can refer you to a nearby cleaning service.
If you would rather buff your own house for the first time, start by throwing away any old supplies that the owners may have left you. Chances are, if they didn't clean their house thoroughly, these supplies are probably fairly old or covered in grime. Start fresh with the basics from your local supermarket. If you brought some of your own cleaning supplies from your previous home, you can use them instead-just make sure you have enough of them available for giving the whole house a thorough cleaning.
As you walk through the house for the first time, look for nooks and crannies that may have accumulated debris. It's a good idea to check them right away so you can avoid getting your belongings dirty once you move them in. Check in hard to reach spots, especially those obscured behind doors or wall corners.
Once you start cleaning, don't stop until you've scrubbed every inch of the house. This includes the walls, doorknobs, window screens and appliances. If you don't know what may have touched a surface last, sanitize it to prevent it from spreading germs in the future. Rely on antibacterial cleaners and wipes to kill any lingering bacteria and odors, and promptly seal and dispose of used rags.
After the house is clean, move your furniture in and set it in the places where you'd like to keep it. Next, carefully clean each piece of furniture to remove any dirt from the moving process and to also clean the places touched by the movers. Throw away old moving supplies or keep them in a dry garage or attic for reuse. During the cleaning process, you'll also have a chance to inspect your belongings for any damage, making claims with the moving company easier to process.
Once your entire house is cleaned, settle in and enjoy the relaxation of owning a home. By scrubbing your abode right away, you eliminate several chores for the first several days you live there, freeing your schedule for unpacking and putting belongings away. Moving can be stressful, but if you clean the right way before and after the moving truck carries your items, the relocation process will be just a bit simpler.
