Moving home can be extremely exciting. When you move in, it is important that you make the necessary changes to make the new home feel like yours. It's important to remove any signs of the previous owners or tenants. This could include any lingering smells, grime, cobwebs, dust and everything that shouldn't be there by the time you move in. When you move into a new home, you want the place to smell fresh, clean and like your own. Here's exactly how you can get rid of any unwanted dirt, smells and dust. |
Any form of cleaning when you move starts before you are even in your new place. In an ideal world, the previous home owners would clean the house before they have moved on. However, everyone has different cleaning standards and 99% of the time, the quality of the cleaning is never up to standard. At the earliest opportunity, make sure that you get into the property and start clearing the areas. Start by cleaning away any mental and physical cobwebs. You can use these pieces of advice to get the ball rolling.
When you start to clean your new home, you want to start at the top and work your way down. This means that you start by cleaning the ceilings, then walls, any fixed furniture and then finally the floors. By cleaning in this way you are minimising the amount of dirt that will drop from the higher areas onto the floor. If you proceed to cleaning the floor first and working your way up, then you will end up cleaning the floors and carpets twice!
At the first opportunity, get stuck in and clean the areas of the property that you are very unlikely to clean again. This could include areas such as behind kitchen appliances such as washing machines, ovens, fridge-freezers and anything else that will rarely be purposely moved just for cleaning. Other areas to attack will include radiators, air vents, basements, attics, walls and cupboards.
The final part of your moving day cleaning procedure will be to clear the most used areas of the home by the previous occupants. You can use an anti-bacterial multipurpose cleaner to clear these spaces. You will notice what was used the most as there ill be natural wear and tear marks on handles, surfaces, toilets, showers, mirrors and pretty much anything that could be considered in every day life.
