Congratulations! You’ve got the keys to your new home. Before you move in, however, there’s one more important step—a thorough house cleaning. This is likely the only opportunity you’ll have to clean without having to work around furniture and other belongings, so get a fresh start in your new home with these cleaning tips:
Start at the Top
Before you clean the floors or countertops, thoroughly dust any ceiling fans, light fixtures or shelving close to the ceiling. Dust and grime tend to build up in these infrequently-cleaned spots, eventually falling down and soiling the space below.
Pick Your Priorities
Among the first things you should clean are the inside of the fridge, since you’ll need a place to store your perishable food right away, and the bathroom, which will be in regular use throughout the day.
Don’t Forget the Walls
Many people don’t think of washing the walls in their new home. If a clean cloth comes away from your walls dirty, however, you should give them a gentle scrubbing, too.
Consider Hiring a Pro
Hey, we get it. Between the house-hunting, the packing and the move itself, you might feel too busy and exhausted to clean. Of course, that doesn’t mean you should skip it! If it’s in your budget, consider hiring a professional housecleaning service. Just make sure to give them a thorough checklist in advance.
