A new home or apartment presents a world of opportunities. While your bare walls and rooms might not seem like much at first, they give you an empty canvas on which you can start building an incredible home for you and your family. Of course, after you’ve chosen a realtor, found the right home, and started planning your move, you’ll need to do a few extra things before you can begin making the most of your new space.
Cleaning your new home before you settle in is a huge necessity. The people or person who lived in your house before you are sure to have left some grime, dust or dirt behind that you’ll want to handle before you start settling. Here are our top tips to get you started.
1. Start High and Then Go Low
Dust and dirt aren’t restricted to countertops and floors. Your overhead lighting fixtures, shelving, ceiling fans, and other features can be just as grimy too. The trouble is, they rarely get cleaned as often, and they usually sprinkle dust and dirt onto the space below when you do end up giving them the scrubbing that they need.
One of the best ways to make sure that you get the most out of your hard work is to start high and gradually move lower. This way, when the time comes to finish mopping up your floors, you’ll know that your home is clean from top to bottom. For ceiling fan blades, your best bet is to use a microfiber cloth to capture as much of the dust as possible.
2. Start with the Fridge in the Kitchen
If your cleaning session begins after your moving team in Georgia have started to deliver some of your belongings, then the best thing you can do is start by cleaning out the fridge when you’re working on the kitchen. After all, there are a lot of things that you can put off while you’re cleaning your new home but making sure that you have fresh food isn’t one of them.
The good news is that because your fridge is clear of any extra food, you should be able to get everything done within less than 20 minutes. Remove drawers and shelves, and clean them individually, then wipe out the entire inside of the fridge.
3. Get Some Expert Help
Ultimately, cleaning your home is a great way to make sure that you’re starting the next stage of your life in a fresh and hygienic environment. However, the chances are that you want to spend your time within that first couple of days in your new home getting to know the neighborhood, not scrubbing surfaces with bleach. If you really want to make the most of your moving experience, then the best thing you can do is delegate the cleaning to a professional.
Reach out to a team of expert cleaners in your local area and ask them to do the hard work for you. Not only will you save some time, but you’ll also get a higher level of cleaning too!
