You've found the perfect home and you're ready to move in. Not so fast. Before you unpack your first box in your new place, you need to make sure it's clean. Not the basic cleaning, but the deep down cleaning that will keep you healthy and safe. Here are steps to give your new home the deep cleaning it needs.
Look Up and Dust
If your new home has ceiling fans, you want to make sure they're clean and ready to be used. There's nothing worse than turning your fan on and watching a cloud of dust drop down on your furniture. Grab an old pillow case and spray the inside of it with furniture polish. Slip the pillow case over a fan blade and slowly pull the pillow case off. The dust will come off the blades and get captured in the pillow case. Repeat the process on each blade. When you're done, simply toss the pillow case in the washer. It will be ready for the next time you need to clean your fan blades.
Don't Forget the Walls
If your home's interior wasn't painted after the previous occupants moved out, you'll want to scrub the walls down before you move in. Those walls could be covered in germs that will pass to your family. If the previous occupants smoked, scrubbing the walls will remove any nicotine deposits that might be present. This is particularly important if you have small children. You want your walls to be clean for them to touch.
While you're scrubbing the walls, this would be a good time to clean the other touch points in your new place. Use a disinfectant wipe to clean anything that the previous occupants may have touched, including doorknobs, light switches and thermostats.
Consider the Bottom Line
Even if you've thoroughly disinfected the entire home, you don't want to sit where someone else has gone before you. Before you move in to your new home, switch out the toilet seats. An added benefit is that the germs from previous occupants will be completely removed with the old toilet seat.
Now that you have your new home, you want to make sure it's thoroughly clean when you move in. Don't take chances with germs and dust. The cleaning tips provided above will help ensure your home is spotless before you unpack your first box. For added protection, you may want to have a professional cleaning service go through and make sure everything is move-in ready.Share

Hi everyone, my name is Sandy. Welcome to my site about cleaning services. After starting my own company, I decided to rent out an office downtown. The office space was relatively small but still incredibly difficult to keep clean. I was spending at least an hour a night wiping down everything, taking out the trash and putting items back where they belong. I elected to hire a cleaning service to take care of all those tasks and more. I will use this site to talk more about the cleaning services I received and their benefits. Thanks for your time.
