There is a definite order for cleaning out your old place after you have finished moving out. Follow some of these expert tips for cleaning your home for the new owners.
Keep a do not move box: a box marked do not move in your home filled with cleaning supplies can be a great way that you can prepare with all of the items that you need to clean with before leaving. With a full materials list you can clean up almost any type of item from around the home.
Leave toilets floors and sinks until right before you leave: Completing these items right before you leave will ensure that the extra dust floating around doesn’t ruin the job you have done.
Start at the tom and clean to the bottom: start by wiping down the walls from the tops and move down to the baseboards. If you’re going to be wiping down everything inside the home, remember to clean in this order so that you can avoid cleaning the same spot twice.
Consider a carpet cleaner: remember that you will be responsible for a number of different stains and wear and tear with the new owners. Do what you can to potentially even rent a steam cleaner from a local grocery store after you move out to give your carpets one last improvement. Make sure that you do the carpet cleaning before you dust.
Clean the inside of all cabinets: before completing the floors make sure that you go through the cabinets with a warm soapy rag to ensure that any extra food residue is gone and that they are ready for the new owners. This is something you should do in your new home as well.
Keep these tips in mind when you are cleaning up after moving out of your old home.
