Top 10 Tips on Doing a Final Clean Before Moving Home/Office
When it comes to moving house or an office, cleaning is the one task that always needs to be done. While some people love cleaning, there are many of us who don’t enjoy it all and if you are moving out of a place, the clean needs to be pretty thorough. So, how do you take the hard work out of cleaning?
These top 10 tips will not only leave your place looking clean but will help get the job done quickly. This checklist is for people that decide to do the final clean themselves and not hire a professional cleaning company. For the sake of leaving your property in the best possible condition, we always recommend using an experienced cleaning company that not only has the right tools and products but also know how to clean difficult areas properly.
1. Make a Checklist
Make a checklist of the rooms and the items in those rooms that need to be cleaned, e.g. the oven in the kitchen, etc.
2. Clean Once the House or the Office is Empty
Cleaning once all furniture and boxes have been moved out by removalists will make cleaning easier.
3. Have the Right Tools
Have all the cleaning supplies you need such as brooms, cleaning cloths, disinfectant, buckets, and gloves, etc before you start.
4. Start from the Furthest Point from the Front Door
By starting in the rooms that are furthest from the front door you eliminate the chance of messing up the already clean spaces.
5. Clean from the Top Down
Start cleaning from the tops of the cupboards and shelves so that any dust that falls won’t mess up already clean floors.
6. Clean One Room at a Time
Once you start cleaning a room, finish it. This will save having to go back and forward checking if everything’s clean.
7. Use Eucalyptus Oil
Eucalyptus oil is great for removing stubborn stains especially those left by adhesives (blu tack, sticky tape, etc).
8. Use Bi-Carb Soda to Clean the Oven
Bi-Carb Soda is great for removing grease and stains from the oven.
9. Finish with the Floors
Give the floors a final vacuum and mop just before you leave for the last time.
10. Set-Up a Fun and Upbeat Playlist
Listen to your favourite music while you clean, you’ll be having so much fun you may forget you’re cleaning! Hopefully, these tips will help take the hard work out of cleaning before your next move.
