If you’ve just purchased a new home, congratulations! It’s exciting to prepare to decorate your new space. Before you start moving in your belongings, however, it’s smart to do a deep cleaning so you can get a true fresh start.
Follow these tips to make your home as comfortable as possible–before you begin the move-in process.
Wipe Down Window Sills
As you clean, you’ll likely get dust moving, which can be tough if you suffer from allergies. Opening up the windows and cleaning dirt off of the window sills can be the first step to getting your new home smelling fresh and clean. If it’s too cold to open up the windows, you may want to bring an air purifier to help pull in the dust as you go through the cleaning process.
Put the Oven to Work
If your new home comes equipped with a self-cleaning oven, get a cleaning cycle going while you’re working on cleaning other parts of your home. Be warned, if the last owners weren’t great at cleaning the oven, it’s likely that you’ll have to deal with some smoke. If you can, set your oven to clean on a day when you can comfortably leave the windows in your new home open as you go about your cleaning tasks.
Bring Your Ladder
Getting up high is key to cleaning your new home. Spaces above cabinets and light fixtures are often neglected, and getting rid of the dust in these hard-to-reach places before you move in is a smart move. Your furniture (and your allergies) will thank you for getting long-settled dust out of your new home.
Get Deep into Your Floors
Steam cleaning your hardwood floors and carpet is an important part of preparing your home for the move-in process. When you do this before you move your furniture into your home, it’s easier to get into the typically tough-to-reach areas (such as under heavy furniture). It can be helpful to hire a professional carpet cleaning company to tackle carpeted areas. You may also want to talk to your carpet cleaning company about giving your furniture upholstery a solid clean before you move it into your new space.
