When it’s time for you to move out of your old place and into a new one, it means you’re starting a new phase of your life. That’s exciting, but one part of moving that doesn’t excite anyone is pre-moving cleaning. It’s a long and tedious process, but it’s still necessary. It ensures that you’ll get your deposit back if you’re renting, and in case you own the place you’re moving out of, it guarantees that your property will have the highest value possible.
To help you with the pre-moving cleaning process, here are five tips on how to speed it up:
1. Pack your stuff and move everything out of the room
Before you start cleaning a room, make sure that you pack up everything in it. Getting your things out of the way will free up space, allowing you to go in and clean all the nooks and crannies in the room to make sure that everything is neat, clean, and sanitised. If you don’t do this, the entire process will take significantly longer, as you will have to move your stuff around from one side of the room to the other while you’re cleaning. This is not the most efficient way to clean and it will take much more energy than necessary.
2. Focus on the ceilings first
Once you’re done moving all your stuff out of the room you’re cleaning, the next thing you will need to focus on is getting rid of the dust and cobwebs on the ceiling. Make sure you clean from top to bottom, as that will ensure that the dust falls from the ceiling. That way, you will only have to clean the floor once. If you do it the other way around, you will have to clean the floor twice, which won’t be the best use of your time.
3. Clean the walls
The next area that you will need to focus on are the walls of your old place. Wipe them down with some mild soap to get rid of any dirt. Make sure to clean your windows as well after you’re done with the walls. Use a damp cloth to go over the whole wall again after you have cleaned it with mild soap to make sure the walls and windows are spotless.
4. Mop the floor
Now that the ceiling and the walls are immaculate, you will need to focus your attention on the floor. It won’t take much time to mop the floor, especially when everything has already been cleared.
5. Move on to the bathroom and kitchen
These two rooms are usually the dirtiest rooms in the house, as there will often be a considerable number of stains for you to clean. You need to make sure that you use sanitising products to make sure that all the surfaces in these rooms are germ-free and shining like new.
