Before deep cleaning your new home
- Deal with the clutter before cleaning
There are quite a few steps to a move-in cleaning. However, you should be able to get your place looking as shiny and new in a couple of days with some extra effort. Still, to make it easier on yourself, make sure to go over some initial steps before you start actually deep cleaning your new home. Get rid of any items that you no longer want or need, and have a good tidy. Clear away any objects and boxes that have piled on the pathways, or furniture. This way, it will be easier to both see and get to the places you need to. If you don’t have a secure place to put away your belongings, professional moving and storage NJ services can be of great help to get everything out of the way.
- Make sure you have everything you’ll need
Before getting down to business, you will, of course, have to gather the supplies necessary. You will need some rubber gloves, sponges and scrubbers, cleaning rags, paper towels, and microfiber cloths for tackling the smaller surfaces. Moreover, don’t forget to unpack your broom, duster, and vacuum cleaner for cleaning the debris from floors, upholstery, draperies, and other surfaces. Next, a mop and a bucket to make the floors shiny. And lastly, but most importantly, the necessary cleaning products without which a thorough cleaning of your new space would not be possible.
Deep cleaning your new home – the direction is a true game-changer
Top to bottom
Start at the top and dust the ceiling, corners, vents, fans, and light fixtures, and then work your way down. These high up features of a room are those that are most seldom cleaned, and thus, responsible for sprinkling the most amount of debris down to the lower levels of the room. Move on to cleaning the windowsills and window coverings. Note that it’s always better to have curtains professionally washed since they are prone to shrinkage. Next, wash the inside and outside of the cabinets and shelves attached to your walls in every room. You will remove all of the escaping dust et the end of your cleaning process when tackling the floors.
Left to right
Left to right, right to left – whichever direction you choose, it’s good either way. The point is to have a game plan. By plotting out the method of deep cleaning your new chambers in a particular order, you will reduce the possibility of missing some areas. It’s advisable to start cleaning from the point of the room’s entrance and gradually moving in one direction.
Back to front
As we’ve mentioned before, your floors come at the very end of your new home deep cleaning process. All of the dust you’ve knocked down from the higher levels will accumulate on the ground. At this point, all that is left to do is start your vacuum cleaner, remove all of the remaining dirt and debris, and then polish it using a mop and a bucket. For a meticulously clean new place of residence, you might want to repeat the process of mopping. However, an important thing to mention is to keep following a certain direction at this stage as well. Clean the floors by starting from the back of the room and making your way to the doors. Moreover, the side-to-side method is applicable here too.
