How to Deep Clean a House Before Moving In

Did you know there is more to Whistler than skiing? There are so many fun and unique things to do all year round in Whistler. It makes a perfect vacation spot for the whole family. Some things to do in Whistler include zip-lining, mountain biking, going down the world’s fastest ice track, and eco-tours. People from all over the world come to Whistler to vacation and never leave. Whistler homes for sale are selling at record rates and continue to be driven by very low-interest rates, lifestyle, and safety that living in Whistler offers. Before you get started on the fun parts of moving to a new place, you have to take care of the basics, deep cleaning.

Work in the Right Order

Have a box of essentials and deliver that first to your new home. Fill it with cleaning supplies, a bucket, paper towels, and toilet paper, along with the other essentials you’ll need to make it through the day. For each room, you should start high, like ceilings and light fixtures, then move down and end by cleaning the floor. Remember to be as thorough as you can. This will be the perfect opportunity to get a deep clean with no furniture in the way, and the cleaner you get everything, the more you will enjoy your new house. 

The first place to start your cleaning is the bathroom. It was likely used during the move-out, and you will want to use it during move-in, so it is a logical place to clean first. Be sure to get those hard-to-reach places such as under the sink, inside the medicine cabinet, and behind the toilet. Clean tiles, tub, and sink with a paste made of baking soda and vinegar that also dissolves soap scum. Wipe down glass shower doors with a vinegar/water mixture. The toilets are probably the grimiest spot in a house. Rather than spending your time cleaning them, remove them, clean under them, and replace them with a brand new seat. 

The kitchen is really important for cleaning a house before moving in because a lot of odors can be trapped there, and it is good to eliminate them right away. Wash and disinfect inside the cupboards and any countertop surfaces, knobs, and drawer pulls. Disinfect your appliances. Start by cleaning and disinfecting the inside and outside of your fridge so you can start unloading food, then take care of the stove, microwave, and dishwasher.

Get Professional Cleaning

Before you move in is the best time to have professional floor cleaning done, as there won’t be the added hassle of moving furniture in and out of the house. You can do your best to clean the floors, but it just won’t compare to a professional floor cleaner’s results.
