Whether you’re a new homeowner or a renter, keep reading to learn what you should clean before you move into your new space, and how professional move-in cleaning services can help with those critical deep-cleaning tasks.

What You Should Clean Before You Move-In

While you may want to schedule a deep cleaning from the pros, there are certain surface-level cleaning tasks you can handle yourself prior to the big move.

These include:

  • Sweeping up any dust and debris on floors using a broom on hard surfaces and running a vacuum on carpets.
  • Wiping down walls and other surfaces with a disinfecting solution.
  • Removing scuffs and marks with an eraser sponge.
  • Sanitizing the bathtub, shower, sinks and toilets.
  • Dusting light fixtures and ceiling fans.
  • Cleaning any kitchen appliances or large appliances like a washer or dryer.
  • Replacing the furnace air filter.

Expert Move-In Cleaning Services: Deep Cleaning From the Pros

When it comes to deep-cleaning projects, you can save time and energy by turning to a seasoned residential cleaning professional.

Here are the move-in cleaning services you should schedule with a professional prior to taking possession of your new space:

Professional carpet cleaning will preserve the longevity of your carpet and improve your new home’s indoor air quality. This is especially important for “new to you” homes. Be sure to request overspray protection to ensure your newly cleaned carpets stay clean in the months to come.

Dirty grout makes an entire space look unclean. Grout cleaning can bring new life to any room with tile including kitchens, bathrooms and foyers. With effective grout cleaning, you get a spotless space that looks and feels fresh.

Don’t let construction mess or the previous resident’s dirt, dust and dander circulate through your home’s heating and cooling system and the air you breathe. With professional air duct cleaning, your household will be breathing clean air from day one.

Bringing your existing furniture to your new home? Start off on a clean foot! Have your upholstery professionally cleaned.
