We share our 5 Tips for Move-out Cleaning. The to-do list can be stressful whether you’re moving out of state or down the street, especially regarding cleaning. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There are several things that you can do that can make the process as painless as possible.
5 Tips for Move-out Cleaning: Organization
Organize Your Packing
Everyone knows getting a deep clean is easier when fewer items are in the way. Designate one room to store all the boxes until the moving truck arrives. That way, you can get a head start on cleaning the rest of the house, resulting in less work needed on the actual day of the move.
5 Tips for Move-out Cleaning: The Deep Clean
Remove Visible Dust and Cobwebs
Once your rooms are empty, target the walls and ceiling by removing dust and cobwebs from the top and corners. If you don’t have a long-handled duster like a Swiffer, don’t worry, you can improvise also. You can tie an old shirt to your mop to create a makeshift “Swiffer.”
Wipe Your Walls Down
After you’ve removed any visible dust, it’s time to wipe down the walls. If your wall coverings permit, we recommend taking a damp washcloth to clean the walls. Focus on any scuff marks or dirty spots, then tackle the rest of the wall.
Clean Your Kitchen and Bathroom
Deep kitchen and bathroom cleaning can be done earlier in the week when you have extra time to spare. Then, do a quick once-over on the day you’re moving.
Save Sweeping and Mopping for Last
We recommend saving the sweeping and mopping for right before you leave because, more than likely, dirt will get tracked in while you’re moving your things out. So, you don’t want to sweep and mop those floors several times. Do it once when all the stuff has been taken out. This allows you to leave the floors sparkling clean as you go. Whoever is moving in after you will thank you for that!
