Moving into a new home is always an exciting experience. However, if it is a house that was recently vacated by previous tenants, it may not always be in the best condition. If you are moving into a neighborhood that is classified as a rental property, then the management company will do everything they can to prepare the house to receive new occupants. Even so, here’s what you need to think about getting cleaned while you settle into your new abode.
Cleaning Up the Carpets
A clean carpet can make a world of difference. If your new home is filled with wall-to-wall carpeting, then this is even more important to get taken care of, especially since moving in can kick up scary amounts of dust. Decreasing the number of allergens caught in the carpet is one of the most significant reasons to get this done. Some examples include dust mites, fleas, germs, bacteria, and putrid odors. A deep clean can also get rid of any residual mess or strong odors left behind by the contractors who worked to build your new home. Any stains or spots that are too stubborn for the average homeowner will also be revealed as well.
Cleaning Up the Tile and Grout
We cannot emphasize enough how important it is to get the tile cleaned up. Soap scum, grease stains on the backsplash, mold, and mildew are all incredibly tough to remove, and household cleaning solutions might not be enough to get the job done. That’s another strong reason to have a professional residential cleaning service swoop into the save the day! Next, be sure to inspect the condition of the grout in your home. While tile is easier to get cleaned, it can be more challenging to make sure the grout stays clean. Deep cleaning the grout removes all of the dirt, germs, and grime that can build up inside it. Make sure that the grout gets sealed as well; you may not know this, but grout is surprisingly porous. Even before you are all moved in, it’s worth it to get the grout cleaned and sealed correctly – this way it will last even longer!
Cleaning Up the Air Ducts
Don’t forget to get the air ducts cleaned up as well! It is one of the most important tasks to accomplish as soon as you move into a new home. That’s because you don’t know what the previous residents left behind in the air ducts and you definitely don’t want it to affect the indoor air quality, which could make you or your family members sick.
