About to Do a Move-out Cleaning? Don’t Forget These Places!

Whether you’re renting or owning, it’s always good to do a quick move-out cleaning. Before moving out, many people are rushing to clean every corner of their home to leave it in great condition.

Before you finish, here are some places you might forget when doing a move-out cleaning.

Don’t Forget the Ceiling Fan During Your Move-out Cleaning

This is any easy one to forget. The reason people tend to forget the ceiling fan when cleaning is they forget to look up! Grab a steady surface to stand on and wipe down those fan blades.

Don’t Forget Cabinet Tops

The cabinet tops are also easy to forget and for the same reason. Also, the top of the cabinet is not something you regularly look at, especially kitchen cabinets that are in high places. Stand on the counter top if you have to and get those cabinets dust-free.

Don’t Forget the Appliances

If you’re moving out of a rental and the appliances were part of the deal or if you’re leaving them in for the new owner, you should leave them nice and clean. These include the microwave, the laundry machine, the refrigerator, and even the stove.

Don’t Forget Towel Bars

You know where you hang your towel up when you take a shower? Yeah, clean those. Even if you’re the cleanest person in the world, cloth has a way of smudging surfaces. As a matter of fact, clean every place where you hang any type of cloth.

Don’t Forget the Windows

The windows are actually not very hard to miss, but the window sills and the window frame can be. These areas can collect dust and moisture, so make sure you wipe that away.

Don’t Forget the Doors

Again, the doors are probably not hard to forget about. It’s the doorknobs and the doorframes people tend to miss.

Without mentioning how dirty human hands tend to be, doorknobs can be among the dirtiest places in your home. Clean those immediately, along with the frames.

Don’t Forget the Fireplace

If you have a fireplace, don’t overlook it, especially if you don’t use it often. Dust away spider webs and sweep away the ash from this special place in your house.

Don’t Forget to Take Out the Trash

Finally, don’t forget to take out the garbage after cleaning all of these places. You don’t want to leave all the garbage after going through the trouble of making the place look clean. And now, you’re done cleaning.

  1. This is a great article. Moving out can be hard enough on its own, but to top it off, you might not get your deposit back if you leave it a mess. It’s important to learn how to prepare for a move-out inspection so that you can get your deposit back and walk away without damage fees.

  2. In our experience we confirm that the doorknobs are one of the dirtiest place in every house, especially if there is a kid. Kids can easily bring much more dirt than you think, even with their hands 🙂
