If you’re selling your home this fall, you know there can be many details to keep straight. Between cleaning out your home, packing your stuff, and moving your belongings, your prior home also needs to be cleaned and ready for the new owners.
Maid services for move out cleaning in Colorado Springs can help you save time and energy after packing and moving into your new home. Here are a few tips for clearing out your house and getting it ready for the new owners.
Remove Personal Belongings
This may seem self-explanatory, but don’t be surprised when you find additional belongings lurking behind doors, in sheds, attics, overhead rafters, or hidden in your garage. If you’ve lived in your home for many years, stuff tends to accumulate with time. Make sure to look in hidden or inconspicuous areas and remove all of your personal items. When your belongings are removed, you can start the process of cleaning your home.
Clean Out The Garage
Garages often become the catch-all for extra stuff around your house. Remove everything from your garage (including stuff in cupboards, on the walls, or on rafters) and throw away trash. Sweep the garage clean of debris, wash windows and doors, and dispose of any toxic chemicals.
Deep clean your bathrooms by scrubbing the shower (including shower doors and tracks, if applicable), toilet, and sink until they shine. Dust cabinets or shelves, clean overhead lights, mop the floor, and scrub around the base and top of the toilet. Wash windows and blinds and leave the bathroom germ-free while smelling clean and fresh.
Sanitize the Kitchen
Kitchens have plenty of areas to attract dirt and germs. If your kitchen hasn’t been deep cleaned in a while, this room may need extra attention. Wash down all cabinets and shelves, disinfect counters, and dust cobwebs. Scrub the sink, sweep and mop the floor, and clean the top and inside of the stove. Move the stove to sweep and mop underneath and sweep and mop the rest of the kitchen floor.
Defrost Refrigerator and Freezer
If your refrigerator stays in the home, clean out the food and defrost the freezer. Remove shelves and bins to wash. Clean the walls and the inside door of the fridge before putting the clean shelves back inside. Wipe down the outside of the fridge and freezer and sanitize the door handles.
Hire a Maid Service
If you’re busy moving between homes and unpacking, hire a maid service to do a deep clean on your old home. Your home will be vacuumed, dusted, swept, mopped, and sanitized so it’s ready and waiting for the new owners. Save yourself the hassle of move out cleaning by hiring professionals to do the dirty work for you.
