Practical moving out cleaning tips

Do you have a move ahead of you, but you’re not sure how to wrap your head around cleaning your place ? Check out our comprehensive guide to moving out cleaning.

Moving out cleaning can be quite of a hassle. Moving is a stressful event on its own but you also need to take care of formalities and make sure you get your deposit back. After packing all your belongings you probably can’t wait to be at your new place, but the old one still needs to be taken care of. SPIC AND SPAN. would like to navigate you through this tedious process so that your move is as smooth as possible.

Depending on how often your home was cleaned thoroughly, it will take at least a few hours to make it immaculate and ready for new inhabitants.

Declutter your possessions

At the first glance this step might seem to have little to do with moving out cleaning, but it can considerably speed up and simplify the entire process. Not only is there no point in moving to a new place with items you don’t need, but also cleaning with less clutter around is much easier. You can start evaluating your possessions a few weeks before the moving date – putting it off until the last possible moment will make it seem intimidating and stressful.

Wipe down all surfaces

If your house was kept in a reasonably tidy condition, cleaning all surfaces won’t be difficult, but it certainly might take quite a lot of time. Please dedicate some attention to details, such as light switches and outlets, and the inside of the drawers.

Scrub the kitchen

Moving out cleaning requires giving a lot of attention to your kitchen. Cleaning and polishing the sink, cleaning the fridge inside and outside, and scrubbing the oven will ensure that your kitchen looks shiny and well-kept.

Moving out cleaning includes thoroughly cleaning the bathroom

Yes, bathroom cleaning is a bit time-consuming, but you’ll see immediate effects when you put some effort into it! Scrub the built-up lime on the shower and the sink, disinfect the toilet, and clean the mirror.
