Moving Day: House Cleaning Checklist to Keep You Sane

As you plan for your upcoming residential move, including house cleaning tasks on your to-do list will ensure you cover all the bases. Whether you are moving in or moving out, starting with a clean home will facilitate a fresh start. Use this house cleaning checklist to keep you on track.

Dust Away

Use a microfiber cloth to dust each room in the home. Start at the top of the room and work your way down. Don't forget to dust the window sills, corners, doors, baseboards, light fixtures, ceiling fans, and blinds. Dusting before vacuuming is ideal because dust particles tend to land on the floor as you go.

Clean the Floors

Vacuum and mop the floors and spot clean carpet stains throughout the rooms in the home. Use a specialized cleaning solution for wood and tile flooring surfaces.

Make the Windows Spotless

Use a glass cleaner or vinegar-water solution to clean the windows. Wipe the cleaner away with newspaper for a spot-free, streak-free shine.

Clean All the Bathroom and Kitchen Surfaces

Use an all-purpose cleaner to clean and disinfect bathroom and kitchen surfaces, top to bottom, including counters, sinks, showers, and tubs. Give toilets a thorough cleaning with toilet bowl cleaner and a scrub brush. Wipe away smudges on the outside of cabinets with a cabinet-safe cleaner.

Clean the Appliances

Use the self-cleaning option for the stove if possible. Otherwise, use a cleaning solution to scrub down the appliances, including the inside and outside of the dishwasher, refrigerator, and microwave.
