Moving to a new home is one of the most inevitable parts of life. People move for many reasons. Some, move because of education. Some move to a new home to start a family and a new life. Some have to relocate to a new city and a new home owing to their job transfer. In any case, moving to a new home can offer you lots of new possibilities. A new home is like a bare campus. You can make it your own with the right kind of décor and items that will represent you, your taste and your personality too. But before you start decking it up the way you want, you need to consider a very crucial part. And that is the deep cleaning of the house.
The previous inhabitants of the house, no matter how well-intentioned they were, are most likely to leave something behind, dirt, and grime, or it can be a broken piece of furniture. Now, before you start making a pre-owned house your own, you need to know about some expert cleaning hacks that will make the home livable again. Take a look at the following cleaning tips before you start.
Clean High First:
In a home, it is the ceiling and the things hanging from them that relegate dust unlike anything else. The ceiling fan, the overhead light fixtures, the open shelves hanging on the wall high can be home to a lot of dust and grime. This is why, one of the most important cleaning tips and tricks is to start with cleaning high first. Get rid of the dust that can shower upon you and the other things in the room, thus making everything dirty all over again after you are done with a cleaning spree in the lower levels. Use a broom and wiper for cleaning and you are sorted.
Next, Go On a Fridge Mission:
The next target for your cleaning hack should be your fridge. Yes, let’s assume that the previous owner hasn’t left any food or packets inside it. But before you settle down, it is necessary for you to clean the fridge at the earliest. This way you will make sure that you have the fridge completely free of any dirt and the unhygienic things that can ruin the food that you will be storing inside. Use soap and warm water to clean the shelves. For stuck-on gunk, use warm water and white vinegar. Make sure the fridge is completely dry before you put the shelves and drawers back.
Now, the Kitchen Game:
Now, focus on the rest of the kitchen. There are many areas in the kitchen that can be particularly tricky to clean. The sink, the stove, the oven, and microwave oven, the chimney, the cabinets (both inside and outside), all of these places can accumulate a lot of dirt. After taking care of the things overhead like light fixtures and ceiling, move on to the stovetops, countertops and cabinets. If there are some rigid stains, use baking soda and hydrogen peroxide for rubbing the stains off.
Onto the Bathroom:
As far as bathroom cleaning hacks are concerned, the first and foremost thing that you need to do is replacing the toilet seat. It is a very small investment that you need to do. But when it comes to hygiene, it is a necessary step. Clean the soap holder, toilet paper holder and bath fittings. Make sure you are also disinfecting the place properly. Use an antibacterial spray for this. For cleaning the faucets, taps and showerheads, mix lemon with water and rub on the surface with a cloth. So, now as you are empowered with these home cleaning tips what are you waiting for? Embark on the cleaning spree and make the pre-owned building your home.
