Moving In: 3 Tips About Cleaning Your New Apartment

Moving is always an exciting experience. It can certainly be fraught with stress and anxiety, but in the end, you’re settled in a new place that is all your own. Whether your new apartment is positively spotless or still has some remnants of the previous tenants, it’s always a good idea to give the place a good cleaning — before you begin unpacking. The following four tips will ensure that the foundation you’re building on is a clean and sterile one!

  • High to low: Dust doesn’t only exist on floors and countertops. Ceilings fans, overhead lighting fixtures, and shelving often don’t experience the same level of cleaning as the rest of the home. Since wiping dust off of a high up location will simply cause it to drift down to the lower areas, it’s wise to hit these spots first; it will eliminate needing to clean the same place twice.
  • Fridge first: Perishables won’t wait for you to get your ducks in a row as you become acclimated to your new home, so the fridge is the first area you should tackle. Due to the fact that it’s already clear of any and all food products (hopefully), sanitizing your refrigerator shouldn’t take too long.
  • Kitchen: You can’t avoid eating while unpacking in those first days and weeks. Following the fridge, the kitchen should get a complete cleaning, both to ensure you’re not cooking in filth and to avoid the chances of getting sick.

Did you know that dust is comprised of 70% dead skin flakes? The thought of moving into a new apartment and being surrounded by the skin of the previous occupants sends a chill down our spine, but it doesn’t have to be that way; with move in cleaning services from a professional cleaning company, you won’t have to think about what you’re going to be sleeping and breathing in. In no time at all, you’ll be living in the refreshing scent of pine and bleach, and those past renters will be just that — in the past.
