Preparing the Space Before Moving

organizing for a move

Before moving, we declutter our space by getting rid of unneeded items to create a clean and organized environment. This step not only helps in lightening the load but also sets the stage for a fresh start in our new home.

Once the decluttering is complete, we focus on giving our current space a deep clean. Starting with high-traffic areas like the kitchen and bathrooms, we scrub surfaces, dust corners, and vacuum carpets to guarantee every nook and cranny is spotless. Cleaning windows inside and out brings in natural light, making the space feel welcoming and bright.

We pay special attention to the floors, ensuring they’re thoroughly cleaned to welcome the new occupants into a pristine environment. By using the right cleaning supplies and putting in the effort to deep clean, we can make certain that our new home isn’t just a house but a place where we truly belong.

Essential Cleaning Supplies Checklist

To ensure a thorough cleaning process when moving in or out, it’s essential to have a well-equipped arsenal of cleaning supplies ready. Prior to your move, make sure you have essential items such as all-purpose cleaner, glass cleaner, disinfecting wipes, microfiber cloths, and a vacuum cleaner on hand. These tools will help you achieve spotless surfaces free of dust and grime.

Additionally, having a mop, broom, dustpan, scrub brush, and trash bags easily accessible will streamline the cleaning process and increase its effectiveness. Stocking up on sponges, rubber gloves, paper towels, and a duster can assist in tackling specific cleaning tasks efficiently.

Consider using specialized cleaners for stainless steel appliances, wood furniture, and tile/grout to address different surfaces with precision, enhancing the overall cleanliness of your space. Including trash cans, recycling bins, and storage containers in your cleaning supplies will aid in organization and waste management during the move, ensuring a smooth and organized process.

Efficient Cleaning Strategies During the Move

cleaning tips for moving

Initiating our cleaning process from top to bottom guarantees that lower areas don’t get recontaminated during the move. Starting with high areas using a long-reach duster ensures thorough cleaning and prevents dust from settling on lower surfaces. Following a top-to-bottom cleaning routine allows for a more efficient cleaning process, as it avoids the need to re-clean areas due to dust or debris falling from higher spots.

When sweeping, vacuuming, or mopping, it’s best to tackle the entire house at once. This approach saves time and energy by avoiding repeated trips to different areas. To optimize our cleaning routine, we should save the bathrooms for last. This way, we can focus on deep cleaning surfaces like tiles, sinks, and toilets without spreading dirt from other areas.

Deep Cleaning Tips After the Move

After finishing the move, we thoroughly clean to make sure every nook and cranny is sparkling in our new home. Deep cleaning after a move is important for a fresh start in our new abode. We focus on cleaning all surfaces, appliances, and fixtures meticulously to achieve a move-out clean. It’s vital to pay attention to details such as wiping down walls, baseboards, and light switch covers to guarantee a deep clean.

Professional cleaning services can also be enlisted to help us achieve an immaculate clean post-move, especially when time is limited. Bathrooms and kitchens require special attention during this deep cleaning process to guarantee a spotless space. By dedicating time and effort to deep cleaning after the move, we set the stage for a clean and welcoming home where we can truly feel at ease.

What our Client Say’s

Actor Alec Baldwin

Quality rug care is essential for the upkeep of any New York home and Haim Shemesh at Sunlight Fine Rug Care & Restoration does not disappoint. I highly recommend them!

Gabriel J. Letizia, Ph.D

“Dear Haim,
It has been so very busy here, thank God, that I never had the chance to formally thank you for the absolutely beautiful job you and your team did with our rugs and sofa. I know when a job is superior and such is the case, much to my surprise, upon entering the apartment after you completed the work.

Thank you again – you will ever be our service provider etc…“

Sunlight Customer, Oriental Rug Cleaning

A few weeks ago, I had Haim Shemesh clean my sofa & I was very pleased. He was professional, the price was reasonable & my sofa looks brand new again!

Sunlight Customer, Oriental Rug Cleaning

I had Haim Shemesh from Sunlight clean all my area rugs. He did a fabulous job! They are all handmade Orientals and he took them to a place that soaks them in a tub and hand washes them the way it’s supposed to be done. They look so much better and brighter Haim came to my apt to give me an estimate, took the rugs, then delivered them back to me a week later. He even helped me set them back up, including moving furniture around to do so. Prices were very reasonable. I highly recommend doing business with him!
