3 Tips for Cleaning Up the House After a Move

Get your house in order after a big move with Misty Clean!

Moving can be an incredibly exciting process and the start of a great new chapter in your life, but it can come with plenty of mess! From the initial cleaning needs to the chaos of unpacking – it’s no secret that a move means a lot of cleaning! If you’re about to move, consider these cleanup tips to help make a move-in process much more comfortable.

Clean Before You Move 

While it’s not always possible, if you can go into your new home before you begin moving your stuff in, it’s the perfect time to do a pre-clean! Some rental companies will hire cleaning services before having new tenants enter, but often you’ll open your new front door to find that there’s a layer of grime from the previous occupants. Before you move in is the perfect time to have a reputable cleaning company come in to make sure your new home is sparkling! Otherwise, taking a mop and broom to empty floors is much easier than once everything is boxed up. 

Have A Move-In Plan 

Bringing all of your belongings into your new home can come with a lot of unwanted dirt. From the dust from boxes to the dirt on you and the mover’s shoes as you cart things in – you’ll be bringing in more than just your furniture! Having a plan to minimize the dirt is a great way to keep you post-move cleanup to a minimum. Consider picking up a few plastic tarps and extra washable entry rugs to position in the high traffic areas carefully. Using these two in tandem will help keep the dirt off your new floors and carpets. 

Unpack Right Away 

After all the work and hubbub of the move, it can be tempting to let those boxes sit for a while. Unfortunately, the longer you wait, the less likely you are to unpack, and the more added dust you’ll have from boxes. When possible, unpack and remove your boxes from your home as quickly as you can. Even if the contents are just on the floor or tables, putting away singular visible items is much easier than a contained box.
