If you are moving out to a new house, you must maintain your reputation by ensuring that you engage in move out cleaning activities. This will not just help you get back your deposit but will improve your image among your former neighbors.
The first thing you ought to do is to talk to the utility companies (water and electricity) so that you turn off the utilities registered in your name. If there are any bills, ensure that you settle them before moving out.
The next thing you must do is to remove all the nails, or staples stack into the ceilings, walls and doors. If there are writings on the wall, use the magic erasers to remove them.
“If you think and plan your move out a few weeks in advance, everything should go smoothly on the moving day.” says Tom Stuart, founder of one of the best moving companies in Bournemouth.
Cleaning the Kitchen
Start by cleaning the sinks. The procedure is simple; just fill it with warm water, add a few detergents and ensure that it is thoroughly cleaned.
Drain the water and wipe down the faucet. If the sink is made from porcelain or stainless steel, using an old tooth brush or any other small brush will give you better results.
The floor must be thoroughly swept and moped. Pull out the stove and the refrigerators so that the part of the floor on which they stand can be thoroughly cleaned. Carefully pull them so that you don’t damage the floor and the tiles.
Clean the Bathroom
You must ensure that the bathroom is thoroughly cleaned. Check the tub, the shower, remove all the buildup and wipe down all the fixtures.
The Living Room
After you are through with the kitchen and other rooms, turn your attention to the living room. Clean the windows, and wash the blinds. Ensure that you replace all the burnt out lights. If possible, upgrade the bulbs. Lastly, spot treat the carpets and mop the floor.
