Floors

Depending on the types of floors are in the new home, you will want to research the best ways to clean them. For all types, it is important not to let too much water sit standing as it may seep into crevices. Use a mop and mild detergent to clean every area of the floor. It is especially important to sweep and mop under and behind all appliances, as these are the most common areas previous owners may not have touched prior to moving. Use warm water and non-abrasive cleaners. Being your first time in the space, you will need to put in some elbow grease to make sure they are in tip-top shape.

Appliances

Before you use any of the appliances in your new home, clean them. The last thing you need is someone else’s germs and old food spills in your space. It is important to make sure the exterior surfaces are clean, but more important, the interior. For the refrigerator and microwave, use a cleaning solution and clean all interior walls, shelves, lights, and drawers. For ovens, be sure to thoroughly clean the drawer underneath the stove as well as the burners. You may want to consider purchasing new drip pans as well. This can be an inexpensive purchase for your home. For cleaning the interior of the oven, you can use oven cleaners and double your cleaning power if the oven has its own self-cleaning feature.  

Drawers and Cabinets

Another area that can easily get overlooked are drawers and cabinets. From the kitchen cabinets and drawers to the bathrooms, you will want to give all of them a thorough cleaning prior to putting your stuff inside. To help get dust and dirt out, use a vacuum attachment to get hard-to-reach places. Prior to using a cleaning solution, wipe all surfaces down first. For a thorough cleaning, use a scrub brush to ensure any particles are picked up that you can wipe away. Make sure the drawers and cabinets are dry before putting anything in them. It is also important to make sure there is not any standing water left in them, especially when it comes to wood.
