The Ultimate Moving Guide For An Easy Move
Move In Cleaning Services
When it’s time to move you have so much stuff! The only way to make moving out a little more comfortable is to plan it carefully and embrace the following tips and hacks
Cook In Advance
Before the move you should be preparing some meals in advance, because no one is going to have time to cook while moving, nor while unpacking in the new house. The best way to ensure you won’t be living on fast food for the next weeks is cooking crockpot meals in advance. To do this, just prepare bags with all the ingredients needed for a crockpot meal and freeze them. When you don’t have time to cook, let the crockpot do its job, after tossing everything inside.
Set Up The Utilities
No one wants to move into a new home without utilities. Unfortunately, many people end up doing just that. Don’t be one of them and call the utilities companies in advance, making the arrangements needed to set up everything in the new house. Also, print a file with all the utilities numbers, in case you will need to contact them during the move.
Save Money On The Move
Don’t settle for the first moving company you find; keep looking and, more important, keep playing with the moving dates. Moving services are expensive, but you can save a lot of money by paying attention to the deals. For example, most companies offer discounts for moving during weekdays. The time of the month is also important: most people move at the end/beginning of the month, so companies offer discounts for middle-month movers.
Keep All The Receipts
Some moving costs are deductible, so keep all the receipts from the move.
Move Management – Moving House Cleaning Plan
A question we often get when people are looking to move is “How clean is a seller or tenant required to leave a house or unit once moving out?” As you load the last of your belonging into the moving truck, unfortunately your hard work isn’t done yet. Before any relocation is complete, it is essential to thoroughly clean your house or apartment to pass the all important final inspection with either your landlord and or the new owners of your home.
When there is an absence of any legal requirement to clean the house before moving out, most sellers will take special steps of their own to present the home in an acceptable condition, for the buyers or for handing back to the landlord or leasing agent. It’s understandable that after moving all day, sellers or renters will often be too tired to spend a lot of time cleaning but unfortunately that’s no excuse to not get it done.
For this reason, having a “moving house cleaning plan” set in place is an important way to stay organised and clean efficiently after any relocation. Your first step in home cleaning before you move house as previously mentioned is to adhere to any specific cleaning regulations set in place by your body corporate, landlord, or real estate agent.
Depending on what was stipulated in your lease, you may be required to steam clean the carpets, clean your oven, or even hire a professional cleaning service to do the work and show receipts as proof of work done.
How to clean a house you just sold or are vacating?
We have all been there; the temptation to opt out on those last few cleaning chores is a force to be reckoned with! But don’t give in. How dirty you leave your home isn’t just about etiquette—it could also cause problems with the sale of your home if you are selling.
Post-move cleaning tips
You put everything in its place and start to relax. Then you figure out that you need to do additional cleaning. At that point, you might need all the post-move cleaning tips that you can get. And that is exactly the meat and potatoes of this article
Post-move cleaning tips – what you should know?
To be really effective with cleaning, you need to do one room at a time. The best place to start is the bathroom, of course, but here is a nifty list:
The Rest Of Your Home
Clean your bathroom first
To start things off, we will begin in the bathroom, as any of the respectable moving companies will tell you. The reason for this is simple. You want to do tackle the worst when you have the most energy and motivation. You want your bathroom to shine and you do not want to be tired. Start off by removing all of the stuff that you can, so you can approach most of the room. After that, start cleaning!
Post-move cleaning tips – the bedroom!
The next room that we are going to devote our attention to is the bedroom. While you may ask why won’t we save this room for last, it is because we want to be able to sleep in a nice bed if we feel too tired and wish to continue our work tomorrow. How’s that for one of the post-move cleaning tips?! However, even if that does not happen, having our bedroom clean is always a good thing! Make sure to remove all of the dust in the room because dust can cause allergies.
Clean kitchen thoroughly
The third room will be the kitchen. Again, same as the bathroom, you will want to move everything so you can approach corners and difficult places. This is especially true for spaces behind the fridge, stove and any other “fixed” kitchen element. If you have some elements that you can not move, then you might need some professional cleaning products. It is a wonder what we can get nowadays. Basically, if you think that you have a problem, you can bet that someone else also had that problem and that someone made something that will solve it. Just google your problem and you can order a nifty thing that will make that problem disappear
Tips for Cleaning Your New Home Before You Move In
The last thing you want to do is clean. You just packed your entire life in boxes and loaded them unto a truck. And you still must drive the distance, unload and unpack. Just the thought of going back in your old place and picking up the mess you left is daunting to say the least. However, you do want your security back don’t you? If so, quickly replace the thought of a cleaning rag in your hand with a wad of cash, and you are almost guaranteed to get the burst of energy you need to clean.
This brief guide will give you some quick and efficient cleaning tips to help you tidy up your old place so you can move on with your new life. Just remember, the cleaner the apartment, the quicker your security will end up right back where it belongs–in your hands.
Cleaning Supplies and Getting Started
Ideally, you took pictures when you first moved in as to document any damage the former tenant made. With said photos, you will have a reference point of what the place looked like when you handed over your security. Your goal now is to get your digs back in the same shape so your money will be fairly returned.
After taking pictures, the next thing you will want to do is stock up on cleaning supplies. The basic materials you will want to have handy are a vacuum, dry and damp cleaning rags, sponges, paper towels, Windex, Pledge, Scrubbing Bubbles, Easy Off Oven Cleaner, Lysol Toilet Bowl Cleaner, Fantastik, Comet, Resolve Carpet Cleaner, Mr. Clean, toilet brush, mop, gloves, air freshener and garbage bags
Clean Little Before Big
Obviously the easiest way to clean your apartment is to start in the room furthest from the front door and eventually end up at the entrance. Cleaning this way assures you will not track dirt back and forth. However, before you start tackling the rooms, take care of the tedious tasks first.
