How to Clean Your Dream Home before Moving In

Fumigate your home

It is important to fumigate your home before you start off on the cleaning.  A good fumigation will kill off any dust mites in carpets and all infestations in your kitchen cupboards.  Once the fumigation is done with you will be sure that there are no bugs and pests from previous home owners to torment your family.

Wash everything out

The walls, the bathroom, especially the loo, the kitchen oven, all of the cupboards… everything needs to be washed out properly with a good chemical to kill off any germs and bacteria that previous owners and their pets have left behind.  This way you can be sure that your family won’t catch any diseases that might be lingering in the home.

Wash all linen

You should never simply hang your curtains and bedding straight from the old apartment because you will be bringing along all of the dust, insects and infestations that you are trying to move away from.  Wash all linen properly so you can have a fresh start.

Clean upholstery properly

Upholstery contains a lot of spills, sweat and skin debris.  A good carpet cleaning company should be able to clean your upholstery properly.  By cleaning the upholstery you don’t just eliminate bacteria and germs you also give second life to your older furniture.

Fumigate furniture

Cockroaches and other bugs can easily hide away in your furniture.  Before you move the old furniture into your new and just cleaned home you should get them all fumigated so you don’t end up with pest problems from your previous home.
