There are fewer things more satisfying than moving into your new house and setting everything up to make it truly feel like home. Before using All My Sons’ packing services to unload your boxes, it’s a good idea to take the opportunity to do some cleaning while your new home is at its emptiest. Here are some guidelines from our All My Sons Raleigh, NC Movers for getting your new home cleaned and sanitized before you begin unpacking.
Give the Kitchen a Once Over
Put together a mixture of 1 parts baking soda, 2 parts water and scrub the appliances, tile backsplash and floors. Before putting your food and dishes in the kitchen, use this non-toxic method of cleaning to ensure that any germs and bacteria are killed.
Sweep the Floors
If your new home is carpeted, arrange for a carpet cleaning service to come and steam clean it before your Raleigh movers unload your boxes from the old home. Sweep and mop wood floors with a mild soap and water mixture to clear up any dust that may have settled in hidden places.
Investigate Your Walls for Stains
Take some time to check the walls for fingerprints, scuffs from furniture and other stains. The previous owners will have more than likely painted them already, but if they haven’t, you’ll want to mix a bucket of water and dish soap to wipe away any of the small stains you find.
Scrub the Bathroom
Fill a bucket with baking soda and water to rid the bathroom of any bacteria that may have grown since the previous owners left. Put on some gloves and grab a sponge, and scrub the toilet, tub, and everything else before using Raleigh movers and professional packing services to unload and set up your new home.
