Moving to a new home is one of the most
inevitable parts of life. People move for many reasons. Some, move because of
education. Some move to a new home to start a family and a new life. Some have
to relocate to a new city and a new home owing to their job transfer. In any
case, moving to a new home can offer you lots of new possibilities. A new home
is like a bare campus. You can make it your own with the right kind of décor
and items that will represent you, your taste and your personality too. But
before you start decking it up the way you want, you need to consider a very crucial
part. And that is the deep cleaning of the house.
The previous inhabitants of the house, no
matter how well-intentioned they were, are most likely to leave something
behind, dirt, and grime, or it can be a broken piece of furniture. Now, before
you start making a pre-owned house your own, you need to know about some expert
cleaning hacks that will make the home livable again. Take a look at the
following cleaning tips before you start.
Clean High First:
In a home, it is the ceiling and the things
hanging from them that relegate dust unlike anything else. The ceiling fan, the
overhead light fixtures, the open shelves hanging on the wall high can be home to
a lot of dust and grime. This is why, one of the most important cleaning tips and tricks is to start with cleaning high first. Get
rid of the dust that can shower upon you and the other things in the room, thus
making everything dirty all over again after you are done with a cleaning spree
in the lower levels. Use a broom and wiper for cleaning and you are sorted.
Go On a Fridge Mission:
The next target for your cleaning hack should
be your fridge. Yes, let’s assume that the previous owner hasn’t left any food
or packets inside it. But before you settle down, it is necessary for you to
clean the fridge at the earliest. This way you will make sure that you have the
fridge completely free of any dirt and the unhygienic things that can ruin the
food that you will be storing inside. Use soap and warm water to clean the
shelves. For stuck-on gunk, use warm water and white vinegar. Make sure the
fridge is completely dry before you put the shelves and drawers back.
the Kitchen Game:
Now, focus on the rest of the kitchen. There
are many areas in the kitchen that can be particularly tricky to clean. The
sink, the stove, the oven, and microwave oven, the chimney, the cabinets (both
inside and outside), all of these places can accumulate a lot of dirt. After taking
care of the things overhead like light fixtures and ceiling, move on to the
stovetops, countertops and cabinets. If there are some rigid stains, use baking
soda and hydrogen peroxide for rubbing the stains off.
Onto the Bathroom:
As far as bathroom cleaning hacks are
concerned, the first and foremost thing that you need to do is replacing the
toilet seat. It is a very small investment that you need to do. But when it
comes to hygiene, it is a necessary step. Clean the soap holder, toilet paper
holder and bath fittings. Make sure you are also disinfecting the place
properly. Use an antibacterial spray for this. For cleaning the faucets, taps
and showerheads, mix lemon with water and rub on the surface with a cloth.
So, now as you are empowered with these home
cleaning tips what are you waiting for? Embark on the cleaning spree and make
the pre-owned building your home.
