Moving in? Here are Chopra’s Top 3 Cleaning Tips
Are you moving in soon? It not so pleasant living in an unclean house especially if is one that you’ve just moved into. It is already an exhausting job moving from house to house, packing and then unpacking. When you first arrive in your new home, more often than not it is a gamble whether the previous owners cleaned it or not.
Although you may have to do extra work, here at Chopra, we’ve created our top 3 cleaning tips for moving in!
- Clean from top down and from the inside out and outside in
- Vacuum, sweep and then mop
- Sponge and Hot water can go a long way
When cleaning the number one rule of thumb is to always clean from the top and then you’re your way down. This is because as you clean, gravity will cause the dust to fly everywhere and eventually float down. If you started from the bottom and then cleaned up, you would be double handling because the dust from the top will fall back onto the parts you’ve already cleaned. This is no different when cleaning out rooms. Start from the inside of the room first and make your way around and out.
Vacuum all the carpet and soft flooring to clean hidden dirt and dust bunnies. If you can vacuum the hard floor use the appropriate attachments or use a broom and sweep up the rest. Then with some strong anti-bacterial floor solutions, mop the hard flooring with windows opened to air dry it.
Use an all-purpose cleaner with a sponge and hot water and wipe down everything with a surface. This may include table tops, closets, counters and cabinet doors. Using hot water makes the surfaces gleam, the sponge helps removes grime and dirt and the all-purpose cleaner kills bacteria.
