Three Reasons To Hire A Cleaning Service Before You Move Into Your New Home

Moving into a new home is an exciting transition, but you'll want to get settled in as quickly as possible. A residential cleaning service can help to make your home move-in ready so all you have to do is arrange your furniture and unpack your boxes. Here are just a few reasons to use a professional cleaner for move-in cleaning.

Sanitizing Bathrooms

While you might be meticulous about cleaning your bathrooms, the previous residents in the home might not have been so thorough. Bathrooms can be breeding grounds for a range of illnesses and conditions, such as gastrointestinal diseases, athlete's foot, salmonella and E. coli. Having your bathroom cleaned and sanitized before you move in can help to provide you with a fresh, germ-free environment for you and your family. Ask your cleaning service about what is included in bathroom cleaning. The service should include sanitizing counters, tubs, showers and toilets, and it should also cover scrubbing and cleaning of the cabinets and flooring surfaces. You can also arrange to have fixtures and hardware polished for a beautiful finishing touch in your new bathrooms. 

Carpet Cleaning

Carpets can trap dust, dirt and allergens, and having them cleaned is critical if you or any of your family members have allergies. Ask your cleaning company to have the carpets cleaned before your move-in date so they have time to dry completely. In addition to cleaning the carpets, your professional cleaning service can deodorize them to remove any lingering odors, such as cigarette smoke. You can also have the cleaning service scrub the tile, hardwood or laminate floors when it tackles the carpet so all of your flooring surfaces are fresh and clean for your move-in date. If you do have the floors cleaned, be sure to have shoe covers ready for your moving crew to keep the flooring looking great.

Kitchen Cleaning

Cooking your first meal in your new kitchen can be a fun way to settle in and make the new house feel like home, but you'll need to make sure the room is clean before you start prepping meals. Your professional cleaning company can tackle every corner of the kitchen, from scrubbing cabinets and placing new cabinet paper down to cleaning out any appliances that come with the home. Ask to have the oven, stove, range hood and refrigerator sanitized before you move in, and have the counters scrubbed down and sanitized as well. If you have a pantry, ask to have each shelf vacuumed and scrubbed before you place any food on the shelves. You may even be able to have the cleaning service caulk the shelves along the walls to create a secure seal that can help to keep out small insects.
