Moving Home: Cleaning Guide | What do You Need to Clean?


moving house cleaningMoving house is often one of the most stressful experiences people go through in their lives, but more often than not, the packing is only the beginning. Just the idea of having to clean your entire house from top to bottom, after you’ve spent weeks packing up all your belongings, is enough to give anyone nightmares. Not only that, you will likely have to clean your new house to ensure every area has been covered before you begin to unpack. 

But no matter how tired you are, the thought of a returned security deposit and the prospect of moving into a clean home will win out. We’ve created an easy to follow guide on how to efficiently and quickly give both homes a thorough clean during the moving process. 

What supplies will you need?

Buying the right supplies is crucial to ensuring your house is cleaned properly, so we recommend buying:

  • Rubber cleaning gloves
  • Sanitising sprays and bleach
  • Cleaning cloths and sponges
  • Furniture polish
  • Brooms, vacuum, dustpan

Make sure you pack your cleaning items in your car and not with your movers, so you have easy access to them when you get to your new house.


When should you start cleaning?

Wait until you’ve moved absolutely everything out of your home until you begin cleaning your old home, otherwise, the cleaning process might be more arduous than necessary as you cover places you’ve already cleaned. Moving boxes cluttering the house will make it difficult to give your old home the thorough clean it needs before you hand over the keys.


Recommended methods

  • Top to bottom, back to front

Cleaning your house at the top and from the back first makes sure you aren’t having to go back over areas you’ve dirtied again whilst you’re cleaning.

This method is a lot more efficient than cleaning room by room, as when you have equipped yourself with the correct equipment to clean the floors, it’s common sense to mop all the floors in the house instead of just in one room.


Don’t forget about the exterior

If you have a garden or patio, it’s worth giving them the once over by removing any weeds, mowing the lawn, and jet washing the patio, so you’re garden is looking as smart as possible before the new owners move in and you move into your new home!
