If you are planning to move houses and your current one and the new one is in need of a good clean, you’ll have plenty on your plate. Not to mention all of the packing and actual moving that needs to be done.
A lot of people believe that cleaning services are just for those who rent because it helps them get their deposit back. This is not the case at all! A cleaning service can help you both when you move into a house and even when you move out of one as well.
We’ve used cleaning services for a variety of moves including moving houses, selling houses, rental properties, and after a tenant moves. Face it, people like homes they are going to be potentially living in to be clean. Enter cleaning services.
DIY and Harmful Chemicals
When you have a pet, it’s very important that you don’t use harsh cleaning chemicals. Chemicals can harm your pet and can even cause problems for you if you have kids.
If you try and do it yourself, you may be tempted to use harsh chemicals to get the job done faster. However, this can lead to you staining the surfaces in your home which no one wants.
When you hire a cleaning service, you can get the whole job done without having to snap on those rubber gloves. No one really likes those things anyway. Plus you don’t have to worry about them using harmful chemicals either. Today most of them have access to high quality, commercially graded cleaning products as well as green and non-toxic formulas.
If you, or even if someone in your home suffers from allergies then a move-in or even a move-out cleaning service can help you TONS. When you move furniture around, this kicks up a lot of dust and can trigger allergy attacks.
A cleaning service can help you avoid this. They can also help you get those hard-to-reach places that you might have missed or forgotten about. This is especially helpful when moving into an older property. Who knows how much germs and dust were left behind.
A Fresh Start
When you hire a cleaning service to take care of all the cleaning for you, all you really have to do is sit back and relax while they take care of everything. You can move into your home without having to worry about cleaning right off the bat. All you have to do is set up your furniture and go out to dinner for a couple of hours. When you come back, your home will be absolutely spotless (minus the moving boxes). This will give you encouragement to actually start unpacking.
Of course, if you want to make your other property more appealing you could hire a cleaning service as well. Making sure your house is in its most presentable state is something all buyers love.
1/10/18 Hello everyone! I forget to tell you, during Christmas break, we added a new puppy to our house. We’ve never had a puppy before so we are still going through the learning curve. Whew! Saying cats are so much easier is a big understatement. Puppies literally are furbabies. She’s now 11 weeks old and is a ball of energy. Her name is Oreo 🙂
