3 Reasons You Should Deep Clean a House Before Moving In
Congratulations on the new place! While it can be a little sad to leave your old home and the memories you made there behind, it can also be exciting to start fresh in a new house. You’ve probably already been thinking about how you’re going to design and decorate your new place to really make it feel like home, and you’re ready and waiting to bring your vision to life!
There may be just one thought holding you back, though: should I clean the new house before moving in all my stuff? Well, you certainly don’t have to, of course, but it’s not a bad idea. Here are 3 reasons you should deep clean a house before moving in.
1. You Don’t Know What the Last Residents Left Behind
Your new home may look clean at first glance, but what happens when you take a closer look? Are there some tucked away spots that they missed? What is that sticky stuff?!
You don’t want to risk leaving any unidentified messes around your new home because who knows what the last people left behind! Taking the time to do a good deep clean will allow you to find and eliminate any suspicious messes – and potential health risks - before they can become any kind of an issue in your home.
2. You’re Going to Be Busy After Moving In
Moving into a new home is no small task. You need to pack up and organize everything into boxes, load it all onto a truck, clean your old house, bring your belongings to your new house, unpack everything…you’re looking at hours and hours of work.
By deep cleaning your new house before moving in, you don’t have to worry about doing it on moving day or even during the first couple of weeks while you’re settling in and putting everything away. There’s enough to stress out about during the move-in process – why not take some pressure off by getting the cleaning done in advance?
3. It Gives You a Fresh Start
Moving into a new home is like starting a brand-new chapter in your life. You’re going to be creating new memories and exploring new opportunities here, so you probably don’t want remnants of the last residents all over the place. They have nothing to do with your life in your new home.
A good deep cleaning will help erase any signs of the previous homeowners, such as fingerprints on the windows, lingering pet odours, and any leftover child-related messes (parents whose children like to grind glitter and slime into the carpets know about this!). This leaves you with a home that looks, feels, and smells fresh and new, which is perfect for new beginnings.
