Housemaid’s signature move-in house cleaning service is specifically designed to bring your new home or apartment to surgery room levels of clean. We deploy a highly-trained HouseMaids team of sanitary engineers to clean, scrub, and give your new home a complete move-in cleaning disinfection makeover from top to bottom.
Have Your New Home Cleaned Before You Move In
When you move into a new home you have no idea how clean the previous residents kept it. They may have had children or pets who left messes on carpets and floors where bacteria continued to grow. Put your mind at ease and hire a professional cleaning service to disinfect the entire home! Our disinfection and sanitation soaking methods effectively kill 99.9% of all viruses, bacteria, microorganisms, and germs.
Where Homes Show the Most Wear and Tear
Carpets show wear and tear in high traffic areas. If you’d like to put off replacing them for now, there are a few simple tricks we can employ during your move-in cleaning to bring worn carpets back to life. Particularly around entrances and staircases, a proper shampooing and industrial vacuuming can perk up the most matted carpet and look like a freshly laid improvement.
When a home has been long-occupied, you will see evidence in places where people frequently touch. Edges of doors, the wall around a light switch, and banisters will show the signs of dirt and oil from many hands over many years. With our multi-step cleaning and polishing process, these areas will be stripped of staining and look fresh and clean by the time you move in.
Tile and grout can show the wear and tear of previous occupants. There’s nothing worse than purchasing a brand new house and then looking at your kitchen or bathroom and knowing the grout hasn’t been scrubbed in thirty years. We pay special attention to these details to get the fresh, bright look you want.
Light fixtures often look dull or yellowed with age. Much of this can be resolved with a quick cleaning. All light fixtures should be wiped down, particularly if they are near the stove and may have been discolored by smoke or steam. Vacuuming up-turned fixtures can also clear them up by removing dust from inside.
Permanently installed window treatments like blinds can be difficult to clean. Leave it to us to get years of dust off the blinds and fingerprints off the glass so that the view out of your new windows is clear and bright.
Eliminate Health Hazards
If you have been lucky enough to inherit appliances with your new home, it is important that these are not simply left in place, but rather pulled out and thoroughly cleaned. Dust, old food, and even mold can become trapped behind and under appliances.
The interiors of appliances should also be disinfected and thoroughly cleaned. From vacuuming the vents of a dryer to wiping out baked-on cheese at the bottom of the oven, our appliance cleaning strategies will leave you with a home that has no sign of anyone else ever having cooked or washed there.
Dishwashers and washing machines should also be pulled out. Leaks over the years may have caused mold or rotting beneath them. The dust has likely collected beneath them as well.
Checking and cleaning for mold around bathroom and kitchen fixtures is important as well. Water may leak down the back of a faucet and cause mold or rotting that is only visible looking up from below the sink. A thorough cleaning of the cabinets under sinks can tell you if there are any leak issues.
Air vents, filters, and radiators must be vacuumed or replaced for the health and safety of all occupants. It is important to remove the potential dust and debris collected in these. Dust is largely made up of dead skin cells and other biological materials, meaning it is more than preferable to get these dust traps emptied out before the heat or air conditioning begins blowing in your new home.
Homes That Have Been Unoccupied
Perhaps the greatest challenge for move-in cleaning relates to homes that have been unoccupied. Whether it was purchased as a foreclosure, part of a probate decision or the owners simply moved away last year and have been trying to sell, a house that has sat empty all year is open to mold, cobwebs, mildew, damp smells, pests, and a settled feeling that only a good cleaning can solve.
Don’t get overwhelmed with a house that has been unoccupied. With a little bit of shine, these can turn into true gems. Let us bring life back to your new home so you can move in as soon as possible.
Properly cleaning and disinfecting a new home should always be done by true professionals. So why don’t you give yourself a break from unpacking and call the move in cleaning experts! We will transform your new house into a home, exceeding your standards every time!
