The Importance Of Move Out Cleaning
Moving – a single word that can bring the mightiest of men to their knees and send friends and family running for the hills. Whether you’re renting or buying, moving your life from one location to another can be feat of Herculean proportions: boxing, dismantling, lifting, loading, not to mention the unloading, unpacking, and reassembling! And God forbid there are steps at either end of the move. Makes the Twelve Labours seem tame in comparison.
After all the work of squeezing the entire sum of your worldly possession into a truck, the last thing you’re going to want to do is clean. Why should you? You’re leaving, right? You just want to get to your new home or plcae, unpack, and put this whole ugly incident behind you. But stop for a minute and take a look around. What do you see?
In the living room, the carpet that once lay hidden under the sofa is replete with dust bunnies, cookie crumbs, and assorted detritus that only a couch can attract. If carpet is part of your décor, you’ll notice discolorations here and there from the time junior forgot how to drink and dribbled juice on your berber. What about the dust on the mantle? Or the windows that haven’t been cleaned since last spring.
In the bedrooms, there’s likely the spot under your bed that hasn’t been cleaned since you moved in. Dust and dirt in the closets. Dust on the window sill. And what about the spot on the wall where that smoky candle left its mark.
And the kitchen is often the worst culprit of all. If you’re taking your appliances with you, you’ll uncover a wealth of residue when you move the refrigerator and the stove. Those hard to reach places in the cabinets will reveal their hoard when the word “moving” is uttered.
So now that you’ve seen what you left behind, think ahead to the arrival at your new place. Would you want to see the new place in the same condition as the old place? Of course not. You’d want your new place sparkly, clean, and full of hope for the future. HouseMaids can offer that…the sparkly and clean part that is; we’ll leave the hope for the future up to you.
Move out cleaning is an unspoken prerequisite that all homeowners abide by. Think it will cost an arm and a leg? Think again. Once an apartment or a house is empty, it’s remarkably easy to clean. Rooms resemble squares again rather than oddly shaped polygons that require a physics degree to navigate with a vacuum. There’s no lifting or moving – you’ve already done that part, thank you – and very little reaching or straining because all the hard-to-reach places have been revealed by your faithful efforts. What before would take a day, now takes a matter of hours…or even less.
So even though you’re yearning to be done – yearning to leave the old behind and get on with the new – there’s one thing holding you back from the life of rainbows and lollipops ahead of you. There’s one thing holding you back from a clean conscience: the dirt you leave behind. Hyperbole? Perhaps. Kind of gross? Absolutely. But you can have that clean conscience (sorry, we can’t do much about the rainbows and lollipops). All it takes is a quick call to HouseMaids. Our professional, highly-trained staff can – with a little soap and water – clean your walls, floors, ceilings, carpets, and tile and make it move in ready.
