When you move into your new home, and you’ve unpacked your boxes, you need to give the place a deep clean.
Tackle Bathroom Mold
Bathrooms tend to gather mold over time if they’re not cleaned regularly. This tends to occur mainly around the caulk of the bathtub and other areas where caulk is used. Sometimes the mold can be barely noticeable, and other times it can be pretty obvious. So, how can you get rid of it? For me, the best way is to simply use some cotton balls drenched in bleach. Rub the cotton balls over the caulk and that mold will lift away.
Hose Down Vents
The house is full of lots of small vents that help to keep your home fresh and ventilated. These vents are more important than you might realise. That means that they need to be kept as clean as possible at all times. If you move into your new home and find that they’re covered in muck and dust, you’ll need to clean them to make sure they work as they should. The best way to clean them if they haven’t been cleaned for a while is to take them outside and hose them down with water.
Clean the Top of the Cooker
Cooked on filth on top of the cooker can be really hard to remove. It’s also really disgusting and not very nice to deal with. But unless you want to buy a new cooker, you’re going to have to deal with that mess. It’s not too hard to do though, so don’t worry. The best way to clean that dried mess is to use baking soda and hydrogen peroxide. Mix the solution together and scrub the top of the cooker.
Steam Clean Any Stains
When you notice stains on the furniture or carpets, the best solution is to steam clean them. Carpet cleaners can be expensive, but you don’t really need to use them. You can steam off the stains using an iron. But if that doesn’t work and the stain is more deep-rooted, you should consider using steam cleaning services. They use professional techniques, so they will be able to lift the stains.
Clean Out the Air Conditioner
If your new home has an air conditioner, it’s best to clean it even if it looks like it’s in good condition. Remember, the air conditioner will be pumping air into your home, so you need to make sure it’s clean. If it’s not, the air conditioner will be pumping unclean air into the home. All you need to clean the air conditioner is a good vacuum cleaner. This will get rid of all that dust. Dusty air conditioners can even become fire hazards, so make sure you do this.
Make Use of Vinegar
Vinegar is one of the best home cleaning tools you can find. There are so many different things that you can use it for. They’re great for cleaning bathroom and kitchen faucets. They destroy the limescale that can build up on taps and shower heads. It’s also useful if the kitchen sink is stained and unclean. It lifts of grease and dirt and makes the process of scrubbing the dirt off much easier.
