Pre cleaning tips

In this section, we would like to suggest few things that are very much important. These sounds simple but will determine your cleaning approach. We have listed out these for you, just follow the below-mentioned points.

  1. Be prepared from the beginning. Think about which approach will you take – cleaning by yourself or assigning to professionals. Remember both have pros and cons.
  2. If you are cleaning yourself then you should be aware of following points:
    • Do the cleaning just before the lease end. If you clean the house long before moving out then it is likely to settle dust and dirt on the surface of almost everything.
    • Clean the house only after moving your belongings to another house. If the house is empty then we can clean almost all aspects of the house.
    • In most cases, the landlords are likely to make an issues with the carpets. Hence, if it’s dirty, then it is better to assign professionals. They have better equipment and can handle the cleaning responsibility properly.
