How To Clean a House Before Moving In

Congrats! You've finally got the keys to your new home! But before you start unpacking those boxes and making yourself at home, there's a crucial step you don't want to skip… giving the place a thorough clean. Trust me, whether it's a cosy flat or a spacious house, you want to start with a clean slate. We're talking about banishing any lingering dust bunnies, giving the floors and carpets a refresh, and perhaps evening uncovering hidden treasures left in the cupboards from the previous occupiers. It's all about that new home deep clean to make your space truly yours. So, let's roll up those sleeves and get scrubbing!

First, Gather Your Cleaning Supplies

Before you dive into the cleaning extravaganza, let's talk supplies! You'll need an arsenal of cleaning goodies to tackle every nook and cranny of your new abode. From gloves to protect those precious hands (check out Poundland’s Lily Household Gloves in large and medium sizes for a snug fit), multi-purpose cleaners to zap away grime (hello, Dettol Tru Clean Antibacterial Surface Cleanser and Dettol Antibacterial Multipurpose Cleaning Wipes), trusty cloths to wipe everything down (grab the Minky Bamboo All-Purpose Cloth for some serious scrubbing power), washing up liquid to keep those dishes gleaming (try our range of Fairy Washing Up Liquid’s available in Original, Lemon, and Pomegranate & Grapefruit), and let’s not forget the big guns – bleach to blitz any lingering stains and smells (Domestos Thick Bleach in Pink Power and Original, or the Astonish Multi-Purpose Cleaner with Bleach in Peony Bloom). With these essentials in your cleaning collection, you'll be ready to tackle that clean house before moving in like a pro!

Start With One Room at a Time

Let's talk strategy! When it comes to tackling the mammoth task of cleaning your new home, it's all about keeping calm and taking it one room at a time. Trust me, trying to clean the whole place in one go is a sure-fire way to send your stress levels through the roof. Instead, try focusing on one room at a time. This not only makes the whole process feel more manageable but also allows you to give each room the attention it deserves. Picture it: starting with the kitchen or the bathroom, giving it a top-to-bottom scrub, and then moving on to the next space feeling like a cleaning superhero. By following your new home cleaning list, you'll have your place sparkling in no time!

Dust and Disinfect All Surfaces

It's amazing how quickly those pesky dust particles can pile up, especially if your new home has been sitting vacant for a while. But fear not, because we've got the scoop on how to banish dust bunnies and ensure your space is spick and span for your grand move in day. Dusting and disinfecting all surfaces around your home is the key to making sure you’re stepping into a fresh, clean environment when you officially move your belongings in.

Think about it: wiping away the grime of the past and starting anew. For dusting, look no further than the Flash Duster Dust Magnet Starter Kit, available at Poundland – it's a game-changer!

Don’t Forget to Clean the Less Obvious Areas

While you're busy cleaning away at the obvious spots like floors and countertops, don't forget about the sneaky little areas that can easily go unnoticed. We're talking about those less obvious spots like door handles, light frames, and even the walls themselves if they've been left with dirty surfaces. Giving these areas a good wipe-down can make a world of difference in making your new place feel fresh and clean. So don't overlook the details - grab your cleaning supplies and get to work on those less obvious areas. Your home will thank you for it!
