Moving into a new home or apartment can be exciting! The idea of a new beginning gives rise to ideas about interior decorating and hosting fabulous parties with family and friends. But do you think about how clean your new home may be before you move in? While older homes and apartments may show the need for a deep clean before you rest your head, even new builds can benefit from some attention from a professional cleaning service. Deep cleaning a new home is a nearly-universal priority, and of course you can always do it yourself, but here are some reasons why you should consider professional cleaning before you settle into your new home.
#1. You’re giving yourself a fresh start, your new home deserves one too. Moving comes with plenty of new opportunities. Whether you are moving for a work opportunity, because your family is growing (or shrinking), or because you just found the perfect place, the possibilities for your new residence are truly endless.
Having your new space professionally cleaned certainly fits with the theme of giving yourself and your family a new start. If your new space is an older building, there may be areas that have not had attention for a period of time; and enlisting a cleaning service for a deep clean will make your new space feel like home that much sooner.
#2. Different strokes for different folks! Everyone is unique, and one place where our differences truly shine is in how we exist in our home spaces. While some people may see no issue with practices such as bathing pets in their bathrooms, others may cringe at the very thought. With this in mind, hiring a cleaning crew before you move in will give you the peace of mind that every inch of your home is spotless for you and your family.
Personal quirks and cultural requirements aside, having your new home cleaned by a professional is a way to ensure that you are able to maintain the same level of cleanliness as you had in your previous residence. For example, if you have dietary or religious restrictions that require your food to be prepared in a certain way or kept separate from certain other foods, a professional deep clean will set you up for continued success in those efforts.
#3. Take it easy! The first year you spend living in your home will go by in a whirlwind! What looked like a spotless apartment when you moved in in July, may become close to unliveable come April. This can be due to a number of factors, but sometimes dirt missed before your move can begin to show just as you are getting settled in. If you have your home cleaned before you move in, you can work to keep up that standard of cleanliness over a long time which will help your home stay cleaner, longer.
Even people who do not see themselves as “neat freaks” are impressed when they find that keeping their homes clean is much easier after a professional has cleaned their home. Think about it, moving into a home (especially one that has been pre-loved) may have remnant of people from years, even decades before. A professional cleaning service may be able to spot and remove a 20 year old stain from your baseboard that you hadn’t notcied before you signed on the dotted line.
Moving can be stressful; no matter if you are relocating down the road or halfway around the world, there seems to be an endless list of things to do. By hiring a professional cleaning service (which is more affordable than you may think), you gain the peace of mind that the home you are moving into is a fresh and clean as possible. Taking the time and setting aside the budget to plan a professional cleaning of your new living space is a great way to kick off your next adventure in your new home.
