Cleaning Your New Home So You Can Move In

Buying a new home is always an exciting and sometimes stressful time in a person’s life. Going through the grueling mortgage approval process, trying to find the perfect home, and then signing your life away at the lawyer’s office can be a real nightmare. Now, that you have the keys to your new home in hand, you should really consider having professional cleaners come in to make the home sparkle. Naturally, the house must be broom swept according to most contracts however; it’s a good idea to have a company come in to do a really deep cleaning of the home.

Germs in the Carpet

It’s amazing that so few people understand that germs live and breed inside of the carpeting of the house. Just imagine your children playing on the living room carpet that is laden with the germs leftover from the previous owners. I’ll bet that you just cringed at the thought of it. Germs can live in a carpet for decades, causing the people in the home to experience frequent illnesses. Nobody wants to deal with being sick constantly, especially kids being sick. Hiring professional carpet cleaning services will ensure that the carpeting in your new homes will be free from the old owner’s germs.

Mildew in the Bathrooms

Bathrooms are a breeding ground for mildew and mold spores. Even though the grout is probably sealed, there is still the potential for these dangerous spores to develop and grow. Besides, you never know if someone “missed” the toilet and sprinkled on the wall or floor tiles. It’s just disgusting to clean up after other people, if you don’t know how to do this safely. It’s always best to have a professional cleaning services company do the dirty work for you.

Years of Dirt on the Tiles

Even if the former owner was a neat freak, it’s doubtful that they took the time to polish the floor tiles before they turned the keys over to you. A thorough cleaning of the tiles will ensure that your new home looks great, as well as removes any germs, bacteria, or dirt hiding in the texture of the tiles. This is pretty darn hard to do with the typical mop and bucket. A tile cleaning company can actually make the tiles look like they’ve been freshly installed.

Don’t Bring Germs In

More than likely, you’ll be bringing some area rugs into the new house. It’s important that you have them professionally cleaned to ensure that you’re not introducing germs or other bacteria to the property. This is especially important if you are buying any used items for the home. You could always be bringing bed bug or cockroach eggs in. Professional cleaners will ensure that you don’t end up with any unexpected guests hatching in the area rugs.
