Cleaning Checklist for Moving Into a New Place

Cleaning Checklist for Moving Into a New PlaceAre you Moving?

When it is time to move, there are a million things to do and a finite time to accomplish them. You’re thinking about everything from finding a new place, packing, transporting all of your possessions, cleaning your old place, cleaning your new place, decorating your new space, and settling into a fresh start. It can be overwhelming, but you shouldn’t let the dirty stuff get in your way of an exciting time in your life. 

Let the professionals handle all the cleaning for you so you can focus on all the other important stuff when moving. Asheville Cleaning Company offers a variety of cleaning services to fit any of your needs. It can be a full top to bottom clean of the entire apartment/house or just a specific room or area that needs a little more extra attention. 

If you are determined to do it all, we have compiled a cleaning checklist of some of the top places that accumulate dust and dirt in your living spaces that can be forgotten. We also know that when moving into a new place, sometimes the spaces are not as thoroughly clean as they should be, prompting us to create a move-in cleaning checklist to ensure a truly fresh start and allow you to breathe easily. 

Move In Cleaning Checklist

After finally finding the perfect place and arranging for all of your belongings to arrive at the new spot, the last thing you want to do is scrub and clean the grime from the previous occupants. But it is a completely necessary step to give you peace of mind that you are starting with a healthy and clean environment, and you are setting yourself up for success in the new place. 

If you are moving from out of state or if the move happened so quickly, you might not have time to visit the new place in order to clean it while it is empty. Asheville Cleaning Company will make sure that your new place is spotless before you even arrive. Asheville Cleaning Company offers residential move in and move out cleaning services for the Western North Carolina region. It doesn’t matter if you are moving into a brand new house or if the previous occupants left behind a very “lived-in” space; we can handle it all.
