Moving House – Moving Out Cleaning Checklist

Moving House – Moving Out Cleaning Checklist

Moving house is a stressful time. There’s so much to do, and sometimes it feels like there just aren’t enough hours in the day! But don’t worry – we’ve put together this checklist from expert cleaners that provide move in/move out cleaning services in Malaysia. We’ll cover everything from what to do before your move, right through until you’re unpacked into your new home.

Vacuum Floors

Make sure you wipe down all walls with a damp cloth to remove any dust, dirt, or cobwebs. This will help your new home feel welcoming instead of dirty! Vacuum the carpet in every room before moving out so that it looks its best when you leave.

You can even take this opportunity to give the carpets quick steam clean, too – just be careful not to drip water on floors as mopping them could cause swelling and warping if they’re wooden boards underneath.

If possible, use an old sheet over furniture that’s hard-to-move like large armchairs or bookcases, rather than dragging them across the floor.

Clean Inside Cabinets

Move everything out of your kitchen cupboards and drawers, ensuring that you wipe them down inside and outside. This will make the cabinets look much cleaner when it comes to moving back in!

It’s also a good idea to remove handles from appliances like microwaves or kettles as they can get grubby over time.

You could even replace these with new ones before handing over the keys – although remember not to do this if there are any warranties on appliances still active.

Remove Remaining Personal Property

Make sure you’ve removed all of your personal belongings from home before leaving – including any Christmas decorations or other festive items.

This also applies to food and drink, as leftover stock will attract pests and cause smells.

Remember that some appliances like washing machines and dishwashers may need turning off at the mains power supply by a qualified electrician if they contain hot water or chemicals too.

Wipe Down Appliances

If you want to make sure appliances like ovens, microwaves and fridges look as good as new before moving out, use a damp cloth to wipe down any fingerprints or food spillages.

Don’t forget the door handles either! You may even want to take this opportunity to give appliances a quick clean with some soapy water – just be careful not to damage components if they’re electronic.

Ensure that everything is dry before replacing items back into their original homes after cleaning too.

Fix Holes and Drywall Repairs

If you notice any holes, cracks, or other damage around the home, make sure to fix these before handing over keys.

It’s important not to try and cover up existing problems by making new ones – just patch them up with plaster of spackle instead.

Once dry, paint over the area so that it looks like a professional job! You can even DIY these patches if you’re feeling extra industrious too. Just remember to allow enough time for repairs as well as painting!

Dust and Wipe Surfaces

Remove all of your personal belongings from home before leaving.

This also applies to food and drink, as leftover stock will attract pests and cause smells.

Take time to wipe down surfaces in every room with a damp cloth that has been dipped into hot water mixed with detergent soap.

This is particularly important if you have pets at home too! Always make sure to dry off excess moisture afterward, so floors don’t warp underneath carpets either by using an old towel for this purpose instead.

Vacuum Floors Make sure you wipe down all walls with a damp cloth to remove any dust, dirt, or cobwebs. This will help your new home feel welcoming instead of dirty.

Scrub and Clean Bathroom Surfaces

Scrub and clean bathroom surfaces by removing all of your personal belongings from home before leaving – including any Christmas decorations or other festive items.

This also applies to food and drink, as leftover stock will attract pests and cause smells.

Use some soapy water with a scrubbing sponge to get rid of stains on sinks, tubs, showers, etc.

Remember not to use an abrasive pad, though! Stubborn marks can be removed using baking soda instead if they’re persistent ones that don’t come off easily. Rinse away soap residue afterward, too.

Finally, replace shower curtains back onto their tracks after cleaning them (you may need someone’s help for this). Make sure there is no mold anywhere in bathrooms either – if you.
