The first thing that you have to do after moving into your new home except celebrating is to put everything in order which means there would be a lot of cleaning before you can finally settle comfortably in your new abode. This is something that most of us may experience but many of us are also unaware and often frustrated on where to begin.
To keep it simple, this process doesn’t have to be so complicated. However, it depends on the size of your new home, the number of furniture and belongings, and the arrangement that you wanted to make.
Now, the tendency is after putting everything down from your previous home, the place is filled with piles and boxes. Just seeing all that will make everything feel stressful.
Worry not, because here we’ll help you with some cleaning tips that you may find useful in making your new place unlike any other.
First things first, put every box on the part of the house where their contents belong. For example, the boxes containing kitchen and cooking wares obviously should be brought directly to the kitchen while the clothes and mattresses should head straight to the bedroom. The point of this is to organize the cleaning process itself whereas you can clean your home area by area. It easier that way because you already have everything that you need to put there so there’s lesser chance of misplacing your things unless they are randomly put in your box.
Next thing you have to do is to make sure nothing has brought in dirt or dust from your previous home or from the transport vehicle. If you see boxes or crates that are dirty, you can either take them out first to remove the dust or take out its content first before putting the containers outside far from your home so they won’t spread the dirt which would only add extra work. You can use Lola Rola Sticky Mop to conveniently and quickly pick up all the dirt and prevent them from building up.
Now it’s time to sweep and mop the floor, wipe the tables and the countertops. Lola also have Angle Brooms and mops such as the Light and Easy™ Super Cloth Mop and Flexible Dust Mop which you can use to shine your floor. Dusty countertops? No problem! Lola Jumbo Microfiber Cleaning Cloth attracts dirt and dust like a magnet.
After making sure that all surfaces are already neat, it’s now time to organize your furniture and put them where you want them to be permanently placed. Assuming that you finish all of these before the day ends, you can then give yourself some time to set up some design based on your preference.
The last thing that you would want to do is to fix the bed and put on some sheets or at least set it up for you to have a comfortable rest on your first day.
Take note that it is not mandatory to have all of these done on the first day. For some it may less than a day while for some it may take a couple of days. But, it’s still all up to you as well as on the number of help you have. As long as there’s progress on the hours you spent going around your new house, then your first day is worth it.
