The process of moving into a new home is one that requires extensive thought and planning. Your first priority should always be to make sure your home is clean and hygienic before unpacking anything.

Putting in the hard work upfront, and making sure your new home is spotless will allow you to kick back and relax after the move is complete, meaning you can enjoy a well deserved rest when the last box is finally unpacked.

1. Start with the Sinks and Toilets

Anything found in the bathroom and kitchen should be near the top of your to do list. To be absolutely sure you are being as hygienic as possible, you should ensure the relevant areas are spotless before unpacking things like plates and personal hygeine items. Some places that are often missed are hard to reach areas and corners where mold, dust, and mildew can accumulate so be sure to keep an eye out for these.

2. Mop the Floors Throughly

When moving into a new property with carpets it would be wise to consider hiring a professional cleaner who offer steam cleaning services. By doing so, you ensure they are completely free of germs before relaxing on them.

Hardwood and laminate flooring however are much easier to clean yourself. Be sure to give them a proper vacuuming beforehand to remove any dust and debris which may be lying around. Once this is done give them a thorough mop and clean with a mild cleaner to ensure they are germ free and sparkling.

3. Get Those Windows Open!

Contrary to popular belief, you do not need to overload your new home with air fresheners and scented products to give it that “new home” smell. The best thing you can do is to open the windows for long periods of time when you just move in, this will give your home a fresh and natural smell. If insects are a concern then you can keep blinds or curtains shut to prevent any unwanted visitors getting into the house.
