How to Clean Your Apartment Unit Before Moving In

Read on to learn how to make sure your apartment unit is clean and ready for you before moving in!

While your new apartment might look perfectly clean, giving it a very good deep clean yourself before you move in your possessions can ensure that everything is disinfected and give you a more clean slate. It will also allow you to remove all those hard-to-reach areas before getting your furniture in, and you’ll make sure your apartment unit smells nice, and everything is set in place. There are a handful of different ways for you to go about this as a potential future apartment renter. Read on to learn how to make sure your apartment unit is clean and ready for you before moving in!

Start Cleaning from the Top

Whenever you start to clean, always start from the very top and work your way down. And we are talking all the way at the very top. Things like your ceilings, high cabinets, and refrigerator tops are likely to generate a lot of dust. When you clear off that dust, there is an excellent possibility for it to dirty your already-cleaned countertop or floor. So, being with the “high priority” areas before anything else. While you are working on your ceilings, look for any evidence of leaks from the roof that might signal more significant issues than simply a dirty apartment space.

Kitchen Cleaning

Your kitchen is one of your most heavily used spots in your home. Your kitchen will hold a lot of different stuff, and by cleaning it out first, it will be ready when you have to take a quick break from unpacking for dinner or lunch. It is really crucial for you to deep clean your kitchen when you move in, as it might be the only time you will have to empty your fridge or cupboards completely. Take advantage by cleaning or disinfecting your space, and pay close attention to those microwaves, sinks, and ovens.

Bathroom Cleaning

Another room that will hold a lot of your different belongings and gets plenty of use is your bathroom. While your landlord hopefully already did a nice deep clean of this spot, it is best to give it one more good run-down. After all, you will want to be double sure that all of that gunk and grime from the old tenant is gone. You will feel a lot better knowing that you have looked over this space on your own and everything is clean, disinfected, and thoroughly sanitized.
