If you’re planning to sell your home, the objective is to make it as appealing as possible to your potential buyers. The most affordable way to do this is to clean it thoroughly. Here’s some effective house cleaning tips to help you out.
Get Rid Of Clutter
A lot of potential home buyers can’t see past the clutter and dirt. If the house is too crowded with your stuff, then they will assume that the property is too small for their things. Having too much clutter also causes problems related to safety and it’s also a buying hazard.
Someone who trips over things that are left on the floor or stairs won’t have a good feeling about your home. Apart from that, a clutter free and clean environment looks better than an untidy and grimy one.
Start your house cleaning Myrtle Beach by purging your home, such as the garage, attic, and basement, of times that you no longer need. Things that still work or in good condition can be donated or sold. The remaining things can be thrown out if they’re no longer working or don’t serve a purpose. Rooms will look more spacious and the closets will also look much bigger. The shelves will appear roomier to possible home buyers.
House Cleaning Tips
Concentrate on the room that possible home buyers appear to be interested in. These could be the kitchen, bathroom, dining room, and living room. Check every room as a possible buyer and find what catches your eyes first. Then, you should follow the left to right and top to bottom rule when you’re cleaning your rooms. By doing so, you will get to clean all of the surfaces in your house.
Pay close attention to the bathrooms and kitchen. Don’t forget to check the cleaning product labels to make sure that they’re right for the surfaces that you need to clean. You will get extra cleaning power if you use abrasive cleansers especially for soils that are difficult to remove such as grease residues and food particles.
But, they might also be too harsh for certain surfaces that are scratched easily, such as solid surface or laminate countertops. Additionally, gel and liquid cleansers are much less abrasive compared to powders. You can always hire cleaning services instead of doing all these on your own.
Fight Off Mold and Mildew
Mold and mildew are common in bathrooms. With all the concerns and health problems related to them, potential home buyers are far more sensitive when it comes to these things. Get rid of mildew stains from grout in between the tiles, shower curtains, and shower doors using liquid household cleaners or bleach.
It’s better to use non-streaking cleaning product, like multi-surface or glass cleaner, for mirrors and shower doors. Keep things clean by using a small squeegee on the shower walls or drying the handles and faucets ever after use to prevent water spots.
Things to Remembers:
- Vacuum the carpets
- Wash the windows
- Repaint the walls
- If repainting is not an option, clean the surfaces to remove fingerprints, grime, and dust.
