If you are tired of your old, dull-looking rooms, or are simply moving away and need to sell your home, you need to do some cleaning and refreshing first. It’s always better to live in a cleaner, nicer home, and potential buyers will look at it in the best possible view and pay the highest price.
Cleaning services is the easiest, fastest, safest, most reliable, and, in some cases, the greenest, way to go. If you have the means necessary to use the services of a professional cleaning agency, don’t hesitate – it will save you time and effort, and you will likely get your house cleaner than anytime before. Professional cleaners are professionals for a reason, they have the experience, the knowledge, and the tools to do in a day what would take the average person a week or more.
Home Cleaning to Increase Marketability
If you don’t want, need, or can’t afford a cleaning agency, roll up your sleeves, get a duster, a cloth, and a vacuum, and brace yourself for a dirty ride.
You can begin by…
- Dusting all shelves and surfaces
- Remove any and all the cobwebs
- Vacuum the carpets and mop under the rugs (professional carpet cleaning maybe needed)
After that, you can proceed to the kitchen and bathroom. Clean and polish the tiles, shine the faucets, carefully clean the power outlets. Scrub the bathtub as well as the toilet bowl and shower – not with the same cloth, of course!
Window cleaning is not to be avoided. The clean panes will freshen up your home, and the view to and from the outside will be much nicer. Don’t forget to clean the window on both sides. You’d be amazed at how many people only clean the inside and then wonder why some stains and smudges cannot be removed.
If you want to be green while doing all that, use green cleaning products – it’s a much healthier option as it spares you the standard products’ potential toxicity.
After all the house cleaning, you can take out some paint and further freshen the place up. If you want to improve the view for yourself, use colors that will reflect your personality. If you want to sell the house to the highest bidder, go for neutral colors. What is the best option in that case – it’s light earth tones and if the buyer doesn’t like the paint colors you’ve chosen remind them he or she can change it the second the deal is done.
Now go outside and take a look at the garden or lawn. You might have to do some clearance. Mow the lawn, do some weeding, if you have a tree in the yard, do some leaf and branch clearing.
And so now the job is done. You now have a better-looking house for yourself or for somebody looking for a nice clean house.
