5 Tips for Cleaning Up Before Moving Out, Ewa, Hawaii

Cleaning is an important but often-overlooked part of moving. Whether you’re leaving a house or a rented apartment, you’ll want to do a thorough cleaning job in every room while making sure screws are removed from the walls and any chips or gouges are repaired. M. Dyer & Sons, the best moving company in Honolulu, offers their top tips to help you make the cleaning process simple.

Before Moving Day: 5 Cleaning Tips

1. Check the Walls

Remove any screws from the walls where you hung pictures or mirrors. Holes should be smoothed over with putty, and chips or scratches should be painted over.

2. Remove Carpet Stains 

Vacuum the carpets if you have them, and do your best to remove any stains that weren’t there when you moved in. You may even want to hire a professional to shampoo the carpets. 

3. Remove Soap Scum

movingSoap scum is an unwelcome surprise for the new residents. Clean the bathroom thoroughly and bleach the grout. 

4. Clean the Fridge & Oven

Once you’ve removed all your food items from the fridge, clean crumbs and spills off the shelves. That goes for the oven as well—clean it thoroughly with a brush to remove baked-on crust.

5. Sweep & Mop

If you have wood or tile floors, sweep and mop in every room to remove dust and dirt. You want your space to look clean and smell nice to help the new residents have an easy moving experience.

You should always do a thorough cleaning and inspection of your home before moving out. To make things even easier on yourself, hire the best professional movers in Honolulu: M. Dyer & Sons.
