General Home

Here are some common things around the house to check off the list:

Windows – Smudged, speckled windows are an eyesore, hit these with a glass cleaner and microfiber cloth to get them crystal clear.

Light Fixtures – Use a vacuum cleaner to clear any caked on dust from your light fixtures.

Ceiling Fans – Make sure to give the ceiling fans a good dusting before turning them on.

Flooring – Use a steam mop to give all floor surfaces including ceramic tile, vinyl, laminate, marble, stone and hardwood a deep clean.

Carpet – Make sure to vacuum carpets thoroughly to get rid of any dust and other debris.


Your bathrooms are the most important rooms when it comes to cleanliness. Here are some things that you should check off your cleaning list:

Bathtub/shower – These surfaces can be a breeding ground for mold and bacteria. Use a bleach-based cleaner to get these sanitized.

Exhaust Fans – These are often forgotten, but they can really affect the air quality of your home, give these a thorough dusting to get rid of any buildup.

Toilet Seats – While you can go through the effort of cleaning these, it’s much cleaner and time-efficient to purchase new seats and covers for your toilet.

Sink – Just like your tub and shower, you should give your bathroom sink a thorough cleaning with a strong cleaner to get rid of any mold and mildew.


Cleanliness in the kitchen is very important as it is the room where meals are prepared. Make sure you get these checked off your list:

Fridge – If you are inheriting a fridge from the previous resident, you want to make sure it’s completely clean before storing food in it. Use a mild cleaning solution to soak the shelves and drawers and use a food-safe disinfectant to clean the interior.

Countertops and cabinets – These surfaces can get sticky and discolored overtime from cooking grease – give them a good scrub with a sponge and mild cleaner.

Stove – Give the stove a good degreasing by wiping the surface down with some mild soap and warm water, remove the burner covers and soak them in soapy water as well.
