So you’ve just finished a major remodel of your Melbourne home. Or, perhaps construction is finally complete on the new home of your dreams. You’re all ready to get settled into your new home and surroundings. But wait! There’s one more task to complete – post-construction cleaning. This can be a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be with these tips:
Sweep and mop all floors.
Pay special attention to areas around doorways and in corners that may have been missed by the builders. And be sure to sweep and mop the floors in all of the rooms, not just the main living spaces.
Vacuum carpets and furniture.
This will help remove any dust or debris that may have settled since construction ended.
Clean all windows and mirrors.
Be sure to get into all of the nooks and crannies and use a glass cleaner to get them streak-free.
Wipe down all cabinets and doors.
Builders can sometimes leave behind dust and dirt on cabinet fronts and door surfaces. So give them a good wipe-down to get rid of any unwanted residue.
Take out the trash.
This one is pretty self-explanatory, but make sure to take out all of the construction debris and waste, so your new home doesn’t start to look like a mess.
Remove any stickers left behind.
Many builders like to use stickers to identify which room a fixture or appliance belongs in. But once construction is complete, these stickers can be an eyesore. So take a few minutes to remove them all.
Tackle the bathrooms.
The bathrooms can be one of the most challenging areas to clean after construction. Be sure to scrub down the tub, shower, and sink, and wipe down all of the surfaces.
Dust all of the surfaces.
This may seem like a tedious task, but it’s important to get rid of any built-up dust before you start living in your new home.
Organize your new space.
Now that the cleaning is done take a moment to organize your new space to your liking. Put away any leftover construction materials and organize your furniture and decorations.
With these tips, you can have your new Melbourne home move-in ready in no time!
