If You’re Getting Ready for Your Next Move and Need Help Moving Furniture and Other Household Goods, Use this Spring Cleaning Checklist to Prepare
Spring is often the start of the busy season for movers, and it’s also the season when most of us look at our homes and decide it’s time to donate, declutter, and clean out. If you’re getting ready for a move, spring is a great time to decide what items you can let go of, and how to better organize your household. At Matheson Transfer, we can help with anything from moving furniture to a storage unit, to assisting with your residential relocation. We can also help you prepare for the organizing and cleaning tasks ahead.
Our spring cleaning checklist can work whether you’re moving or not; if you’re a renter, and leaving a rental unit or apartment, it can be especially good to complete these tasks for a good final walk-through with your former landlord.
Kitchen: wipe off every flat surface with a disinfectant, including the walls. (We know stove splatter happens!) You’ll also want to clean behind the appliances, and know that Matheson Transfer can help with moving furniture and appliances when needed. Sweep and steam clean the floor to get it into its best shape.
Bathrooms: dust the exhaust fan, vent, and lighting fixture. Clean and disinfect each appliance in the bathroom, including the shower, bathtub, sink, toilet, door handles, towel racks, and door pulls.
Living room and dining room: wipe down baseboards, door frames, window frames, and molding. Dust out the corners of the room and anywhere else there might be cobwebs or dust. Vacuum, sweep or steam clean the flooring as appropriate.
If you’re getting ready for your next move, this spring cleaning checklist can be helpful year-round to help you prepare to leave your former residence. Moving furniture and appliances to clean behind them might seem excessive, but our experienced teams of packers and movers have seen renters lose security deposits too often!
