Moving? Here's Your Cleaning Checklist
Moving just adds more tasks to the seemingly endless to-do list. Between finding the perfect new home, transferring your services to your new residence (internet, cable, electric, etc.) and tying up all loose ends at your current place, sometimes seemingly small tasks can get forgotten about. Don't let cleaning be one of those things that slips through the cracks of chaos.
Cleaning your place before you move out may seem tiresome, but it needs to be done. Make the process easy and stress free with this simple checklist!
Scrub soap scum from all surfaces
Bleach hard to reach places
Wash all drawers and cabinets
