Move in day — it’s a day that you’ll remember not just because you’re in the home of your dreams, but also because it’s a day of chaos. Whether you just purchased your first home or your fifth, buying a new home is always such a treat, but can be a lot of hard work. One thing they don’t tell you when buying a new home though is the importance of cleaning it out before you move your stuff in. While you might not see the big deal in hiring a cleaning service or doing it yourself to ensure your home is clean upon arrival, it’s imperative that you take the time to focus on different areas of your new home to make sure they are immaculate.

The Answer

If you are wondering, “Why should I clean my home when I move in?” Then we have the answer for you. Simply put, you’ll eliminate any germs and dirty surprises when you clean it before you move in. You won’t have to worry about doing a deep clean through the entire house and also maneuver around furniture. In short, hiring a cleaning service before you move in will eliminate moving into a nightmare, instead of the dream house you expected.

Areas That Should Be Cleaned

A house won’t clean itself. Either you or a cleaning service will need to make sure it’s spotless. A day before you move in, you can concentrate on the areas that should most definitely be cleaned, especially before you place your furniture around your home. At Tiffany Maid, we have a Move-In service that is experienced and thorough. If you hire our service, you won’t have to worry about hidden surprises or dust bunnies. Moving in on that first day will be just like you imagined it, instead of finding sticky cupboards while you put away your dishes or years worth of dust under the fridge. If you don’t have time to clean before you move in, then concentrate on these must-clean areas.


The kitchen is where you keep your prized cooking and baking ware. It’s where you make your masterpiece meals and it’s where you should never have to worry about dust or leftover crumbs from the previous owners. This room you’ll want to concentrate on extra hard because kitchens get messy quickly and easily. In the kitchen, you’ll want to concentrate on the appliances, the fridge, the stove, the cupboards, the sink, and the cabinets. If you want to go above and beyond, then we recommend cleaning the floors and the walls as well. You don’t know what the previous owners have cooked in the kitchen, which is why it’s essential to get in between every inch of the kitchen to eliminate leftover debris.


The bathroom can get a little scary, especially when you don’t clean it. Prior to use, make sure that you clean your bathroom thoroughly. You’ll want to scrub the shower, the bathroom tiles, the toilet, the sink, and the cupboards. If there is a bathtub in the bathroom, then we highly encourage you to clean that as well. The bathroom is where you go to get clean, so don’t you want to make sure that it’s immaculate?

For a few other places to clean, don’t forget all of the floors through the house, the pantry, the closets, and the walls if you want to get extra spotless. If you don’t have time to do all of this, then don’t worry, Tiffany Maid caters around the Ayer, MA, area and would love to come help you out.
