Plan of Attack

Ideally, you’ve already moved out all of your things. But if you’re moving within the same town and have been taking several car trips as well as a big moving truck trip, then you might still have little things to pick up around the apartment. If so, then start by throwing everything into boxes and putting them into your car. You’ll need a clutter-free room to really get down to house cleaning.

For our purposes, let’s assume we’re cleaning a two-bedroom, two-bath apartment. If you are moving out of a larger home or apartment, we highly suggest calling in professional house cleaners like Best Clean Ever and save yourself the time and headache of cleaning more rooms! Contact us today to learn more about how we can help make your move more efficient.

If you’re still set on cleaning your own place, we suggest this plan of attack. Remember, you need a plan and an order of cleaning if you don’t want to have to retrace your steps (or track dust and grim into an already clean room). Start high to low in terms of cabinets, closets, and storage. Proceed from low-traffic spaces to high-traffic spaces. Here’s a general order for cleaning various rooms:

  1. Bedrooms
  2. Common areas (living room, hallways, hall closets)
  3. Kitchen (one of the hardest rooms)
  4. Bathroom


As house cleaning professionals, we know how hard it is to clean an entire home! It’s a time consuming process, but there’s no better feeling than looking at a sparkling home. And know that no matter how you feel about your landlord, they don’t want to go to the extra step of hiring cleaning crews. In fact, they’d be delighted to see how clean your home is and give you back that full deposit!

So crack open a cold drink, sit down on the freshly cleaned floor, and celebrate your hard work. You did it! Now time to unpack those boxes at your new place…
