Are you moving into another home while still trying to sell or rent out your old home? Perhaps you might be a landlord, renting out an apartment or duplex after a resident has left. Regardless of the scenario, this is where it can become a bit stressful to find the time to get the old dwelling cleaned, and ready for a new renter or buyer. Nadia’s House Cleaning will share where one of our Move In and/or Move Out cleaning services can benefit you in many different ways.

Move In & Out Cleaning Services Let You Focus on Moving!

For those who are moving, this can become a rather stressful time in their life. There is so much that needs to be done and usually in a small amount of time. Moving requires packing, contacting and scheduling with a moving company, changing address, turning off and on power and other utilities and for those with kids, registering at new schools etc. Since this can be a busy and stressful time, it helps to spread out the responsibilities of the different tasks. Having a professional cleaning company come in and clean the older home or dwelling to prepare for a new renter and buyer, can help remove some of the stress of the move. The same can be said for moving into a new home. By hiring a professional cleaning crew to help clean and prepare your new home, gives you the reassurance that your home is clean, disinfected, and ready for you and your family. Hiring a professional doesn’t just help remove the stress, but also provides peace of mind. You know your old home is clean and presentable for potential buyers or renter. You’re also reassured that the home you’re moving into is clean and has a safe and healthy environment.

Save Time & Money with a Move In & Out Cleaning

Another benefit of using a cleaning service is that it can help save you time and money. For a deep and thorough cleaning of carpets or flooring, walls, cabinets, windows, bathrooms and light fixtures, etc. you may need to buy or rent the equipment and cleaners needed to properly clean your old or new home. On the other hand, a professional cleaning company already has all of the tools and cleaning agents necessary for the job. Of course they can help save you time as well. Using a cleaning crew means you can use that time to help deal with the other aspects of the move. Deep cleaning, especially if you’re left to do it by yourself, can take hours to complete and even over the span of several days. Instead of under going the cleaning yourself spend that time with your family and organizing of the move.

When it comes to cleaning up the home of a hoarder, it’s hard to try and figure out where to even start! Think of a scavenger hunt when you imagine what it would be like to begin the cleanup, only it wouldn’t be much fun. Finding something of value will be exciting but the person who is suffering from a hoarding disorder has a hard time assessing the true value of their possessions, making informed decisions and having a sense of normalcy in their lives. It’s a big job that can be dangerous and needs a lot of organization. It’s time consuming and challenging and will require a team of people to get it done efficiently. Cleaning up the home of a hoarder is more than just organizing and cleaning. Homes of hoarders are often infested with pests like rats, mice, cockroaches and other animals and these homes are also breeding grounds for mold and bacteria.

Hoarding Cleaning Checklist

1. The right protective gear is needed. Gloves, face masks and body suits. These homes can expose you to biohazards like Hantavirus, E. coli, Staph and Histoplasmosis making this the most important step to protect yourself in all phases of the cleanup.
2. Separate all items. Keep, donate and trash sections will need to be set up. A rule of thumb to use in determining which pile an item goes into is, if an item hasn’t been used in a year or more or items that are broken belong in the trash pile.
3. Hoarding is a mental disorder. This needs to be remembered. According to the ADAA, “Hoarding may be present on its own or as a symptom of another disorder. Those most often associated with hoarding are obsessive-compulsive personality disorder (OCPD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), attention/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and depression”.
4. You will need help. It is very hard for the person suffering with the hoarding disorder to let go of their items and may need the help of a therapist or counselor that specializes in hoarding disorders. This can make the cleanup process more difficult. The job might require professionals that have experience in biohazard cleanup and will be needed in the event of a death in the home or homes of animal hoarders. Other biohazard material include mold bodily fluids and animals that may be decomposing.

In an effort to help you get organized as well as your children establish clean housekeeping habits, there are a few things you can do to implement new protocols in your home that will help enhance the cleanliness of your home as well as the organization of your kids and yourself. We at Nadia’s House Cleaning have compiled a brief list of ideas, tips, and advice to help you establish the new cleaning order in your home for the new school year below.

Good Back to School Housekeeping Cleaning Tips

Food prep station: Tackle the pantry and get it reorganized and cleaned. Remove any nasty crumbs and liquids that might have spilled and get any foods not properly contained in seal-able containers. Be sure to assign a space in the pantry that is quick and accessible for quick lunch and breakfast items. Have allocated areas in the fridge where they can quickly grab the prepared perishables and teach them to put together their own lunches together before the bus arrives. Applesauce, cereal bars, other snacks, hand wipes, napkins, and zip top bags should also be accessible for quick preparation. At the beginning of the week, either you or your little ones can make sandwiches or other entrees properly sealed to last at the beginning of the week to make packing lunches especially easy and time efficient.
Homework Station: Whether you have a desk, or a place at the table where your little one knocks out the homework, put together some organization to the chaos along with some supplies. A few bins, or a caddy, along with an adequate supply of paper, notebooks, pencils, and even project supplies handy can make homework get done smoothly. The school papers can quickly add up. Being organized with the printouts, notes, and other paperwork that needs to be held on to should be stored in folders or binders to avoid the clutter.
Clean Clothing & Closets: Whether your children are wearing uniforms or street clothes, ensuring there is a space set aside for clean clothing designated for school is helpful. Not only will it keep everything tidy, but it will be easy to find during the early morning chaos of getting ready for school.
Bathroom Cleaning: Clean out the bathroom from last year’s grooming remnants. Any close to empty or completed hair aids should be tossed and replaced. Stretched out hair bands, broken clips, and other accessories that look more or less outdated or deteriorated can also be thrown in the trash and replaced with new and trendy accessories. Get the caddies and baskets in the bathroom to ensure everything is nicely organized but still easily accessed to avoid leaving the bathroom in a messy state.

Nadia’s House Cleaning Lists Tips to Keep Your Dog & Cat Hair in Check

Importance of Grooming Your Dog: It is a well-known fact that pets go through times of year that they shed more than others. When the weather warms up and the summer is in full effect your pet will need to drop some of the fur that they were holding onto. This is a way for them to stay cool by getting rid of their heavy winter coat. That means that the amount of pet hair in the summer will be more substantial. One of the best ways to keep your pet hair under control is to have your pet brushed often to help pull out the loose hair. You also want to give them a bath or send them to the groomer on a regular basis. This will help to get the hair under control and rinsed out as well as controlling the amount of dander.
Vacuum to Remove Pet Hair: This can be an annoyance to someone that has a busy life but it can really save you from some major hair buildup. You want to be sure you take time to run the vacuum on a regular basis and even daily. You need to also empty the canister in the vacuum and clean the filters to make sure they are not continuing to send these hairs and dander through the house. You want to invest in a good quality vacuum that can be made for pet hair and dander.
Lint Rollers Remove Pet Hair: If you have a pet then you know that walking out the door in dark clothes without hair in your clothes is unlikely. The hair and fur is on the couches, carpets and more. All you have to do is to sit down before you leave to have a problem. You can use your lint roller for what it is made for and that is pulling debris from your clothes. That is not the end of the lint roller. It is a great way to also clean off the fur and hair from the couches and chairs so when you sit down it is clean.
