1. Dust and vacuum all surfaces including windowsills, baseboards, furniture and ceiling fans.
Begin by dusting the window sills with a soft cloth or duster to remove any dirt or debris that has accumulated over time. Then use a vacuum cleaner to remove any remaining debris from the window sills and other surfaces like tables, chairs, and couches.
2. Wipe down walls from top to bottom with a damp cloth.
Use a clean, microfiber cloth and gentle cleaning solution or all-purpose cleaner to remove any dust, dirt, or stains on the walls of your new home. Make sure to rinse the walls after wiping them down in order to avoid any streaks left behind by the cleaner.
3. Clean doors, frames, handles and knobs.
Use a soft cloth and cleaning solution to wipe down your door frames, handles and knobs. This step is especially important if you plan to install locks on the doors as they need to be cleaned off before installation so that they will fit properly into place without any resistance.
4. Vacuum carpets and rugs.
Carefully vacuum all of the carpets and rugs in your new home with a high-powered vacuum cleaner to remove any dust, dirt or debris that has accumulated since construction was completed. Pay special attention to areas like bedroom floors where people are likely to walk barefoot more often.
5. Sweep/mop all hard floors.
Sweep or mop any hardwood, tile, or laminate flooring in your new home to ensure they are spotless before you move in. Make sure to get into corners and other hard-to-reach spots that may not be visible at first glance as this will help reduce chances of dirt or dust accumulating later on.
6. Clean inside kitchen cabinets/drawers as well as outside of them.
Cleaning out the kitchen cabinets and drawers is an important step in a new construction house cleaning checklist. This step helps to remove any dust or debris that may have accumulated during the construction process and creates a clean surface for you to store your items in when you move into your home.
7. Clean appliances such as refrigerator, ovens, microwaves etc.
Each appliance should be thoroughly cleaned with a damp cloth before use in order to ensure it is safe for cooking food and other uses that may come up down the line. Make sure to read over the instructions manual for each appliance before attempting to clean them, so you know exactly what type of cleaning products and techniques are recommended for that particular item.
8. Wash all windows both inside & out.
Washing your windows is essential if you want to ensure a clear view out of each window in your home. Make sure to use appropriate cleaning solutions and a squeegee, as well as wear protective gloves while doing this task in order to avoid any cuts or scrapes on your hands due to the glass.
9. Empty trash cans throughout the house.
Emptying all of the trash cans in your new house will help prevent odors from forming down the line while also helping keep it clean prior to moving day. This step can be done either before or after you’ve completed the other tasks on this new construction house cleaning checklist.
10. Finish up by polishing any chrome fixtures or accents.
Polish any chrome fixtures in your bathroom, kitchen and other areas where they may be present to give them a shiny, clean look before you move into your new home. Make sure to use a soft cloth and appropriate cleaner for this step as it will help prolong the life of the fixture and make sure it stays looking great for years to come.
