Moving Checklist: Cleaning Your Old Home


Last updated:

This moving checklist focuses on cleaning your old home thoroughly before you leave. It covers everything from removing personal belongings to ensuring all surfaces, floors, windows, and fixtures are spotless. Attention is given to cleaning often overlooked areas such as window sills, baseboards, and air vents. The checklist also includes a thorough cleaning of all appliances, sinks, toilets, and bathtubs/showers. After disposing of any remaining trash, you'll check closets and storage spaces for forgotten items and do a final walk-through to make sure your old home is clean and tidy for its new occupants.
