Cleaning Checklist for Moving Day


I don’t know anyone who loves the work of moving, but most of us have to do it at some point in our lives. For me, I’ve had to move more times than I’d like to think about. There are all kinds of articles teaching how to pack the house, and what not to forget, but what about all of the cleaning that needs to be done? I have a cleaning checklist for moving day, to help with one or both of the houses involved.

Cleaning Checklist for Moving Day

Whether you’re preparing your house for a move, or you’re prepping the new home to be moved into, moving is a lot of work! Maybe you just want a security deposit back, and need to leave that house sparkling clean! We’ve been trying to sell our house for 5 long months now, and I can’t tell you what a lifesaver a few Swiffer products have been for me. Some days I feel like all we do is clean! 

The Swiffer Green Box and a Cleaning Checklist for Moving Day

My kids don’t seem to grasp the need for a clean house for showings, and it can be super frustrating. I’ve found that with the right Swiffer products, in the right locations, I can have the kids do a quick clean up and be out of the house in no time at all. I believe preparing the house for showings has ultimately helped train the family for the BIG cleaning day, after the move. That’s when our big green Swiffer Box will come in handy!

It’s up to you when you want to use this Ultimate Cleaning Checklist. If you want your house sparkling clean to help it sell quickly, then this list will have you covered. I personally like to move into a super clean house, so I will be going over this list before I move into the new house. You never know how clean the previous owners left it!
