Most people consider the pre-moving period the most hectic and exhausting. And true it is. One has to look over the nooks and specifics of the household, to inspect the goods and evaluate which ones should be moved into the trash bin and which ones to keep. This is what spring cleaning in general, refers to and this entire task consumes a lot of time and the hardest part is to get started with it. If you too are undergoing a similar stressful situation but could not figure out from where to start exactly, then you should follow the below-mentioned tips!
• Formulate a plan
Just as you need a fool proof plan for your relocation, you also need an idea for cleaning up your space ahead of a move. If you think, you will get straight into the packing process as and when you decided, without sorting out it in the first place, you will end up getting even more confused and fatigued. So, soon after a shifting date has been finalized, you should curate a plan as to when you are going to clean up and organize your space and make it ideal to be packed and moved.
• Focus on one area
You will realize there are several places and corners in your household, like your kitchen area, your library hall, the cupboards in your bedroom and the attic needs a revisit and reorganizing before you pick up stuff from there and get it packed for the move. So, double-check to see if the basement area is thoroughly cleaned, the objects in the kitchen area have been sorted and the essential ones have been kept aside, and so on. Pay attention to one particular area, say your living room or your study room, and wrap up the packing of the section first, before moving on to the next space. To make the sorting process easy, keep bins/ baskets designated to each - keep, sell and donate and keep tossing your items in those, accordingly!
• Get rid of the trash
De-cluttering your space before a move does wonders for your relocation. You figure what exactly you need and what all you can let go of ahead of your move. The more you sort out and segregate your items, the cautiously you choose ultimately decides how well planned and easy you are moving! Remember, when you move less, you cut down on your moving cost, and this makes your move economical and easy.
• Design your inventory
While you are sorting out your items, you will have a clear idea of the innumerable things (furniture, clothes, and appliances) that you have in your place. Not that all of your goods and possessions would be listed in your moving inventory, but only the needful ones. So, jot down the names clearly with the prospective moving costs for the same. If you have hired experts from Agarwal Packers and Movers, they will prepare your inventory after evaluating your items, but since you are doing that, you can even note down the designated room name in the inventory so you can have an idea of how much stuff you are moving from one particular section of your room.
• Deal with appliances
Running a deep cleaning of all your electronic appliances, especially the refrigerator and microwave oven is needed. Also, make sure you wipe out the surfaces from inside once you have pulled out everything kept within (dry foods, snacks, and bottles of liquids kept in the freezer and fridge) and unplug them beforehand. Dealing with appliances required careful handling of the same, so make sure you seek guidance or get to the user guide while undoing complicated appliances.
• Rinse clothes and linen
Who loves moving into a new home with filthy clothes and dirty linen? Nobody does! So, make sure you do a deep cleaning of your clothing section, especially the ones that you won’t be wearing anytime soon so you can keep them for the time being in fresh and clean condition. Mark a day or two for this purpose, so you have ample time to dry them out and iron them before packing. Same for your unclean bedding and linen – make sure you wash all your curtains, towels, drapes, and covers before you pack them up!
• Breathe easy
Once you have managed the cleaning and sorting tasks of your home, you will be able to shed off a significant burden from your shoulders till the final date of the move. Now you can have an easy time, with your family. Meanwhile, you can prepare an essentials kit, arrange your documents and wrap up anything remaining on your end. You can even research the new city or town you are moving to so you can have a smooth transition! You can find out the places of interest and other important setups – banks, workplaces, markets, stationery, medical stores, hospitals, schools, and colleges, etc. so you can cut out the weirdness of the new place post moving to some extent.
