Seller cleaning Part 2

Yesterday I posted an article about seller cleaning.  Today the goal is to provide a basic checklist that will help the seller fulfill their part of the contract and also provide a satisfying move in experience for the buyers as well.

Even though most know about when they need to be packed up and moved out, there is the  added part of cleaning.  Many do well cleaning to leave thier home, some are in a rush and don’t put alot of effort into it and other’s as mentioned yesterday just have a different version of clean.

Here is a checklist you should plan on doing for your move out day (some items can be done as you pack):

  • Wipe down cabinets on the outside and clean the shelving off on the inside
  • Self Clean the oven inside and clean off the outside
  • Clean inside and out of the microwave
  • Clean the inside and outside of the refrigerator and freezer
  • Sweep and mop all floors
  • Vacuum all carpets
  • dump all garbage cans
  • Dust off remaining attached shelving, window sills, anything that appears to be dusty
  • Wipe down the walls that larger furniture may have been in front of they can be dusty as well
  • Clean out the sinks
  • Clean the tubs and toilets
  • remove lint from dryer
  • Sweep garage

 

There is also the detail of items being left ie: lumber, paint, freezers, old vacuums, lawn mowers, or other large objects that you decide you cannot move like sofas, large hutches or pianos.  If you have not already confirmed through the realtors that the new buyers want the larger objects you should remove, sell or dispose of these items.

Lumber and CURRENT paint cans can be left.  However, not 20 cans that have been used over 30 years. I am sure none of you have done this, or had it done to you ( toungue in cheek here). There are places oil and stains can be taken to for safe disposal.  Acrylic, waterbased paints should be opened to dry out.  I do suggest the paints you should dry out well before you list your home so they are not an issue and already thrown away.

Hopefully this will help you at some point and or help a friend if you share this.

Thank you
