Why hire a contract cleaner before moving into a new house

Moving into a new house can be really exciting, but only if it’s clean. It’s possible that the prior occupant or owner didn’t clean the space thoroughly, so it’s always a good idea to do a deep clean before moving in. There are two possibilities: do it yourself, or hire a professional cleaner.

IWESCO provides once-off cleaning services all across South Africa, which is a great solution in this circumstance. Their teams are well-trained and only use eco-friendly cleaning products to perform a thorough job without harming the environment. Here are some reasons why hiring a cleaning service is preferable to performing the task yourself.

Higher levels of sanitisation

Before you move in, your home will be thoroughly cleaned, disinfected and sanitised thanks to the use of specialised equipment and chemicals by a professional cleaning service. Choose a professional cleaner that has the technical expertise to provide a thorough deep clean of every room and surface in your new home.

There are crevices that harbour dirt, dust and bacteria in the kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. A professional cleaner will be able to target these challenging areas and make sure there are no germs when you move in. If you work a regular job, dedicating the time to a deep clean may be tricky so hiring a professional may be the better possible option.

Cleaning appliances

Certain permanent appliances, like stoves, dishwashers and washing machines, are sold with some properties. Without the proper equipment and cleaning agents, these appliances can be difficult to clean. A professional cleaner will have the correct chemicals to remove the grime from your new household appliances because bleach alone doesn’t always get the job done. 

Addressing the toilet

When it comes to cleaning the house, the toilet and bathroom are areas that need the most attention. It’s essential to make sure that these areas are well cleaned and sanitised before moving in. For best results, leave toilet and bathroom cleaning to a professional as bacteria and mould are frequently found in these areas of the house.

Although porcelain and tiles are generally easy to clean, bathrooms and toilets should not be overlooked. Do not move into a new home that has mould growing in the tile grout or that has stains in the bathtub. A cleaning professional will be able to effectively eliminate things like these, providing you and your family with the cleanest environment possible.

Pet hair removal and pest control

Pet hair finds its way into the carpets and ends up in every nook and cranny of a house. Although it can be useful, a vacuum cleaner is not entirely effective. To completely get rid of the hair from the carpets and rugs can take a lot of time and effort.

A contract cleaner will use industrial equipment that makes this work much easier. Additionally, they may also provide long-lasting pest control services that can eliminate fleas, mites, and other critters left behind by previous pets. Your new home will be clean and free of pests thanks to a two-for-one service such as that offered by IWESCO.
