You’ve decluttered, staged & repaired. Before you put your home on the market, make it shine by giving it a deep clean.
A clean, staged home not only looks, smells, & shows better, it just feels more move in ready. A spotless home often gives buyers a piece of mind that it was well cared for & needs “less work” than a comparable home. It can even feel more solid & of better quality than a home that hasn’t had that same attention to detail.
On top of the obvious chores, either commit to tackling these often neglected areas or hire a professional cleaner before you open up your home for showings.
Do a cobweb sweep of ceilings and corners.
Take down overhead light shades and globes and wash them up in hot soapy water.

Clean cabinetry, especially around the hardware.
Clean the inside & outside of your refrigerator, stove, microwave & dishwasher.
Wash your switch plates, doors, door knobs, hardware & baseboards.
Steam clean carpets & rugs.
Wash blankets, pillow cases, duvets, etc.
