Cleaning Guide: Steps

Step 1: General Examination of the Property

When you are in a property you want to take a look at, you should examine thoroughly all the rooms. Before you start the “tour”, however, look around for something visible like dust, dirt, mould.

Check if floors are clean. Take off your shoes for a while and walk on the ground. Then check your socks. If some dirt is noticeable on them, then the floor is not cleaned properly.

Smell the air. If it’s stale, either the premises has not been aired for a while or there is mould/must in the premises. Check the walls, under the carpet and under the furniture which are oftentimes overlooked in the cleaning process and tend to accumulate far more dust than other surfaces. Investigate for cobwebs, cracks and crevices in the walls.

Step 2: Bathroom

Bathrooms are a favourite place for germs, mould and mildew. This part of the house is absolutely a must-see in your “tour”. Make sure you look for mould and mildew, soap scum and limestone on the surfaces and walls. Check the bath tub, sink, behind the toilet. Look at the pipes. Also be sure to examine the toilet bowl. If the property is old and has not been renovated recently, there is a chance that some of the areas have already lost their shine. However, dirt will still be tangible so take a good look at the room.
