For first-time property owners and renters, nothing can be more exciting than finally moving to their new home. But there is one thing that they won’t look forward to: cleaning their home.
Whether it’s cleaning the house or flat before settling in or including this in their daily and weekly chores, there is nothing fun and thrilling about keeping one’s abode neat and tidy.
As a first-time homeowner or tenant, it is highly likely that you will find the task of residential cleaning challenging. But by avoiding the usual cleaning mistakes below, you will have an easier and less stressful time keeping it in a spotless condition.
1. Using dirty cleaning tools and supplies
Most of the time, buying new cleaning tools and other supplies is not a priority for new homeowners and tenants.
