Tips for cleaning your home before selling

If you’re ready to sell your home and buy a new home, it’s time to clean so that potential buyers get a favourable impression when visiting.

Here are some quick and easy tips to make that task easier:

Think about smells

You’ve been living in your home for a long time, so common mild smells may linger in such a way that you don’t notice them. So keep a keen “nose” on the detail and do your best to root out any bad smells.

Common smells around the home include those in the backyard from anything rotten

Wash your walls

Give your walls a shine by giving them a good wash. Just remember to protect the floor from the water & soap.

Wash your carpets

Washing your carpets is a great way to improve the look and bring them back to their original sparkle. You can rent a carpet washer down at your local Coles, or you can pay a professional to come and clean your carpet for a few hundred dollars.

Dust everything

You’ll never know how far a duster can go when cleaning your home. You never want your prospective buyers to touch a surface and end up with dusty fingers.

So give your surfaces a good dust, especially those higher surfaces and light fixtures.

We hope this short guide has helped you in your effort to sell your home!
