Spring is the time for tenants to move! Don't forget a proper clean up!

6/2/2021 (Permalink)

New York comes alive in the spring and people get MOVING!


When tenants move it is very similar to a post-construction clean-up job and it is important to make sure that your building or complex is safe, clean, and ready for tenants.

Post-construction and moving cleanups can be tricky. When moving into a new space it makes a huge difference to start with a clean slate.

We created a cleaning checklist that explains everything you need to do to complete a post-construction/tenant move-out cleanup job right.

  1. Vacuum all carpets
  2. Sweep or dust hard floor surfaces
  3. Sponge countertops
  4. Mop hard floors
  5. Clean all windows
  6. Wipe all mirrors
  7. Clean all windowsills
  8. Clean exterior lights
  9. Remove paint from/clean hinges
  10. Dust all handrails and banisters
  11. Clean toilets (don’t forget the base & tank!)
  12. Remove boxes, tape, plastic, stickers, etc
  13. Clean and dust the tops and sides of doors
  14. Sanitize/clean doorknobs and light switches
  15. Clean cabinets inside and out
  16. Dust grates and vents
  17. Clean the inside of closets
  18. Wipe down the interior masonry
  19. Pick up trash & debris on the lawn
  20. Clean all appliances (pull out and clean)
  21. Wipe down tables and chairs
  22. Add mats at all doors to catch outside dirt
  23. Freshen up the air by opening windows
  24. Empty all trash cans/recycling bins and dispose of all trash

This list should give you a good outline to start but some people would prefer to pay an expert.
For jobs that are too big, require quick turn around or are just overwhelming please call in SERVPRO of New Rochelle and White Plains.

You can trust us to make sure the process goes smoothly.

Moving can be super stressful. 
Take out the cleaning component by trusting us to do it for you.
