Selling your home is a huge undertaking involving large amounts of money, so it’s not surprising that potential buyers sometimes require some persuasion. While nothing is guaranteed, there are things you can do to nudge them in the right direction. One of the best ways to do that is to leave a good impression by having them over for a house viewing when it’s all neat and clean. More than a good first impression, it shows potential buyers that you take good care of your home, so they won’t be moving into a dilapidated place. If you’re looking to sell your home, here are some cleaning tips that you can either adopt yourself or engage move-out cleaning services in Singapore to do the cleaning for you.
Get Rid of Clutter
Buyers want to enter a home that is spacious and inviting, not cluttered and messy. A cluttered home gives off the impression that the space isn’t big enough to hold all their belongings when they move in. Buyers may even have safety concerns when they come face to face with piles of clutter in and outside your home. Decluttering your home is fairly straightforward — get started by discarding any unwanted items from every corner of your home, and organise what’s left. It is also a great opportunity to donate unwanted items to charity, or develop good recycling habits. If you have too much clutter to get rid of, consider seeking professional help from home cleaning services in Singapore.
Clean Your Appliances
Over time, the appliances in your home will accumulate dirt both inside and outside, and this is particularly true for tabletop/tower fans, microwave ovens, or even your fridge. It goes without saying that you should thoroughly wipe these surfaces, but beyond that, the interior requires cleaning too, from fan blades, to the microwave walls, to the fridge’s interior (including its contents). Vinegar and baking soda are both great for removing stains and odours. If you haven’t cleaned them in ages, the accumulated dirt could prove too stubborn to remove, in which case you could seek professional cleaning services in Singapore to lend a hand.

Clean All Parts of Your Windows and Sliders
Your windows and sliders are probably more easily noticed as they’re literally the window of light to your home, and if your windows are dirty and full of prints, buyers can easily spot them. Moreover, cleaning your windows is more than just wiping down the glass; you should also pay attention to the window tracks, sills, as well as the flat surfaces of the windows. Particularly, accumulated dirt on your window sills looks extremely unappealing. If you have windows that are too high up to reach, get move-out cleaning services in Singapore to clean them for you.
Get Rid of Mould & Mildew
Commonly found in dark or damp places around your home, mould and mildew are two things that most, if not all buyers will be checking for, as they are a clear indication of how the previous owner treats the home. What’s worse, mould and mildew can even cause illnesses if left unattended. Bathrooms are where you’d commonly find mould and mildew, making them a good starting point. Check surfaces, bathroom curtains, doors, crevasses, and even under the sink — basically, places you wouldn’t normally check. Don’t know where else to look? Home cleaning services in Singapore can help, as they come with years of home cleaning experience and know where exactly to find these unwanted fungal residents.
Clean the Grout
Grout is basically the paste that fills crevasses, namely those between wall or floor tiles. As you can imagine, dirt can accumulate in them over time, causing your walls or floor to look rather unsightly no matter how clean the tiles are. Again, vinegar and baking soda are great for removing stubborn stains and cleaning dirty grout. However, professional cleaning services in Singapore can probably do it more quickly if you need to sell your home urgently.
