Whether you plan to move out of Utah or just want a new house, now is a great time for selling your Sandy home.
Selling a home takes a lot of prep work, especially if you’re hoping to get top dollar. Deep cleaning before you sell is absolutely essential to your home showing well, looking good in listing photos, and getting quality offers fast.
Deep cleaning isn’t always the most enjoyable project, but the return on your investment is well worth it.
Follow our guide to deep cleaning before selling your Sandy home and you’ll be amazed as your home transforms from bland to dazzling.
It’s difficult to get down to the scrubbing and cleaning when there’s too much stuff in the way. Go through your home room-by-room and throw away any junk before you even pick up a vacuum. Start with anything on the floor. Then move to shelves, countertops and dressers. Dive into closets, under beds and couches, and inside of drawers and cupboards next. Declutter until your house is free of junk. This will make it so much easier to clean!
The kitchen is the biggest selling point of any home, closely followed by the master bathroom. Your kitchen doesn’t have to be state-of-the-art or look like it’s straight out of magazine for it to be a selling point. A well-organized, clean kitchen really helps sell a home.
It’s important to spend a lot of your cleaning efforts in the kitchen. Scrub the counter and backsplash to remove any stains. Wash the fronts and inside of the cabinets. Clean inside and outside of your kitchen appliances. Clean your sink thoroughly and make sure to remove any stains or water rings. A simple mixture of baking soda and dish soap is great for cleaning kitchen counters and sinks. Your kitchen should be sparkling clean when you finish.
The bathrooms are easily the most dreaded job when it comes to cleaning. But the results will be well worth the effort. Pull on those heavy duty cleaning gloves and get to work! Scrub the walls and the baseboards, the sink, the vanity, and the shower. Clean the toilet thoroughly, inside and outside. Don’t neglect the dust-collecting toilet base and the pipes and flooring underneath and behind it. Light a candle when you finish to leave the bathroom smelling as clean as it looks.
The remaining areas of your home can all be cleaned pretty much the same way when you’re prepping for selling your home. Clean from top to bottom, starting with the walls and moving down to the baseboards and finally the floors. Don’t forget to clean the furniture as well. Wipe off fingerprints and dust. Clean the blinds and the windows, including the window sills. When you’re finished, voila! Your home is ready to be sold.
