Selling Your Home? Time To Clean!

Believe it or not, Jersey Steamer has gotten many a call from a real estate agent who was working on making sure that a home is presentable for an open house showing. Since we have established our top quality reputation as the best professional cleaning company in Monmouth, we often have realtors as well as homeowners ask us for advice on how to keep things clean in between viewings. While the best advice we can give is frequent cleaning, the fact is that most people will notice that your home has been professionally cleaned regardless. Here’s a quick checklist to help make your home as sellable as possible.

  1. Make sure that your carpets are cleaned. This is a must. Dirty carpets are a telltale sign of an unkempt home.
  2. Polish or professionally clean your tile. Tile can make a huge difference in how people view your home. Tile that looks good as new will get more buyers – especially if you’re trying to show off your bathroom or kitchen!
  3. Clean your gutters. It’s the small things that count.
  4. Drapery and upholstery should be cleaned as well. This shows attention to detail that most other homeowners may not have.
  5. If your walls have been exposed to smoke, or were stained, a fresh coat of paint can do wonders. You’d be shocked at how great a fresh coat of paint can look in a home. It can actually make or break a sale.
  6. Windows, sinks, and tubs should be cleaned, but it’s not necessary to have them professionally done unless they are really in bad shape. Good, regular cleaning is a major indicator that you can likely just give your bathroom and kitchen utilities a nice extra scrub before the big day. However, if you let your tub rust, you may want to have a professional cleaner do some work.
  7. Put away knickknacks in storage. An open house should actually have an open-ish look to it, and family clutter often can make it very difficult to potential buyers to see themselves living in your home. A quick storage unit rental can make or break it.
  8. When in doubt, ask your realtor. You’d be shocked at how many little things need to be cleaned, polished and prepped before an open house. Ask them for advice – don’t worry, we at Jersey Steamer will be rooting for you every step of the way.
