Cost of Moving: Items you need to keep your home clean

Brooms are important for every home.

Brooms are important for every home.

You will likely be purchasing a large number of items when moving to your new home, or looking through your belongings while packing to see what your new home needs. When it comes to cleaning the home, there are many things that are necessary to ensure you keep your area as tidy as possible. If you can obtain these - or bring them with you if you already own them - the new home will have the tools needed to keep it clean.

Some floor cleaners important to have around

Your best friend when cleaning should be your vacuum. These are vital to any home or apartment, regardless of your floor type. However, it is necessary to have an option that is not only practical, but actually fits your needs. Homes can have differing floor types, and keeping a vacuum that can deal with all of these is recommended. If your old vacuum isn't able to adequately take care of multiple floor types, such as carpet, hardwood and tile, you may want to look for another option. Vacuums typically cost around $200, but this price can fluctuate significantly, depending on desired options.

You will also want to have a dustpan, brush and broom for your home. While they likely won't be your primary cleaning products, they can help quickly take care of dry spills, as well as lingering dust and dirt around your home that you missed with a vacuum. Luckily, these items only will cost a few dollars each and are typically rather durable for their purpose.

Cleaning devices for furniture and ornaments

The new residence will get dusty, no matter what you do. Keep in mind that this doesn't have to be hard to clean, even if it is a nuisance. A duster could be a great solution to your problem, as this will help keep furniture looking clean. Also, dusters can help keep walls from getting messy, and ceiling fans looking clean. These should only cost about $10, and if you want to pay a little more, you can get one with an extension arm to reach high areas.

Finally, if you don't want a duster, you can just as easily use an old rag to accomplish this task. By using some furniture cleaner, this method can be just as successful.
