  • Rapid Clean-Ups: Every professional housekeeper will tell you that they keep to keeping everything clean and in order is to stay on top of things. One of the very best ways to accomplish this is by spending just a few minutes every morning and evening doing a quick little clean-up. This is similar to speed cleaning.Go ahead and take just 5 to 7 minutes walking around the house. Straighten things up and organize a bit. Do this both in the morning and in the evening. The amazing thing is that this takes up so little time. This also helps to maintain a semblance of order during your move.
  • Vacuum: Running the vacuum around the house actually, can make a big difference. Not only will it pick up the dirt, but it is also great for all the dust and assorted other messiness. Just having dirt or debris on even one section of your carpet or floor can make the whole room seem dirty, so the vacuuming instantly improves the appearance.
  • Put Things Away: You will also notice that while moving things tend to get moved or just simply strewn around the house. While you are doing you morning and nightly walk-throughs, just grab the assorted items that have been moved out of place. Put them in empty boxes or wherever it will be most convenient to get them packed and/or on the truck.
  • Wipe & Wash: Yes, your counter tops, tables, and even sinks will become dirty. In fact, chances are you won't even know what happened to make them dirty. As you are going about your business, carry a damp cloth or paper towel and give the dirty surfaces a quick little 30-second wipe down. Bathrooms and kitchen are the two most important places to focus on for this quick cleaning.
  • Pillows, Blankets, Bed Nothing can make a room look dirty and ugly quicker than an unmade bed. Just by taking a few minutes to give the room a sense of order once again can dramatically change its appearance. The same goes for pillows and blankets (and other assorted bedding) that is just simply thrown about. Fluff and fold them for an immediate change of look and feel.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
