Cleaning before moving in- ideas?
We're getting closer to our big move-in date (crossing fingers it's before Christmas) and I'm just curious to hear your thoughts on the process of cleaning the house before moving in. Obviously, I know that all floors, services, etc will need to be cleaned/wiped down. I plan to clean the walls somehow but not sure the best/most efficient way to go about it, especially in the areas with 18' ceilings. Do you plan to hire this job out? Also, there's the issue of cleaning all the dust out of the heating/cooling vents. We have done a little of this already while they were still uncovered but have heard of companies that will come and "vacuum" out the whole system. Is this a stupid question?...it's possible that other people don't have to deal with the cleaning at all if GC takes care of it. We are our own GC and doing a lot of the finishing work ourselves. I guess I'm just interested in any tips you all might have. Thanks!
