Our Top Recommended Cleaning “Must-Haves” for DIY Home Staging

When it comes to selling your home, cleanliness says a LOT to your potential buyers (so does dirtiness, for that matter).

Home buyers are some of the most judgemental visitors that will ever darken your door (and understandably so, right? — they’re trying to decide whether they want to invest thousands of dollars in your house). They perceive a clean, tidy home as well-maintained, cared for, and generally more appealing. A home with dirty floors, mildewy showers, and dusty air vents are major turn-offs and red flags that can sabotage the sale.

Not sure if your home is quite ready for showings? Ask yourself this: is my bathtub clean enough that a complete stranger would feel absolutely comfortable soaking naked in it?
