Max-force cleaning plan and the products to achieve it
May 26, 2014 6:42 AM Subscribe
After a tumultuous nearly two years of apartment living following my separation, my kids and I are finally moving into a townhouse. (Yay!) It's a rental, but one I hope we can stay in for quite a while - it seems pretty fantastic! I have a week between when I get the keys and when I have movers scheduled, so I'd like to take the opportunity to get the place cleaner than it's ever been. Hoping to come up with a really solid cleaning plan, and a list of all the products I need to get it done. Suggestions and tips are more than welcome!

A few points:
- It's a 3-level, 3 bedroom townhouse with two full baths and two half baths, a living room, dining room, kitchen, finished basement rec room, and unfinished laundry/storage area. There is a deck as well. Floors are a mix of hardwood, vinyl, tile and carpet.
- I have no concerns about the environmental sustainability of the cleaning products; I only want what's most effective for this one-time deep clean. (I also love the smell of bleach!)
- I have no pets, and my kids won't be in the house for almost 2 weeks after I do this cleaning.
Again, any ideas on what specific tasks I should be doing, the order I should do them in, and the products needed to do them would be so helpful. Thanks!
