It turned out that the cleaners I hired weren’t that great. I discovered that the oven was still dirty. Upon further inspection, they’ve missed lots of bits. This means I have to clean the whole house myself before I can feel comfortable enough to unpack anything properly.
I have so far cleaned most of the kitchen. There’s only the fridge-freezer, the airing cupboard and the table and chairs still to do. And the floor.
Next is the shower room and the bathroom.
