What You Should Know About Move Out Cleaning

by | Sep 3, 2023

Move out cleaning is more than just a question of politeness or leaving a good impression. Granted, these aspects are important as well. However, if you are leaving a rental property, a certain amount of cleaning is also a prerequisite for the return of your move-in deposit. (Speaking of deposit returns, take a look at our previous article about this particular subject!) Today let’s have a look at what you need to do beyond moving out your furniture and moving boxes.

Your move out cleaning checklist

For starters, here is a great moving-out cleaning checklist to provide you with an overview of what needs to be taken care of. For your convenience, there is also a variety of print-out checklists available from various sources. Granted, they have not been written by our own team, but the purpose of this post is not to reinvent the proverbial wheel – at least not of cleaning.

As a rule of thumb, if you have moved into your place in a certain state of tidiness and cleanliness, try to achieve that state again when moving out. Imagine what you expect when moving into your new place:

  • removal of visible dirt, soap scum, cobwebs, trash, and debris
  • clean grout
  • repair of wall damages from nails, screws, etc.

In case you have a written lease agreement, you might want to have a look at the included specifics about the cleaning and repairs required when you move out.

As it is so often the case for things that need doing: There are usually professional service providers. Therefore, if you prefer having someone else take care of the cleaning, look for maid and cleaning services in your area.

Adan and Fil were efficient and handled items with care. I would use them again.
These guys were great. Very polite and professional. Hard workers and the move went well with no damages!And Gary is very patient with me as I had difficulties trying to get him paid through Zelle and had to get a business check but he was very patient and we got it all figured out. I would recommend this company for local moves.
Highly recommend this company. From estimate to final move, we received the best service from the office staff who explained and answered all our questions and the 2 young men who moved us taking all precautions with our items. Thank you for your transparency and professionalism.
