Moving out Cleaning Checklist

Move-in move-out cleaning checklist is the process that homeowners carry out, or contract out, to clean their homes before and after moving out.

A deep move-out house cleaning checklist may include thorough wall scrubbing, carpet shampooing, floor polishing, cleaning appliances, and cleaning the bathrooms.

Suppose you’re relocating to a new apartment or buying a new house. You will think that are you cleaning yourself or a cleaning service. While hiring a cleaning service can help you check off this task, handling it yourself will save you money and let you tackle the cleaning on your schedule.

Cleaning Tips

  • Clean from top to bottom. We recommend for your regular cleaning routine, dust surfaces high up in the room, like ceiling fans or shelves,
  • Work in stages. Break it into chunks of time, starting with the areas you’ll use the least, such as a guest bedroom.
  • Last-minute cleaning. Even if you clean before the move-out day, there are some things you’ll have to clean right before you leave, like the bathroom. Remember that you’ll likely have to sweep up the dust once the furniture is moved out.
