For some people moving to a new place is a fun and exciting thing to do, but for some, it is a long tiring process. Yes, there are a lot of things to do when we’re moving from one house to another, like finding the perfect place, then cleaning it and later packing your infinite stuff. Which seems quite easy in words, but actually, it is a long tiring thing.
Before you move out to your new place, check this list that you’ve done this all or not:
- Find a new house
- Book a movers
- Pack your essential stuff in a handbag
- Pack your food and kitchen utensils
- Pay all the bills
- Collect all your clothes and pack in a suitcase
- Clean the house
You’ve done all the things properly but forget to clean the existing apartment. Move out cleaning is the process where you cleaned and washed your apartment before shifting to a new place. It is a necessary thing to do so that you can get your deposit back from the landlord! Nowadays, it is a must thing for the tenants to deposit some amount as a security deposit. whenever you move out of the building, the owner will return this amount after he checks that everything is fine.
One of the main reasons why tenants don’t get their deposit is that they don’t clean the apartment properly before moving out. So, to ensure that you get your money back, we are here to guide you to do the cleaning process in the right way. You can either do it all by yourself or just call a cleaning service. Yes, it is quite common to call a move out cleaning services in the United States and other parts of the world. They are fast and clean all the areas of your house in no time.
Here’s is a checklist, so, check out all the things before moving out:
Living Room and Bedroom
The cleaning services have professionals, and they very well know things. They individually clean all the rooms. And if you’re doing this all by yourself, don’t forget to wipe out the light switches as well. Clean everything nicely and remove dust and cobwebs. If your room has a ceiling fan, then clean it also.
Clean up the Dirty Floors
Floors are the first thing that we notice while entering any house, right? So carefully mop them. Buy a good floor cleaner and wipe every corner of the floor. There are various cleaners that come in the market for various types of floors, such as wood, vinyl, or concrete. If there is any carpet on the floor, then vacuum it.
Bathrooms and Laundry Room
A bathroom should be cleaned out like the other parts of the house. Clean the toilet bowls, tanks, and showers. Unstained the mirror and bathroom countertop and finally disinfected the whole bathroom. Do the same for the laundry room, clean all the appliances.
Tip: Ask the cleaning service whether their service includes bathroom cleaning or not.
Due to regular cooking, the kitchen gets dirty quickly. So, before moving out, clean this space as well. Counters and all the appliances should be wiped down. Scrub the sink and faucet. Clean the gas stove and all the cabinets, including refrigerator and dishwasher.
Windows and Doors
Don’t forget to clean the windows and doors of all the rooms. I know it is our least favorite thing to do in household chores, but you have to do it. As we use these things regularly, that’s why they have dirty fingerprints and dirt from outside on them. Professional cleaners will clean windows frames, sills, shades, and door handles.
After you’re done with cleaning the inside of your house, it’s time to clean up the outdoor area. If your home has an open outdoor space, it is important to maintain them as well before leaving, right? So, cut the grass, pull the weeds, and remove all the stuff from the garage and storage area.
If your apartment has stairs, then do scrub them and clean all the marks and stains. Believe me, after all this cleaning process, your house will look a million times better!!
And the last thing to do is mop the entryway. Don’t forget to say goodbye to your old house and be thankful for it as it provided the shelter.
You can save the money by doing all this moving out checklist all by yourself. But if you’re a working person, then it’s pretty hard to do all this stuff. Then just call a move out cleaning service and leave everything to move out cleaners.
Their service may include things like:
- Wipe down baseboards
- Scrub shower and bathtub

Tick Mark the Chores from the Checklist
But it is always good to ask the cleaning company what services are included and whatnot. So, you can take care of the rest of the things. There are many benefits of move out cleaning service such as you can focus on other things, you will save time, and there are high chances of getting back your deposit money (and we all want that!).
