Move In Cleaning Checklist

Who doesn’t want a fresh start?

A thorough move in cleaning gives new homeowners and tenants peace of mind knowing that their new living space has been scrubbed and disinfected from top to bottom.

We always recommend performing a move in clean before you unload your personal belongings. This ensures that every inch of the room gets the attention that it needs.

Now that the rooms are empty – or nearly empty – it’s time to get your home or apartment looking even better than it did when you first moved in. Many house or apartment contracts require a “broom-clean.” Others require a thorough checklist that covers everything from baseboards to the microwave oven.
