Move-In & Move-Out Cleaning

Move-In & Move-Out Cleaning


You’re moving into a new apartment. It’s the start of your journey, somewhere new and fresh. It’s exciting to think about calling a new place home, but don’t forget to clean your old home before leaving. The landlord can keep part of your deposit if you neglect this task. Angelic Maid Cleaning Services can handle all your move-out cleaning duties so that your apartment is as clean as it was when you moved in.


Clean the kitchen

Clean the kitchen thoroughly. It’s probably the dirtiest room in your apartment, so it needs to be cleaned well before you leave. Wipe down all surfaces with a disinfecting cloth or spray, and scrub away any residue or grime. Make sure to clean under and behind appliances (stove and refrigerator) and cabinets, too.

Clean the bathroom

Wash the bathroom thoroughly before you leave your apartment. Scrub down the floors, walls, and shower/bathtub with antibacterial soap and water using a sponge or washcloth. Rinse off all of the soap scum after you’re done scrubbing, then wipe down all of the surfaces with a disinfecting cloth or spray. Make sure to scrub behind toilets and sinks as well!

Clean the bedrooms

Make sure that every surface is cleaned in each bedroom — including ceiling fans! Then vacuum all carpets, curtains, and upholstery before vacuuming again with an upholstery attachment (this will get rid of pet hair). Finally, wipe down all surfaces.

Likewise, when you do your move-in cleaning, follow these steps to make sure your new place is clean as a whistle.


Start with the kitchen

The kitchen is the heart of any home, so make sure it’s in tip-top shape when you move in. All you need to do is wipe down the counters and cabinets, sweep or vacuum the floor and wipe down appliances (including the stovetop).

Move to the Bathroom

Wipe down sinks and countertops, scrub toilets (if they’re porcelain), and clean showers/tubs using bleach solution as a disinfectant. Then take care of any grout stains by scrubbing them with an abrasive sponge or brush until they’re gone.

Living Room and Bedroom

Dust surfaces in the living room and bedrooms with a soft cloth dipped in warm water and mild detergent; wipe down window sills and dust blinds. Sweep, mop, and vacuum hardwood floors.

Cleaning Tips:

  • Purchase a plastic tote with a handle and keep all of your cleaning supplies in it.
  • Take it with you from room to room to avoid making extra trips for supplies
  • Keep a stash of old wash rags for cleaning cloths
  • Use rubber gloves when cleaning ovens, sinks, and toilets

You should plan ahead to make sure that moving out is as stress-free and easy as possible so you can focus on starting your new journey in your new home. If you would like help with your moving in or moving out cleaning, contact a professional cleaning company to save time.
