Why You Should Hire a Move-Out Cleaning Service

When moving out of a leased apartment or home, you’ll likely face an overwhelming “to-do list.” Packing up your belongings, securing a moving truck, finalizing your new residence, cleaning the place you’re moving from, the list seems to go on and on. DIY move-out cleaning often requires more time and energy than you originally planned. Dirt and grime get covered over by furniture, appliances, and personal items.

Once you start moving things, all that dirt is now in plain view. The good news is that you don’t have to do all the dirty work alone. Consider hiring a cleaning service instead. That way, you can focus on the other essential aspects of your move. Book with a trusted company like Clean Nation Company and enjoy the peace of mind knowing your move-out clean will be performed by cleaning experts.

Time is precious when you’re up against a moving deadline. And cleaning your home as you’re trying to pack up your life is probably the last thing you want to be doing.  Hiring a professional cleaning service can help free up your time and reduce moving stress, which happens to be a real thing.

A recent survey of 1,000 Americans found that the most stressful event in life is moving. The survey, conducted by OnePoll, found that 45% of respondents say moving is by far the most stressful event in life, followed by going through a breakup or divorce (44%), and getting married (33%).

Getting Your Security Deposit Back

Outside of property damage, the likelihood of getting your deposit back increases when you hire a move-out cleaning service. Landlords can be very meticulous; some will take every opportunity to withhold your deposit. Don’t give them any reason to do so. Request a cleaning checklist from your landlord for your move-out cleaners to follow so that everything gets done. 

Also, consider taking photos of your rental after your place has been cleaned, which will provide documentation of the condition of the property. Lastly, request a final inspection from the landlord to ensure everything has been done as per your lease agreement. 

Because a move-out cleaning often occurs when the furniture is moved out, a more thorough cleaning is guaranteed. Plus, a professional company has the right cleaning equipment and tools to do the job correctly. An expert cleaning crew from Clean Nation Company will arrive at your home prepared and equipped to complete a thorough cleaning.  


As much as possible, you want your move to be quick, easy, and stress-free. Considering the benefits outlined above, it should be easy to decide to hire a move-out cleaning service.
