Move In & Move Out Cleanings

Moving out of a home or apartment is stressful. There are a million details to attend to, from scheduling the mover to packing the boxes, setting up a storage unit account, and donating unwanted furniture. Adding other family members into the mix only makes things more complicated, so the last thing you want to worry about is getting the place cleaned. Hiring a professional move out cleaning service to clean your home as you are moving out will save you time, money, and hassle.

 

Move-Out Cleaners for Renters

 

If you ever want to use your previous landlord as a reference, leaving the home clean will make a great impression and make it easier for you to find your next place. East Bay Homeowners who are moving into a new home and renting out the old one will find that hiring a move out cleaning service in Berkeley makes the process easier. Give your new tenants a positive impression and start the relationship off on a good foot with a spotless home cleaning. Let the professional cleaners do the dirty work so that you can spend time on the things that matter most. 

 

Move Out Cleaners for Homeowners

 

Homeowners who are selling their homes often find that the contract states that the home has to be cleaned and ready for the new buyer. This means that you may have to do a bit more than just sweep up before you hand over the keys. Most people don't realize how much dirt and dust can accumulate over years of living in a home, and it can be overwhelming to try to clean it all while juggling the details of the closing, setting up the new home and dealing with the million details that come along with buying and selling homes. By hiring a cleaning company, you can simply pack your belongings and let the clean team come in and take care of the rest.

 

Move Out Cleaners for Real Estate Companies

 

Selling a home is hard. There may be other properties in the area that are competing for the buyer's attention, and you want your property to stand out. If your last homeowner has moved, hiring a move out cleaning service will help you to get the place up to snuff quickly. If you are planning to stage the home, you will absolutely need a cleaner who can come in and get the place showroom ready. Staged and professionally cleaned homes often command a higher price than homes that have not had the professional touch, so it is worth the investment to have a team of cleaners to give the place a facelift before putting the house on the market.

 

Real estate companies also find it useful to hire cleaning companies for regular cleanings while the home is being shown to prospective buyers. During the showings, buyers can come in tracking mud and dirt into the home, and your cleaners can stop in periodically and make sure the place stays sparkling.

Cleaning is hard. Booking the service shouldn't be. Schedule your cleaning 100% online in 5 minutes.

Move In Cleaning Services

 

Finding a new home is a huge challenge. Between viewing hundreds of different properties, setting up appointments with the agent, negotiating with the owners or landlords, and finally signing a lease or making a purchase, you have taken a lot of time to get settled. Moving from your old place is a hassle as well. Packing, organizing, donating, cleaning, and moving can take weeks. Cleaning out the new place doesn't have to be part of that process. By hiring your local Oakland cleaners, for example, you can take one task off of your plate and enjoying moving into a home that shines.

Move In Cleaning for Landlords

 

When your new tenant walks into the home, what kind of impression will you make? A shining and newly cleaned house helps your tenant to feel at home immediately. Your tenant will feel like they signed the lease on a home that has been taken care of and they’ll be more inclined to stay a long time. 

 

Your last tenant may not have done that great a job of cleaning before they left---most tenants don't. This means that you will likely have to hire a team to do a move out cleanup. Take it a step further and offer move out cleaning services for your tenants as part of their end of lease terms. This way you’re assured to get your properties back to a professional level of cleaning. Hiring a professional move out cleaning service also helps you rent a space faster. We’re more efficient and you’ll only need to have the home cleaned once for it to be done right. 

 

If there has been significant time between the time the last tenant moved and the time the next one moves in, dust can start to accumulate, requiring another cleaning. In addition, if you have been showing the place to potential renters, there may be tracked in dirt and grime that needs to be eliminated.

Move In Cleaning for Tenants

 

No one wants to move into a new home while it’s still dirty.  Landlords will clean a property when a tenant moves out. But that home may sit vacant for a while or accumulate dirt and other debris as it’s shown to other prospective tenants.  A lot of property managers don't take the time to hire cleaning teams but rely on the previous tenant to clean the place before they leave. The previous tenant likely only cleaned well enough to get their security deposit back, and didn't do a thorough move out cleaning.

 

They're not going to attend to the fine details like wiping the baseboard, dusting ceiling fans or cleaning the window tracking. They're not going to diligently clean the appliances to get rid of baked on food. We recommend hiring a professional move out cleaning team to give your new home a once-over to make sure it’s move-in ready.

Move In Cleaning is Cost-Effective

 

It can take hours to clean an average-sized apartment, and for an entire home that has been lived in by a family, the job can be enormous. Most homes have multiple bedrooms, full and half baths, a kitchen, dining area, and common rooms. It can take hours to sweep all of the floors, wash down the baseboards, clean the ceiling fans and mop the floors. You can try to do it all yourself, but who has the time? Will you delegate tasks to your spouse and children? If so, will you have to go behind them and re-clean everything yourself? Our move out cleaners are highly trained and top-rated pros. They have the tools and experience to efficiently clean your home saving you time and money.

 

When you break down the amount of time it takes to clean versus the cost of hiring the professionals, you will see that hiring an Alameda cleaning service for your move in is actually quite affordable.

 

Your cleaning team will know which areas to tackle first and which should be cleaned last. They will use the right products for the job. From special cleaning wipes for your stainless steel appliances to vacuums, mops, and dusters, they have the tools to get the job done. They use cleaning products that are listed on the EPA’s List N for chemicals that are expected to be effective against COVID-19. In addition, perhaps you are outside the Alameda area, no worries, your move in cleaning Berkeley team will clean on your schedule, so you can book them to arrive right before you do.

What’s Not Included In Our Moving Cleaning Services


Our move out cleaning services in Berkeley & surrounding areas offer a number of tasks, from general cleaning to small and fine detailing. Many apartments and home seller contracts require the home to be "broom clean" which is a general way of saying that the home needs a basic level of clean. For more thorough and in-depth cleaning, you will want the services of a professional. When it comes to getting the cleanest home for your move in, it also pays to let the professionals handle it so that you can focus on the other tasks on your list. We are equipped to clean just about everything in a home so that the homeowner is happy and a new family can move in. There are some limitations though.

  • We can't move any large appliances (fridge, stove, laundry machines, etc) to clean around, behind, or under them. We'll clean the top and sides if we can reach those surfaces safely.
  • Refrigerator drip pans
  • Exterior windows
  • Mini-blinds can only be lightly dusted due to their delicate nature.
  • Curtains. These are better washed in the laundry machine or dry-cleaned.
  • Shower liners.
  • Mold or mildew stains. You'll want a mold remediation specialist for this.
  • Large trash removal. We can clean up small debris that would normally go into a kitchen trash bin. ​
