Whether you rent or own, it is important to maintain the condition of the property. When the lease is up or the home is sold, it is common expected that the residence be left clean. There are so many things for the vacating party to think about that cleaning often does not make the list. If a move out cleaning service does the cleaning is done haphazardly, it can result in failure to receive the full security deposit or bad feelings on the part of the realtor.
Some cleaning service companies provide move out residential cleaning. During the process, the entire residence is professionally cleaned to the standards expected within the lease terms or by the purchasing party. Many of these companies also provide commercial cleaning for businesses vacating their leased space.

Dust vents and tile surfaces are also cleaned and disinfected and the floors are cleaned with a damp mop. Fixtures are shined, cobwebs are removed from corners, and trash is gathered from the room.
In the bedrooms and living room, the carpets are vacuumed and any hard floors are cleaned and mopped. If furniture is being left behind, it is cleaned, dusted, and polished as appropriate. Window moldings and ledges are dusted, cobwebs are removed, and contact areas like light switches and door handles are sanitized.
The cleaning service will also wash the windowsills and inside of all windows. The cabinets, sink, tile, refrigerator, microwave, and countertops in the kitchen will be cleaned and disinfected.
