If you’ll be moving in the near future, you’ve likely got a lot on your plate already. From getting all your belongings packed up to coordinating the logistics of your move, this can be a stressful time in anybody’s life. Still, one thing you won’t want to forget about when planning your move is making sure your old place is clean when you move out—and that your new place is pristine when you move in!

Take the stress out of your upcoming move by hiring Planet Maids for your move in/move out cleaning services.

Benefits of Move In Cleaning

Unless you’re moving into a brand-new place, there’s a good chance the people who lived there before you didn’t do a completely thorough cleaning when they moved out. Even if the place looks clean, there are areas that may have been missed. Some commonly missed spots, for example, include behind washers and dryers, around baseboards, and inside appliances.

Even if you are moving into a brand-new residence, there could be construction dust and debris left behind that you don’t want to contaminate your indoor air.

Moving into a new place signifies a fresh start—so don’t you want to start off with a literally clean slate? Having a professional clean your space from top to bottom can save you the time and hassle of doing it yourself before you move in. After all, don’t you already have enough on your plate? At the same time, you don’t want to move your furniture and other belongings into a space that’s not pristine.

Enjoy the peace of mind in knowing your new place is clean from top to bottom without having to lift a finger. Planet Maids is happy to offer a thorough move in cleaning services to suit your needs.

Benefits of Move Out Cleaning

In addition to our move in cleaning services, you may also want to schedule a move out cleaning at your old place. Again, you have enough to worry about in planning your upcoming move as it is. The last thing you’ll want to do after you move all your belongings out of your old place is to have to return and mop floors, scrub appliances, and dust solid surfaces.

When you have a professional move out cleaning done, you can enjoy the peace of mind in knowing that your place will be extensively cleaned by an experienced pro. As a result, you may have a better chance of getting your security deposit back. A lot of times, landlords or property managers may retain part or all of a tenant’s security deposit due to messes left behind. With a professional cleaning service, you can rest assured that your place will be left as clean and pristine as possible for a smoother move.
