Then we’re going to move onto these deeper cleaning items:
Inside and outside of cabinets, drawers and shelves
Inside and outside of the fridge, oven, dishwasher, microwave, washer and dryer
If your fridge is on wheels we’re going to pull it out and clean under and behind it. We’re not going to pull your oven out to clean under and behind it unless you specifically request it and understand the risks associated with it which are: 1) ovens don’t always go back in flush with the counter tops, and 2) ovens sometimes scratch floors when they are being puled out.
What’s the Difference Between a Move-in and a Move-out Clean?
The difference between a move in cleaning and a move out cleaning is that during a move in cleaning, we’re not cleaning the insides of your cabinets, drawers, and shelves, and we’re not cleaning the inside of your appliances. Typically, when people book a move in cleaning, the home has already recently been deep cleaned because it’s recently been leased or sold.
And so there’s just people that have been in and out of the home maybe viewing the home, but it’s not really dirty. So it’s a lot faster to complete a true move in cleaning than it is to complete a move out cleaning. If your home is a little grimy, you’re going to want to move out cleaning.
Does My Home Need to be Empty for my Move-out Clean?
A move in or a move out cleaning needs to be completed in a home that’s completely empty. So it means that nobody’s living there anymore, there’s no furniture, trash, personal items, food in the refrigerator, or the cabinets. That’s what a move in or move out cleaning is describing. If you have items in your home, That’s totally fine, but that means we’re going to set you up with a different type of cleaning, and we want to know that.
So maybe you just want to have our premium deluxe cleaning. It’s important that we get you set up for the right job, the right service, so that it goes well, your team is prepared for your job, and we have all of the correct supplies, equipment, and a proper amount of time booked to complete your cleaning.
So if your home is filled with things, it’s not a move out cleaning, it’s not a move in cleaning, it’s probably a premium deep clean.
Here’s How we Estimate and Price Move-out Cleans
Move in and move out cleanings are, uh, priced a little bit different than most of our services. These are hourly services, so we let you know how many hours we expect for the home to take, and we’ll give you a range, and what the hourly rate is. If your home falls outside of the normal range of what we see 85 90% of the time, it may take us longer to complete your service than what we estimated.
However, we have over 500 Google verified reviews, we’ve done thousands of cleaning, we have 30 staff members, I’ve been doing this for 10 years. We’re usually pretty accurate. However, sometimes it is going to take us longer to complete your move in or move out cleaning than what we told you. And in those cases, what we’re going to do, as soon as we realize that there is a problem with your estimate, we’re going to call, text, and email you and let you know what we can do.
So we’re going to give you two options. We’ll say, do you want us to complete this service today? Um, and pay for the additional hours, or do you want us to limit the scope of work and focus just on particular items? Again, this is something that’s rare, but it does happen. And in another video, I’m going to, um, give some examples of home owners and home livers who might, uh, be at higher risk for having a longer cleaning than what we have estimated.
