A move-in cleaning service is a must for anyone about to move into a new home or apartment.

Imagine pulling up to your new place in a moving truck, ready to move everything inside, and you find the home hasn’t been cleaned since the previous occupants moved out. The toilets are grimy. There’s hair in the shower drain. The refrigerator has crumbs and spills all over it. Are you cringing yet? 

This nightmare scenario is a reality for many people who are forced to either move their stuff into a filthy home or search through the moving truck to find their cleaning supplies. Neither option is a good one. If only there were a better way.

Enter the move-in cleaning service, where a professional cleaning company will come clean your new space from top to bottom before you move all of your stuff inside. Here’s everything you need to know about what this service typically includes and how much you can expect to pay.

What Does a Move-In Cleaning Service Entail?

Move-in cleaning services can help you feel good about living in a freshly cleaned home, whether it’s a new build that needs to be cleaned up before you move in or one that was previously occupied. Here’s what the cleaners will typically do to get your home ready to occupy:

  • Clean the inside and outside of all drawers and cupboards
  • Sanitize surfaces, including countertops, showers, bathtubs, sinks, and more
  • Clean out the refrigerator, oven, microwave, and other appliances
  • Vacuum and mop all floors
  • Dust blinds, window frames, light fixtures, and ceiling fans
  • Wash walls, doors, and baseboards

In addition to these common tasks, most cleaners will gladly clean any extra areas you request. Keep in mind, though that it’s not typical for house cleaners to clean windows or carpets, apart from vacuuming. Professional carpet and window cleaning companies generally perform these specialty services.  

How Much Does a Movie-In Cleaning Service Cost?

You should expect to pay more for move-in services than you would for standard cleaning services because it’s much more thorough. Regular cleaning will typically cost between $75 and $175, depending on the size of your home or apartment, but you’ll pay closer to $200–$400 for move-in cleaning. 

Before you start to get too worried about the cost, though, remember the cringe of trying to move into a home filled with someone else’s grime. Most people at that moment would pay just about anything to have their home professionally cleaned, but if you wait until you get there, you might have a hard time finding a cleaner who can drop everything and come to your rescue. If you know you’ve got a move coming up, plan ahead and schedule your move-in service today.
